Overview

Alaska Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

The property is rented daily, weekly, and monthly, with a minimum stay of 2 days.

This private one bedroom apartment, located on the second floor, has a modern design that is open and light filled even on a cloudy day with beautiful mountain views. Formerly a very successful Bed and Breakfast, it is now available for both short and extended stays and makes a great base for your Alaskan adventure.

There is a separate bedroom with a firm queen size bed and black out shades for sleeping during those long summer days. There is also a queen size Murphy bed in the living area. Leather seating, desk, Smart TV for streaming movies, cable TV, dining area and well equipped kitchen fill out the rest of your space and creates a complete home away from home.

Your bath entices with an oversized soaking tub with shower to lavish in after an inspiring day skiing, cruising Prince William Sound or enjoying one of the many activities that await you. Washer and dryer, ample closet space, and ski storage locker provide plenty of area to stash and tend your personal gear.

About Laura Beam

We designed and built Girdwood Good Night to reflect our own requirements for a comfortable place to stay while on vacation. Our priorities were to provide privacy, good design, natural light, comfortable furniture, and welcoming feel.

The only thing missing is you!

Laura and Dave

Laura Beam purchased this chalet in 2000

Why Laura Beam chose Alaska

Girdwood's proximity to Prince William Sound is what first brought us here and the great community has kept us here. Located on a quiet street with little through traffic, this rental is a ten minute walk to the Alyeska Resort Daylodge and a great base for your Alaskan adventure.

What makes this chalet unique

Girdwood enjoys an average annual snowfall of about 700", making it a perfect place for skiers and snowboarders. The unit is just a few blocks from the ski lifts. You'll be hard pressed to find a more cheerful, clean, and comfortable place to stay during your ski/snowboard or summer vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Big mountains, lots of powder, steep hills; equals sick vacation. Place was great!

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We flew in late Saturday but we easily found the place because of the clear instructions that Laura gave us. We came to Girdwood to attend a wedding and stayed only two nights. Laura had the place well provisioned. It was so comfortable and quiet to stay here. We were glad to stay here instead of the hotel.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay here. It is an easy drive from the airport and good location for activities in and around the area. The apartment is clean and comfortable. Also, Laura provided a nice starter selection of food for breakfast.

If you have kids, there is a public playground within a 5 minute drive and easy walking in the neighborhood.

Depending on arrival time, I would recommend buying groceries for snacks or meals in Anchorage. The local grocery store (small Safeway) has a limited selection and is a bit expensive.

Very Stylish

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this very stylish, modern, very clean, comfortable and well located apartment with undercover parking. Although in a residential neighbourhood, it was very quiet and there were views over gardens/bush out of each of the windows. The welcome pack was very good and enabled us to prepare our breakfast each day. Laura was very helpful throughout. Girdwoo was a good location to visit a number of places of interest including Whittier (interesting small town), Alaska Wildlife Conservation Centre (excellent), Winner Creek Gorge walk (pleasant), Alyeska Resort Tram (good views). We would happily return to Goodnight Girdwood.

Great home base for exploring the area!

  • 5 of 5

Laura has done an amazing job with Girdwood Goodnight! No detail was overlooked in creating this cozy, comfortable, clean home away from home. It's located in a residential neighborhood which made a great home base to explore all the area has to offer. While this isn't a bed and breakfast, Laura left us enough goodies to make our own breakfast on our own schedule. We actually preferred that.

The weather wasn't cooperative when we were in the area and several of our planned activities were canceled. We emailed Laura and she quickly replied with great rainy day suggestions.

Comfortable 3 day stay in Girdwood in June 2014

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed loft with modern furnishings. The pictures don't do justice to the property. The full kitchen and Murphy bed made for a very comfortable stay for 5 of us. Laura was generous in providing items for breakfast. Highly recommended!

Great hidden gem

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Gridwood Good Night for 3 nights. This 1 BR, 1 Bath condo apartment was clean, well kept, and spacious. It was a perfect home base for a weekend filled with excursions and adventures around Girdwood. We would highly recommend the Girdwood Good Night to anyone planning to visit the area, and would return again.
