Summer is the time to visit. Every type of attraction in mountains, rivers and the ocean is nearby. On the water, raft, cruise, kayak, fish in rivers, fish in the ocean, whale watch, visit glaciers. See bands and experience local festivals at the Alyeska resort.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We are outdoor Alaskans. We ski Alyeska Resort and nordic trails in the winter and spend time on the ocean in Prince William Sound, mountain bike, hike, and camp in the summer. We want our guests to get out and experience the Alaska we know. We will help you with local knowledge and "must sees", and we work really hard to make your stay at our home the best experience possible.
Why the Owner Chose Girdwood, Anchorage, AK, USA:
Girdwood is great on its own, and it is a great jump off spot for Prince William Sound whale watching, Alaska Railroad day trips, day trips to Anchorage, Seward, or fishing on the Kenai Penninsula. Our cottage provides a great base for all travelers, active mountain runners or quiet walkers. Girdwood is a special place. There are no stop lights. The small town atmosphere of Girdwood is relaxed, friendly and simple.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage feels comfortable from the moment you enter. We loved it from the start, and we host friends with their kids many weekends in the winter. We are located in the heart of Girdwood's first neighborhood (after the earthquake in 1964), on a quiet, very walkable side street. No need to drive from our home if you want items from the store, a bite to eat, or want to have beers and listen to music at the Sitzmark. In summer it is likely you will see a bear or moose in town if you keep your eyes open.
