About Jenny Hand

After renting this property for 5 winters, two Alaskan ski families purchased this home for a winter getaway. We have made many improvements to this cabin to make it our own and provide luxury accommodations for our summer guests.

Jenny Hand purchased this cabin in 2012

Great, relaxing experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! The house was well-stocked with everything we could have needed. Everyone agreed their beds were very comfortable, and there were plenty of towels for bathing as well as after the hot tub. The kitchen had every utensil or pot and pan we could have ever needed. We enjoyed walking to the Sitzmark and Jack Sprat for dinner; the house is maybe 5 minutes walking distance from either restaurant. The hot tub was clean and wonderful to relax in after long days of hiking. Jenny was extremely responsive and attentive to our needs. We would definitely stay again and recommend it for others!

Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a family vacation to Alaska and this cabin worked perfectly. The cabin was as good as advertised and views were great. The owners were fantastic to work with - very attentive and quick to follow up to ensure our needs were met - both before and during our trip. Will plan on staying there again on our next visit!

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cabin in June of 2016 and had a wonderful time. The place is as beautiful as it's pictures. The living area and the loft are just lovely and so is the view. The place looks like it was just built. The bathrooms are very nice, the kitchen has all the bells and whistles you would like and is VERY well stocked with cooking equipment. Girdwood is such a lovely little town with good restaurants and good people. There is so much to do there and you are centrally located between Seward and Anchorage. The owners were so sweet and easy to work with. They answered all the questions we had promptly, both before we arrived and while we were staying there (and we had a lot). I whole heatedly recommend the Alpine Haus to anyone visiting the area!!

Amazing Alaskan Adventure

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for our 2nd trip to Alaska making it easy to travel North or South by car or train. We came with another couple and we all loved the cabin. The accomodations were wonderful, comfortable beds, nice furniture, a beautiful kitchen and everything we needed to make us feel at home and the view was amazing! Your cabin was perfect and we can't wait to come back! Thanks Tammi!!!

Perfection in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our friends came to Alaska for the first time this summer and I cannot say enough about renting this property. We use Homeaway and VRBO alot for vacation stays and this property was one of the best. Tammi was wonderful to work with and even left us a bottle of champagne for our 10th wedding anniversary celebration. The Alpine Haus is everything that it was advertised to be. There is plenty of room for everyone and it is decorated beautifully. We enjoyed the location and the beautiful views of Mt. Alyeska everyday from the deck. We enjoyed the hot tub on the deck as well. This property made it very easy to base out of for various day trips to Anchorage, Whittier, Seward etc. I would highly recommend this property and we will definitely come to visit again in the future with our children next time. Thank you Tammi for sharing your lovely home, it was a fantastic experience.

Excellent vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The Alpine Haus was perfect for our group, three adults and two children. We loved the three different levels for downtime. The couches and beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was beautiful and functional. Everything about the house was perfect and Tammi was very helpful and pleasant to communicate with. Thanks for helping to make our vacation to Alaska so perfect!
