vacation rental description

The Girdwood Suite Retreat has some very unique and special features: The house & cabins are located on 0.6 acres surrounded by old growth forest and is one of the largest parcels of land close to the base of the resort. The home was constructed in 2001 by EECC, one of the top custom home builders in Alaska. It is a 3000 square foot house designed to be open and comfortable. - It has one of the largest private outdoor decks(1000SQF) in Girdwood with a covered hot tub with a view of the Alyeska tram and the ski resort.

The features of the house include four bedrooms - 1 king, 4 queens and 1 single located in the walk-in master closet, full size front load washer/dryer and fully equipped kitchen.

In addition to the house, we have an 800 square foot Cabin with full kitchen, bathroom with shower, 2 full beds and a full click-clack futon.

The combination of the house and cabin make a total of 8 sleeping areas that accommodate 16 people (two per bed) comfortably.

Girdwood is the ideal base-camp for your Alaska vacation, centrally located to some of the best fishing in Alaska and only 20 miles north of Whittier and Portage, the launching point for glacier and marine tours and Prince William Sound. Your hosts, Bill and Sue Connell

traveler reviews for this girdwood lodge rental

Lauer wedding weekend

Review submitted: August 22, 2014   Date of arrival: August 14, 2014

We had 16 of us stay here for our son's wedding that took place at the Crow Creek Gold Mine (great venue). Sue and Bill were wonderful in answering any questions that arose. The house was clean and well maintained, fully equipped with all that was needed. Nobody felt cramped. The beds were comfortable. We're already planning a reunion with this property in mind. I would highly recommend this property to others.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, tourists without a car

Owners response: Thanks so much. We look forward to your next visit. See you soon.

As advertised

Review submitted: August 5, 2014   Date of arrival: July 31, 2014

Very nice house and walking distance to all what Girdwood has to offer. Took a group of 5 customers from Seattle and they enjoy the house and the central location. (To Whittier-20 minutes and Seward 1.5 hours-fishing trips) Would recommend this to anyone who is looking at the Girdwood area. (Business group or families)

Owners response: Thanks John, we look forward to your next visit.
