About Scott Hauser

Came up to visit Alaska in 1998 and have never left. There is a lifetime of adventures just 15 min out my door. I'm a wilderness guide in the summers and a professional dad the rest of the time.

Scott Hauser purchased this condo in 2012

Why Scott Hauser chose Alaska

My family loves spending time in Girdwood. We love to hike, packraft, and ski. Girdwood has easy access to all the outdoor activities my family likes to do.

What makes this condo unique

We love the access to the lifts, just a short 5 min walk and you are at the base of Mt. Alyeska!

Perfect location for exploring

Scott's condo is a perfect location for exploring Alaska. We really appreciated the very well stocked kitchen - it was great.

good price for a good location

  • 5 of 5

Had everything you would need in the house. Most importantly - had a paperback book on the making of Terminator 2 that makes Moby Dick look like the National Enquirer.

Perfect Turnagain Arm "base-camp" for adventure

  • 5 of 5

Excellent condo at the base of lovely ski resort. (Our summer visit didn't have snow on the hills, but plenty of music, hiking and mountain biking happening on the mountain).

Great amenities in condo, especially for families with young kids.

We'll appointed AV / entertainment system. Well stocked kitchen. Nice updates to kitchen and bath.

No wifi as mentioned, however, lots of reasons to visit grand lodge and two block away - walkable wine shop, bakery, restaurant and lounge.

Base--camp close to Portage Glacier, Crow Creek Mine and Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.

Perfect stepping off point for day trips to Seward, Exit Glacier, and Whitaker.

Scott is super responsive. We had needs for batteries to be replaced, and he was on-site quickly, fixing the trouble and turning us on to additional hikes to consider.

Girdwood is a cool town (Check out yet Merc. - it has to be the smallest Safeway's grocery in the entire system!) and thanks to this year-round gem of a condo, we'll be back for more Alaska adventures!

Awesome Experience!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, little dog, and I had a great stay at this one bedroom condo. It was clean, updated, and very cozy. Scott, the owner, was very helpful when I inquired about specifics of the Girdwood area, writing me a detailed personal response to my interests in snowshoeing and hiking in the area.

You won't be disappointed in your stay here!

Great Location; unfortunate weather

  • 5 of 5

Was going to spend a weekend in Girdwood for some skiing but unfortunately mother nature had other plans.

The apartment was an amazing location compared to the lifts as well as being clean/cozy. When we go back to Girdwood again we would definitely stay on the property again.
