Girdwood house description

Situated on a quiet street, conveniently located near the ski slopes and hiking trails, the Stowe Chalet can provide each visitor a place to wind down after a long Alaskan day of adventure and experience. The Stowe is a spacious, open environment with large windows facing the Alyeska Ski Resort and adjoining Max’s Mountain, and is nestled among the quieter neighborhoods within the small town of Girdwood. Its two floors provide ample space for spreading out and relaxing for the entire family, with plenty of privacy for the intimate travelers. When visiting Alaska, you needn’t leave the comforts of home behind, the Stowe embraces all the aspects that make a house into a home. Cleanliness, spaciousness and the plush softness of the beds will keep your inner fire burning while you explore and engage in the wilderness of Alaska.

Girdwood is located 36 miles south of Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city. Within its glacially-carved walls you will find opportunities to view wildlife, hike alpine meadows, dine on local delights, ski deep powder, pan yourself a golden fortune and so much more. With the Kenai Peninsula and Turnagain Pass a short 20-mile drive along one of America’s Scenic Byways (Seward Highway), you will have the chance to view Bald Eagles, endangered Beluga Whales, random Harbor Seals, larger-than-expected Moose and the occasional Black and Brown Bear. Locally, there is access to Sockeye (Red), Coho (Silver), or Chinook (King) Salmon fisheries - and the world-famous Kenai River is a beautiful 1.5 hour drive from the doorstep. Guided fishing, hiking and all-around adventure tours can be placed with local Girdwood tour guides. In addition, the Crow Creek Mine area can provide hours of investigative gold panning options, all while learning about the history of Girdwood and how it came to exist. Take a hike on the subtemperate rainforest Iditarod National Historic Trail, or forage for blueberries, fungi or other wild edibles right out the front door. Girdwood places you in the middle of Alaska’s action, and the Stowe provides you the luxury of comfort in the heart of the wild.

The Stowe’s caretaker, son of the owner, has lived and played in Girdwood for the past 14 years. An avid outdoorsmen and full-time Chugach National Forest Service employee, he is happy to share his knowledge or point you in the right direction to make your Alaska vacation a true success.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: Donna Garland lives and plays in Sheridan, Wyoming, near her two grandchildren and daughter's family. When the need to fill the freezer with wild salmon or halibut comes along, she comes up north to visit her son, a resident of Girdwood for 14 years. Together, they have skied, hiked, fished and seen just about everything SouthCentral Alaska has to offer.

                      Why the Owner Chose Girdwood:
                      Ms. Garland bought the home as an investment opportunity and as her own personal space to escape to when Wyoming's summers got to blazing.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Ms Garland enjoys floating down the river with her friends, seeing the bright Alaskan summer sun and dining at Girdwood's many diverse restaurants while she is visiting.
