About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-9)

Comfortable family home along bike path at the base of Mt. Alyeska Ski Resort, in Girdwood, only 30 minutes south of Anchorage along majestic Turnagain Arm.

Girdwood offers a bounty of both winter and summer activities, from downhill and cross-country skiing in winter to hiking and biking in the summer.

Our home is designed for family relaxation. The newly-remodeled upstairs includes four bedrooms, TV room, and full bath. One of the larger bedrooms also provides entertainment with a foosball table. Downstairs includes a kitchen, dining room, living room, full bath, and washer/dryer. The front of the house includes a large covered deck that captures the warmth of the southern sun.

Local sightseeing includes riding the Mt. Alyeska tram to view all seven glaciers of the Girdwood Valley, and visiting nearby Portage Glacier and its Visitor's Center, Crow Creek Mine, Chugach National Forest, Prince William Sound, and the museums and shopping of Anchorage.

No smoking and No Pets. We do not allow parties at our house. Renter must provide a major credit card.

Great location; perfect for big family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Home was clean and stocked with everything you need! It was perfect for our family ski weekend! With 4 adults and 5 teenagers it’s nice to have some separate spaces and we’ll as large together spaces; and this house had it all! We also didn’t have to drive anywhere as we were able to walk wherever we wanted to go! The kitchen was well appointed and met our needs nicely!

Rustic, clean, comfortable with plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed over the New Years weekend. The light parade and fireworks show shouldn't be missed! Thank you for sharing your home with us. Description of property is accurate. Clean, comfortable, well stocked kitchen with plenty of extra small appliances (hand mixer, coffee pot, waffle iron, etc.) Very close walking distance to the Day Lodge, Sitzmark, Bake Shop, Bike Shop, local restaurants and to the local Mercantile grocery store. Beds were very comfortable and home very well maintained. I loved having the washer/dryer right by the front door, very convenient for throwing wet gear right in the dryer. Owner/Manager was very easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend and will stay with this owner in the future.

A winter note: to be aware of the possibility of early morning avalanche control done by Alyeska Ski Resort. The booming noise could be a bit un-nerving if you were not aware of what avalanche control sounds like.

Christmas break family ski trip

  • 4 of 5

Our family came down for 4 days from Anchorage, we had adults and children from ages 5 to 14. The home accommodated us all perfectly. The kitchen was well stocked with spices and misc. common needs and the linens were also. It was nice to have the option of either cooking a homemade meal, dining out and or picking up forgotten groceries at the local Mercantile. The home was overall very comfortable for us all. Downside was that the house is very dated and the kitchen could use a good cleaning and it could use an update.
