About the property

Spacious getaway for family and friends in the heart of Girdwood

Experience a slice of Alaska at the Mountain View Guest House! Relax in the 6 person outdoor hot tub after a day of skiing, or play billiards after dinner in this lovely 4 bedroom, 3 full bath home located in beautiful Girdwood, Alaska. This custom home has all the amenities necessary for a comfortable visit, suitable for up to 10 guests. (Two of the bedrooms have a queen AND a twin, in order to suit your group’s desired bedding configuration. There is an extra charge of $25 per person per night for each extra person above the ten person occupancy for this house. Contact us for rates for groups of up to twelve). If you have a special event in mind, we may be able to accommodate you; special fees and/or deposits may apply.

Enjoy the great room with the granite stone floor, radiant floor heating, and 20 foot vaulted ceiling with 12 foot windows facing Mt. Alyeska. The open floor plan of the living room and kitchen invites guests to linger around the gas fireplace, enjoy a meal around the large dining room table, or watch a DVD on the large, flat screen TV. You can even catch up on your email with high speed WiFi. The master bedroom has a fireplace, private bathroom with walk in shower and Jacuzzi tub. The four bedrooms are located upstairs, along with an open loft that has a futon sofa/bed. There is another full bathroom and laundry room with washer, dryer and folding area upstairs.

From this home that is centrally located with a view of Mt. Alyeska, you can venture out to ski (downhill and cross-country or helicopter skiing), hike, pick blueberries, shop, bike, fish, dine at fine restaurants, romp in the community built playground, go flightseeing, and more.

For those frosty mornings, you can park your car, bikes or skis in the heated 2 car garage. Children are welcome, making this home a welcoming spot for family and friends. Under new ownership but with the same manager, the Mountain View Guest House continues to be a wonderful vacation get away.

About Shawn and Maggie Gannon

We have lived in Alaska for the past 23 years and fell in love with Girdwood the first time we visited this beautiful, scenic town many years ago. We lived in Germany for 3 years and Girdwood brings back wonderful memories of southern Germany. Spending time in Girdwood is a great way to renew our love of the mountains, and we thoroughly enjoy hiking and fishing in the summer, and skiing in the winter. We love our home in Girdwood so much and hope you will enjoy it too!

Shawn and Maggie Gannon purchased this house in 2015

Why Shawn and Maggie Gannon chose Girdwood

We instantly fell in love with this scenic town of 2,000 people on the edge of the Chugach Mountains with its spectacular outdoor activity options including hiking, skiing, fishing, and more.

What makes this house unique

Whether you like to hike in the summer or ski in the winter, or simply relax in a small mountain town, our home in Girdwood will surely enhance your visit!

Delightful stay; spacious & cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This is a must-stay vacation property! Beautiful interior and spacious layout. All appliances, furniture, and décor are made of superior quality materials and in excellent condition. All of the beds are very comfy and warm. Loved entertaining guests with the billiard table and amazing hot tub. The kitchen is off the charts! It's spacious and equipped with all appliances and utensils needed for many people to help cook a group meal. One of the highlights of our stay was for everyone to cook together and mingle & munch in the kitchen. For skiing/boarding, you will need to drive to the resort from this house, but it's only a 3-min drive with plenty of free parking. We will stay here again and recommend to others!

Great house!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group take so a ski trip out west every year and this was one of the nicest houses we’ve ever rented. Very spacious, clean, well-appointed house with a spectacular view of the mountain, and close to everything. Hot tub and pool table were great for apres ski! Property manager was very attentive and friendly. I would definitely come back.

Fabulous for a Family of 10

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and very comfortable. The kids were originally disappointed that we would not be staying at the hotel this year and would not be able to swim in the pool. The hot tub made up for it. I liked have the space to relax after a day on the slopes and a big kitchen to cook breakfast and dinner for my crew. The garage was an unexpected bonus for loading and unloading all the ski gear. No complaints, the kids are already asking if we can go back next year.

Beautiful home with all the accommodations.

  • 4 of 5

For our ladies' weekend get-away, we enjoyed all the accommodations this house had to offer. The property manager and the owners are easy to work with. The house is also located in an area with lots of activities but it's hard to want to leave the comforts of this home.

Beautiful home near awesome skiing

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the pleasure of staying in this home for a Christmas family gathering. We wanted for nothing because this home was so well equipped and clean. We enjoyed the view of the mountain at night. Hot tubbing was a welcome treat after a long day of skiing and snowboarding. The pool table provided hours of entertainment as well. Highly recommend and hope to visit again in the future. Thank you!
