About Kevin & Patty Montague

We have lived in Girdwood for over 30 years - and Alaska for a lifetime. We have raised three children in this community and we are rooted here. Girdwood provides easy wilderness access for hikes in the summer and skiing in the winter. Our family members can provide personal local tours if desired.

Kevin & Patty Montague purchased this chalet in 1997

Why Kevin & Patty Montague chose Girdwood

Virgin Creek Lodge is a sanctuary for people wanting a break from everyday urban living. There is 'weather' here…it's dynamic and ever changing - never static. Girdwood is a leisure based community where people from all Alaskan walks of life live… in the classical sense - Life is simply good here.

What makes this chalet unique

Girdwood valley is North-America's most northern boreal rainforest. Natural rejuvenation of the the senses - wonder. Complementary nature walks upon request.

Alaskan Dream

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at 4 or 5 locations in Girdwood over the years, but this was the best. Originally, we were taking a ski vacation, but due to my having a slight cold and my wife a slight injury we just came to relax. We hiked up the trail that began right at the driveway and walked through a fairyland of snowy rainforest. The frozen waterfall was truly a marvel to behold. We really relaxed watching the snow come down in the privacy of the hot tub on the deck. On NYE, we went over to the ski resort and watched the torchlight parade and fireworks. Virgin Creek Lodge was perfect for us. It was more than relaxing - more like serene.

Beautiful quiet get away

  • 5 of 5

We found the fully equipped chalet as advertised. The owners greeted us and were available but not needed. Be aware there is a bath with hand held shower head wasn't a problem for us.

Fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay here. The location is the best of the many rentals we’ve experienced in Girdwood - a few minutes from town but at road’s end, completely peaceful and private in the trees, with pretty views to the ridge above and a glimpse out to Turnagain. The hot tub is in pristine shape. In general, the apartment was quite clean, new and well appointed, including the kitchen. The missing star is due to half the family not caring for the weird roof lines and odd spaces created by the loft-like nature of this above-a-garage apartment; and the lack of “spread out” space for wet gear, luggage, etc for a family of four. Still - for the stuff we really value - solitude, beauty, cleanliness - this rental was wonderful.

Awesome Views and Near Creek. Absolutely the BEST to seek comfort!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Kevin/Patty for sharing your special Chalet with us. This is a piece of heaven and we loved every moment. We love the touches this place has. It is a place to really appreciate the importance of life. Coming to Alaska has been one of our best travels and our stay here has been "phenomenal", feeling relaxed. Truly special! This place has everything you need to cook wonderfully and take a great bath to relax all the muscles. The bed and extra comfy. Very quiet and peaceful. You have a great T.V. to watch movies and all great. The trail is so near your home called "Virgin Creek Falls Trail" and only steps away from this beautiful home and a real treat. The views are awesome feeling like a true treehouse! We will be back in the winter and find relaxation here next year and away from California. We will be back for sure and very soon!.

Beautiful place to relax and adventure

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Virgin Creek Lodge was wonderful! Girdwood is a quaint little town with many hikes and activities nearby. The cabin itself is very private, and comfortable. There are so many personal touches that make this feel like a home away from home! I would recommend, and would love to be back someday.

Better than expected, the Internet photos do not do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

The personal touches made it so much more than expected...Virgin Creek Lodge was spotless and the fresh flowers and breakfast goodies were a wonderful plus. The hot tub was so relaxing and the hosts made us feel so welcome. We highly recommend staying here!

Virgin Creek Lodge is nestled on one and a half acres against Max's Mountain in a forested glacial valley, above Virgin Creek. The lodge is on a ridge line facing south/southwest with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and Turnagain Arm. Virgin Creek Falls hiking trail can be directly accessed from the property. The 'Falls' trail head provides a gateway to alpine hiking in the summer and back country skiing in the winter.

Virgin Creek Lodge is on the end of Timberline Dr. The gravel drive, on the left side of the cudesac, is steep and requires AWD or 4WD for the winter months. A second driveway, at street level, is provided.
