Comfortable family home along bike path at the base of Mt. Alyeska Ski Resort, in Girdwood, only 30 minutes south of Anchorage along majestic Turnagain Arm.

Girdwood offers a bounty of both winter and summer activities, from downhill and cross-country skiing in winter to hiking and biking in the summer.

Our home is designed for family relaxation. The newly-remodeled upstairs includes four bedrooms, TV room, and full bath. One of the larger bedrooms also provides entertainment with a foosball table. Downstairs includes a kitchen, dining room, living room, full bath, and washer/dryer. The front of the house includes a large covered deck that captures the warmth of the southern sun.

Local sightseeing includes riding the Mt. Alyeska tram to view all seven glaciers of the Girdwood Valley, and visiting nearby Portage Glacier and its Visitor's Center, Crow Creek Mine, Chugach National Forest, Prince William Sound, and the museums and shopping of Anchorage.

Great comfortable place to stay with kids!

  • 5 of 5

This property was within walking distance of the ski lifts and very comfortable for our entire family. We had 4 children all 3 years old and less and was perfect for us! If you have children and are looking for the right place, this is where you want to be. My wife and I spend hours on research in finding a place wherever we go and rely on these reviews so I hope this helps anyone who are is in a similar situation. Thank you!

Cozy ski cabin is great for families

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been coming to Stumpy's for a week every year for the past four years, and we love it! Lots of bedrooms and beds enough for our family and a set of grandparents. We can walk to the lifts, and there are lots of hooks in the entryway to organize tons of gloves, helmets and jackets. The living room is a cozy hangout, and we can check the ski conditions from the dining room window! The kids love the foos ball table in the bunkroom. We love that we can walk to Jack Sprats restaurant (another one of our favorite spots in Girdwood). The owners are very organized and responsive. Stumpy's is becoming a family tradition that we hope to continue for years to come.

Clean & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This house felt very welcoming. It has everything you need (shampoo, coffee filters, cooking staples) and asks only that you replenish what you use. The couches are super comfortable and have room for everyone, the beds have crisp linens and good mattresses. Plenty of water pressure for hot showers. It is the ideal home away from home. We stayed for a fishing trip in Whittier and had a 30 minute morning commute to the boat - it was a good location between Whittier and Anchorage.

Nice place, however

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this Girdwood property. The circular layout and bunkbed room was good for the kids. Convenient location and well stocked. The price per night was appropriate for the property, however, there was a cleaning fee added that was almost half the nightly rental rate. Also the renters asked for additional money for a broken bowl. I have no problem replacing the bowl, however, if you advertise as a family friendly place, may want to reconsider stocking it with bowls that cost more to replace than feeding a family of four at a restaurant. Renter did return a computer cord that was left behind, that was much appreciated.

Clean, Comfortable, and Well-stocked

  • 5 of 5

This lodging worked well for our Girdwood stay for a near-by wedding-family gathering. Appreciated the owners accepted a two night stay. I think this would be a cozy ski-weekend spot to stay. Lots of fun family and local memorabilia in the house.
