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.

Great cabin with awesome scenery

  • 5 of 5

We had nice relaxing weekend in this cozy cabin with great views of the mountains. Patty was very nice and welcoming. Enjoyed gazing out into the wooded scenery while making breakfast and an awesome time unwinding in the hot tub while gazing up at the stars.

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.
