About The Owner

My husband designed and built this home. He is a jack of all trades. He is a builder, a Real Estate broker and also a Commercial Salmon Fisherman. I have an Alaskan Real Estate license as well. I have been a Property Manager for several nightly rental & Long-Term Condos for 7 years. Making the choice to open our home to share with other people goes right along with my current business. We have a son who is 9 years old. We both love Alaska and Girdwood. Girdwood is a great place for basing your stay. You can make day trips to Seward or Whittier as well as enjoy the great scenery and local activities. Having our home as a base, you might be so comfortable in the home that you forget to step outside. The logs have such a warm appeal to them, it is definitely like being in a home away from home.

The Owner purchased this lodge in 1997

Why The Owner chose Alaska

We built the home intending to do bed & breakfast. We did operate a very successful B&B there for over 10 years.

What makes this lodge unique

The home is very Large and the main living area is all open. This is nice for larger groups going on a trip together; they will not feel like they are stepping on each others toes. Large enough to find their own little area for quiet time if they want.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our son and daughter-in-law rented the lodge for their wedding. It is in a lovely setting. It accommodated 30 wedding guests very nicely for a wedding on the deck. It has a huge kitchen capable of feeding the entire crowd. The party went from Wed evening until Mon with most meals eaten there. It was clean when we arrived and had a well supplied kitchen. Victor explained how everything worked when they arrived. The hot tub was enjoyed by several.

Awesome House in Girdwood

  • 5 of 5

This is a spectacular home in Girdwood perfectly positioned for hiking and biking or just hanging out. The living areas are spacious and the house very well equipped. We were there for a wedding at the Alyeska Resort and staying in this house was a much better option than the hotel. Kimberly is a gracious host and took very good care of us. We had a small plumbing problem on the weekend (it happens) and she was all over it. If you stay here don't forget to check out the Double Muskie in Girdwood. But if you plan to cook, buy groceries in Anchorage. You can get pretty much whatever you need in Girdwood but it is oh so pricey.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week in Alaska. This house was perfect for a family with older children. Our kids are 20, 22, 25 and 26 and it was perfect. Everyone had their own space. Also this was the most equipped house we have ever rented before and very nice items. Cookware and dishes were exceptional. I would stay here again if we ever go back to Alaska. The owner was great at recommending outfits to call for adventures like fishing, hiking, ice climbing etc and everyone she recommended was just the same - EXCEPTIONAL!!! Excellent house to rent and excellent owner to rent from.

Perfect stay, great location to kick off many adventures.

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 days in Girdwood, with a great kick off to the stay by the owner showing us how best to use the home. Roomy and accommodating along with providing many wonderful inside the home visual queues of the splendors of Alaska. The travel cards at the front door was a pretty nice touch to help enjoy the area.

Highly recommended

Even better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the house don't do the property justice! The house was immaculately maintained, clean and well stocked for a trip to Girdwood. It have everything we needed and then some. Perfect spot for a group of guys on a ski trip or a large family visiting the area. Would highly recommend this property to others and if we head back that way will certainly be requesting another stay.
