About Makiko Boyd

I grew up in Niigata, Japan. It is the place in Japan where skiing was introduced in 1911. My father was the ski instructor, and I started skiing when I was only 3 years old. The Hotel Alyeska was built and operated by Japanese company, I knew the name "ALYESKA", but never thought I would live in Alaska until I met my husband John. He grew up in Dublin, Ireland, and he never skied before, but he loved beautiful snowy Girdwood and found a house potential as a vacation rental.

Makiko Boyd purchased this house in 1997

Why Makiko Boyd chose Girdwood

My dream since high school was to own a B&B one day. We saw the open house sign 1997 on our drive to the hotel, and just took a look. The property had such special atmosphere with the sound of the creek so relaxing and calming! Build as a duplex, the two units are very private. They are connected by a breezeway and Hot tub area. We thought this property was the perfect place for our vacation home and for maybe running the B&B one day when we have more time.

What makes this house unique

The lovely sound of the creek is so relaxing- it creates a peaceful setting for your getaway.

The ski slope, restaurant and hotel are all walking distance.

There is also a soccer field across the street, that turns into a cross-country trail in the winter time. Great location!! Girdwood is the only resort for world class skiing in Alaska, and Glacier Creek Lodge is the perfect getaway!!

Beautiful place - just a little short on bathrooms

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 of us stayed at the combined properties and we found it to be excellent. Clean, spacious, well stocked, and amazing location. The only issue I would have with this great property is that there are only two showers and 3 toilets between the two places so if you have a lot of people I could see this getting tight but manageable. Otherwise we were blown away by this amazing property!

Glacier Creek House

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house, it was great location for our stay. Everyone really loved the creek. We only wished the weather had been a little nicer. The beds we're great, only issue was the stairs, a couple of us had bad knees, but we were able to manage quite well. Definitely would stay there again. Thanks for the wine. Griffin Family

Beautiful, comfortable house and great location!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and relaxing. The home is exceptionally maintained and the amenities definitely 5 Stars! I highly recommend staying here as I felt relaxed and recharged! We also enjoyed the seasonal Japanese Dinner at Glacier Creek Lodge! An exquisite work of cuisine art! And the location is gorgeous! We will visit this location again and again!

Had a wonderful wedding/new years weekend here

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented both units for new years weekend. When we arrived the units were both exceptionally clean and organized. There were plenty of blankets towels and beds for our stay. And there were even some very useful spices, teas, and kitchenware.

Being able to walk up to the day lodge in less than 10 minutes was a huge help on such an incredibly busy weekend.
