Overview

Photos and Description of the Girdwood vacation house rental

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full and One 1/2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Beautiful Custom Craftsman-style home built in 2010 is your perfect destination stay in Girdwood. Featured in Alaska HOME magazine Winter 2014 issue.

Great location with walkability access to slopes, restaurants, bike/hiking trails. On the Glacier Valley shuttle bus route as well. Quick walk to ski lifts and Day Lodge (winter) area hiking trails, Crow Creek Mercantile, Post Office, and Girdwood Clinic.

Whether your travels to Girdwood are winter or summer, our location makes a perfect base for day trips to explore the Kenai Peninsula or Prince William Sound. In summer, the Kenai Peninsula offers the outdoor enthusiast unlimited options: hiking established USFS trails, mountain biking, guided whitewater rafting or kayaking, clear water fishing, ocean shore dip-netting, or a gorgeous scenic drive all the way to Homer and Kachemak Bay.

Prince William Sound and all it has to offer is easily accessible via the Whittier Tunnel, a quick 30 minute drive south from Girdwood. Seward is about a 2 hour drive south on the Seward Hwy from Girdwood. Both are deep sea ports for cruise ships, the Alaska Marine Ferry system, and numerous local fishing charters and scenic cruise boats to view marine wildlife and blue-ice glaciers that cap surrounding mountains.

Another day trip option during the summer is to catch the morning Alaska Railroad train at the Girdwood "Depot" for a breathtaking and relaxing 3-hr train ride in glass-domed cars to Seward, take an ocean cruise charter out of Resurrection Bay to the Kenai Fjords National Park for a couple hours, wander the streets of historic Seward, then catch the evening train back to Girdwood. The train route is different than the Seward Hwy corridor so you get to see mountains, glaciers, rivers and wildlife that are not accessible by road. Alpine Air, located at the Girdwood Airport offers summer helicopter tours and glacier dog-mushing rides in Punchbowl Glacier above Girdwood.

Winter activities include backcountry skiing in Turnagain Pass -- a mere 15 minute drive south, cross-country skiing here in Girdwood at Moose Meadows, and the 5-mile Nordic loop accessible near the Hotel Alyeska. Chugach Powder Guides offers heli- and cat-skiing for the serious powder hounds. Downhill skiing on Alyeska Mtn is just two blocks away with high-speed quad lifts to whisk you up the mountain. There are also two Magic Carpet conveyors for beginner skiers/boarders right at the base.

We are happy to assist you in planning your adventures -- whether day excursions or exploring the local features of Girdwood and Glacier Valley.

Our home has a very comfortable, well-furnished living area open to the kitchen and dining area. There are three large bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a large, fully-equipped and stocked cook's kitchen, gas fireplace, radiant floor heating, and wrap-around covered deck. Master bedroom with king bed and en suite bathroom on main level, two large bedrooms with mountain views, and full bath upstairs.

Location

Car: necessary

The property's location has great walkability - ski lifts, the post office, grocery store, and all restaurants are all within a half mile or so from the house. The bike path that runs through Girdwood is continuous from the Hotel Alyeska all the way to Indian on the Seward Highway -- about a 35 mile round trip ride. We frequently ride just to Bird Point and back home -- only a 20 mile ride and the scenery along Turnagain Arm never disappoints!

Crow Creek Historical Mine is open summers and offers visitors a chance to pan gold and learn about the early gold miners that founded our community of Girdwood.
