Peaceful Girdwood Studio with Large Deck and Private Hot Tub!

This rustic Alaskan studio sits at the edge of Girdwood, surrounded by the wilderness in a peaceful and private neighborhood. This studio cabin has limited modern updates including WiFi, a gas fireplace, and a washer/dryer but still maintains the original quaint and authentic feel of the early settlement days before the ski resorts and tourism was introduced to the area. This retreat features a large deck with a built-in hot tub under the large spruce trees dotting the property. This cozy space is perfect for those seeking for a glimpse of Alaskan rural life while being conveniently located to modern amenities. Alyeska Resort is a short drive away where you will have access to ski slopes, hiking, and a scenic tram ride to the top of the surrounding mountain peaks.

What's nearby:
Even though this home will be private and quiet, you'll still be right by town. Girdwood has a great selection of shops and restaurants including a brewery and bake shop. Alyeska Resort is also only a short drive away where you will have access to ski slopes and a scenic lift ride.

Things to know:
Full kitchen (no dishwasher)
The double bed can only be accessed via a ladder and is open to the living area and bunk beds.
The home's water is sourced from a well. This can cause lower water pressure and a slight tint to the water color.
A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

Neat little cabin. Very comfortable bed. Would give it 5 stars but the dishes were a little scarce and the pans are no longer nonstick.
Steven J. Aug 2021
Nice cozy place but missing a few amenities like having only one chair on the deck and very poor lighting over main area

Loved our stay at Fort Lindy! This cute cabin is comfortable and cozy.

Cute cabin close to Girdwood. Very cozy but had everything you need. Not much privacy from neighboring cabins and grounds need some work.

Let me start by saying this house is a really cool space. The design makes for a unique stay. I rated only 4 stars because the water pressure in the house was terrible. The shower was literally a trickle and it took 8 minutes before warm water started coming out (I timed it). Also the Roku wasn't functioning for the TV. Other than those things, I loved the living room, kitchen, and bedroom. The hot tub was awesome too.

Assuming the water pressure and TV get fixed, this is no doubt a 5 star house to stay in.
Manager response:
Tyler, Thank you for your stay with us and for sharing your experience with others. We are pleased to read that you liked the home layout and the amenities offered, and we appreciate you bringing these maintenance items to our attention. We are happy to report the Roku has been reconnected, and the water pressure and temperature, which are supplied by a water well, are working as expected. We look forward to welcoming you back during your next stay in the area!

Absolutely adorable cabin. Perfect for a couple or for a small family. Its tiny charm makes me feel very cozy and tucked away while being ideally located for big adventures. Coming back after a big day in the mountains and soaking in the hot tub is exactly what I need to rest and recover for the next day's adventure. Kitchen is well stocked and I love the gas stove. Overall it's a pretty sweet set up.

Was in serious need of a trip out of town and it couldn’t have been better. The whole place just feels cozy and the hot tub was a great added bonus

Fort Lindy was perfect for us as a couple. The ladder to the loft was not for the faint of heart, but added to the charm. The location was great for sightseeing in Girdwood, Anchorage, and Seward.
Rosalisa A. Aug 2020
We loved how cozy this cabin is, just enough for 2 people or if you have children, they have a bunk bed downstairs. We had an amazing and relaxing time.

Quiet quirky cabin in the woods. Quiet place to relax and get away. Hot tub helped relax.
Ashley B. May 2020
The perfect little cabin with all the amenities you need! The deck and hot tub area was great and beds were very comfortable!
They also were very quick to resolve an issue with had with the keys!
The fence and backyard area could use a little cosmetic work, but it didn’t effect our stay at all!

The picture shown above is NOT representative. There is not one comfortable place to sit/rest. The couch is actually broken. There are dangerous holes in the floor. The beds are lumpy and cramp inducing. There are better places to stay in Girdwood.
Manager response:
Hi Robert, we are so sorry that you were unhappy with your rental. The owner has taken your review to heart and has purchased an all-new sleeper sofa for this unit to ensure future guests do not run into the same issue. Thank you for your review and we hope you'll give us another chance to impress you in the future!

It's quiet and private. Well equipped but "Alaskan Funky" in a very pleasant way. It's too far from the slopes to walk to skiing, but the quietness of the neighborhood makes up for that. I would recommend for a couple with two kids - four adults might be a stretch. The hot tub is small and pretty shallow, but very private. For the price, a great find.

This is our second time visiting the Lundy cabin! We love it! It has everything you would need for the perfect getaway! The neighbors can get a little noisy and you can hear them driving up and down the road pretty late at night but other than that it is amazing! I would recommend it to anyone.

This quaint little cottage what exactly what we needed for our get away from “life” if you will. Nestled in the woods with fog to add an extra layer of comfort while sitting in the hot tub!
alee p. Oct 2019
This cabin was very peaceful, shaded by trees with a spacious deck. Cute kitchen accessories and very clean.
Angela G. Sep 2019
The home was clean with a comfortable bed upstairs, loved the hot tub. The outside looks a bit rough with the fence falling down. The blender could use a deep clean. Overall we really enjoyed it.
Kristine D. Jul 2019
This cabin was super cute!! Loved the kitchen and the bed in the loft was super comfy. Also, it's located in a great location, just minutes from town and hiking trails.
Jared T. Jul 2019
We enjoyed our stay here. Checkin was simple, the area very enjoyable and the house was convenient. Even during a very hot stretch, the trees provided shade and with the windows open in the loft sleeping was comfortable. Definitely bring a sleep mask if staying during the summer as there are no window shades/blinds. We had ours and this had no problem.

Absolutely wonderful. This cabin is cozy, very clean (spotless!) and stocked with essentials for cooking. The hot tub and large deck are great for relaxing after a long day. It's located in a nice residential area - very quiet and private. Good wifi, off-street parking and comfortable beds. The bathroom is a bit tight BUT that means you have the luxury of a washer/dryer on vacation!! Just a note: the stairs going to the loft are steep and slick, so this rental may not be the best option for anyone who has a tough time moving around. Although the bunk bed's bottom bunk is easy to get in and out of! I will most definitely be back. And I'm looking forward to it!

We had a great time in Girdwood & this cabin was a perfect addition! The hot tub was the best and kitchen had what we needed!! It would be a tight fit for 6 people...perfect for 2 or 4 (if 2 were kiddos). The VaCasa folks were super responsive when we had an issue with the internet (fixed in just a few hours). Thanks!!
