Besides the resort hotel, there are plenty of condos and B&Bs in town. Alyeska Accommodations, 203 Olympic Mountain Loop (; tel. 888/783-2001 or 907/783-2000), offers rooms, condos, cabins, and luxurious houses.

Hidden Creek Bed & Breakfast (; tel. 907/783-5557) is a beautiful craftsman-style inn built among huge spruce and hemlock trees by a pair of outgoing corporate dropouts, Ron and Michelle Tenny, who came to Alaska on vacation and fell in love with Girdwood. Their warmth and hospitality are exceptional. Each of the three well-equipped rooms is large, stylish, and finely crafted in its own way, and Michelle, a culinary school graduate, creates elaborate full breakfasts. Summer rates are $175 to $225, winter $145 to $195.
