The ride in is an adventure, then comes the "Wow" on arrival at the lodge. Stunning views, homely lodge and wonderful hosts. It is impossible not to get infected by their passion for this special place and for wanting to share it. Claude took us out each day for different experiences and he has a wealth of knowledge. You certainly... More

A wonderful winter escape in a stunning location. The hosts are fantastic and they have a lovely team that go out of their way to ensure you have an enjoyable stay. If you love the outdoors this is a great base for exploring the back country off the Denali Highway. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. We had... More

This past weekend was my first visit to Alpine Creek Lodge and it won't be my last. From the moment we arrived, the "team" of Claude, Jennifer, Bob, Ania, and Chrissy made our group of friends feel very welcome. This team worked well together--supporting each other and their guests superbly! After traveling the 64 miles from Cantwell on a snow... More

I got to enjoy the Trapper Package at Alpine Creek Lodge during opening season. I didn't even expect to catch anything and was only looking to learn the logistics of setting traps and experience Alaska for the first time. I was not disappointed at all. The knowledge I gained, and the respect that the folks at Alpine Creek Lodge have... More

That is the question you'll be constantly asking yourself during your stay at the family run Alpine Creek Lodge. The husband and wife team of Claude and Jennifer Bondy - ably supported by their son Bob and kitchen demon Chrissy - immediately make you feel at home with their warmth and personal touch. They literally do go the extra mile... More

we stayed here as we were driving on the denali highway, and it just happened to be first day of caribou hunting. Our cabin was large,2-3 beds, they started the fire in the fireplace for us. Dinner is served in the main lodge with the other guests so it is fun and friendly. One of the staff took me on... More

This rustic lodge located on the Denali Highway was one of our favorite places we stayed. The hosts were very welcoming and the atmosphere was very relaxed. This was true Alaska, not the cruise ship company's version of it. Be sure to take the ATV tour and see a working gold mine!

My brother and I visited the lodge for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute. I even had a massage in a tent at 9 at night with the sun still up! Amazing! Food is included and is family style. You can eat any time you get in and that can vary widely because you are having fun touring the area... More

I found the Alpine Creek lodge while researching places to stay and things to do for our trip to Alaska last year. I have wanted to visit for as long as I can remember so I did have some notion of what I was hoping to find and dreaming of doing- getting out into "nowhere" Alaska and experiencing the wild...

My family recently stayed at this lodge, and while we enjoyed many aspects of the stay, we have learned we are probably not the type of family that prefers to stay at a lodge. The owners did a great job answering my inquiries and questions both prior to and after we booked our reservations. The lodge was just as it... More

Thanks Carol for the review! We enjoyed having you, your husband and the kids stay with us in May!! Bob enjoyed exploring and playing with the kids while you all were here for a couple nights. The tour was great fun and we was great to see lots of critters. Sorry we didn't get to find fish and gold. It... More
