About Trish Wenger

We bought our Girdwood home in 2007, moving back to the United States after 11 years overseas (including 6 years in Switzerland). Living in Girdwood was a great way to renew our love of the mountains, and we thoroughly enjoy hiking and fishing in the summer, and skiing in the winter. Our jobs took us to Seattle recently, but because we love this house so much, we’re keeping the house, and hope you will enjoy it too!

Trish Wenger purchased this house in 2007

Why Trish Wenger chose Girdwood

We had been living overseas for more than a decade and relocated to Alaska for my husband's job. We instantly fell in love with this scenic town of 2,000 people on the edge of the Chugach Mountains with its spectacular outdoor activity options including hiking, skiing, fishing, and more.

What makes this house unique

Great view of the mountain from the living room. Double car attached garage, pool table, hot tub.

Wonderful accomodations!

  • 5 of 5
10 of us stayed here for 4 days for our annual "girls" weekend holiday retreat. The house is as advertised, well appointed, beautiful kitchen, very large, comfortable bedrooms, outdoor hot tub right off the living area and incredible walk in showers. We had an awesome time and the property manager, Julie, was very pleasant to work with. We plan to return next year.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed 3 nights in this wonderful property. Everything was just as pictured and was perfect for the 8 of us. The host and property owner was very responsive and provided clear and precise driving directions to find the house. It was like a dream for us and was a most memorable family experience.

Owner's Response: I am glad that you and your family had a magical holiday at the Mountain View Guest House. Two years ago we moved to Seattle for my husband’s job. Now we love to return to enjoy the Girdwood Valley and our beautiful home. I hope that you will be able to come again. Jay & Trisha Wenger

Had a wonderful time. The house was great. Lots of moose in the neighborhood. I'd use them again if I was in the area.

A wonderful week to relax, enjoy, remember, and soak up the beauty of Alaska in its full glory

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed staying at the Mountain View home from the time we arrived until our departure. The description of the property was very accurate and the photos helped us know what to expect. It was wonderful to have everything so sparkling clean and in good working condition. We hope to return someday and would love to stay in this home again if there is opportunity to do so.

Our six grandchildren enjoyed the books, games, and toys, not to mention the hot tub. They felt right at home and we all felt a genuine welcome from Julia. We used the home as our rest stop as we toured the Girdwood-Portage area and the rest of the Kenai Penisula. There was plenty of room to stretch out and relax and we especially enjoyed time in the kitchen cooking meals together. We found everything we needed and soaked up the views in nearly every direction of the mountains.

The beds were very comfy and when we finally wore down after a long day of activity we were able to get good rest and quiet. The house is beautifully designed to present outstanding views of the mountain and the view while soaking in the hot tub is wonderful.

We brought most of our groceries from Anchorage, but found the local market had most everything we had forgotten or ran short of. The laundry room was just what we needed after traveling in other parts of Alaska before we arrived.

We visited Portage Glacier, the Wildlife Conservation Center, Whittier, the Alyeska tram, Seward, the Kenai Fjoids, fished on the Kenai, panned for gold, and hiked to glaciers. We appreciated all the information that was available in the house about things to do and how to get there.

Most especially, we appreciated being personally welcomed and felt right at home in this lovely place.

Fabulous Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have been happier with our weekend getaway at this rental. The house is beautiful, very well equipped with everything you could need, very clean and well appointed. The rental management company was very prompt with any questions we had and extremely easy to work with. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were very spacious and clean. Plenty of room for a large group to gather in kitchen and living area. We are ready to book for next year!!! Thank you so much for making our weekend getaway so wonderful!
