About Laura Beam

We designed and built this vacation rental to reflect our own requirements for a comfortable place to stay when we travel. Our priorities are 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

We are commercial fishermen in Prince William Sound. Girdwood's location to the 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!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about Laura and her place. What really stood out was the impeccable condition (clean!) and attention to detail. Real life exactly matches the photos.

I've stayed in many rentals and this one was truly among the very best. It also has a great location relative to Girdwood activities (walking distance to "downtown"), and is very private, quiet, and has all necessary amenities. Laura also provided a variety of breakfast foods and other kitchen essentials, and lots of useful information about local activities.

Thanks, Laura! We'll definitely stay again if we come back to Girdwood.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great in Girdwood AK! Our 'home' was just lovely - everything you possibly needed - and the bathtub was fabulously big! Very clean & modern. I would definitely recommended anyone visiting in the area book this great apartment.

Comfortable, clean and tasteful.

  • 5 of 5

This was the nicest by far of three properties we've stayed in in Girdwood. Clean, recently built/remodeled and well appointed property with plenty of bed options for our family of four. Owner was very helpful and prompt with resolving minor issues- wifi out at one point, disposal issues- and general correspondence. About a ten minute walk to the day lodge. Thanks!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Laura's place was amazing. I don't have the words to describe the beauty of Girdwood - go visit. And our stay couldn't have been more thoughtful, clean and special. I'm very particular about cleanliness and don't have a single bad thing to stay. It was simply perfect. The place was immaculate, well kept, and so comfortable. It felt like home. Laura had breakfast foods for us in the fridge which was so special and thoughtful. I hope we get to visit often and will definitely stay here again if it's available. Thank you so much for everything. Also it was quiet and peaceful. Great bed and jacuzzi tub. We loved our brief visit.

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.
