About the property

Spacious getaway for family and friends in the heart of Girdwood

Experience a slice of Alaska at the Mountain View Guest House! Relax in the 6 person outdoor hot tub after a day of skiing, or play billiards after dinner in this lovely 4 bedroom, 3 full bath home located in beautiful Girdwood, Alaska. This custom home has all the amenities necessary for a comfortable visit, suitable for up to 10 guests. (Two of the bedrooms have a queen AND a twin, in order to suit your group’s desired bedding configuration. There is an extra charge of $25 per person per night for each extra person above the ten person occupancy for this house. Contact us for rates for groups of up to twelve). If you have a special event in mind, we may be able to accommodate you; special fees and/or deposits may apply.

Enjoy the great room with the granite stone floor, radiant floor heating, and 20 foot vaulted ceiling with 12 foot windows facing Mt. Alyeska. The open floor plan of the living room and kitchen invites guests to linger around the gas fireplace, enjoy a meal around the large dining room table, or watch a DVD on the large, flat screen TV. You can even catch up on your email with high speed WiFi. The master bedroom has a fireplace, private bathroom with walk in shower and Jacuzzi tub. The four bedrooms are located upstairs, along with an open loft that has a futon sofa/bed. There is another full bathroom and laundry room with washer, dryer and folding area upstairs.

From this home that is centrally located with a view of Mt. Alyeska, you can venture out to ski (downhill and cross-country or helicopter skiing), hike, pick blueberries, shop, bike, fish, dine at fine restaurants, romp in the community built playground, go flightseeing, and more.

For those frosty mornings, you can park your car, bikes or skis in the heated 2 car garage. Children are welcome, making this home a welcoming spot for family and friends. Under new ownership but with the same manager, the Mountain View Guest House continues to be a wonderful vacation get away.

About S.G.

We have lived in Alaska for the past 23 years and fell in love with Girdwood the first time we visited this beautiful, scenic town many years ago. We lived in Germany for 3 years and Girdwood brings back wonderful memories of southern Germany. Spending time in Girdwood is a great way to renew our love of the mountains, and we thoroughly enjoy hiking and fishing in the summer, and skiing in the winter. We love our home in Girdwood so much and hope you will enjoy it too!

S.G. purchased this house in 2015

Why S.G. chose Girdwood

We instantly fell in love with this scenic town of 2,000 people on the edge of the Chugach Mountains with its spectacular outdoor activity options including hiking, skiing, fishing, and more.

What makes this house unique

Whether you like to hike in the summer or ski in the winter, or simply relax in a small mountain town, our home in Girdwood will surely enhance your visit!

Spacious well appointed home with full view of the mountains

  • 5 of 5

This home accommodated our family of 8 perfectly. The property manager is very helpful and was very quick in providing an extra fan when Girdwood decided to hit 88 degrees! (there is no air conditioning in most home in Girdwood). It has a large window in the family room that has a full view of the mountains. The location is very convenient to everything and on a dead end street so there is not traffic speak of. The kitchen is very well appointed and there are many extra's such as extra towels, spices, bug spray, spare fridge in the garage, soap, shampoo, laundry soap.

The pool table is a nice extra for an extra activity. There are two full bathrooms on the second floor (one of which is the master bathroom) so really there is one bathroom on the second floor for 3 other bedrooms. The first floor does have another full bathroom which helps to supplement the one upstairs.

This property is on a street with about 10 or so newish homes and is in a clearing near all the wooded homes-there really aren't any trees to speak of on the property, but this grants the view to the mountains that you would not have otherwise.

There are 2 large dogs next door that freely come onto the property whenever you walk outside, so that may be daunting to some people or little kids (they seem very friendly though). The family room also looks directly into the neighbors backyard, so an optional shade on that main window would be helpful.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

A very nice home in a quiet neighborhood in Girdwood. It accommodated 7 adults easily and had everything we needed and more. The hot tub and pool table were fun extras. We stayed in Girdwood after a wedding at Alyeska Resort. We enjoyed the hand tram hike, the wildlife refuge center and drive down to Seward for an ocean kayak. I highly recommend this home!
