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

What makes this house unique

Wedding Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The house is spacious, clean, and accommodating. The property management team was cordial and responsive. Be mindful that homes in this area are in close proximity of each other and it is not uncommon for neighbors and pets to walk through the yard. We didn't have any issues but were surprised a few times. Overall, the area was safe and the neighbors were friendly. We really enjoyed hanging-out on the main floor, playing pool, watching football, and cooking meals. We'd stay here again.

Modern, spacious, comfortable, clean

  • 5 of 5

This was the ideal house for a family getaway. Our party consisted of people ages 1 through 71 and the house worked for everyone. All the bedrooms, plus a non-private loft bed, are upstairs, but the walls were thick enough that snoring and fussing kids didn't bother anyone. The kitchen was great for a large group, too, with plenty of counter space and large, high-end appliances. We sadly didn't have time to use the hot tub, but all guests are required to do some minor upkeep (add chemicals daily and keep the water levels up) so we did get to check it out and it looked very inviting. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. My younger cousin and daughter both enjoyed playing with the off-leash, but very friendly, dog next door.

If we ever have a large group in town again, I would not hesitate to book this property. We used the house as a place to sleep and have breakfast and dinner, but were off exploring each day. A few in our group said they wished we had had more time to just enjoy spending time in the house.

STUNNING HOME WITH EXCEPTIONAL ACCOMMODATIONS and LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We were in Alaska for our daughter's wedding and had several family members coming from various locations; and wanted a single home to share for 2 days so we could all be together. This home FAR EXCEEDED our expectations with it's CLEANLINESS, COMFORT, AMENITIES, and LOCATION. The common space is perfect for family gatherings; and the bedrooms are comfortable and make you feel like you're in your own home! We were only there 2 days so we didn't use the Hot Tub; but it was clean and inviting; and we did take advantage of nearby hiking trails, restaurants and breathtaking views right out the front door. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and are already thinking how fun it would be in the winter during skiing season. Julie, the host, was kind, thorough, and very accomodating. The entire experience was exceptional; and I highly recommend this home for anyone looking for the perfect Family get-away.
