Virgin Creek Lodge is a beautiful, peaceful retreat. The owners are wonderful people and left little touches in the cabin upon my arrival that made me feel welcome and special! I stayed at the lodge while I explored the Kenai Peninsula. It was a convenient spot to see many wonderful towns and attractions. My only negative is that I didn't stay longer!! I needed an extra day just to enjoy the lodge. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and hope to be back again soon.

“Absolutely Beautiful Place!”

The cabin was in excellent condition and up to date with technology such as a curve t.v. There isn't a shower but instead a Jacuzzi/bath tub but it was still nice overall. Beautiful views and the hot tub was relaxing. Just 2 minutes away within walking distance is the waterfall and river...so peaceful! Loved it!

We had an amazing weekend away at Virgin Creek Lodge. From the beautiful location in Girdwood to the lovely lodge it was a relaxing weekend all around. The lodge was very well kept and the hosts were very welcoming. I would recommend this stay to anyone looking to have a relaxing get away with a loved one. Cant wait for our next trip!

“Relaxing Weekend Getaway”
Reviewed 14 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

people found this review helpful

This place was really amazing and we loved it. I booked it on a whim and it ended up exceeding our expectations for a quiet anniversary trip.

It is a private / secluded structure, not a duplex so you're not sharing a wall with anyone. It's at the end of the road so you're also not looking into anyone's windows (vise-versa). There is a hot tub on the deck that overlooks the wilderness. Few things are better than soaking in a hot tube with a drink while it's lightly snowing. Probably my favorite part of the weekend.

The owners keep a very clean, homey, and wonderful rental. This is now my first pick for overnights in Girdwood.

If you're looking for a romantic / quiet place for a weekend, this is it.

We stayed for 5 days, 4 nights at Virgin Creek. The chalet looks larger in real life than in pictures. I loved the seclusion and location. We hiked down to the waterfall that is practically in the backyard. Loved the furnished kitchen and having a washer and dryer. That meant only packing half the clothes for a full week's vacation. We used Girdwood as a hub to explore Kenai Peninsula, Kenai Fjords National Park, Seward, Hope, Whittier, and the Turnagain Arm. There is a small grocery store just down the road for stocking up on rations. Patty made sure our stay was lovely. Even stocked the refrigerator with goodies. The Hot tub and whirlpool tub were just extras! This was truly a nice clean quite place to stay.

This little slice of heaven was clean and updated(inside and out), comfortable and very close to the Virgin Creek Trailhead. Also very close to Alyeska and any shopping that Girdwood offers.The sound of the waterfalls made the atmosphere very serene. The hot tub was such a nice respite from the daily work week. We enjoyed all the comforts of home and couldn't have wanted for anything. Kevin and Patty were very accommodating and, after showing us around and how to work the hot tub and TV, left us to enjoy the peaceful weekend. Price was very fair(not overpriced). I would definitely recommend this cabin for up to 4 people. Not for small children or small dogs. We will be back! :)
