About Lynne'

Patrick and Lynne' both own Alyeska Hideaway but Lynne' handles most of the business. Patrick was born and raised in Anchorage Alaska and Lynne' came up one summer in college and decided to make Alaska home. She is originally from Woodbury Minnesota.

Lynne' purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Lynne' chose Alaska

Alyeska Hideaway is a cozy log cabin - it gives you the feeling of home while away from home. It isn't one of those sterile rentals that is nice and clean but doesn't feel comfortable like your own place. Alyeska Hideaway gives you that very feeling.

What makes this cabin unique

How many people can say they have stayed in a log cabin before? The cabin is fully furnished and has all the comforts of home - linens, towels and everything you need in the kitchen. And YES the cabin has water and indoor plumbing! It is a log cabin yes but we are a civilized people :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay here. It was a sweet surprise to have blueberry bread awaiting us. On our adventure (after not receiving my luggage) to this destination we talked about hoping to see bears. Low and behold a black bear walked calmly across the road as we looked for our cabin. The flannel sheets were another bonus. Thank you for the hospitality and the clean warm place to rest. Much appreciated. Have a great week filled with blessings.

Nice Location tough stairway

  • 4 of 5

The owner is quite good about communication so we knew all to expect in regard to construction on another unit and the highway work underway. Girdwood is a quaint little town with several very good restaurants. It is conveniently located nicely between Anchorage and Whittier. The cabin is decently appointed and suffices as a short stay vacation cabin. For me with bad knees it would have been nice to know that the steps to that second floor loft is essentially a ladder. You pretty much must leave all of your clothing downstairs as there is no place to keep your clothing upstairs. This is not very private but is set back in the woods with other homes.

Any criticism is outweighed by the location and the care and concern of the owners.

Lovely log cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for three nights. It was a great home base for local exploration. Enjoyed going to Whittier one day and riding the tram / hiking at Alyeska. So nice to have a full cabin for the same price as a hotel room. Full kitchen if you choose to do your own cooking but great restaurants very close by.

Cute property, a bit small for our party of 5

  • 4 of 5

This property is a lovely little cabin in Girdwood. However, the sleeping situation was a challenge for our family of 5 which includes three teenagers. Be aware that the loft bedroom has a nice king size bed, but the second bed is tucked under the A frame ceiling in a manner that only one of our teens could sleep there. The third bed (a couch/futon on the main floor) was also comfortable for only one teen/adult, which meant that our third teen spent the night on the floor. The owners were very nice and were thoughtful enough to call us before check-in to make sure we knew of some local construction that made it difficult to see the street sign. Overall, I would recommend this property for smaller groups.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments Melissa and the information for future guests about the cabin layout. It is always helpful to get comments from previous guests. If you make it to Girdwood again please come to Alyeska Hidaweay for another stay - we are building a two bedroom cabin on the side of our home that will be able accommodate another group of 6 people (max.). The new cabin will probably be a better fit for 6 adults where our current cabin is a better fit for a family with smaller kids. Thank you again for choosing Alyeska Hideaway and hope you made many great memories on your travels in Alaska

Nice cabin in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We ended our recent Alaska vacation at this property and it was a nice way to do so! Lynne was a welcoming host who had a couple of loaves of (yummy) blueberry bread ready for us upon arrival. My daughter fell in love with her two dogs (Ollie and Monster) who also welcome guests to the cabin.

The cabin itself is clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Stocked kitchen, toiletries, comfortable beds, solid WIFI signal and basic TV.

The location is also good. Easy to get to attractions in the area - the Alyeska Tram (we skipped it due to cloudy/rainy days), Wildlife Conservation Center (inexpensive and fun stop for all ages, IMO), Crow Creek Mine (do it yourself - no pre-seeded pokes!)... Restaurants are also nearby.

Nice and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a nice stay at Alyeska Hideway. The location is great - close to everything. Lynne' is a wonderful host, who lives next door and is readily available to answer any questions. The warm blueberry bread was a treat when we arrived.

While there is enough room to sleep 5 people, it was a bit tight.

The cabin is clean, cozy and well equipped. Really easy check-in and check out process.

Location and comfort

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was terrific. If you're looking for a place that has an Alaskan feel but is also clean, comfortable and near excellent hiking or biking - rent this place. It was clean, spacious and appointed with everything we needed to make dinner at home. Lynne' was there on our arrival, showed us around and provided tips on dining, music and grocery options. She also showed us a map of all the excellent hiking options in the area. Our bed in the loft was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The little loaves of blueberry bread were a welcome treat after a long drive. The availability of coffee and half and half in morning was also a plus. I only wish we could have stayed longer.
