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.

Spring skiing with friends

  • 5 of 5

This was a combination study group/ ski trip for a long weekend which our group has been doing at different ski areas over the last 10 years. We have found using VRBO to find a nice house makes the stay more enjoyable as well as economical. This trip was no different. Julie, the property manager met us at the house and showed us how to operate and maintain the hot tub. We enjoy an apres ski hot tub! Julie was very helpful showing us the rest of the house. We found the kitchen had everything we needed. We usually prepare breakfast before heading to the slopes and we have lunch on the mountain. Most nights we found a nice place to eat dinner and enjoy good wine. We would recommend Jack Sprat and the Double Musky Inn. We cook a gourmet meal the last night and we found everything we needed at the small Safeway in Girdwood though we bought our other provisions at the Safeway( Carr's) in Anchorage. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were spacious and spotless. They have a washer and dryer which we didn't use but would be handy for a longer stay. There is a pool table but we didn't even uncover it to look at it.

The only negative to this trip was the weather was very unseasonable. the natives told us this was the worst snow year that they could remember and most of the mountain was closed. Alyeska has the lowest base elevation of any ski area in the US so it can be raining at the base and snowing at the mid station. When the clouds hover at the midstation level, visibility is gratly reduced on top. This time of year, waiting until the afternoon is not a bad strategy to enjoy the better light.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we've stayed in this home and it was just as great as the last two times. The home is warm and spacious with a beautiful kitchen and an amazing view of Alyeska, especially at night with the mountain lit up for night skiing. You definitely won't regret a stay at this lovely home.

Nice house

  • 4 of 5

Nice place good views of Alyeska. Hot water in master shower rainfall spout only has freezing cold water and I think they need a bigger hot water tank for the number of people they accommodate. Master bed is really uncomfortable not sure about the other beds. Other than that a nice place to stay. Probably wouldn't stay again due to uncomfortable bed.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the house! Unfortunately, the shower controls are hooked up backwards; there is hot water, but it’s opposite of where it should be. We’re sorry you did not know that! We will, however, now put up an extra sign and/or inform our future guests. Thanks for your feedback.

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
