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 Julie Jonas

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!

Julie Jonas purchased this house in 2015

Why Julie Jonas chose Alaska

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!

Spacious place – gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at this luxurious property celebrating college graduation. This house is located in a newer upscale neighborhood that is close to major Girdwood attractions. Although there were other properties of similar size and caliber available for rent in this neighborhood, this was the only one that offered straight-forward pricing for up to 10 people (others were based on 4 people with additional charges for each extra person). A spacious downstairs is perfect for hosting gatherings or simply relaxing while enjoying the views, while upstairs bedrooms and loft offer comfortable and quite retreat. Views of Mount Alyeska are prime and unobstructed from the living room windows. The design of hot tub area is perfect: it is fenced for privacy and has a roof that provides protection from rain and snow, but still has a gorgeous view of the mountain. Make sure to visit Virgin Falls – the trail access is only a few minutes away by car.

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the weekend to have a professional educator's retreat. It accommodated us perfectly. Julie, the property manager was in great contact and welcoming when she met to let us in. We would love to rent this place yearly for our retreat!

Warm, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend here with our family. The in-floor heating made the downstairs tile floors warm. The kitchen was very nice as well as the rest of the house. Also the weather and skiing in Girdwood were great!

Beautiful house in a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderfully maintained and furnished. There was nothing else we could have wanted with our stay. It was a combo work trip and pleasure! We could not have asked for more!

Great work trip weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the home for a work planning conference/Christmas party and it was a perfect fit. There was a great living room that accommodated everyone and a kitchen big enough we could all be in cooking. The home had a GREAT view of the mountain, especially at night when it was lit up. We were in very close proximity to everything restaurants, coffee shop, the hotel etc. The property manager was very accommodating with the arrival time. Plus there was two cute black labs next door that were always wondering around that were very friendly. Overall, great experience, 10 out of 10 would recommend.
