We drove from Anchorage to overmight in the Lodge. Its setting is almost surreally magnificent, against a jaw droppingly specular mountain backdrop. We had been told that the accommodation (in individual log cabins) would be simple - but it was lovely. A refreshing antidote to the sterile montony of chain hotels. The room was clean and spacious, firm comfortable bed,... More

We stayed in deluxe cabin number 2 for 2 nights to break the journey from Denail to Wrangell St Elias National Park. Check in was quick & friendly, the cabin was a good size, warm, clean & well equipped. We had a full size cooker, fridge & well stocked kitchen. Bathroom is small but adequate, beds comfy. Main lodge has... More

Our cabin was clean but you need to bring your own pillow, they are old and very thin. I liked the fact that they had maintained trails around the hotel with maps. Great hiking, the restaurant was tasty.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to make it 5 stars the next time you visit. We definitely needed some new pillows in a few of the cabins - they have been replaced, we appreciate your feedback. You picked a good time to enjoy the trails- the fall colors right now are unbeatable. More

The independent traveler in Alaska, whether a state resident or visitor can not do better than Sheep Mountain Lodge. Just a few hours' drive from Anchorage, along a glorious scenic highway, the lodge is first-class all the way. I stayed in a premier cabin, but the entire property is maintained at the highest levels for comfort and convenience. The hiking... More

We stayed in Premier Cabin #3 and really enjoyed our stay. The views were beautiful, and the hiking trails around the property were nice. There is not much around Sheep Mountain Lodge, but the restaurant there has good food at good prices. Service was good, and friendly staff. Internet and cell phone reception not good - we had to drive... More

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The lodge and cabins are nestled between two mountain ranges so the cell phone service is poor in the cabins. Many guests find better service closer to the highway. We are working on boosting the signal for next season. We hope to see you some day again soon. More

We've eaten at SML 3 times, and stayed there twice now, and as long as we continue to visit Alaska, we'll find a reason to stop here when in the area. Many folks use this as a quick stopover when travelling from Anchorage to points east (or vice versa), but there is plenty to do in the area to spend... More

We are glad you make this a regular stop on your visits to Alaska. We do have some of the best food west of the Copper River. The Premier cabins have become a favorite for families and couples alike, we are happy you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again next summer. More

They do everything right. Everything. From comfortable lodging to outstanding food and stunning panoramas, Sheep Mountain Lodge is so close to perfect that it has to be experienced to be understood. Our cabin (#4) was modern, tastefully furnished, well lighted and had a fully equipped kitchen. The beds were new and perfectly comfortable to our liking. Excellent pillows (best by... More

We are glad you enjoyed your stay, it is our goal to make each and every customer feel welcome. Our sourdough pancakes are truly SOUR and not for everyone. But locals love them with blueberries and slathered in pure maple syrup- an Alaskan tradition. Tip - if you love sourdough, ask to purchase a cup of starter at the lodge.... More

We were en route from Anchorage to Wrangell St Elias Park and the Sheep Mountain Lodge was the perfect stopover for us. Our cabin was spacious and very well equipped, with great views. The food was really good and the service both prompt and attentive. They also served the best coffee east of Anchorage. Highly recommend.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay in one of our Premier cabins. The only complaint we get is that guests wish they would or could stay longer. Hope to see you again soon. More

This is a cozy little stop along the highway with individual cabins that are private, quiet, comfortable and cozy with a beautiful view all around. It includes a nice little restuarant and a pleasant and friendly staff. We drove in late one evening as the restuarant was closing and the girl who helped us was so kind. We just wanted... More

Coming all the way from Australia we found ourselves in an alien landscape. Snow covered mountains and a nearby glacier. But then there was Sheep Mountain Lodge with its log cabin cosiness, home cooked food and genuine friendliness. Nothing alien about this nor of Anjanette and her partner who have created a slice of Alaskan hospitality in such a remote... More
