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 space

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.

Guest access

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.

Located within walking distance to Girdwood. Great hiking and other activities in walking and easy driving distance. Accommodations are basic and functional. Bed is comfy. Perfect place to lay your head at night and get outside to explore in the AM! Had great beer at the Girdwood Brewery, crepes at the crepe truck and the best breakfast burrito and polenta cake at Spoonline.

I had a wonderful stay! It is walking distance to Girwood Brewing, which is a fun spot. Very comfy bed. One night I ran into Alex after my long work day – 5 minutes later she was at the door with a freshly warmed chocolate molten cake. She also offered her bicycle to borrow. Thanks Alex!

Our stay in Alex's Treehouse was the perfect way to begin our AK vacation. Although Alex was out of town during our stay she clearly communicated with us re: her backup host. The Treehouse description perfectly matched our experience, including the quiet neighborhood and woodland setting. Alex's warning re steep steps was much appreciated. She and her "backup host" ensured the room was spotless and all amenities were nice quality. This is an easy, comfortable stay.

Alex's place is lovely. It's small and cozy but has everything you need, including a kitchenette, desk, etc. In addition, she provided many nice touches--coffee and tea, some welcome snacks, etc. Everything was clean and the place was very quiet.

I've lived in Alaska for 20 years and every day I am still stunned by the beauty. Girdwood is gorgeous and a great stepping off place for further travel around the State.
