The stairs take you up through hemlock and Sitka spruce trees into a quiet, cozy studio apartment. There is a private bath with a glass shower and a small kitchen area with fridge, toaster, coffee pot, microwave and a deep stainless sink.
The studio is semi attached to the house with a private entrance. Pull into the driveway and make your way up the stairs (lots of stairs) to a small deck. There are 2 deck chairs and a wall garden with edible flowers and herbs. Inside you'll find a full sized bed with a new mattress, clothes storage, table and chairs. We have wifi.
The studio is west facing and it's nice to sit on the deck and watch the sun set behind Penguin Ridge.
Interaction with guests
We've lived in the Girdwood valley for 20 years and can help point you in the direction of great hikes, excellent tour operators and good food.
I do allow children (I even have one!) BUT the steps up to the apartment are STEEP. Please email me with questions. Although the studio is very private, it is attached to our house and we are early to bed early to rise. If you seek a party, or plan on coming in super late and drunk, this is not your spot. If you're seeking a clean, quiet, cozy spot to land for a bit, this may be perfect for you.
