About Kevin & Patty Montague

We have lived in Girdwood for over 30 years - and Alaska for a lifetime. We have raised three children in this community and we are rooted here. Girdwood provides easy wilderness access for hikes in the summer and skiing in the winter. Our family members can provide personal local tours if desired.

Kevin & Patty Montague purchased this chalet in 1997

Why Kevin & Patty Montague chose Alaska

Virgin Creek Lodge is a sanctuary for people wanting a break from everyday urban living. There is 'weather' here…it's dynamic and ever changing - never static. Girdwood is a leisure based community where people from all Alaskan walks of life live… in the classical sense - Life is simply good here.

What makes this chalet unique

Girdwood valley is North-America's most northern boreal rainforest. Natural rejuvenation of the the senses - wonder. Complementary nature walks upon request.

Perfect Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a belated honeymoon in Alaska in March, and by far the favorite place we stayed was at Virgin Creek Lodge. It was clean and with a very comfy atmosphere. We loved the full kitchen and being able to cook ourselves breakfasts and dinner there. And relaxing in the very luxurious hot tub with the winter air around felt utterly decadent! Patty was very friendly and helpful checking us in and out but otherwise we had total privacy. It was beautiful and everything we hoped for when we booked our stay. We hope to come back!

Perfect, romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for my boyfriend and I. Patty was there to greet us and the cabin was just the right size. Wonderful location and amazing hot tub. I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

Clean and great location

  • 5 of 5

I'm a local that likes to get away to the ski town from time to time. I stayed at Patty and Kevin's property twice in 2 months this winter and LOVE it!

I find reviews to be a great source of info for those people who are interested in booking rather than for the Montague's.

-Hot tub is private, clean and worth it! You do not share with any other tenants and that is a HUGE plus for me. (bring flip flops in winter because the area surrounding the tub is very icy!)

-Hosts provide milk, creamer, OJ and coffee beans. Several options such as a coffeemaker, french press and a moka pot for brewing your coffee.

-Nice to have a washer/dryer in unit for after hitting the slopes/hiking

-Driveway ends at popular trailhead in town that leads to Virgin Creek Falls. It's a 5 minute walk to reach the actual falls.

-Bed sleeps 2, pullout bed sleeps 2 (and is more comfortable than the actual bed), and then there are 2 mattresses that roll out of these bean bag chairs. They look like massive dog beds but work well for kids.

-There is no standup shower (as others have mentioned) just a bath with a detachable shower head. Not a deal breaker but good to know before going.

-Minimal interaction with the hosts but good communication and just a text away if we ever needed anything. The apartment is above their garage but not facing their actual home.

Property is clean, quiet and close to the ski resort. Can't wait to stay again!

Perfect place to return to and relax after full days of skiing.

  • 5 of 5

Patty was very welcoming and greeted us / showed us around when we arrived. The house, location, and layout are lovely. Easy to relax and feel at home for a few days.

Wonderful, secluded spot

  • 5 of 5

This place really is wonderful. You couldn't ask for a better place to relax surrounded by wonderful mountains and trees. Kevin and Patty were both extremely inviting hosts and were very accommodating when Mother Nature threw a wrench into our scheduling and plans.

The space is extremely well taken care of and we were provided with many necessities upon arrival. Kevin showed us around, but other then that we were left to ourselves.

I would highly recommend staying here in Winter (our trip) or Summer.

Virgin Creek Lodge is nestled on one and a half acres against Max's Mountain in a forested glacial valley, above Virgin Creek. The lodge is on a ridge line facing south/southwest with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and Turnagain Arm. Virgin Creek Falls hiking trail can be directly accessed from the property. The 'Falls' trail head provides a gateway to alpine hiking in the summer and back country skiing in the winter.

Virgin Creek Lodge is on the end of Timberline Dr. The gravel drive, on the left side of the cudesac, is steep and requires AWD or 4WD for the winter months. A second driveway, at street level, is provided.
