BEAUTIFUL LOG HOME WITH HOT TUB IN GIRDWOOD NEAR ALYESKA SKI RESORT

Girdwood House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Make yourself at home in our beautiful log home located in a quiet and convenient neighborhood in gorgeous Girdwood, Alaska! Girdwood is an active community located about 40 minutes south of Anchorage along the Seward Highway, and is a great location from which to base your exploration of Southcentral Alaska. Our home is nestled in a forested but easily accessible neighborhood less than 3/4 of a mile from Alyeska Resort. Set out on nearby biking or walking trails and explore what Girdwood has to offer: world class skiing and snowboarding in the winter and epic hiking and biking in the summer! Some of the best-loved restaurants in the Anchorage area are found in Girdwood. Hiking trails abound and come in a wide variety from easy to difficult, forested to above tree line, with opportunities to view waterfalls and wildlife to your heart's content. If you are visiting in the summer, you might like to consider tandem paragliding at nearby Alyeska Resort for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Explore the Kenai Peninsula with its vast array of hiking, fishing, rafting, and wildlife viewing activities, take a train ride to Seward, or travel the road system to Whittier, Seward, Homer or points along the way. Book a sport fishing trip or sea-kayaking adventure from nearby Whittier. The opportunities to get out and enjoy what Alaska has to offer are too numerous to mention. Our home is well-designed for your comfort with two bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, on the main floor along with the open kitchen, dining and living space and one full bathroom. The wood stove in the living space adds to the ambiance and comfort of our home, and we keep one of the two utility sheds on the property stocked with split wood for the stove. The master suite includes a large bedroom with a california king log bed and a private full bathroom. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room that can be used to accommodate two additional guests. In the fall of 2012, we added a deck on the back side of the house and a hot tub! You will find the kitchen stocked with a selection of breakfast items, coffee and tea for your convenience. The house has a cable TV, DVD player with a selection of DVDs, and is WIFI enabled.

We are a family of four residing in South Anchorage, about 40 minutes away from Girdwood. We moved to Alaska about 10 years ago and take every opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy Alaska. We spend much of our leisure time in Girdwood and the surrounding area, and found the perfect second home for our family only recently. We look forward to sharing it with you and are nearby to help with any of your questions about where to go and what to see while visiting Alaska! We have had the benefit of entertaining many out of state friends and family and can draw on our personal experiences as well as those of our local friends should you need some travel advice. Scott is a commercial pilot and Barbara works for the Alaska Railroad. We have two sons Skyler (7) and Dylan (5) and a great Alaskan dog named Kenai.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

We love Girdwood and have wanted to own a home in this community for years! Scott enjoys paragliding at Alyeska Resort, and the whole family likes to hike, bike and ski in the area. We find that when friends and family come to visit, Girdwood is a better base for their travels than is Anchorage or Eagle River as much of our favorite things to see and do involve traveling the Seward Highway to Girdwood and points south. We like the variety of amenities in the Girdwood community with its abundance of outdoor activities in addition to the upscale amenities of the resort and the great collection of local restaurants. Our kids love the wonderful Girdwood playground and skateboard park and biking along the paved biking trail as well as taking the tram ride up the mountain and paragliding with their Dad from the top of Alyeska. Our kids take ski lessons at the resort where they can start on a gentle slope with a magic carpet and graduate through Alyeska's ski school to the more challenging terrain that the resort has to offer.

What more can we say? We feel just about anyone will feel right at home in our place and should have just about everything you will want in a rental. New in 2012 is our back deck and hot tub!

Perfect Alaskan Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 21, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
The description is very accurate regarding the location and the photos depict the property perfectly. It is a gorgeous property. It's perfectly nestled, yet open at the same time. Quiet and peaceful, yet not remote. The owner's were wonderful, very responsive, and very friendly. The owner's give the property those "little touches" that make the whole stay just that much more special. The property was extremely clean and had wonderful appliances and kitchen needs. You can ski Alyeska, hike the Winner Creek Trail, eat at Jack Spratt or Seven Glaciers. I would recommend this to all!

Wonderful Cabin

This is really a beautiful cabin, that is so comfortable and homey. The owners take great pride in it and care for it, and their guests, so nicely. They even had breakfast items there ready for us to use the first day in case we didn't have them with us.
The deck was so fun, and provided a fire pit where we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows.
We would highly recommend this cabin. .

AMAZING LOG HOME IN GIRWOOD

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 11, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Scott & Barbara were amazing home owners. Both were very sweet on the phone and through emails. You can email, call or text them. You get more then what you see. I rarely write reviews. After 7 days on the cruise, 2 days in Denali and 1 day at Matasukra Glaciers, this beautiful log home was the PERFECT place to unwind. Driving to it along the Seward highway was an experience in itself. Try not to drive there past 11 pm, it can be a little difficult to find it in the dark and don't be fool by some of the neighboring cabins if you arrive there during the day...it's what inside that matter. You just feel like you're in a different world there...peace, serenity and ...word just can't describe it... We loved every moment of it & everything there...the wood work is just gorgeous... My daughter just wanted to stay "home" and said "mommy we need to stay home and relax and enjoy this place". She's 6. She loved the kid movie and toy selection and of course...the hot tub. Again, Scott and Barbara were wonderful hosts. They made sure we know how to find the home, gave us great tips on exploring the area and were so thoughtful and sweet and made us feel very welcome before we arrive and from the moment you step into their home. If you want to fish, there's no place nearby; however, just drive to Bird Creek or Portage Valley. We were undecided whether we should stay at another cabin with lakes nearby but is so happy we decided to stay here instead... In addition, this log home is so more gorgeous in person...you just have to experience this place... we brought our parents and again, my WHOLE family of 8 loved it (Mom, Dad,Grandparents & Kids). I know you and your family will too. We're back in Houston,Texas and we miss Alaska and this beautiful log home already... hope to come back and visit again!
