Exceptional Location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent Location

The house was great. We easily accommodated the 7 members of our family. The house is well stocked and the Washer & Dryer was a plus. The place provided us the perfect location to travel to various locations and we had an experience we will never forget. Thanks

Bucket List Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome! We reviewed many houses and were fortunate that it came available. We were a family of 11 and it very much accommodated us. This is very much their family home and the owners have everything you will need. Any questions or issues Jenny and her husband were just a phone call away. The hot tub was just a welcome after long days of hiking. Loved the community, so much to do. Can't recommend this house enough!

Perfect mix of rustic & lux!

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described, very comfortable. The location is so convenient, makes a great hub for trips to Seward, Prince William Sound & the airport for a day at Brooks Lodge. Did a lot of awesome hiking in the immediate area & when we were through, there were plenty of restaurants to enjoy.

So glad we chose Girdwood as a base & our hand crafted cabin "home-away-from-home"

Great, relaxing experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! The house was well-stocked with everything we could have needed. Everyone agreed their beds were very comfortable, and there were plenty of towels for bathing as well as after the hot tub. The kitchen had every utensil or pot and pan we could have ever needed. We enjoyed walking to the Sitzmark and Jack Sprat for dinner; the house is maybe 5 minutes walking distance from either restaurant. The hot tub was clean and wonderful to relax in after long days of hiking. Jenny was extremely responsive and attentive to our needs. We would definitely stay again and recommend it for others!

Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a family vacation to Alaska and this cabin worked perfectly. The cabin was as good as advertised and views were great. The owners were fantastic to work with - very attentive and quick to follow up to ensure our needs were met - both before and during our trip. Will plan on staying there again on our next visit!

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cabin in June of 2016 and had a wonderful time. The place is as beautiful as it's pictures. The living area and the loft are just lovely and so is the view. The place looks like it was just built. The bathrooms are very nice, the kitchen has all the bells and whistles you would like and is VERY well stocked with cooking equipment. Girdwood is such a lovely little town with good restaurants and good people. There is so much to do there and you are centrally located between Seward and Anchorage. The owners were so sweet and easy to work with. They answered all the questions we had promptly, both before we arrived and while we were staying there (and we had a lot). I whole heatedly recommend the Alpine Haus to anyone visiting the area!!
