We had an incredible stay. The cabins are comfortable, clean and have everything you need. The hosts are great, friendly and responsive. The campfire area was fun and the fish processing room was a great add-on! The cabins are also centrally located to all of thefishing and restaurants we went to in the area.
Cabins were immaculate. Love the bonfire area-met some interesting people. Also the addition of a 4 fish suction processor is a great addition. Jeremy and Nick also provide excellent guide service through Drift Away Guides. Loved the Rainbow trip and the float trip on the Kasilof for Sockeyes.
Our group of 4 just wrapped up our dream trip to Alaska (end of June into early July). It was the male family elders, with ages ranging from 53 to 83. When I set out to plan this trip, I knew little about Alaska, and nothing about who to trust our trip with. I finally narrowed down a list of activities we wanted to pursue (pretty much all fishing) and reached out to 4 or 5 lodges that offered more budget-conscious inclusive trip packages. Silvertip was very responsive, they put together a great itinerary to meet my requests, , and to my surprise, was quite a bit more reasonable than all of the others. The only downside I could see is that they do not offer waterfront 5 star accomodations, but I figured that we'd mostly just be sleeping there anyway, and I prefer to put the money into the activities than the bed. Honestly, as the guy making the plans for everyone else, I was a little concerned that the lower cost might be a red flag, but the good reviews convinced me to give them a chance. I am pleased to say that Jeremy and Andrea run a very professional operation... everything ran like clockwork.... from the clean and functional cabins in the woods, to the scheduling and performance of our charters/trips/guides. They even have a fish processing facility on sight to help you preserve your catch. Each cabin has a charcoal grill where we ate fresh fish most every night, and there is a community firepit and coin laundry on location too. But they are not just a well run business, they are a friendly and approachable family, who made us feel right at home. Silvertip is centrally located in the Kenai peninsula which made for easy travel to the Anchorage airport, fishing, and to sightseeing in Homer, Seward and other locals. We chose to do trips for sockeye salmon, halibut, rainbow trout, and a fly-out trip for bears and salmon. We caught our limit of fish every day (except for trout which are catch and release). I would say that the fly-out was our favorite event. But we also enjoyed sightseeing and a boat trip out of Seward. Early morning drives to fishing were a great time to spot moose, and after about the 100th bald eagle, you'll stop calling them out to everyone. Wildlife and scenic vistas are everywhere in the Kenai, it does not fail to deliver! Another point to consider, I was concerned as we had people with various levels of physical ability, but everyone did fine with the acitivities... the most strenous part was pulling halibut up from 300', and maybe the small ladder to get in and out of the float plane. Others posted cabin photos... I chose to show some activity photos. So in summary, I'd say this: Put yourself in their hands and let them help create the trip you've been wanting to take to Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. I think you'll be very pleased. We hope to stay with them again !…
If you are expecting a luxury hotel, this is not it but it is the best of woodsy cabin accommodations we have stayed in in a beautiful setting not far from town. Our cabin was immaculately clean and very well equipped with a full kitchen, a table you could serve a meal at and a big living room. Two bedrooms were small but we only needed one anyway. Two luggage stands provided for each room. Complete coffee supplies were provided in the kitchen. Great place for 2 couples to stay. New webber barbecue grill outside. Our only complaint wass that the internet was slower than we have experienced in most other places on our trip. We only stayed one night but must people come here for multi night stays. Good experience.
One of the best places we have stayed at on our 50th Anniversary Trip! It is owned and operated by a Young family and they keep everything immaculate! Cabins are spotless and very comfortable! Very spacious and easy access!! Went on a one day fishing trip on the kenai River with Jeremy the owner, and caught two beautiful sockeye salmon! Couldn’t have asked for a better few days anyplace! Went back to Silvertip Lodge to go Fishing for Salmon, and had a Fantastic Time! Jeremy set up all Guides for our trip,and they were all wonderful! The cabin was Great!
