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.

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.

A beautiful log cabin with lots of room and walking distance to the lift.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this house. Tons of room for our group of 9 people. Walking distance to the chair lift and with enough snow you could ride all the way back down to the front door. The bar is close, has great music and a fun ambiance. The hot tub is clean and covered but outside for lots of fresh Alaskan air. Kimberly and Vic were very nice, helpful and close by if something came up. Couldn't recommend this place more.

Wonderful home walking distance to Alyeska lifts

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Winner Creek lodge. Kim and Vic made our stay incredibly pleasant. The check in/out process was easy. The house is well-appointed with linens, towels, toiletries, and all of the kitchen essentials. Beautiful gourmet kitchen was the key place to hang out for apres ski. The expansive open living area was a perfect place for us to relax and play some good old games, which they provided. Another great thing about the house is that there are 4 complete bedroom suites (plus an extra bedroom), so if you have 4 couples, they can all have their own bedroom & bathroom. That sure is a treat. The house is a very easy walk to the Day Lodge at Alyeska where you can buy tickets and catch a lift up the mountain. Hope to return to this house again in the future!
