We spent one night at SML in June 2015. The last night of a two week Alaska vacation for our family of four as we headed back to Anchorage. Glad we stopped here. We stayed in Cabin #3 and it was wonderful. Large and well constructed, it easily accommodated the four of us. It was immaculate as was the entire... More

SML is the kind of road house you always wish for but rarely find. Great stop between McCarthy or Chitina, and Anchorage/MatSu Valley. Menus were VERY good, meals delivered as promised, there is ample parking, cabins are simple but spotless (but do bring your own blow dryer), hospitality was above average for a road house. There were even hiking trails... More

Stayed in one of the large cabins for two nights my companion and two grandchildren. Enjoyed sitting on the porch looking at the view. Kitchen well stocked. Beds were comfortable. Plenty of room for the four of us. Enjoyed the hiking trails around the lodge.

The views were stunning from our porch. It was so nice to be in the middle of nowhere. Peace and quiet is priceless. The restaurant has a great menu and all our meals were outstanding. Our cabin was very comfortable, clean and good beds, I highly recommend staying here at some point at some point during an Alaskan visit.

We had a great one day stay over at the Sheep Mountain Lodge in one of their RV spots. Even though the place was not officially open, the hosts allowed us to stay for one night. The location is great and the Lodge has a nice trail system just behind the premises, which can keep you busy for at least... More

The cabins are really quiet and relaxing the views of the mountains and goats are amazing. Then you have the glacier on the other side, what more can you ask for!!! The also have a nice restaurant inside and a big mounted moose. I would definitely return.

Sheep Mountain Lodge was built in 1946 to accommodate travelers along the Glenn Highway. It was originally a two-story log structure with 13 rooms. Zack and Anjanette Steer, both lifelong Alaskans, own Sheep Mountain Lodge. Zack has participated in the Iditarod and Yukon Quest. Parking was not directly in front of our cabin and we felt we had to partially... More

Thank you for your thorough review. Cabin 8 is our smallest most cozy cabin, perfect for a couple who wants to be close to their vehicle. We noted the need for a new mattress and blackout shade and they were installed/upgraded this fall. More

Following a beautiful and scenic drive from Wrangell St Elias it was lovely to spend a night in such a beautiful location. Very comfortable individual cabin which was well equipped . The dinner and breakfast menus gave reasonable choice and were good value. Plenty of walking from the lodges.

Nice clean place with individual cabins for $129 and up. We were there for the end of the season, and I would go back. An especially nice place if you like hiking as there are many local trails of all levels of difficulty. Owners operate a restaurant on-site that offers a variety of locally grown and sustainable options. Worth returning... More

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 are glad you enjoyed your stay. Some days we forget to look up from our work and enjoy the mountains- your adjectives describing the scenery are true and thanks for keeping it in perspective for us and offering a glimpse for future visitors. More
