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.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Girdwood

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.

What makes this chalet unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We LOVED your wonderful cabin! Your tree top room was such a special place for my girls. They spent most of their time up there. We really appreciated all the amenities of home and the super location. Perfect for our family. Thank you!

Peaceful

The cabin was the perfect retreat. We were in a great area for day trips and we even stayed inside and enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere on a cool, rainy day.
We loved it.

Lovely Chalet!

  • 5 of 5
Everything was perfect at this chalet... I would highly recommend! We were in town for a wedding and loved staying here. It was comfortable and cozy. We loved taking our wine up to the loft area. Having wifi was a very nice plus. The shower is amazing as well... terrific water pressure! Would not hesitate to book again!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Lindsey, so glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. The "tree room" is a wonderful place to relax with a glass of wine, I especially love to sit up there when it rains and listen to it hitting the metal roof. We hope you can come back in the future when you have more time to spend in Girdwood! Thank you again for your kind comments.

Fantastic location, nice property and wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5
My family of five stayed at this property during our trip to Alaska. We are from MA, so a "drive by" was not an option. I also had never used VRBO so I was a bit nervous when I started the process. After speaking with Kathy I was much more at ease. In addition to answering numerous questions, she was interested in helping us make the most of our time by offering suggestions on things to consider doing in the area etc. Everything was better than expected, and we fully enjoyed everything the property had to offer including the tree top room and fire pit. Would return to this property in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Thank you Lynne! We are happy you and your family had a good time on your visit to Alaska. Most kids do love our "tree room," and I enjoyed reading the note left by your daughter. I am glad the weather was good and you had the chance to use the fire pit, it is my favorite spot on warm summer evenings. Thanks, again!

WONDERFUL CHALET

  • 5 of 5
This chalet was absolutely perfect for me and 2 of my senior friends who used it as home base for our Alaska Adventure. We stayed 6 nights. It is perfectly located and has everything you need. It is more affordably priced than a hotel and offers all the amenities of home. We were able to prepare some meals which saved quite a bit of money. The washer and dryer are a big bonus and allow you to pack less clothes. In additon the owners are very accommodating. They even left us recommendations for stores, restaurants, and hikes; all of which we used. I will definitely stay here next time I visit this part of Alaska.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Lynn. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay at our cabin. It sounds as if you made good use of your time in Girdwood, and the other areas you visited while in Alaska. It is our little slice of heaven and I want to thank you again for leaving it in such excellent condition, you and your friends are invited back any time!!

Wonderful forest get away

  • 5 of 5
While on an extended stay in Alaska to visit our daughter, we called this place home for nearly two months. It was wonderful place to stay among the tall spruce and fir trees in Girdwood. Every window looked out on the green forested slopes, secluded but close to town. Very relaxing. The cottage is outfitted with nearly everything you could possibly need, including a washer and dryer. The towels were big and fluffy, the beds were very comfortable, the silverware, plates and utensils were of good quality. The large deck with gas grill were an added bonus, which we used nearly every evening to grill outside. We will definitely be returning. We wish to thank Kathy, Alan, Alex, Coco and Pixie, for allowing us to share their little piece of heaven in Alaska.

Amazing Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is just perfect! My husband, a friend, and I were in town for a wedding, and this place was the perfect location in Girdwood. The cabin was very clean and updated. We felt right at home. It had everything we needed. Truly this is a great place! We had a opportunity to visit other cabins in the area, because other friends were staying in town, and we felt this cabin was the best! The owners were extremely welcoming, answered all the questions we had, and made the renting process very easy! We wish we could have stayed longer. We will defiantly be coming back!
