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

We stayed here one night while driving through this area. The view from the cabin was beautiful and the inside was nice too. We stayed in one of the larger cabins and we wish we could have stayed longer. Two beds, a pull out couch in the living area, a small kitchen and a bathroom. The entire area is beautiful!... More

It was our R&R stopover for two nights enroute to Dawson City and what a good move it was too. A first class stay in a log cabin that left us both chilled and refreshed for our onward journey. We had pre-book the smaller of the two grades of cabins and it was just fine. Luxury it ain't, but its... More

Stayed here one night in July 2014. Absolutely wonderful cabin - clean, modern, and very comfortable. Shared the bathroom which was very warm and clean. The mountain scenery from the cabin is absolutely amazing. We arrived late at night, and left early for ice climbing. Wish we could have spent more time here as it was so peaceful and beautiful.

We have stayed here over the years and Zach Steer and his wife have done an amazing turnaround on the place both physically and culturally. They provide very nice cabins and a more affordable bunkhouse option with shared bath that has come light years from the early days when we first stayed there 14 or so years ago on our... More

Had a nice lunch after visiting the nearby Matanuska Glacier. Restaurant was warm and inviting and staff was extremely friendly. Food was also very good including the chili, reindeer sausage, soup and burrito. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area or even just passing through!

We are glad you enjoyed our food. We keep the freshest ingredients on hand and our soups and chili are made from scratch; we hope that restaurant guests can taste the difference. Enjoy the rest of Alaska! More
