Additional Location Information
The Alta House Village is located in Girdwood, Alaska, which is about 45 minutes south of Anchorage along the scenic Seward Highway. Make sure you look out for Dall sheep, beluga whales and other wildlife while driving along the Turnagain Arm and Chugach Mountains. It is the perfect base for daytrips around the state, since it is located near Alaskaâ€™s most cosmopolitan city, Anchorage, a short drive to world-class fishing, and a flightseeing trip to some of the most awe-inspiring scenery on the planet. The Village Cabin is a block away from the Alyeska Resort, shops, restaurants and a variety of activities. Girdwood is located in North Americaâ€™s northern most rainforest, and is home to the historic Crow Creek Gold Mine, remnants from the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake, an Alaska Railroad stop, the Alyeska Tramway and a community of individuals waiting to show you your next adventure.

A Bed for One Night - OK
We stayed in the alta House (cabin on the left side of photo) in late august of 2012. We wanted to stay near Girdwood on our way from anchorage to Seward - to do some gold panning in the area. (However, it was cold and rainy and we ended up just driving to the panning area to have a look-see, nothing more.)
We didn't have advance reservations, so we were glad to get into the alta House - it fit our needs perfectly - just for one night's stay. Reasonable rates, as compared to other properties. But the cabin was dark inside and it could use some updating. I hope they fixed the rotting wood areas on the deck which could prove to be a safety issue. It's in a more residential area and was quiet. The photo looks better than it does (at least as I remember it, but it could have been the dreary weather.)
The girl working the office was very friendly and helpful.

Cool place, a bit small for 2 people
I love the idea and even the bears did too. Had a black bear come right up to the back of the cabin one day as it was strolling about the forests of Girdwood. The cabin would be awesome if it were bigger. Or if it were a lot cheaper for what you get.
Awesomeness at the alta house!
This cabin was super awesome! It was very clean, organized, cute and comfy. Me and my boyfriend and three friends stayed at the cabin fot a mini bday celebration and we had a blast. We went snowboarding all day and came back to the cabin. We hung out in front of the fire place to warm up an listened to our iPhones through the stereo. The cabin is a block away from the sitzmark so we walked down and listened to a band. It was an amazing weekend!!
One of the best rentals in town-clean, comfortable, and convenie
We stayed in the "Village Chalet". It was a great space for 4 people! We didn't even want to leave the living room; The gas fireplace was so inviting. The kitchen was larger than my own, and it was nice to have a dining room table for meals. We have rented may different places in Girdwood over the years, and this one was one of the best kept with a noticeably recent remodel. Location was good, parking was ample, and booking was convenient. The icing on the cake was an iPod cable hooked to the stereo so we could listed to our own music...not something you think about packing!
Next time we have a larger group we will rent out the whole Village!

Perfect weekend rental.
An attentive and helpful staff was just the first step in a great weekend. The location was just an easy walk to the mountain. The cabin was cozy and extremely clean. The gas fireplace kept us toasty all night. All in all a perfect weekend getaway.
