Overview

Girdwood Lodge Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This spacious, executive-style house is located two blocks from the base of Mount Alyeska Resort in the beautiful Girdwood Valley, a 35-minute drive along the ocean shores of Turnagain Arm south of the downtown Anchorage metropolitan area.

As one of the finest luxury rental homes in Girdwood, this all-redwood-sided house features a large, gourmet kitchen with Brazilian granite counters, a professional gas cook stove, an Indian slate floor, elegant stainless appliances, and a roomy kitchen island for seating and entertaining. Offering over 3,000 square feet of luxurious space, decorations include a variety of local art from Alaska's best known artists and multiple alaskan motif stain glass windows.

The main living area has hardwood floors, and features a large open circular fireplace with multiple couchs and chairs around it and a wall of windows with a gorgeous view of Mount Alyeska. There is also a game room area with a pool table, juke box, stereo, and a carpeted TV room with a DVD/VCR surround sound system, cable TV and several more comfy couches and chairs for relaxing at the end of a hard day. The main bathroom features a large, multi-person 80-gallon Jacuzzi tub set in travertine tile, perfect for melting your aches and pains away. Wireless internet is available for those travelers needing to stay in touch with the world.

There are four carpeted, roomy bedrooms upstairs and a bath to service three of the bedrooms in addition to the Master Bedroom bath (and a third full bathroom on the main level).

1. Master Suite: One king-sized bed, TV/DVD and a private bath with jetted jacuzzi tub.

2. Bedroom Two: Two queen beds and one twin bed, TV/VCR.

3. Bedroom Three: One queen bed, one twin bed and a full-sized baby crib.

4. Bedroom Four: Two double twin-sized bunk beds (total of four beds).

If you are looking for a comfortable house to base your South-central Alaska travels from in one of the finest communities in Alaska, Girdwood Valley is it. On the shores of Turnagain Arm, surrounding by seven glaciers, tall mountains, North America's northern-most rain forest and located 35 minutes from Anchorage along one of America's most scenic coastal highways, Girdwood is to Alaska what Aspen is to Colorado.

Come relax in our little piece of heaven!

About Audrey or Win Faulkner

My wife and I were born in Anchorage and have lived and skied in the mountains around Girdwood and on Mt. Alyeska since our youth. After spending many years outside Alaska getting educated, we returned to our home state, fell in love and have been raising our family here ever since. I am a general aviation pilot and enjoy flying around Alaska and seeing the state. I run a real estate business and rental properties in Girdwood and Anchorage.

Audrey or Win Faulkner purchased this lodge in 1996

Why Audrey or Win Faulkner chose Alaska

Mount Alyeska and the town of Girdwood is Anchorage's local ski resort, nestled in the heart of the Chugach Mountains just a short drive from Anchorage. Girdwood is a charming town that is filled with huge spruce trees, surrounded by mountains and glaciers and best of all, it snows a ton in the winter making the skiing some of the best around. Summers are fabulous as well with great bike trails and hiking trails throughout the valley.

What makes this lodge unique

Our home is just a few hundred yards from the base of Mt. Alyeska. Located on a well kept bike path that leads to the mountain, walking or biking from our home and accessing the rest of the Girdwood Valley is easy. Our luxurious home is very open and spacious, has a wall of windows facing the mountain, and a large open circular fireplace that will make you feel like you are in your own ski lodge.

Alaska Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As if visiting Alaska wasn't enough, staying in this house added to the experience. It was a great place to come home to, relax, and rest up for the next day. It's very easy to get to, convenient to Anchorage, Whittier and Seward. There is plenty of room for everyone. Just a short walk to a local grocery/provision store and restaurants. We'd definitely stay here again, when back in Alaska.

Great location and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

The comfortable Faulkner Girdwood lodge proved to be a perfect home in a perfect place for our family of twelve. The six adults and six grandchildren enjoyed every inch of the home. The game room and tv room were a real hit with the kids and the living room with a fire in the center fire place was enjoyed by the adults. The kitchen was well equipped, allowing us to eat most meals in. We even appreciated the large utility room. Girdwood is a charming place from which to enjoy the beauty of Alaska and the unlimited activities.

Warm, comfortable, and clean housing!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a beautiful stay for us during our week in Alaska. Everything was in good condition, the kitchen was more than fully stocked, and the living room with fireplace was amazingly comfortable and relaxing! The beds and rooms were clean and warm, and the water was hot. Location was also very good, close to many sights such as Byron and Explorer Glaciers, Whittier, and of course Anchorage. Thank you for setting the foundation for an incredible trip!

Wonderful Family Time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 enjoyed a wonderful 5 night stay at the Faulkner lodge in Girdwood in October. This was perfect for everyone - 2 kids, 2 parents, 2 grandparents. The fireplace that is the centerpiece of the living room is beautiful. We toasted marshmallows and made s'mores with our grandsons. The boys loved the pool and foosball tables, a nice break from electronics! We prepared wonderful meals in the beautiful kitchen. The location was perfect, a short walk to everything, and the view was beautiful. The Faulkner's take care of every detail to make sure that their guests have everything they need for a wonderful stay. We highly recommend this lodge, and can't wait to go back again.

Perfect location and stellar lodge!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for opening this beautiful home for us to rent. The location was perfect for us, it had all the amenities plus all the fine touches anyone could ask for. Everything worked beautifully and Audrey was available when I had any questions. I recommend this for any age and for large families. We felt very welcome, Audrey met us at the house to show us around and had smoked salmon, crackers, and cream cheese with chives for us. A wonderful welcome. The beds were comfortable, lots of hot water. And plenty of space. It was immaculately clean and we would rent here again in a minute. Thank you for the sincere hospitality.

Mt Alyeska Wedding

  • 4 of 5

I loved having my family in one roof. Unfortunately, having my bedroom on the second floor was hard for me and I could have used handicap bars in the Master Bedroom. Everything else is excellent. Owners are very hospitable (had a welcome appetizer for us) which I froze and brought home but my children advised me not to eat the salmon since it thawed out on the long flight home.
