As many people have said before, this was an extremely fun and beautiful place to stay while visiting the Sutton area. Check-in is super easy as Mandy lives on property and has thought of everything you would need during your stay. I definitely recommend one of the mountain tents as you get great view of the glacier and mountains but all of the tents come with comfortable bedding and plenty of space to relax and enjoy nature. The bathrooms and showers are super clean and easy to use and I definitely recommend enjoying a dip in the wood hot tub. Breakfast is cooked to order each morning and there are variety of options available in the kitchen all day long. It is clear Mandy has put a lot of thought and effort into this experience and I'd highly recommend staying a few nights if you are anywhere close to this area.…
I loved everything about this place. Everyone was very nice, the tents were clean and comfortable and not on you of each other. They had showers and flushing toilets close by and a common place for guests to meet each other and maybe play some games. The staff cooked you breakfast in the mornings which tasted a whole lot better than any complimentary breakfast at the big hotels. The campground is close to the Glacier View excursions (glacier hikes, zip lining) along with a coffee and ice creams stand. The only downside is you are not allowed to cook anything which is understandable due to the wildlife but there is a restaurant 10-15 minutes away.
My older parents (70s) were skeptical about staying here, but all of us wished we had booked multiple days! We stayed in four places in Alaska and this was by far our favorite. I cannot say enough how much we enjoyed it, how well we slept, and that she had thought of every detail to make it special and enjoying watching a moose munch on her dinner as I brushed my teeth was icing on the cake.
This place is heaven on earth! Splendidly gorgeous! The tents and beds are so comfortable. The common areas are beautiful! Lovely kitchen and campfire (smores setup) experience. My kids had a blast! The bathrooms are so clean and modern! Breakfast was delicious and fresh! The hot tub was the highlight of the stay! Every small detail was taken care of -they even had soap/shampoo in the common showers! We even saw a mama and kid moose on the glamsite! The staff and Mandy are so friendly and helpful. Very highly recommend a stay here!
All the good reviews of this place are correct. The camp is kept in amazing shape by Mandy, who is so kind and really cares about the site. The hot tub was incredible and I would stay again! The tent and chairs were perfect for a solo getaway.
This experience was better then I ever expected. Let me just go down the list of everything because I think every part needs a highlight: The Tents: so clean, you even are required to take your shoes off prior to entering and slippers are provided!! The bed was so lush and cozy, the front deck was so relaxing to sit on and you even have a desk and mirror in there The bathrooms: I mean for a place in the middle of no where I was not even expecting a bathroom let alone flushing brand new toilets and sinks. They were also so clean it exceeded my expectations for sure. The shower/hot tub: The hot tub was phenomenal I wish I could’ve stayed in all night, then shampoo, conditioner and body wash are all provided for you in the showers it was great Common area/kitchen: this has everything you could need from games to snacks. You can also roast s’mores at night by the fire and a s’mores bar was set up in the kitchen ( I wish I took a pic of it). I was also able to grab a plastic wine cup for the hot tub and it was great!! Other fun surprises: - You get a beer at check-in - The views are phenomenal - The breakfast was soooo good - I didn’t get to see a moose on the grounds but I sure did see a lot of tracks in the morning (wish I snuck out at night and caught a glimpse) - It was nice hanging around in the common space with other people and just chat about what we’ve done in Alaska and what we still need to do!…
Stayed two nights with our family of four in two mountain tents. The views are breathtaking right from the deck. Breakfast was delicious and beds were the best night sleep we had on the trip. Kids played bags while adults enjoyed a beer on the patio. The owner is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and has thought of every detail. It seemed nicer than most hotels and we hope to come back one day.
We booked a tent at Alpenglow to stay after we hiked on Matanuska Glacier. It was just wonderful! Totally exceeded my expectations. The hot tub was fun, the tent was really clean and nice, and Mandy thought of everything, right down to the slippers! Breakfast was so tasty, and there was plenty of it, and just relaxing on the hammock was great. The view is just incomparable. I thought I wouldn't sleep very well, but I slept so, so well! My husband, 19 year old, and 8 year old also had a really great time, and we would all love to go back!
When looking for the perfect spot to get away, then the Alpenglow luxury tents is for you. The accommodations are fantastic. The Forrest tent gives you the woods feel, but just enough sunshine to catch a tan. The beds and linens were great! The entire atmosphere, including the hot tub and HOT showers make this place an Alaska 5 Star!
On our two week trip, our night glamping at Alpenglow was our favorite! What an incredibly beautiful setting and really fun experience. Sitting around the fire at night sharing stories with fellow travelers was really fun. The hot tub was great and the platform tent very comfortable. It got a little cold on my head (I wish I had a hat), but we were super warm under a pile of heavy blankets.
