Great house for families!

  • 5 of 5

We shared the holidays with our family and totally enjoyed staying at this home. It was very comfortable, with great views of the mountains, close to the day lodge, in a quiet neighborhood and fun for the whole family. You will enjoy this home!

Large home great for big groups!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for three nights. The house was well equipped and clean. The view from the house was magical - better than Alyeska! We loved using the hot tub and pool table and each of the bedrooms were large and comfortable. Overall a great stay!

The house and views were amazing. We loved everything about it!!

  • 5 of 5

There was 8 in our group. We all loved it. The beds were so comfortable we slept very well. Jackie is very pleasant and we enjoyed our visit with her. We loved her recommendations on what to see in the area. We definitely will stay here again along with renting from Jackie. The area is very beautiful and quiet and the Virgin Falls are in the neighborhood. There’s a few neighbors but we never saw or heard them. The house had everything we needed and more. I recommend this house as it has plenty of space along with the Alaska feel to it.

Beautiful home with amazing views, great place to relax with plenty of room for everyone

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good experience staying in this home. The description was spot on. It has beautiful views, plenty of room for everyone to spread out and an amazing deck off of the main level for relaxing and taking it all in. The fully equipped kitchen is a nice plus as well as the option of parking inside the garage. It is just a short drive to the hotel, chair lifts and restaurants. We would recommend this place to all.
