About the property

Mountain Views From This Newly Remodeled 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Log Home.

Girdwood is the perfect location for your summer and winter adventure base. Its close proximity to Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula make it an ideal place for a unique and memorable experience.

Relax with all the comforts of home in our beautiful and cozy log cabin. The Crystal Mountain Cabin comfortably accommodates 6 guests (or up to eight with the twin beds, for a small additional fee). This lovely cabin is a great place to get away for couples, families and friends. The large open floor plan has a great room feel downstairs with one bedroom and full bathroom. The 3/4 loft has 2 queen sized beds and is separated by a large ceiling height partition. There is a small bathroom in the loft.

The living room is a great place to spend time, with the gas fireplace that is very inviting. Our modern kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need to cook at home. The large bathroom downstairs has its own washer and dryer.

Girdwood is home to world class downhill and cross country skiing! It is only a short, two minute walk to the lifts of Mt. Alyeska and a quicker ski home to your cabin. Moose Meadows is directly down the street and it is your access point to the extensive nordic ski trails.

About Cindy Ryan and Doug Robbins

This cabin is owned by life long Alaskans. Doug grew up in Seward, and Cindy in Anchorage. We love living in Alaska and would be happy to assist you with ideas of places to visit, go fishing and hiking during the summer.

Cindy Ryan and Doug Robbins purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Cindy Ryan and Doug Robbins chose Girdwood

As avid downhill and cross country skiers, we were fortunate to be able to use this wonderful cabin during the winters for many years as it belonged to family friends. We were overjoyed when they offered us the opportunity to buy it from them. It is the perfect spot to ski down for a quick lunch, break or dinner if you are night skiing. It is safe and quiet and a great place for kids.

We spent our summer totally remodeling almost every aspect of the cabin; upgrading plumbing, electrical, appliances, and decks. It was a true family effort and our 17 year old daughter worked right along with us and was a blessing as well as a huge help!!

What makes this cabin unique

This location and scenery are truly spectacular. It is on a quiet dead end street. There is no need to drive anywhere. It is walking distance to nearby restaurants, bars, and stores. Nearby trails offer great hiking and biking and the shuttle is nearby.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"This Girdwood cabin is absolutely perfect for a cozy getaway. The house has a great Alaskan mountain vibe and is equipped with all new appliances, granite counter tops, and super comfortable furniture. The cabin is close to town, but is still tucked away in a great quiet and beautiful neighborhood. We loved our time here and will definitely be returning from our hometown of San Francisco as soon as possible!"

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and were able to enjoy it with our pups! Everyone was super accommodating and very nice - we even forgot a few items and Cindy arranged to get them back to us. We will be back! Thanks for sharing your wonderful little place.

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

Julie was attentive to all the details and was there to greet us. It was raining and the driveway was so icy. I called her and it was sanded immediately. We would love to stay here again.

A lovely hidden cabin, great for summer and winter

  • 5 of 5

While this area seems to be layed out for winter guests, summer guest will find a lovely cabin near multiple sights for adventure. Rather we searched for gold, visited the Alaska Wildlife Conservation area, went dog sledding or enjoyed great food, this cabin was located close to it all. More importantly, when we returned "home", we were welcomed into a lovely cabin nestled in the trees. It felt as if we were alone in the Alaskan countryside. Everything we needed (except, according to my granddaughter, a television) was available. There was even a "merk" (a small mercantile grocery store with the necessities) within a few blocks. There was plenty of room for our party of grandparents, daughter, granddaughter, and aunt. We would definitely return to this lovely cabin should we ever find ourselves in the Girdwood vicinity.

Beautiful quiet property that you would never imagine is right in the heart of Girdwood.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and very well kept. We had a great weekend and were very comfortable. You would never imagine this place is a couple of minutes walking time from the ski resort and shops with as quiet and private as it is. We will definitely be returning again in the future.
