Girdwood is a small, but bustling area with a lot of vacation rental options of various sizes, amenities, and prices. The Forest House seemed perfect for our family of four (two adult boys) with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a hot tub at a walkable distance to the town center (and brewery). We were not disappointed. This house is huge and very comfortable with surprises like a Bose Bluetooth speaker (very nice), new washer and dryer, and a really private back deck adjacent to the hot tub. The house is in a neighborhood, but the trees and placement of the homes provide great privacy.
The Forest House loses a star due to the fact that some of the interior is really dated. This is especially true in the kitchen, where the countertops are wood and the stove/oven appears to be 30 years old. There is a nice, modern dishwasher, which was another pleasant surprise.
We would definitely stay here again, but a few upgrades will make this a 5-star rental!
