Amazing Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

When you walk into this home, you will be immersed in the amazing feel of the mountains framed by the two story windows in the main room. With the wood-burning stove crackling at night, you feel that you are alone in the world. Very peaceful and relaxing.

The house is also very close to many restaurants and a 2 minute drive to everything else in Girdwood. Valerie was very nice, easy to work with and made the home more than ready for our arrival. If you are thinking of visiting Girdwood but you want to comfort of hime then you really should consider this amazing mountain retreat!

Great location and layout

  • 4 of 5

Owner was very good to work with. Beds were comfy. Nicely equipped kitchen. Basement (with pool table) really too cold to enjoy. Great location within walking distance of the ski resort and shops.

Perfect family home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a wedding we attended. The men came here to get ready for the wedding and it was perfect. One more bedroom would have been nice but we ended up getting a motorhome and had plenty of room in the driveway to park and we slept in it while we let the rest have the bedrooms. We had 5 little kids that LOVED the toy closet! We enjoyed watching the momma and 3 baby black bears that came around everyday. The first time was quite a shock, and they didn't stick around, but it was fun seeing them. The home could use a few more towels and towel hooks/bars in the master bath would be good. Also you may want to look at the washer, it seemed to take a real long time to wash a load of clothes. Other than that the home was very well stocked and comfortable for our purpose. The pool table was also a hit.

Home away from home...location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

This house is a home. It's not fancy, but was very clean and comfortable and a great central place to call home for two weeks! We were not only in the center of all that was happening in Girdwood, but day trips every other day to nearby attractions were perfect! Big beautiful glass windows and comfy beds! We rafted to the toe of Spencer Glacier and touched it! Rode the train! Limited out on halibut from Whittier to PWSound! Hiked the North Face of Alyeska! Panned for Gold and Conservancy! Anchorage museums and rode ATVs! You name it, I'm sure we did it! Kitchen was well stocked and clean and we made almost every meal here or packed a lunch to go...saving money to spend on our awesome adventures! Restaurants here are good but were VERY crowded! So near Alyeska resort to take in it's offerings and activities too! Wildlife galore...bear, bald eagles,orca whales, sea lions, seals, moose...I think we saw them all in the wild and at conservancy! Highly recommend this property for attentive local owner, cleanliness, roominess, and comfort!
