We stayed at Bruce's Sourdough Lodge a few weeks ago while in Wrangell to visit the bear observatory. The Lodge is effectively one of just two decent places to stay in this town, and this is by far the more interesting. It is set a few blocks away from the "downtown" of Wrangell, and it is an easy walk from... More

We visited Wrangell for photography and worked with a guide daily. The upstairs room we had was huge, very clean, had a brand new bathroom with a two shower head shower and three beds. Drawbacks were no curtain on windows near vaulted ceiling so when sunrise occurred it was like being inside a bright, white box at 5 am. Bring... More

We could not have dreamed of a better start to our 3 weeks tour- and it is all because if Bruce and Darlene who were like a family for us and their lodge that brings together unique people. The room we got was clean. Very small, had only basic things in it and in the shower there was only soap.... More

This was my first time in Alaska and I'd like to thank Bruce and Darlene for an amazing experience at the Sourdough Lodge in Wrangell AK. Myself, my dad and a family friend spent three nights and four days staying at the lodge. The lodge itself was spacious, inviting and spotless. The food was amazing. The owners / hosts rolled...

I only stayed here for a couple of nights but would pick this place again if here on a short trip. The atmosphere is what I like the best. My room was very large, clean andcomfortable. If you are like me and would rather not hang out in your hotel room, there is a large common area with a variety... More

We stayed for three nights. Bruce and Darlene Harding (owners & hosts) are great. One of our tours (Stikine River) was cancelled at the last minute and Bruce had gone out of his way to arrange another tour (LeConte Glacier). The place is quite, at the edge of town, about a mile from city center. Bruce and Darlene picked us... More

We were amazed to see not only the sheets being washed, but the mattress covers and quilts upon every departure. You can't be guaranteed that in a 5-Star Hotel! Dar and Bruce make you feel like family, if you're willing to leave your "city attitude" back in the City (we witnessed a few snooty guests). It was truly amazing to... More

Dar and Bruce make you feel right at home at their camp for fisherman. It's clean, and serviceable and they are always available to pick you up or drive you to wherever you need to be. We loved the barca lounger and plop-down sofa right in front of the big tv

Couldn't ask for better hosts. Bruce & Dar have a beautiful home and make you feel right at home. Couldn't ask for a cleaner, nicer place to stay. Home cooked food and a lift to and from the ferry dock anytime you need it. Thanks folks!!

When our flight to Petersburg was aborted, Alaska Airlines dumped us in Wrangell. Bruce was a lifesaver. He made two trips to the airport to pick up seven of us and take us to the lodge. Then he went out, got groceries, and made us a delicious dinner! The room was clean, cozy, and warm. The next morning he made... More
