Overview

Alaska Horsemen Lodge is an Alaskan destination nestled in the mountains of Cooper Landing. Adjacent to the tranquil Kenai Lake, it is a scenic 100-mile drive south of Anchorage. Our small ranch offers horseback riding, cozy cabins, wall tents, and RV parking on spacious grounds accompanied with comfortable common areas and beautiful mountain views. Known for its unique location for hosting corporate retreats, culture/educational camps, family reunions, adventure travel groups and a great base camp for the leisure traveler. The horses provide a calming and enjoyable backdrop and trail riding is one of the many activities guests find most enjoyable. Your host Alex Kime has been adventuring in Alaska over 50 years (but he is still a spring chicken!!!) and numerous testimonies share guests experience true Alaskan hospitality at our family's Alaska Horsemen Lodge. Our cozy Alaskan wood cabins and wall tent cabins make for a comfortable and memorable glamping experience. Folks mention often the serenity they experience at our small ranch. Our cabins and wall tents can sleep around 20 people. There are tents and camp sites for another 20. There is a spacious area for RV parking, all with mountain views. Our location, on the east end of Cooper Landing, is walking distance to good fishing Quartz Creek, the Kenai Beach, Quartz Creek Campground and the Sunrise Inn Café and lounge. We often watch sheep and goat on nearby Mt. Langille while sitting around the fire pit at the Pavilion. A truly unique and serene experience in an Alaskan pioneer setting.

Dewayne was an awesome wrangler. He was fantastic. We had such a great experience. We loved seeing the retired horses who wander around after working so hard. All of the people were so nice and friendly. We can’t wait to go back.
