We only spent one night at The Girdwood Guest House, but we really enjoyed it. There was a full kitchen, a king bed, and a twin futon for our 14 year old son. There are great places/paths on which to get in an early morning jog in Girdwood. Very quiet neighborhood....Beautiful area....my husband saw a moose and a calf in... More

This is my 2nd time staying at this charming little B&B. The smell of Judy's fresh home baked bread and delicious jam greet you upon check in. Clean, comfy, and cozy with all the comforts of home. Nestled within the heart of Girdwood, within walking distance to the Mt. Alyeska slopes, shopping and restuarants. Can't wait to visit again.

My family stayed in Girdwood Guest House for 2 nights. We found it is an ideal place for us to take Sea kayaking day tour in Whittier. The fully furnished room is beautiful and quiet and clean, with very good free WiFi. Judy the owner is very nice and help us to contact the tour provider.

We only stayed one night at this cute apartment style B&B. Fresh loaf of bread provided by the owner along with extra food items in fridge. The accommodations were very comfortable and we enjoyed being able to make a homemade meal for a change. When we were checking in however, we were asked if we needed to do any laundry.... More

My husband & I stayed here for two days. The guesthouse was furnished with everything we needed. Our hostess was Judy & she was very accommodating - baking us a loaf of fresh bread with a jar of homemade rhubarb jam....it was delicious!

This was actually a one bedroom, fully equipped apartment. I could live here. The bed was very comfortable and the fridge well stocked with breakfast items. I was a bit baffled that guests were expected to strip the beds.

Thank you for sharing your kind words about your stay. It is helpful to me to know that stripping the beds was not something you expected to do. I received a prior comment about this so have not asked guests to strip the beds upon departure.since the beginning of July this year. More

I cannot think of a single bad thing to say about this place. There was plenty of room, bathroom was nice, and the kitchen was fully equipped. It really did feel like a home away from home.
