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.

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.
