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.

The house was clean and very well supplied.

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and very well supplied. Lots of room. Near to all the things we wanted to see and do. We went to Whittier and did a glacier cruise, to Seward and saw the aquarium, we rode the tram, we went to the Alaska wildlife conservation Park, and we went to Nicholas Petit sled dog summer camp. It was a family reunion and we had two houses and I certainly like ours the best. Lots of room for kids to play, and the kids just loved it. If I go to Girdwood again, that's where I'll stay

Wonderful location with everything you need!

The house is very well equipped for a home-away-from-home vacation. The location was amazing and walking distance to town as well as to the resort. Highly recommend!
