Bedrooms 1
Space 600 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath condo with easy slope access

Location, location, location! This summer retreat and winter ski condo provides easy access to all Girdwood has to offer. It's one of the best locations for ski access in Girdwood. Chair 3 is just above us - walk around the building to get to the lift. Take Chair 3 up and ski down to either the tram or Chair 4 to reach the rest of the mountain. Also just steps from The Sitzmark, Jack Sprat, the Bake Shop & La Bodega.

Newly remodeled one bedroom and one bath provide ample room for a family with a couple of small kids on the sofa sleeper. Indoor ski & boot storage, room for bikes on the deck. All dishes, kitchen equipment, linens and towels provided. We think the transformation is fantastic, so I left the before pics up too. We still have some loose ends and a few decor changes, but we'll continue updating as we can!

The $300 damage deposit will be refunded as soon as we have verified the parking pass has been returned and there is no damage. It usually posts back to guests credit card within 5-7 business days.

About Michelle

Danny spent a few bachelor years living here full time. Michelle tried to live in Girdwood, but couldn't handle the daily commute to Anchorage. It's been a ski locker/weekend get away since we bought a house in Anchorage in 2005. We still get out to Girdwood every chance we get, and if you aren't using the condo, chances are we will be. Check out Michelle's glass art & jewelry in the Girdwood Center for Visual Arts gallery next to The Bake Shop while you're out too!

Michelle purchased this condo in 2001

Why Michelle chose Alaska

Girdwood is a laid back little ski town all year long. It's just far enough from Anchorage to get away from the hustle and bustle and has easy access to winter and summer activities. Downhill skiing at Alyeska is the biggest draw, but there are wonderful Nordic ski trails and lots of hiking & mountain biking opportunities too. Girdwood definitely has character. Walk to The Bake Shop, GCVA gallery, La Bodega for wine or to fill your growler, or Jack Sprat. Walk, bike or grab the shuttle to the hotel or downtown. Winter Creek Trail is a local favorite for waterfalls and a hand tram across the creek.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location. It's one of the best locations for ski access in Girdwood. Chair 3 is just above us & perfect access for families with kiddos (or beginners like Michelle). Take Chair 3 up and ski down to either the tram or Chair 4 to reach the rest of the mountain.

Awesome condo in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything! A home away from home, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Communication with the owner was fantastic and all instructions very clear. They have thought of everything! And the photos don't do the condo's so big! The location is fabulous. We would love to come back and stay again.

Great location and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed 2 spring days in Girdwood and found this condo just perfect for our needs. Close to everything we needed to do ... skiing and more skiing. The condo is really well laid out and the kitchen remodel is fantastic - everything we needed there too! Finally we loved the tasteful ski decor and support from Michelle was great. Looking forward to staying again next season!

Great Location for skiing and eating

  • 4 of 5

Property was very clean, well equipped and there is no better location for skiing and eating. The slopes, The Bake Shop (ate the pancakes 3 times.) and Jack Sprats are within 500 ft. We had a little trouble finding the place in middle of night since there is no address on building. Read Michelle's instructions in detail and it is all there. Mapquest correctly identifies the location. Would stay here again.

If you fly Alaska air, 1st day of skiing is free if you ski day 1. Try the shushi bar at Alyeska hotel, it is excellent . Shop in Anchorage, grocery here is small. 3 days of skiing here is more than enough.
