- Welcome to Girdwood and our peaceful apartment. the1 bedroom apartment is located on the first floor of our home. We are on the side of Max's mountain and right at the forest edge. It is very quiet up here and chances of seeing wild life right here are very strong! We often see bear and moose as well as eagles, hummingbirds, hawks and we hear an owl many nights. If your lucky you might catch a glimpse of this mystical creature. We are 40 mins south of Anchorage and only 5 mins from Alyeska ski resort. Crow Creek historical mine is only 10 minutes away. This a great spot to stay while you discover this part of Alaska! You can hike up virgin falls from your front door or choose from many other scenic hikes with in walking distance. ...moreless

My husband and I stayed here while visiting some friends in May. The owners are very friendly, the place was very clean and the blackout shades in the bedroom were an amazing treat. I would stay here again without a doubt.

Owner response: wow Thank You Jessica! I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay! Jody and Shane
We came to Girdwood to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. At the Forest Edge was everything the owners described. The apartment had a private entrance, and the location was quiet and "at the forest edge." The bedroom and bathroom had a spa feel to it. We would highly recommend this VRBO to anyone. We never completed the virgin creek hike as too many blueberries got in the way.

While planning a trip to Alaska for my son's wedding, I came across At the Forest Edge. The rental rates were affordable so I made the reservation. The owners were very helpful and friendly making the wedding even more special. We arrived to the smell of homemade banana nut bread; there's nothing like feeling at home as soon as you arrive. We were made to feel like family immediately. The apartment was exquisite and cozy at the same time. It was stocked with kitchenware, linens, and toiletries. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a real Alaskan experience.
