Overview

About the property

Craftsman Style Efficiency Cottage with a king bed, kitchenette and living room

Craftsman style 350 square foot timber frame efficiency cottage on the first floor, side wing of the Carriage House Chalet and includes: one bedroom with a king size bed, full bath with amenities, living room with a double leather futon sleeper, flat screen cable TV, WiFi, and kitchenette - including microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, complete dishware, sink and access to outdoor grill with side burner. Soak in a gorgeous timber frame gazebo covered hot tub nestled in the trees on the beautiful 2 acre estate.

The Chalet, an 1,860 square foot timber frame Barn, was originally built in 2005 to be used by owner Jake Thompsons as his wood shop, storage for the Carriage and harnesses and stalls for the two Percheron draft horses, Kobuk & Tecumseh “the boys” used in the Carriage business, with a hayloft above. In 2010 the boys were retired, and in the years following the renovations began, sanding all the beautiful Douglas Fir timbers and transforming a once rustic room to nicely appointed craftsman style luxury apartments. The Carriage House Chalet Efficiency is referred to as Kobuk's Stall, as it once was.

Your hosts are Rachel Hatcher and Jake Thompson. Jake grew up in Balboa (The Canal Zone)Panama and spent summers in Sabula Iowa, then later lived in both North and South Florida before coming to Alaska.

We have lived in Alaska since 1994 and love the outdoors, travelling and meeting our guests from all over the world and sharing our knowledge of Alaska.

Rachel Hatcher purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Rachel Hatcher chose Alaska

The Carriage House Estate, acquired in 1996, includes two homes built by your host Jake Thompson on 2 landscaped and wooded acres along California Creek, with great views of the surrounding mountains and forest. The main home/lodge, a 3,400 square foot custom timber frame with massive beams, river rock fireplace and beautiful craftsmanship throughout, has operated as a Bed & Breakfast since 1999. The Chalet, an 1,860 square foot timber frame Barn, originally built in 2005 to be used by owner Jake Thompson as his wood shop and stalls for the two Percheron draft horses, Kobuk & Tecumseh “the boys” used in the Carriage business, with a hayloft above. In 2010 one of the boys was lost due to health issues and the other was retired. The years following the renovations began, sanding all the beautiful Douglas Fir timbers and enclosing the stall areas. The transformation was amazing and the 3 new private units are all nicely appointed craftsman style luxury.

What makes this cottage unique

The Carriage House Chalet is nested in the spruce and hemlock trees on 2 acres, along California Creek with great views of Alyeska and Max's mountain. Located on the edge of the Girdwood townsquare, within easy walking distance to many restaurants (directly across from the Double Musky Restaurant), and shops and only 1 mile to Alyeska Ski Resort. Numerous trails can be accessed right out the door in the Chugach State and National Forests that surround this property.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I so enjoyed staying here. We stayed in Kobuk's Stall. Very comfortable and cozy and beautiful woodwork. Great location too. Easy drive or walk to many of Girwoods restaurants or hiking spots. Rachel and her husband were wonderful hosts. While breakfast was not included, for a small fee Rachel invited us to join others in the main house. Her breakfasts were amazing. We would definitely stay here again!

Enchanting Location with Gracious Host

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here. Located in peaceful, woodsy area just across the street from the Double Musky. Close to town but an easy walk or free shuttle to get you where you want to go. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and a cut above anything you will find in town. Rachel was a wonderful host and cook. She suggested a hike along Winner Trail which was the best hike we took in our 2 weeks in Alaska, and she even provided us with a ride to the trailhead.

Very clean and cozy, great location!

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a great location close to the double musky, silvertip, chair 5 and the Merc. Shuttle stop across the street to get you to resort, jack sprats and sitzmark. Beautiful property...clean, quiet and cozy unit. Wished the hot tub was open later than 10pm. Hot tub was clean and very nice. Loved our stay here!

Clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very friendly and accommodating. They take very good care of their units and property, and it shows. We only stayed one night, but enjoyed our time. The unit (Kobuk's Stall) was incredibly clean and well kept, with a super comfy bed. It's the perfect size for one or two people, or those traveling with one small child. We enjoyed the hot tub in the gazebo with views of the mountains. This is a separate unit on the ground level of a bigger property. We were fortunate that those staying in the other two units were not loud (didn't even hear them) but, if you're traveling with an infant or small child, or if you're a light sleeper...consider booking the upstairs unit just in case you get some folks who aren't as quiet. This unit is in walking distance of the Double Musky restaurant (across the street) and "downtown" girdwood. Maybe a 5 or 10 minute walk to the other restaurants, Mercantile, clinic, etc. Great quiet location, but in close proximity to amenities. Would definitely book with Rachel and her husband (the owners) again!

Owner's Response: Carriage House Accommodations offers 3 private Cottages, that are part of one Chalet, with super sound insulation, so our guests shouldn't hear other guests. CHA also offers B&B guests rooms in the main lodge, each with a private en-suite bath and access to guest common areas with a kitchen, living and dining room. All this on a private 2 acre forested property, just on the edge of town for easy walking.
