What a great place to stay. Not only did this house meet our needs but it’s location is perfect for seeing Alaska small town and out in the woods style. The red couch and benches gave all of us room to lounge and the fireplace was cozy after our mountain hikes/rafting trips. There is a donation only Bussing service to take you many places around Girdwood if you come by train. Crow Creek Mine, glacier/nature trail parks, and an animal conservation center are just a few activities close to this amazing house.
We were a family of 6 adults and fit nicely in the space of this cabin. The kitchen held enough space for groceries to feed us for a week and the kitchen was well stocked in everything but glasses (5) and bowls (3). We got creative and made it work.
Now as to the shower complaints that have been discussed in past reviews. FYI- this cabin has a tankless/on demand water heater. All 6 of us easily figured out how to use this heater. You literally need to turn it on, count to 15, test the water, adjust the knob, count to 15 again, test water, doing this until you have the temp you want. We didn’t need to move it but one time. Once you have it set to the right temp- take note as to where the arrow is and you can turn it off and on at the same place. We had our water temp set for the week.
We are keeping this cabin on our favorite list because we will be coming back!

Went for a birthday trip and stayed two nights here. The pictures don’t do the size of the home justice. Pretty spacious and roomy. Didn’t plan on staying in the house for a long time during the day but ended up doing the opposite the first day we were there and spent the first day inside cause of tiredness from our flight. Didn’t mind since the home was so comfy! Girdwood is a small town but this house is located perfectly in the town we were able to walk to everywhere! We just couldn’t stop talking about how close the house was to things. We are planning a return to Alaska and hope to stay here again!

The house was perfect for two people and had almost everything we needed. The only thing wrong—AND IT’S A BIG ONE—Is that the shower was completely unusable. Regardless of how much time we waited, or what time of day we were in it, we could never get a medium temperature. It was either scalding hot or freezing cold. We had to resort to sponge baths and washing our hair in the kitchen sink. Not ideal for an eight day stay! Otherwise, we LOVED the cabin and the location, but the shower problem will prevent us from staying there again.
Manager response:
Hi, thank you for your review. We're sorry for any issues you encountered with the water during your stay. The local manager has inspected the water temperature and shower, and it is in working order. There is an instruction card on how to operate the hot water at the home, and it takes about 20 seconds to adjust to the selected temperature. The local manager is looking into replacing the shower knob so that it is more comprehensive, but that will not change the temperature register time. We appreciate your feedback and hope to host you again soon!

Comfy, roomy cabin with the basics. Nothing extravagant. Awesome location! Walk right over to the lifts and day lodge. Great communication - quick responses.

This is the perfect spot for a ski trip, especially with multiple kids. You can see the daylodge from the window & it is across the street from the Powder Hound. It’s well equipped, clean and comfortable. The TV is a smart TV so you can log into apps for streaming. The gas fireplace is great for helping dry gear. The home has a lot of character & we enjoyed it!

I stayed at the cedar chalet with my husband and two other couples. It slept all of us comfortable and could have easily accommodated a few more people, as long as you’re ok with sharing one bathroom. The chalet is beautiful (the pictures don’t do it justice!), and everything was perfectly clean. The location in Girdwood can’t be beat - walk to the slopes, the Sitz, Jack Sprat, The Bake Shop... We can’t wait to stay again!
