This place is as close to mountain as you can get) The condo is a spacious, one level, 950 sqft floor plan with its own front deck and direct access from outside. It also has direct access to a community room in the building with a Pool Table, Foosball, Ping Pong, and a Sauna.

This condo is bright with vintage ski furnishings, fully furnished kitchen with counter seating, and a 42” plasma TV with DVD and cable. There is also coin operated laundry available in the building.

Easy walking distance to base of Chairlifts, X-country & Hiking Trails, Day lodge, Sitzmark, Jack Sprats, Bake Shop, and Alyeska Hotel. Building is very family friendly!

Girdwood is a short, 35-minute drive from Anchorage along the picturesque Turnagain Arm. The valley is full of glaciers, mountains, streams, and trails.

Skiing:

Alyeska’s six chair lifts (two high speed quads) and one tram, and two Magic Carpets. The tram stops about ¾ of the way up the mountain at the mid-mountain facility with a cafeteria and the 4-star Seven Glaciers Restaurant and bar with amazing views of the inlet and the surrounding mountains. Alyeska Resort caters to all levels of skiers and riders with 1,400 skiable acres, 73 named trails and over 650' of snow annually November - May.

Hiking:

From the Crow Creek Trail, part of the historic Iditarod Trail, to the Winner Creek Trail which winds through Alaska’s northernmost rain forest and begins just feet from the condo’s front door, there are numerous ways to take in the great valley views. From a leisurely stroll to a several hour hike up the new North Face trail, to picking blueberries under the midnight sun, Girdwood offers numerous ways to enjoy the outdoors.

Biking:

A great paved trail with no roadway crossings runs 13 miles from Girdwood to Bird adjacent to the waters of the Turnagain Arm, and immediately below the surrounding mountains offering sweeping inlet views. The paved trail continues into and throughout the town of Girdwood.

We stayed in this condo while in Girdwood for our son's wedding. It was perfect... Great location, very clean, nicely decorated, well equipped for anything you need, helpful owner, and very comfortable. The pictures do not do it justice, as it is larger and nicer than shown. We would love to stay here again and would recommend it to our friends. We had a perfect weekend!

Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this place. The description was accurate. The setting was perfect. It was clean and well maintained. It was spacious and very well appointed, we had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The owners were VERY helpful. This property is right in the heart of Girdwood. Park your car and enjoy all that the area has to offer. We hiked up the mountain and rode the tram back down. We enjoyed breakfast and lunch at the Bake Shop. We sat on the porch and enjoyed the view. I would highly recommend staying in here if you visit the Anchorage area, Girdwood is the best.

Good and clean space

  • 4 of 5

We stayed there for a week, and the place was well stocked. The condo was clean and it felt like the owner had really thought of all the things that you might need and kept it. The bedrooms are good size. The only thing we felt was there were no windows in the bedrooms (could be pro for others). However, this is a vacation place and you are mostly out of the condo, so don't need so much sunlight. The owner was responsive over email. This was our first time staying in a vacation rental and had a very positive experience.

Great, spacious and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We were here in the summer and found it to be convenient to hiking, biking and restaurants. It is very roomy, comfortable and nicely furnished. The kitchen is supplied well with dishes, cookware and coffee maker. The host was very responsive and helpful with suggestions for our stay.
