Girdwood cabin description

Our cheerful and cozy 650 square foot log cabin is nestled amongst a hemlock forest on a corner lot. We are located in a quiet neighborhood at the base of Max's Mountain, one mountain over from Alyeska. It is a short drive or a 20-30 minute walk through the neighborhood to the base of Alyeska or the town center. There are many trail hikes of varying levels in Girdwood. Virgin Creek Falls is a nearby hike from the cabin.

We offer a small bedroom (queen size bed) with shelving and closet space, bathroom (sink, tub, and shower), and sleeper sofa (full size mattress) downstairs and a smaller bedroom (full size bed) with shelving space upstairs as well. There is a Rinnai automatic gas heater in the living room.

Kitchen includes: stove/oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, toaster, coffeemaker, as well as dishes, utensils, glasses, pots and pans.

We provide towels and linens, as well as soaps, tea, hot chocolate, and coffee.

We spend our winters in Girdwood, and we look forward to sharing our home with you and your family during the summer months! Dogs upon approval.
