This place was just great. The hospitality of Claude and family was just over the top. We all felt very, very welcome there and they were happy to show us around. We did not want to leave! Even though it has been a poor winter for snow we found that in their area there was snow everywhere. Wonderful snowmachining. We... More

I had a really wonderful stay at Alpine Creek Lodge. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating during our time there. The homemade food was out of this world too! I will definitely visit again as I had a really great experience here.

The lodge is also the home of the Bondy family and we enjoyed our 2 night stay with them. They are friendly folks that welcomed us and showed us how beautifully remote their piece of the world is. We became part of their family for 2 days, meeting some of their friends and being well fed by Chrissy and also... More

I feel kind of embarrassed writing this review since the staff of that lodge was kind and I don’t want to hurt their feelings. The reason that challenged me to write this review is the 40 “5 stars” reviews that led me to stay at this place. This is not a place you want to stop and stay for a... More

We are sorry your stay didn't meet your standards. We strive to make sure all of our guests are comfortable. It is disappointing that you assumed we had "Highway Workers" do the reviews. They were an archeological staff doing work out here. No reviews on here were posted by them, and it was a rare occurrence for us to have... More

My husband and I stayed with Jennifer, Claude, and Bob for 4 nights at the end of July, and loved it. We could not have imagined a more homey and friendly atmosphere. Jennifer, Claude, Bob, Chrissie and Mark did everything they could to make our stay a real success. The lodge is located about 2 hours from Denali National Park,... More

This is one of these unassuming places that is just special. Jennifer, Claude, Bob and extended family are just great hosts, the kind of people you feel like you've known forever from the first time you meet. The Lodge is very nice...homey rather than fancy. We stayed upstairs in the two suites. Actually only booked one but they knew we... More

The Alpine Creek lodge is in a beautiful setting. The staff were kind and the food was decent, but the accommodations were terrible. We stayed in the Trapper cabin which was separate from the main lodge. The main lodge rooms looked like a much better option. Our cabin had all the windows sealed shut and there was so much dust...

I stayed two nights at the Alpine Creek Lodge in July, 2013. This is a cozy, friendly hide-a-way roughly halfway between Cantwell and Paxson AK on the Denali Highway. Claude, Jennifer and Bob are a great owner family and do a superb job of making you feel right at home. Chrissy is an excellent cook, and the meals are hearty... More

Summer or Winter - owners Claude and Jennifer are ready with plenty of hospitality and adventure. Great place if you just need a meal while on your own adventure or stay at the lodge and enjoy great "outdoor" experiences with the guidance of Claude & staff. There are bunk style rooms & a few suites. Kids love this place! If... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We are a wilderness lodge in remote Alaska. We are open year round, every day. Alpine Creek Lodge is on the Denali Highway, so travelers can get there in the summer easily. In the winter, the road is not plowed from October 1st to May 15th. During this period, snow machine, dog mushing, skiing, etc are the only way to get to us. This requires a 65 mile ride on the snow from Cantwell, and 68 miles from Paxson! We are on the side of the Alaska Range, and this is where you will find real Alaska! ... more   less
