My partner Paul found the Redfish Lodge listed in Purpleroofs, the Alaska gay travel resource. There aren't many openly gay friendly places on the Kenai peninisula iso we thougth we would give it a try. Not a luxury place for sure, and not for everyone, but it was a change of pace for us. Met some nice families. Some of... More

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Redfish and Steve and Leah (sp?) made us feel like family. I stayed 6 nights with 3 buddies and used Redfish as our "base of fishing operations". The bottom line for us is that Redfish gives us all we need for our Alaska fishing adventures and they are always so helpful... More

Our group of 13 stayed at Redfish for 8 nights starting August 2. Redfish is in a central location and easy to get to. We were looking for somewhere that was managable for us, age range of 10 to 76, as this was our first trip to Alaska. We found everyone to be very friendly and accomodating with our many... More

Hi Steve and Family! We can't thank you enough for all of your hospitality during our short stay in Sterling a couple weeks ago. Despite the lack of fish caught during our stay, you surely went out of your way to assist our rookie fishermen! Notice that I am not including myself in that comment! Thank you for rearranging things... More

Steve & his crew/family run a great operation. The cabins were great, the staff accommodating, the guides were awesome and we really appreciated the use of equipment (tackle, hip boots & coolers). It's Alaska, not an urban drive thru with pillow chocolates. We also enjoyed Steve swinging by in the evenings to check up on us and the other guests.... More

My husband and I stayed at Redfish lodge for 9 nights. The cabin was spacious and well stocked, the bed very comfortable! We were there to fish and the location was perfect with many options for fishing the Kenai and Russian rivers and also some smaller creeks for trout! I am a bit picky when it comes to lodging as...

We had a nice quiet stay at the Redfish Lodge. We used it as a central location to go fishing from. The room had all we needed. We stayed for 2 nights and never got to meet the owner Steve. We only got to talk to their children. It rained the whole time so we did not get to enjoy... More

My buddy and I stayed for 5 nights. We fished all day and most nights. The staff stayed up taking care of the other guests fish until 1am in the morning while laughing and joking with each other. I am a manager at a casino in Oregon. We are only successful because of our staff and the level of customer... More

For the last number of years I've visited with the gang at Red Fish Lodge and have never been disappointed. The cabins are clean and have everything I'd want or need. The fire pit is welcoming and a bonus on cool nights. The fishing was fantastic- caught our limit both days in a little over 3 hours plus the fish... More

I am quite familiar with Alaska travel and the potential for quirky and unusual customer service experiences but the Red Fish Lodge takes the cake. At check in and throughout our stay the front desk ladies were friendly and accommodating. The "cabin" was bare bones with a strong sulfur smell and taste to the water, there was late night noise...

Wow every couple of years we get a truly unruly unhappy guest. There seems to always be a hostile response here on trip advisor to try and hurt us. Please hear our side and also read onto what others have written about us a you be the judge of this person and their review. As managers and parents we do... More
