Shan and Eric are super friendly and have built themselves an amazing lodge. Beautiful property and remote but lacks no amenities. Huge lodge with hot tub, game room and bar. Dinner was excellent. Had our won bunkhouse with very nice accommodations.

You can only get to the fishing resort by float plane, boat or snow machine (in the winter) and that in itself is awesome. Think about that...everything at the lodge (including the dog, Yentna) had to get...

Eric & Shan were fantastic and generous hosts. My trip to Northwoods was booked last minute and all via email, but couldn't have been better organised. The guides are very knowledgeable and they love what they do - very professional approach but easy to have a chat with, be it on the middle of the river at 5am or after...

We had a company fishing trip at Northwoods Lodge in beautiful Skwentna, Alaska. The lodge was terrific, very nice, clean, comfortable with all amenities you would ever needed. Shan and her staff cook excellent meals and take care of all your lodge needs. Eric and his fishing guides put us on the fish and made each day that much better....

My husband and I left Northwoods Lodge two weeks ago, and we are STILL reliving the visit to this place. Shan, her family and crew sure know how to run a lodge! I don't see how anyone else's could even compare. If you are reading this, you are probably considering this lodge. You WILL NOT be disappointed. Well worth the...

The cabin was deluxe, fine craftsmanship and a beautiful view of the lake from the deck. Very private, quiet, the most comfortable bed and clean! Food in the lodge was so good and focused on the region's excellent salmon, moose meat, and served with style. Fishing guides were excellent and knowledgable, caught Northern Pike, Rainbow trout and King Salmon that...
