  • The Best of Girdwood

    "Nestled on a quiet street a few blocks from the Alyeska Resort, this home had 3 bedrooms and 2 baths that would be comfortable for 6, thought it was only 4 of us. We saw black bear several days from the cabin, and were able to access all of the area quickly from this location: Anchorage is about 45 minutes away, Whittier is 45 minutes the other way, and Seward is a short 2+ hour drive through some of the prettiest scenery imaginable. . Thea (the owner) was more than helpful and there were brochures and other highlights in the cabin. The morning view from the front room is incredible. A must do is the Alyeska Tram which is located not 10 minutes away. When it's clear on the mountain you can see for miles. The local restaurants were always full, but the Double Musky was a standout. Be sure and try that one. There's a "general store" in Girdwood, but the prices reflect the sole source; plan on stocking up at a WalMart in Anchorage. There were several ski lifts within minutes of the cabin, but we went in the summer and didn't use those facilities. Our trip was a bucket list item and will be an enjoyable memory for years to come, so you too need to stay at the Best of Girdwood."

  • home away from home is the perfect description

    "This experience was very relaxing for my family and I . We had everything we needed and it was spacious enough for a family like mine with 5 kids . My children enjoyed the fire pit around back where they could roast marshmallows . They loved the jacuzzi tub as well ! The home was a perfect home away from home . We loved that we weren't to far from town and not to far from fishing . We will definitely be staying here again !!"

  • Caving Adventure

    "Our trip to Prince of Wales was to see caves on the island. Beaver Falls Karst Trail is a wonderful trail for the non-cavers and the Capitan Cave is also an excellent adventure. Red Dawg provided us with a great location to see the caves and to be close to supplies. My husband was also successful at fishing between cave trips because of all the information in Red Dawg Retreat. We spent a week at Red Dawg Retreat and could not have asked for anything more. The house is perfect for 2 -6 and is completely furnished and comes with a well equipped kitchen. The washer. dryer was great for keeping rainforest damp clothes dry. We grilled every night and enjoyed quite evenings in our secluded retreat. Wayne and Sharon check in to make sure all is well and Sarah the property manager is there for any problem, like the one we had when a bear got into the trash bin. And when you are ready for a little information about the outside world, the DISH is nice to have. You can package your stay with the Red Dawg suv and a skiff. We highly recommend this centrally located house for fishermen and adventure seekers alike."

  • A perfect place to stay on Fairbanks!

    "We love this place so much that we decided to add our 1st review on TA. Everything was perfect. Beautiful, warm and cozy private cottage in the woods. We booked 6 nights stay in Chinook Cabin initially but we loved this place so much that we ended up extending another 2 nights here. A well maintained & nicely decorated cabin with a nice view of the frozen Chena River. Comfortable bed, fluffy pillows, cozy couch, endless tv channels, books, travel brochures and a fully equipped kitchen with drinking water, fresh coffee beans, teas and all kinds of sauces and spices you can think of. Heated floor kept us warm n toasty in the cabin at -30. Power and cables are also provided for winterized car right outside the cabin. There was even an outdoor sauna right beside our cabin. Steps away from the frozen Chena river, 10 minutes drive to North Pole, Santa Claus House, and 20 minutes drive to Fairbanks downtown, this place is best for Aurora viewing. Dark enough during the night, away from the city lights, yet not too far away. Be sure to pop your head out the balcony religiously to spot the Aurora even if you have the Aurora Apps on your Hp. You never know when it's gonna come out and surprise you! When the chance come, just grab your coat and boots and head out to the frozen river for the beautiful view. We felt so welcomed despite delaying our check in time twice and checked in really late at almost 9pm. A box of Christmas goodies, with tangerines, handwarmers, chocolates, hot coco mix and freshly baked blueberries walnut bread (it's out of this world!!!), together with a Christmas card, was already awaiting for our arrival when we checked in. Debi and Bruce are both so friendly and nice. Molly too, their son's dog who pop by once to greet us! Debi came by and checked on us to ensure our comfort throughout our stay and even brought cheesecake she made on Christmas eve. Bruce helped and gave us advices when we planned to set fireworks at the frozen Chena River on our last day in Fairbanks. We ended our stay with a blast at Chinook. Thank you Debi & Bruce for your great hospitality during our stay in Chinook! We hope to come back here again soon! Pardon our lengthy review! We just love this place so much! Happy 2016!"
