Cute cabin in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We came to Alaska to go hiking. This cabin was definitely located near many great trails including trails at Alyeska Resort. The cabin is cozy and cute inside and out. The heater works great. The beds are comfortable. The bed linens were soft and comfy. The towels were soft. We played lots of card games after our hikes. There is no tv or internet. There was plenty of hot water. The water from the faucet was amazing, cold and delicious. We made a short beautiful drive (40 minutes) to the Anchorage Walmart to get a hair dryer, some wash cloths (the cabin had 2) and a larger pan for cooking soup and a better potato peeler. (I might be picky, lol) The cabin had everything else we needed. The stores in Girdwood are a couple? miles away. They have a small grocery store with a inventory that will impress and the prices seemed lower than Walmart's. The neighbors were friendly. The neighborhood appeared to be very safe and quiet. Laura was quick to reply to our questions and very friendly. We really enjoyed our stay here and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Charming and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I wish we would have been able to stay here more than one night - such a charming little cabin. We stayed here with my boyfriend's parents and there was plenty of room. Kitchen has all the tools you need and the bedrooms are small but comfortable. The flowers outside were very beautiful!

The perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Very cute and comfy. Lara provided a lot of nice touches that made us feel welcome and at home. There are good restaurants, gas station and laundromat within a few miles. We stayed for 10 days and it was wonderful to come "home" and relax after our busy day. It is about 40 miles south of Anchorage but it was ideal for us. We were able to easily do day trips to Seward, Hope, Whittier, Homer, Anchorage and Wasilla. There are plenty of places to stop along any of these drives to do trail hiking, watching wildlife, visiting shops, etc. We would absolutely stay there again and highly recommend Lara's cozy cabin.

Nice place to base a stay in the Girdwood area.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very nice and clean and stocked with the basics less a toaster. Comfortable for 4 people.

The neighbors left a little to be desired. We were chased into the cabin by an aggressive white sheep dog and it looks like a squatter set up across the road in a trailer and abandoned car. Would not recommend a walk around the neighborhood but the Girdwood area has many nice trails that make up for it.

Owner's Response: Our cabin is located in a forested residential neighborhood at the base of Max’s Mountain and close to local trails and attractions. It consists of several established bed and breakfast and vacation rental accommodations as well as primary and second homes. Girdwood is a friendly community, and we enjoy raising our family alongside the other families and their pets in our neighborhood. We, as well as the many guests to our area, often enjoy going for neighborhood walks. We wish we would have known about these guest concerns so that we could have addressed them at the time of their stay. Guests can reach us via text, cell, or email and we are happy to answer any questions they may have.

Cozy cabin, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great weekend away at the cabin. Felt very at home and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Very quiet and woodsy but close to the center of Girdwood.

Enjoyed the nearby one hour hike with a free ride down the Alyeska tram at the end. Ate at great restaurants in the area.

Lara was exceptionally responsive and helpful, even when I forgot details at the last minute.
