The Girdwood Suite Retreat has some very unique and special features: The house & cabins are located on 0.6 acres surrounded by old growth forest and is one of the largest parcels of land close to the base of the Alyeska Day Lodge. The home was constructed in 2001 by EECC, one of the top custom home builders in Alaska. Our home is 3000 square feet designed to be open and comfortable. - It has one of the largest private outdoor decks(1000SQF) in Girdwood with a covered hot tub with a view of the Alyeska tram and the ski resort.
The features of our home include four bedrooms - 1 king, 5 queens and 1 single located in the walk-in master closet, full size front load washer/dryer and fully equipped kitchen.
In addition to the house, we have an 800 square foot Cabin with full kitchen, bathroom with shower, 2 full beds and a full click-clack futon.
The combination of the house and cabin make a total of 10 sleeping areas that accommodate 19 comfortably.

We arrived Saturday evening for a weekend in Girdwood and were thrilled with our stay. The property was beautifully maintained, the rooms were spotless, the beds very comfortable, and the location is central to everything Girdwood has to offer. Our favorite part was being outside on the spacious & private deck, enjoying the fireplace, hot tub, and the view. We have stayed at other locations in Girdwood, but this was definitely our favorite. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone who is looking for a getaway in Girdwood!
We had 16 of us stay here for our son's wedding that took place at the Crow Creek Gold Mine (great venue). Sue and Bill were wonderful in answering any questions that arose. The house was clean and well maintained, fully equipped with all that was needed. Nobody felt cramped. The beds were comfortable. We're already planning a reunion with this property in mind. I would highly recommend this property to others.
house was well equipped great deck and hot tub close to restaurants had a great stay hope to be back next year mark fiore
Very nice house and walking distance to all what Girdwood has to offer. Took a group of 5 customers from Seattle and they enjoy the house and the central location. (To Whittier-20 minutes and Seward 1.5 hours-fishing trips) Would recommend this to anyone who is looking at the Girdwood area. (Business group or families)
Location is great and walking distance to all the points of interest in Girdwood. House is as advertised.....clean and very impressive interior. Backyard deck and BBQ area is very open and accessible. Of all the houses/condos I have rented, this ranks as one of the best!
We had a great time at this home. First it's a great location, walking distance from resort, restaurants, bakery, and the bottom of the ski hill we all hiked up on a lovely summer day - to the top of Mt Alyeska! A great trek for 3 couples, my husband and myself, our two grown kids and their sweeties. Had planned to bring my 90-year old mom here (the home, not the hike) and had selected this home because she could have stayed in the Master bedroom on ground floor. Alas, she couldn't come after all, but we 6 had a marvelous time. We also rented 2 bikes (a great bike shop less than a mile (?) back out the highway! So each couple could spin round the town and on the bike trails. We cooked in most meals, and there was only one thing lacking in the kitchen: a large enough teapot to brew some Earl Gray (or whatever) for our gang. We don't do individual teabags - prefer sharing one pot.) But I'd be very surprised if owner Sue hasn't already seen to this, as she and her husband were most agreeable hosts. Always available, but never nosy. The kitchen has an abundance of cooking utensils, dishes, and nice appliances. We lacked for nothing. Appreciated the house-made non-toxic laundry detergent.
On another note, whoever gets the master bedroom on main floor should prefer soft beds.
I loved how the kitchen table gets morning light, and since I like to get up early to read or journal, I brew my tea, and sit in the sunlight. We ate all our meals there - cozier than the dining room, which would seat a lot more. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay, and I would recommend this retreat home to others - Especially for summer!
PS We all used the hot tub, which was private and well- maintained. PPS We had a fabulous last night meal at the Double Musky!!
