Girdwood house description

Experience a slice of Alaska at the Mountain View Guest House! Relax in the 6 person outdoor hot tub after a day of skiing, or play billiards after dinner in this lovely 4 bedroom, 3 full bath home located in beautiful Girdwood, Alaska. This custom home has all the amenities necessary for a comfortable visit, suitable for up to 10 guests. (We have added one twin bed to two of the bedrooms, in order to suit your group’s desired bedding configuration. There is an extra charge of $25 per person per night for each extra person above the ten person occupancy for this house). Contact us for rates for groups of twelve. Contact us if you have a special event in mind; special fees and/or deposits may apply.
Enjoy the great room with granite stone floor, radiant floor heating, and 20 foot vaulted ceiling with 12 foot windows facing Mt. Alyeska. The open floor plan of the living room and kitchen invites guests to linger around the gas fireplace, enjoy a meal around the large dining room table, or watch the flat screen, cable TV with high definition/Tivo. A DVD player is available. You can even catch up on your email with the high speed WiFi. The master bedroom has a fireplace, private bathroom with walk in shower and Jacuzzi tub. The four bedrooms are located upstairs, along with an open loft that has a futon sofa/bed, another full bath and laundry room with washer, dryer and folding area.
From this home that is centrally located with a view of Mt. Alyeska, you can venture out to ski (downhill and cross-country or helicopter skiing), hike, pick blueberries, shop, bike, fish, dine at fine restaurants, romp in the community built playground, go paragliding, or flightseeing, and more.
For those frosty mornings, you can park your car, bikes or skis in the heated 2 car garage. Children are welcome, making this the ideal spot for a family and friends vacation get away.

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About: We bought our Girdwood home in 2007, moving back to the United States after 11 years overseas (including 6 years in Switzerland). Living in Girdwood was a great way to renew our love of the mountains, and we thoroughly enjoy hiking and fishing in the summer, and skiing in the winter. Our jobs took us to Seattle recently, but because we love this house so much, we’re keeping the house, and hope you will enjoy it too!

              Why Girdwood:
              We had been living overseas for more than a decade and relocated to Alaska for my husband's job. We instantly fell in love with this scenic town of 2,000 people on the edge of the Chugach Mountains with its spectacular outdoor activity options including hiking, skiing, fishing, and more.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Great view of the mountain from the living room. Double car attached garage, pool table, hot tub.
