Vrbo Bear Stay review
I have nothing but good to say about our stay in this home. The location was good for the many activities our group of 13 had planned, the home is exceptionally well stocked and comfortable for a large family group such as ours, and the owners always answered questions and responded quickly to any requests. The location felt private even though there was a house next door and was very quiet.
We would definitely choose this house if returning to this area of Alaska in the future!
Bucket List Vacation
Home was roomy, comfortable, clean, fully stocked and in a good location.
Enjoyed time with our sons and their families.
Several nice restaurants, good drive to Anchorage, Whittier and Seward.
Wonderful place for a family vacation.
Audrey and Win were great.
What a place!
After a 24+ hour journey from Scotland, we arrived at the Five Star Executive Lodge and were immediately blown away. There were 7 adults and 1 child in our group and we stayed for 2 weeks, so it was great to have so much space. The grand open plan living area was fabulous and the perfect place to relax after a day on the slopes, whether sitting by the fire, playing pool, watching a film or having dinner. There was even a fold out table and chairs for dining which we weren't expecting. The house was very well stocked and maintained, and the owners were very thoughtful and helpful throughout our stay. The location was ideal too, being literally a few minutes drive or a five minute walk from the slopes. Highly recommended. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Win and Audrey!
Lovely home. Great location.
Our family has stayed in Girdwood many times. Usually we stay in the hotel or in a condo. This time I decided on staying in this house. It worked out great. The space is excellent for a family and friends. It is close enough to the ski area and to restaurants and grocery store that the kids can walk. They also walked to the shuttle a couple of times. For once we weren’t all tripping over each other in tight quarters. The large kitchen is great, as is having a clothes dryer since it was a rainy week at the ski area. My wife would have liked to have an outdoor hot tub. We do plan to stay here again.
A beautiful home! Very thoughtful owners!! We thoroughly enjoyed our time here!
Just a 2 blocks from Alaska's premier Ski Resort Mountain, Alyeska Resort.

About Audrey or Win Faulkner
My wife and I were born in Anchorage and have lived and skied in the mountains around Girdwood and on Mt. Alyeska since our youth. After spending many years outside Alaska getting educated, we returned to our home state, fell in love and have been raising our family here ever since. I am a general aviation pilot and enjoy flying around Alaska and seeing the state. I run a real estate business and have rental properties in Girdwood and Anchorage.
Audrey or Win Faulkner purchased this House in 1996
Why Audrey or Win Faulkner chose Alyeska
Mount Alyeska and the town of Girdwood is Anchorage's local ski resort, nestled in the heart of the Chugach Mountains just a short drive from Anchorage. Girdwood is a charming town that is filled with huge spruce trees, surrounded by mountains and glaciers and best of all, it snows a ton in the winter making the skiing some of the best around.
What makes this House unique
Our home is just a few hundred yards from the base of Mt. Alyeska. Located on a well kept bike path that leads to the mountain, walking or biking from our home and accessing the rest of the Girdwood Valley is easy. Our luxurious home is very open and spacious, has a wall of windows facing the mountain, and a large open circular fireplace that will make you feel like you are in your own ski lodge.
