COZY AND PEACEFUL CHALET FOR YOUR MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE

Girdwood Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

In this peaceful neighborhood, you will find the perfect base camp for your Alaskan adventure. The Hinterland Chalet is designed to provide you with a cozy stay in Girdwood with full kitchen and sleeping amenities. This timber frame chalet boasts beautiful redwood siding. Built by climbers in 1983, the recycled redwood came from Anchorage's original REI store.

On the main floor, the kitchen and living area are surrounded by windows. The kitchen and bath have just been remodeled with new floors and counter tops. The floors are radiant heated for toasty toes no matter what the temperature outside. The bedroom on the main floor has a full sized bed and closet. The futon in the living room also folds out to a full sized bed. The main loft hosts a queen sized log frame bed where the moon shines bright on clear nights. This is the master bedroom of the house with a full closet. Up the ladder you can escape to the tree room for reading, relaxing, or gazing out through the forest. Complimentary coffee, tea, hot cocoa, and spiced cider are provided for your enjoyment.

The large deck with seating in front is perfect for relaxing after a hike, or, if you love a bonfire, warm up by the fire bowl. This 1,000 square foot chalet is well suited for families and friends in groups up to six people.

We have lived in Alaska for 30 years and love this beautiful state. We feel fortunate to be raising our family here and look forward to the time we get to spend in Girdwood skiing, snowboarding, hiking and just enjoying the laid back, friendly atmosphere.

The Owner purchased this chalet in 2010

We chose this particular property due to its location. Located on a third of an acre on a quiet, dead end road, it is very peaceful. The cabin is surrounded by hemlocks and in the summer the hummingbirds and blueberries are plentiful. It is centrally located with several restaurants and the local grocery within walking distance. Whittier, Seward and Hope are easy day trips by car should guests want to explore places other than Girdwood.

St. Moritz sits at the base of Max's Mountain and ends shortly after our chalet. The neighbors are genuine and the blueberries sweet. When the sun shines, it warms the gravel roads and brings everyone out to visit and share stories. For the adventurous spirit, the back door leads to excellent powder skiing in winter and quiet hikes with bears, forest flowers and birds in summer. This is a quiet, serene place.

Exceeded Expectations!

Due to a last minute change of plans, we were forced to "settle" on a 2 BR for our group of 5. Mom, Dad, 18, 15, and 12 yrs old... We were completely thrilled with this property. Kathy was friendly and accommodating, and configured the chalet to meet our needs. It's a great location, super clean, comfortable, and we'd stay there again in a heartbeat. The chalet shares the lot with the owner's second home, but this in no way detracts from the charm of this cottage. We sorta needed the internet (Yeh, I know, but it's work related) so we'd drive over to the Alyeska resort and log in there, but that was all that was missing. Friendly, responsive owners always make these rentals a hit, and these owners left us completely happy. We highly recommend this property....loved the stay!!! Cozy and peaceful, just as advertised :) Keep your eyes open...a black bear wandered up the road while we roasted marshmallows one evening at the great little fire pit!!!

Owner's Response: Robin, we are delighted you had such a good time in Alaska and at our cabin. Your family sure lucked out with the weather, one of our best summers on record! I wish we could have come down to meet all of you, but we rarely get the chance to use the other cabin during the summer months, it is our winter getaway. Our little black bear "friend" was replaced shortly after you left with a mama moose and her twin calves, they bedded down right behind the cabin for a few weeks. By next summer I am hoping our local cable company with be more accommodating with their internet services and we can offer it to our clients. Thank you for your kind comments, and for the pictures you sent us of your campfire visitor!

We enjoyed your lovely cabin, so thoughtful of you to have coffee and tea available. We enjoyed hiking, mining, kayaking, cruising and the silence.

We spent 2 weeks traveling the coastal areas of Alaska, last three days were here at this chalet/cabin to unwind and reflect upon our vacation. This was by far the best place to do exactly that! this vacation home has everything you could possible need or want including space, scenic beauty, laundry, BBQ, fire pit, inside and out it was perfect for our family of 4 with 2 girls 8 & 13 We had a moose family laying outside our bedroom window, and just 5 minutes form the cozy friendly town Girdwood! loved it and would definitely return

Owner's Response: Jessica, we are delighted you had such a good time at our cabin. The surrounding wooded area does provide a fun place for kids. Our 8 year old and his friends have spent many hours exploring and playing just as your daughters did, then cooking smores by the fire pit! We really appreciate you sending us the picture of the mama moose and her twins that bedded down out back, I have added it to my VRBO website listing. Thank you so much for your kind comments and come back anytime!! Best regards.

We included a couple of days in Girdwood on our recent trip to Alaska because we wanted to enjoy their annual "Forest Fair". Good idea. The fair was fun, the town is beautiful (loved the tram ride) and our stay at the Cozy Chalet was a perfect fit, comfortable, quiet, peaceful. We would not hesitate to book again.
