About Kevin & Patty Montague

We have lived in Girdwood for over 30 years - and Alaska for a lifetime. We have raised three children in this community and we are rooted here. Girdwood provides easy wilderness access for hikes in the summer and skiing in the winter. Our family members can provide personal local tours if desired.

Kevin & Patty Montague purchased this chalet in 1997

Why Kevin & Patty Montague chose Girdwood

Virgin Creek Lodge is a sanctuary for people wanting a break from everyday urban living. There is 'weather' here…it's dynamic and ever changing - never static. Girdwood is a leisure based community where people from all Alaskan walks of life live… in the classical sense - Life is simply good here.

What makes this chalet unique

Girdwood valley is North-America's most northern boreal rainforest. Natural rejuvenation of the the senses - wonder. Complementary nature walks upon request.

Great cabin with awesome scenery

  • 5 of 5

We had nice relaxing weekend in this cozy cabin with great views of the mountains. Patty was very nice and welcoming. Enjoyed gazing out into the wooded scenery while making breakfast and an awesome time unwinding in the hot tub while gazing up at the stars.

A quiet escape

  • 5 of 5

The place was amazing! We could woke-up in the morning to the sounds of the waterfall. It was a great a quiet place to get away for a mini-vacation. The owners were very sweet and made sure everything was ready for us. I would completely recommend as a way to re-charge!

Perfect getaway spot.

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculate, beautifully decorated and very relaxing. The location was secluded yet had easy access to shops and restaurants. The Virgin Creek trail to waterfalls and a mountain stream was so cool.

Just Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Patty, the owner, is just about the sweetest person you'll ever meet. The chalet is very comfortable, private and very clean. But it's the little things. The owners take the time to add little touches to try to enhance your stay. From fresh flowers on the deck, the little necessities in the fridge, frosted beer mugs in the freezer, to a very clean and ready to use hot tub...and I loved the jacuzzi bath! After reading the guest book, I realized that they try to tailor amenities to fit the needs of their guest and enhance your stay. (Champagne for a couple who were celebrating their wedding anniversary.) Would definitely rent again.

Virgin Creek Lodge is nestled on one and a half acres against Max's Mountain in a forested glacial valley, above Virgin Creek. The lodge is on a ridge line facing south/southwest with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and Turnagain Arm. Virgin Creek Falls hiking trail can be directly accessed from the property. The 'Falls' trail head provides a gateway to alpine hiking in the summer and back country skiing in the winter.

Virgin Creek Lodge is on the end of Timberline Dr. The gravel drive, on the left side of the cudesac, is steep and requires AWD or 4WD for the winter months. A second driveway, at street level, is provided.
