Nightly/Vacation Rental

Virgin Creek Lodge is a one bedroom chalet in Girdwood, Alaska - a popular all season recreational village. The chalet is secluded at the end of a quiet and serene road. Virgin Creek Lodge includes a Sundance hot tub perched on an elevated deck surrounded by dense woods with a 'peek a boo' view of Turnagain Arm & Kenai Mountains beyond. This home was recently refurbished with brand new American made furnishings. Virgin Creek Lodge can accommodate 2 people sleeping on a queen sized platform bed in the bedroom; and 2 people sleeping on the American Leather queen sized Temper-Pedic sleeper sofa in the living room. The kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with breakfast items such as coffee, teas, juices, and condiments. This unit includes a new Samsung 48' television entertainment center programmed for DVDs, VHS, and Blue Ray discs. The Sundance hot tub and TV are both Blue Tooth accessible. There is a washer/dryer available in this unit. The full bath contains a jetted bathtub.

The owners live on an adjoining parcel and share the driveway…they are always available.

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.

Wonderful, secluded spot

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

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.

Peaceful and private

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Right away we felt at home! The setting is beautiful, the layout perfect, and we had everything we needed. The kitchen is set up for cooking and eating, which we appreciated: dishes, utensils, pots/pans and oils/spices/basics. The owners were available and accommodating, but not overbearing. We highly recommend!

Beautiful spot. Quiet and very private. The hot tub was great! A short hike to a neat little waterfall. Highly recommend this place.

Romantic getaway with a private balcony and hot tub!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We stayed at this romantic getaway for our wedding weekend. This was a perfect place to decompress from the day and night. It was very clean and received flowers as an added bonus! We listened to the trickle of Virgin creek at night and enjoyed the music from the hot tub! There were no loud neighbors, very quiet and peaceful. We would definitely recommend this place to our friends and family.

The property was exactly as it was represented. It was very clean, and very well located.

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

From the conversations prior to the booking, all the way through our stay, Patti and Kevin were wonderful to work with. The property was very well represented, and was even better in person. We loved the amenities, the privacy, and the special touches. The flowers in the vase upon arrival were so inviting, and the food staples and accessories provided were more than we could have hoped for. We stayed 11 nights for our honeymoon, and were able to travel from there to many locations. If we ever make it back to Alaska, we hope to stay there again.

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.
