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 getaway spot.

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculate, beautifully decorated and very relaxing. The location was secluded yet had easy access to shops and restaurants. The Virgin Creek trail to waterfalls and a mountain stream was so cool.

Just Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Patty, the owner, is just about the sweetest person you'll ever meet. The chalet is very comfortable, private and very clean. But it's the little things. The owners take the time to add little touches to try to enhance your stay. From fresh flowers on the deck, the little necessities in the fridge, frosted beer mugs in the freezer, to a very clean and ready to use hot tub...and I loved the jacuzzi bath! After reading the guest book, I realized that they try to tailor amenities to fit the needs of their guest and enhance your stay. (Champagne for a couple who were celebrating their wedding anniversary.) Would definitely rent again.

Very clean, private and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon here and had a wonderful time. Cabin has a perfect location on the edge of girdwood tucked away from the busy Summer life. You can hear the creek flowing down the mountain too, which is an added bonus.

Delightful Jewel in the Woods!

  • 5 of 5

We two couples had the most delightful stay in this privately located setting with a wonderful waterfall just within walking distance to explore or simply listen to as we relaxed in the hot tub. Our 12-day vacation began with hiking and fishing south in Homer, moving northward with a stop in this lovely chalet to check out the Girdwood/Alyeska attractions before we headed further up through Anchorage, Talkeetna and Denali areas.

The landlady graciously met us as we arrived for a very late check-in, quickly showed us the amenities with assurances that we need simply call if we had any questions. When we return to Alaska again, we will certainly request another stay at this delightful jewel in the woods!

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.
