Stunning house and property...

  • 5 of 5

Three generations gathered for 6 days of Alyeska skiing. Multiple living areas, handsomely furnished, a high end kitchen and superb bathrooms, provided total comfort. Though Girdwood has lots of restaurants, we stayed in. Views within and without the home are more expansive, and beautiful, than in the pictures. The 'mudroom' off the garage is a showstopper! For those guests with young children the staircase is the main entertainment! You always know where they are. Sarah, the manager, is local and professional. We will come back to this luxury property.

Wonderful Family Christmas Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed over Christmas holiday and it was the perfect setting for our family. We really enjoyed the low key and private setting the house gave our family. The best part were all the separate rooms it provided for different activities. Two Living areas and a loft setting which was beautiful to sit at in the morning or evening. Provided plenty of room. Kitchen provided everything we needed. My brother did point out if our family grew in couples just the two bedroom might be challenging if there were more couples wanting privacy but for the beautiful house and setting it provided there's a trade off and most folks are flexible in that regard. Thank You Sarah for sharing your wonderful home; we had a lovely time.....we are already talking about booking for next Dec :-)

We love this home and the beautiful setting. Amenities and architecture make it a special escape.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this home. The open plan and the private setting makes you not even want to leave. You can see Turnagain Arm through the trees and hear nearby Virgin Falls just outside your door. The architecture of the home is one of a kind and very flexible for a family. Sara makes everything super easy. We will definitely stay here next time we visit Girdwood.

Beautiful Space

  • 5 of 5

We used the house as a strategic planning retreat for our company. We chose the it because it had lots of open space and plenty of room for big ideas. The house was very conductive to productivity. We bought a projector screen on a tripod and easily fit 7 of us and a projector at the table during the day. At night we enjoyed wine and conversation in the various nooks. The kitchen was very well equipped, something I was about. Sarah, who manages the house as available via text for any questions we had. The whole experience was just right. My only cautionary advice to future users would be that the driveway is steep, narrow and long with a tight turn or two. Not advisable for non 4WD cars unless you have great studded tires and even then. Thanks, Sarah!

Amazing property tucked away and surrounded by Sitka spruce and views in every direction.

  • 5 of 5

This property is special. You truly feel as though you are alone deep in the forest while being only a couple minutes from the resort and all the fun Girdwood has to offer. The architecture and design of this house is perfect. Just out your back door are the Virginia creek falls and there are views from every room. Sarah does an excellent job of accommodating guests through quick communication and flexible scheduling. We will definitely be back here.

Girdwood is a year-round ski resort community in Alaska. It lies in a valley in the Chugach Mountains near the end of the Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet, 36 miles (61 km) southeast of Anchorage proper.

It is surrounded by seven permanent glaciers. Summer activities include hiking, fishing , rafting and mountain biking but Girdwood is best known for winter skiing and snowboarding at Alyeska Resort on Mount Alyeska. Girdwood has the northernmost rain forest in the world. Many visiters choose to base their Alaskan vacation out of Girdwood because of it's small unique mountain side community.
