Property description

Girdwood is the perfect location for your summer and winter adventure base. Its close proximity to Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula make it an ideal place for a unique and memorable experience.

Relax with all the comforts of home in our beautiful and cozy log cabin. The Crystal Mountain Cabin comfortably accommodates 6 guests (or up to eight with the twin beds, for a small additional fee). This lovely cabin is a great place to get away for couples, families and friends. The large open floor plan has a great room feel downstairs with one bedroom and full bathroom. The 3/4 loft has 2 queen sized beds and is separated by a large ceiling height partition. There is a small bathroom in the loft.

The living room is a great place to spend time, with the gas fireplace that is very inviting. Our modern kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need to cook at home. The large bathroom downstairs has its own washer and dryer.

Girdwood is home to world class downhill and cross country skiing! It is only a short, two minute walk to the lifts of Mt. Alyeska and a quicker ski home to your cabin. Moose Meadows is directly down the street and it is your access point to the extensive nordic ski trails.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: This cabin is owned by life long Alaskans. Doug grew up in Seward, and Cindy in Anchorage. We love living in Alaska and would be happy to assist you with ideas of places to visit, go fishing and hiking during the summer.

Why the Owner Chose Girdwood, Anchorage, AK, USA:
As avid downhill and cross country skiers, we were fortunate to be able to use this wonderful cabin during the winters for many years as it belonged to family friends. We were overjoyed when they offered us the opportunity to buy it from them. It is the perfect spot to ski down for a quick lunch, break or dinner if you are night skiing. It is safe and quiet and a great place for kids. We spent our summer totally remodeling almost every aspect of the cabin; upgrading plumbing, electrical, appliances, and decks. It was a true family effort and our 17 year old daughter worked right along with us and was a blessing as well as a huge help!!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This location and scenery are truly spectacular. It is on a quiet dead end street. There is no need to drive anywhere. It is walking distance to nearby restaurants, bars, and stores. Nearby trails offer great hiking and biking and the shuttle is nearby.
