Overview

Alaska Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Second Level of the Carriage House Chalet level with great views of Mt Alyeska

The Carriage House Chalet loft, is a second level, 600 square foot craftsman style unit with great views of Mt Alyeska. Quietly nestled in the forest on 2 acres along California Creek, on the edge of the Chugach State Park, yet conveniently located directly across the street from Alaska's famous Double Musky Restaurant, 1 mile from Alyeska Ski Resort, and just minutes to great hiking trails, shops, restaurants and so much more.

This craftsman style unit offers uncompromised comfort with deluxe linens on a pillow-top mattress and a full bath with all amenities This unit has a gorgeous, large kitchen with all appliances and utensils, granite counter tops and views of Mt. Alyeska. The dining table is just off the kitchen and the living room is furnished with a comfortable queen size sleeper sofa, a large flat screen smart cable TV, WiFi and a private entrance and deck.

The Chalet, an 1,860 square foot timber frame Barn, was originally built in 2005 to be used by owner Jake Thompsons as his wood shop, stalls for the two Percheron draft horses, Kobuk & Tecumseh “the boys” used in the Carriage business, and a hayloft above. In 2010 one of the boys was lost due to health issues and the other was retired. The years following the renovations began, sanding all the beautiful Douglas Fir timbers and enclosing the stall areas. The transformation was amazing and the new units are nicely appointed craftsman style luxury. The Carriage House Chalet Loft is often referred to as the hayloft, as it once was.

New Hayloft - Beautiful + Spacious

  • 5 of 5

My mother and bridal party rented the newer rooms at the property. The Hayloft is a large unit that covers the entire second floor and is very spacious and brand new! This unit is probably the most impressive in the entire property, it has a living area, bathroom, bedroom with a comfy bed, spacious kitchen with all the tools and glasses you'd need, and its own reserved parking space. Breakfast is made by the owners who were very friendly and made us feel at home. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if I am in the area, it's also conveniently located just across the street from the Double Musky Inn which is Zagat rated and has great drinks and food. Bonus points for being the closest place to stay if you are getting married at the Crow Creek Mine! :-)

Great location with wonderful owners.

  • 5 of 5

The loft is very comfortable with great views. Rachel and Jake were so nice and helpful with suggestions on where to find moose, the best trails for people with not so young knees and anything else we asked them about. The location is perfect, in between Anchorage and Seward. There is a trail close by to a bridge that crosses the creek to go to Town Square.

Beautiful, Cozy Loft!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at the Carriage House Loft. A perfect retreat for us. Beautiful high ceiling with exposed wood beams, granite counter tops, and comfy bed! Everything you could need in the kitchen with room to work. Close to town in a nice quiet area. We were there for the Thanksgiving week and had a great time. Rachel and Jake are wonderful hosts. If you get a chance, talk to Jake about his construction of the rental. He did a beautiful job.

The Carriage House B&B co...

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House B&B couldn't be more beautiful

-- from the amazing custom timber frame

structure to the warm and comfortable furnishings.

Our hostess, Rachel, was inviting and charming and

cooked a fabulous breakfast for our entire family.

What a great escape! We will definitely be staying

with them again.
