Alaska House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

This beautiful newly constructed cedar home has everything you could possibly want in a vacation rental. It's close proximity to Alyeska Resort and several restaurants makes it convenient for both downhill and cross-country skiing and some of the finest dining in Alaska. There is also a full service spa, many summer hiking/biking trails and winter backcountry skiing available by helicopter or Cat.

We have an information book at the property or would be happy to help you with booking activities during your stay. You may, however choose just to relax and enjoy all of the features that the home has to offer. Enjoy the outdoor hot tub and maybe even catch a lucky glimpse of the Northern Lights or sit by the woodstove and enjoy all of the other luxury amenities. (Wi-Fi internet, gourmet kitchen, jetted bathtub, marble walk-in shower, and much more.

Catering is available locally. If interested please inquire with the owners when booking property.

Each bedroom is equipped with a queen sized bed. One bedroom has a loft that can also be used for sleeping. Please note the loft is not equipped with a bed but would work great with children old enough to climb up and down the stairs safely.

If you have any other questions about the property please let us know.

Nice little house with a good all-around feel.

  • 5 of 5

Owner was very helpful and kept in good communication with me. House was very nice and fully equipped with everything we needed. Property wasn't as secluded as we hoped for but it was still a great place to stay.

Beautiful Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

My Son & I stayed in Sarah's home for 12 days during March & April. The house is conveniently located 15 minutes walk from Girdwood New Town site where there are good places to eat/drink & top up food shopping at the excellent little Crow Creek Mercantile. The Alyeska resort is a further 15/20 minutes walk.

Travelling to Alaska by air meant not being able to bring much equipment, but this didn't matter here. We did a food shop in Anchorage before the scenic drive to Girdwood. The house was so well equipped that we required nothing else. We found cooking oil, basic foods, herbs, spices, cleaning/dish washing /laundry chemicals, in fact everything that you would have at home. Other renters probably do as we did, leaving unused non perishable items at the end of the stay, but Sarah has clearly put much thought & effort into equipping the house so completely that you can travel light. In any event, the local Mercantile could supply anything else that you may need.

Check in/out was easy & Sarah was available by phone for any problems (we had none) & lives within a mile of the house. The neighbour's elderly Labrador, Kira, would come over for some company if I was outside sweeping the porch area - very welcome because I was missing my own dog back in UK

Overall, I can highly recommend both the Girdwood area & the house. If the description fits your needs & you like what you see in the photos, you will love this home, because that's exactly what you get - & more!

Thank you Sarah

Beautiful, clean, rustic yet modern. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely! Large, yet cozy. Very clean. Loved the hot tub and privacy. Lots of extras that made the difference ex. Condiments, bath robes, toiletries, even flip flops for the hot tub area! Just a completely comfortable and relaxing home to enjoy. Would return to this place for sure!!!!

Girdwood cabin Review

  • 5 of 5

My family spent Christmas at the Girdwood Cabin and it was absolutely perfect. The cabin owners were warm and very helpful and assisted us with all of our needs. I would recommend this property to anyone.
