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 getaway in the trees with hot tub!

  • 5 of 5

Patty and Kevin provided a very beautiful setting for my wife and me on our honeymoon. They were so nice to provide champagne and flowers on top of a beautiful place to stay. The hot tub is very clean and very relaxing on the upper patio. The kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances and there is ample entertainment with the TV and movie choices. The 10-minute hike to Virgin Creek Falls is well worth the hike! Patty was very welcoming and provided a very nice stay for us on our honeymoon. While we were here in September, this seems like an amazing place to stay if you are going to Alyeska Resort.

Thank you very much Patty and Kevin!

Quiet, lovely, modern cabin

  • 5 of 5

I loved my two night stay here! I came down from Anchorage to do a mini-retreat and it was a perfect place to do it! A beautiful handcrafted modern cabin lovingly decorated with all of the amenities including a hot tub on the deck perched above the grounds and the world's most comfortable bed. Its quiet. Its secluded in a Girdwood neighborhood at the end of a road with the Virgin Falls Trail nearby. I travel a lot for work and play and would definitely recommend this place to anyone. I didn't want to leave!
