About the property

Spacious getaway for family and friends in the heart of Girdwood

Experience a slice of Alaska at the Mountain View Guest House! Relax in the 6 person outdoor hot tub after a day of skiing, or play billiards after dinner in this lovely 4 bedroom, 3 full bath home located in beautiful Girdwood, Alaska. This custom home has all the amenities necessary for a comfortable visit, suitable for up to 10 guests. (Two of the bedrooms have a queen AND a twin, in order to suit your group’s desired bedding configuration. There is an extra charge of $25 per person per night for each extra person above the ten person occupancy for this house. Contact us for rates for groups of up to twelve). If you have a special event in mind, we may be able to accommodate you; special fees and/or deposits may apply.

Enjoy the great room with the granite stone floor, radiant floor heating, and 20 foot vaulted ceiling with 12 foot windows facing Mt. Alyeska. The open floor plan of the living room and kitchen invites guests to linger around the gas fireplace, enjoy a meal around the large dining room table, or watch a DVD on the large, flat screen TV. You can even catch up on your email with high speed WiFi. The master bedroom has a fireplace, private bathroom with walk in shower and Jacuzzi tub. The four bedrooms are located upstairs, along with an open loft that has a futon sofa/bed. There is another full bathroom and laundry room with washer, dryer and folding area upstairs.

From this home that is centrally located with a view of Mt. Alyeska, you can venture out to ski (downhill and cross-country or helicopter skiing), hike, pick blueberries, shop, bike, fish, dine at fine restaurants, romp in the community built playground, go flightseeing, and more.

For those frosty mornings, you can park your car, bikes or skis in the heated 2 car garage. Children are welcome, making this home a welcoming spot for family and friends. Under new ownership but with the same manager, the Mountain View Guest House continues to be a wonderful vacation get away.

About Shawn and Maggie Gannon

We have lived in Alaska for the past 23 years and fell in love with Girdwood the first time we visited this beautiful, scenic town many years ago. We lived in Germany for 3 years and Girdwood brings back wonderful memories of southern Germany. Spending time in Girdwood is a great way to renew our love of the mountains, and we thoroughly enjoy hiking and fishing in the summer, and skiing in the winter. We love our home in Girdwood so much and hope you will enjoy it too!

Shawn and Maggie Gannon purchased this house in 2015

What makes this house unique

Beautiful home near awesome skiing

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the pleasure of staying in this home for a Christmas family gathering. We wanted for nothing because this home was so well equipped and clean. We enjoyed the view of the mountain at night. Hot tubbing was a welcome treat after a long day of skiing and snowboarding. The pool table provided hours of entertainment as well. Highly recommend and hope to visit again in the future. Thank you!

Gorgeous mountain home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home for Christmas. It was BEAUTIFUL!! First of all Girdwood makes for a beautiful white Christmas at 10-15 degrees warmer than Anchorage. It’s close to the resort, my niece and nephew went skiing in alyeska as well as ice skating. My husband and I took our baby in a sled and walked to several locations for food and coffee. The house itself has four spacious bedrooms, three full bathrooms. Comfortable beds and nicest of all... heated floors! The kitchen was fully stocked. We lit the fireplace, played Christmas music and had a lovely family Christmas with memories to last a lifetime.

House was beautiful and well furnished. We had a group retreat at the house and it was a very comfortable space for our meeting. The house was warm and comfortable and the beds were very comfy.

Wedding Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The house is spacious, clean, and accommodating. The property management team was cordial and responsive. Be mindful that homes in this area are in close proximity of each other and it is not uncommon for neighbors and pets to walk through the yard. We didn't have any issues but were surprised a few times. Overall, the area was safe and the neighbors were friendly. We really enjoyed hanging-out on the main floor, playing pool, watching football, and cooking meals. We'd stay here again.
