Chalet, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

In this peaceful neighborhood, you will find the perfect base camp for your Alaskan adventure. The Hinterland Chalet is designed to provide you with a cozy stay in Girdwood with full kitchen and sleeping amenities. This timber frame chalet boasts beautiful redwood siding. Built by climbers in 1983, the recycled redwood came from Anchorage's original REI store.

On the main floor, the kitchen and living area are surrounded by windows. The kitchen and bath have just been remodeled with new floors and counter tops. The floors are radiant heated for toasty toes no matter what the temperature outside. The bedroom on the main floor has a full sized bed and closet. The futon in the living room also folds out to a full sized bed. The main loft hosts a queen sized log frame bed where the moon shines bright on clear nights. This is the master bedroom of the house with a full closet. Up the ladder you can escape to the tree room for reading, relaxing, or gazing out through the forest. Complimentary coffee, tea, hot cocoa, and spiced cider are provided for your enjoyment.

The large deck with seating in front is perfect for relaxing after a hike, or, if you love a bonfire, warm up by the fire bowl. This 1,000 square foot chalet is well suited for families and friends in groups up to six people.

About Kathy Fish

We have lived in Alaska for 30 years and love this beautiful state. We feel fortunate to be raising our family here and look forward to the time we get to spend in Girdwood skiing, snowboarding, hiking and just enjoying the laid back, friendly atmosphere.

Kathy Fish purchased this Chalet in 2010

Why Kathy Fish chose Municipality of Anchorage

We chose this particular property due to its location. Located on a third of an acre on a quiet, dead end road, it is very peaceful. The cabin is surrounded by hemlocks and in the summer the hummingbirds and blueberries are plentiful. It is centrally located with several restaurants and the local grocery within walking distance. Whittier, Seward and Hope are easy day trips by car should guests want to explore places other than Girdwood.

What makes this Chalet unique

St. Moritz sits at the base of Max's Mountain and ends shortly after our chalet. The neighbors are genuine and the blueberries sweet. When the sun shines, it warms the gravel roads and brings everyone out to visit and share stories. For the adventurous spirit, the back door leads to excellent powder skiing in winter and quiet hikes with bears, forest flowers and birds in summer. This is a quiet, serene place.

Had everything needed for a most enjoyable stay. Beautiful chalet, beautiful views, quiet and peaceful. We so enjoyed our stay. We traveled quite a bit while staying here enjoying all the local things to see and do. It was quite nice to return every night and know that we could fix us a bite to eat and relax before we enjoyed a good's night sleep. Thank the Fish family for a very nice visit.

We are very happy you enjoyed your stay at our cabin and were able to visit the sites near and around Girdwood. I would like to thank you and your wife for leaving our place in such pristine condition. I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate the fact that you treated our home as if it were your own. You are welcome back any time. Thanks again. Kathy

                                                                  The setting, nestled in the rainforest, was beautiful, as well as quiet and peaceful. Thank you Kathy for sharing your little piece of paradise with us!

                                                                  What a wonderful cabin in the woods. Our family found it well stocked and just what we needed for our first visit to Alaska. Girdwood is a great central location for day trips to Seward, Whittier, and Anchorage. There were plenty of trails nearby and quality restaurants! We loved our quiet down time hanging around the cabin. The owners have thought of every little thing you could need. Thank you Fish Family! We hope to return soon.

                                                                  Wonderful property and owner!

                                                                  We rented this perfect chalet or a family vacation to celebrate my grandfather's 88th birthday and our 8th wedding anniversary. The chalet and setting was lovely and exceeded our expectations! But what makes this place truly lovely is Kathy as she was helpful, responsive, and a joy to work with especially when my family came down with the flu.

I'm very happy your visit to Alaska went so well (except for the last few days, what a bummer to get sick on vacation). You and your family lucked into some wonderful weather, what a fabulous summer we had this year. Thank you again for your kind comments, I sincerely appreciate them. Kathy

There was even a black bear that came and visited us outside the first night, very cool! Kathy was very helpful and attentive though the process and helpful with things to do in the area! Very happy with this cabin!

                                                                  Owner's Response:
