Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday chalet in Girdwood - Carriage House - Kobuk's Stall

Craftsman Style Efficiency, Great Views, Across From The Double Musky Restaurant

Craftsman style 350 square foot timber frame efficiency cottage on the first floor, side wing of the Carriage House Chalet and includes: one bedroom with a king size bed, full bath with amenities, living room with a double leather futon sleeper, flat screen cable TV, WiFi, and kitchenette - including microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, complete dishware, sink and access to outdoor grill with side burner. Soak in a gorgeous timber frame gazebo covered hot tub nestled in the trees on the beautiful 2 acre estate.

The Chalet, an 1,860 square foot timber frame Barn, was originally built in 2005 to be used by owner Jake Thompsons as his wood shop, storage for the Carriage and harnesses and stalls for the two Percheron draft horses, Kobuk & Tecumseh “the boys” used in the Carriage business, with a hayloft above. In 2010 the boys were retired, and in the years following the renovations began, sanding all the beautiful Douglas Fir timbers and transforming a once rustic room to nicely appointed craftsman style luxury apartments. The Carriage House Chalet Efficiency is referred to as Kobuk's Stall, as it once was.

Your hosts are Rachel Hatcher and Jake Thompson. Jake grew up in Balboa (The Canal Zone)Panama and spent summers in Sabula Iowa, then later lived in both North and South Florida before coming to Alaska. Jake is a carpenter, specializing in building custom timber frame homes. Rachel grew up in Jupiter Florida, went to Florida Atlantic University, graduated with a bachelors of Finance, minor in accounting. worked in South Florida in public accounting for 5 years before coming to Alaska. We have lived in Alaska since 1994 and love the outdoors, travelling and meeting our guests from all over the world and sharing our knowledge of Alaska.

Rachel Hatcher purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Rachel Hatcher chose Alaska

The Carriage House Estate, acquired in 1996, includes two homes built by your host Jake Thompson on 2 landscaped and wooded acres along California Creek, with great views of the surrounding mountains and forest. The main home/lodge, a 3,400 square foot custom timber frame with massive beams, river rock fireplace and beautiful craftsmanship throughout, has operated as a Bed & Breakfast since 1999. The Chalet, an 1,860 square foot timber frame Barn, originally built in 2005 to be used by owner Jake Thompson as his wood shop and stalls for the two Percheron draft horses, Kobuk & Tecumseh “the boys” used in the Carriage business, with a hayloft above. In 2010 one of the boys was lost due to health issues and the other was retired. The years following the renovations began, sanding all the beautiful Douglas Fir timbers and enclosing the stall areas. The transformation was amazing and the 3 new private units are all nicely appointed craftsman style luxury.

What makes this chalet unique

The Carriage House Chalet is nested in the spruce and hemlock trees on 2 acres, along California Creek with great views of Alyeska and Max's mountain. Located on the edge of the Girdwood townsquare, within easy walking distance to many restaurants (directly across from the Double Musky Restaurant), and shops and only 1 mile to Alyeska Ski Resort. Numerous trails can be accessed right out the door in the Chugach State and National Forests that surround this property.

Clean and quaint!

  • 4 of 5

The room was perfect for my husband and I. This place is right across from the Double Musky, which happened to be closed while we were there. Just as well, we utilized the kitchenette, had wine and snacks in the room and were able to enjoy the hot tub without distraction! There are great walking/hiking trails nearby and we enjoyed a terrific breakfast at Jack Sprat in the morning. Thank you for a simple, no fuss weekend getaway. Owners were easy to work with and friendly!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The Kobuk room and its amenities exceeded our expectations. We normally stay at the hotel but never again. The room was clean and comfortable and roomier than we expected. Hot tub was the perfect temperature and slippers and towels were all provided...we'll be back!!

Great stay in a great place!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Girdwood several times. The Carriage house is now our favorite place. Very modern, attractive, and well done. The apartment is roomy and clean and comfortable. The owners are the best. Can't beat the location. Hope to be back soon.

Nice efficiency

  • 5 of 5

This efficiency was well updated and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The pullout sofa is small, but good for one person. The hot tub was a welcomed feature after spending the day in the snow. The location was very convenient for dinner at Double Musky and an easy drive to Alyeska or anywhere else in Girdwood. We would gladly stay here again, it is appropriately priced for the region.
