Property description

In this peaceful neighborhood, you will find the perfect base camp for your Alaskan adventure. The Hinterland Chalet is designed to provide you with a cozy stay in Girdwood with full kitchen and sleeping amenities. This timber frame chalet boasts beautiful redwood siding. Built by climbers in 1983, the recycled redwood came from Anchorage's original REI store.

On the main floor, the kitchen and living area are surrounded by windows. The kitchen and bath have just been remodeled with new floors and counter tops. The floors are radiant heated for toasty toes no matter what the temperature outside. The bedroom on the main floor has a full sized bed and closet. The futon in the living room also folds out to a full sized bed. The main loft hosts a queen sized log frame bed where the moon shines bright on clear nights. This is the master bedroom of the house with a full closet. Up the ladder you can escape to the tree room for reading, relaxing, or gazing out through the forest. Complimentary coffee, tea, hot cocoa, and spiced cider are provided for your enjoyment.

The large deck with seating in front is perfect for relaxing after a hike, or, if you love a bonfire, warm up by the fire bowl. This 1,000 square foot chalet is well suited for families and friends in groups up to six people.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We have lived in Alaska for 30 years and love this beautiful state. We feel fortunate to be raising our family here and look forward to the time we get to spend in Girdwood skiing, snowboarding, hiking and just enjoying the laid back, friendly atmosphere.

Why the Owner Chose Girdwood:
We chose this particular property due to its location. Located on a third of an acre on a quiet, dead end road, it is very peaceful. The cabin is surrounded by hemlocks and in the summer the hummingbirds and blueberries are plentiful. It is centrally located with several restaurants and the local grocery within walking distance. Whittier, Seward and Hope are easy day trips by car should guests want to explore places other than Girdwood.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
St. Moritz sits at the base of Max's Mountain and ends shortly after our chalet. The neighbors are genuine and the blueberries sweet. When the sun shines, it warms the gravel roads and brings everyone out to visit and share stories. For the adventurous spirit, the back door leads to excellent powder skiing in winter and quiet hikes with bears, forest flowers and birds in summer. This is a quiet, serene place.
