About The Owner

My husband designed and built this home. He is a jack of all trades. He is a builder, a Real Estate broker and also a Commercial Salmon Fisherman. I have an Alaskan Real Estate license as well. I have been a Property Manager for several nightly rental & Long-Term Condos for 7 years. Making the choice to open our home to share with other people goes right along with my current business. We have a son who is 9 years old. We both love Alaska and Girdwood. Girdwood is a great place for basing your stay. You can make day trips to Seward or Whittier as well as enjoy the great scenery and local activities. Having our home as a base, you might be so comfortable in the home that you forget to step outside. The logs have such a warm appeal to them, it is definitely like being in a home away from home.

The Owner purchased this lodge in 1997

Why The Owner chose Girdwood

We built the home intending to do bed & breakfast. We did operate a very successful B&B there for over 10 years.

What makes this lodge unique

The home is very Large and the main living area is all open. This is nice for larger groups going on a trip together; they will not feel like they are stepping on each others toes. Large enough to find their own little area for quiet time if they want.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our son and daughter-in-law rented the lodge for their wedding. It is in a lovely setting. It accommodated 30 wedding guests very nicely for a wedding on the deck. It has a huge kitchen capable of feeding the entire crowd. The party went from Wed evening until Mon with most meals eaten there. It was clean when we arrived and had a well supplied kitchen. Victor explained how everything worked when they arrived. The hot tub was enjoyed by several.

Winner Creek - Fantastic Stay in Girdwood!!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Girdwood for Easter 2015 - we were a group of 4 on a heli skiing trip with Chugach Powder Guides. This house was perfect for our group and I would highly recommend it for anyone taking a trip to Alaska. Not only is the property spacious, but is very well equipped with all amenities. The outdoor hot tub is great for relaxing after long ski days, and the indoor common space is very nice and great for larger groups too. We will definitely be looking at coming back next year!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 guests comprised of young folks and not so young folks. This home made us at ease from the moment we walked in the door. There was plenty of space for all to do what they want. The big kitchen table served as our game area, very easy to fit 8 around. The dining room table was our puzzle and fine dining space. One of our young men is a chef and we really enjoyed what he made in the well equipped kitchen. The hot tub was wonderful to soak our muscles after a day of hiking around Seward and Kenai. My sister and I shared the master while the kids all had their own rooms. We all agreed that the beds were so comfortable! (all kings and one twin) It was wonderful to feel the radiant heat coming through the floors! Very convenient to walk up to several restaurants and the slopes. The owners made the whole process of renting for the week easy and explained all about the house. It was truly a wonderful experience that made the whole trip relaxing! Hopefully will return again!

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with three other couples booked this amazing log home for a weekend ski trip. Upon entering the home we were amazed at the size of the main living area and gourmet kitchen. The bedrooms were all very nice and each had their own private bathroom. The master bedroom upstairs was amazing.

Unlike many of the homes we researched when booking our trip, this home is actually walking distance to Alyeska (about 5 mins to the lifts). Many of the other homes we looked at were advertised as walking distance but were actually a mile away. We didn't have to worry about resort parking and it was very convenient to go out and get first tracks on the slopes in the morning.

Many of the features of this home were highlighted upon returning from a long day on the slopes. Radiant floor heating was great for warming up your feet and the gourmet kitchen and gas grill were ideal for making an outstanding meal. The outdoor hot tub was a great place to unwind (and help your sore muscles after hitting the slopes all day).

Overall this was a perfect house for a weekend getaway with great friends. The owners/agents were a pleasure to work with during the booking process and they made sure we understood how to operate all the systems associated with the house. I give this home my highest recommendation and I hope to get the opportunity to stay here again!

Beautiful home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful log home located in an excellent jumping-off location to see the many sights of SE Alaska. Home has all the amenities and is huge. Had four couples stay for the week. Big enough for all the privacy you need. Nice deck out back with grill and terrific kitchen for the gourmets who want to dine in.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

My Aunt and Uncle live in Girdwood, and we, my husband, myself, our two boys (18 and 20), my father and my niece rented this home as a base for our family visit as well as travels in and around the Girdwood area. We needed a place where we could enjoy visiting with family as well as visiting the area. This house provided a convenient location to both the trails and highways needed to discover the area. Alaska was amazing and the time with family was priceless. We enjoyed our stay at the house, everything was as beautiful as stated in the description. We will definitely be returning.
