We just returned today from a spectacular trip to Alaska. Spent a wonderful week at the beautiful Anglers Lodge in Sterling Alaska on the Kenai Peninsula. Owners Mark and Julie and entire staff welcome everyone as family and provide such a warm and friendly atmosphere. They make sure you are taken care of with any needs you have. The location of the lodge sits directly on the beautiful blue green glacier water of the Kenai River with Salmon fishing right from the wonderful dock. The beautiful landscaped property offers a big fire pit, horse shoes, fishing equipment etc. The picturesque rustic lodge offers tasty home cooked meals and excellent service from the staff. The beautiful rustic cabins provide a comfortable peaceful stay with the true feel of Alaska. The staff at the lodge will book any fishing trips and any Alaskan adventures you have on your bucket list. The location of the Lodge sits right in the middle of the Peninsula with the beautiful town of Soldotna just down the road with all the amenities of a nice small town. Come to Alaska and enjoy the pristine beauty and let Anglers Lodge your peaceful retreat while you discover the true magic that Alaska offers. This Lodge and it’s wonderful staff are a true Gem in Alaska.

The people, fishing, food, location, lodging are outstanding. The people were helpful in all regards with out every need handled effortlessly, limited out on salmon, halibut, yellow eye, rock fish every day, "Chef" was the man preparing the best dishes, and the location is within feet if the Knik River. 5+ would be in order.

Just spent a week at the Anglers Lodge. A great place with a wonderful staff. The onwers bent over backward to make sure my son and I had a great time. Located close to several fly out services. They had a great chef that prepared excellent meals. The supporting staff were friendly and always ready to accommodate our needs and wants. I could spend the morning and evening fishing from the front yard prior and after the chosen daily activity. The lodge arranged for our fly outs to different locations, it was seamless. We were given a daily itenary that told us where and when we needed to be somewhere it had all the onformation we needed. The owners did everything they could to ensure we had a wonderful vacation.

As one other reviewer stated, there is no equal place of this type! From the warm, friendly, hands-on staff, to the location, food, and fishing possibilities, it's all exceptionally great! This place and our experience there was the highlight of our week-long time in Alaska. Julie and Mark, Rod, Chef Mark, the river guides, everyone was genuinely caring and helpful.

I'm not sure there are enough superlatives to describe our experience here. First, let me tell you about how our trip ended. Alaska was on fire. We could not get back to Anchorage on Sunday as Sterling Highway was closed. After sitting on the highway for over 4 hours, we turned back to Soldotna. We called Mark (one of the owner's) and he said "come on back. We will take care of you tonight - on us." Little did I know, TWENTY EIGHT more guests who had checked out but could not get past the closed roads also returned. Mark and Julie and their staff welcomed us all back. They had rooms ready for all of us. They made us an incredible dinner (salad, rolls, pasta dish, lemon custard dessert)! We then sat around the outdoor fireplace, shared stories, and enjoyed the Kenai River until dark. Mark and Julie are amazing and they have created an incredible atmosphere for adults and families. We fished three days in a row (rainbow trout fishing, Salmon fishing on the Kenai, and a fly-out trip to the Great River Lake). We caught our limit each day (except rainbow day was catch and release), caught fish from the dock, and the guides were absolutely fantastic. Chef Mark made incredible meals each night for dinner. We had ribs, salmon, prime rib, the best chicken dish I've ever had - alp around a family-style dining environment where we experienced wonderful conversation with our new friends. Rod was absolutely phenomenal. He just knows how to treat people right. He worked tirelessly to make sure our needs were met and he did it with the level of kindness that is rarely seen anymore. We made incredible friends and it felt like we were gathered among family. We will be back soon.

Booked a fishing trip late July / early August. Been to Anglers Lodge a few times before, but not in a few years. Was overall disapointed with this lodge. There were over 30 people based out of this lodge while we were there. Everything seemed rushed and not well organized. We were in one of the castaway cabins which was not ideal since it was +/- 1/2 mile from the main lodge and the river. Previous trips to Anglers Lodge were memorable due to the fact that we could fish right at the lodge and few people staying at the lodge. You can still fish at the lodge, but more difficult due to so many people and especially if you’re staying at the castaway lodge. Also fished on the Tina Rose out of Seward, which was part of the package with Anglers Lodge. Beautiful boat, but not good fishing. There were 13 of us on that boat, which seemed too many. I was sitting on coolers and standing on the way out due to lack of seats. Don’t want to just complain since we were in Alaska fishing, so some of the positives was the fishing. Had a great run of reds this summer and the guides at the Lodge had the spots to make sure we got our limit. The location of Anglers Lodge is fantastic. Just pretty disappointed with this last trip due to total number of people at the lodge and the overall unorganized staff.

Wow this is very unusual as we pride ourselves in being organized. One thing you have to remember is booking late in the season for the two weeks everyone wants can have its downfalls. That is a very busy 2 weeks for us as our fishing is extremely good. All the folks that read this should take that in consideration. Most people will put up with the rat race as catching a 40lb King is on most every ones bucket list. Please let these folks know what you guys caught for fish. These folks booked in March before the season and the cabins are all that we had so please remember to book your fishing trips early and ask as many questions as you can. If you are looking for a more peaceful time to come to fish Alaska try August. The fishing is still incredible. Also remember to let someone know at the lodge the problems you are feeling as we are here to provide the best vacation we can. We will always make changes to solve any problems we can and don't wait until your gone to complain. We could have made a more pleasurable vacation for you.

We only had 48 hours for our visit and Mark and Julie managed to fill the time with lots of wonderful. The dinner meals were what you normally get in fine dining restaurants. The fishing was superb. The comradeship around the fire at night was the perfect end to the day. Both mornings we caught our limit, the second day it only took an hour. All in all, I don’t think there would be any way to make this better, other than being able to stay longer.

Wow! Just WOW! Great variety of experiences with both river and sea fishing - we didn't do a fly out but we will try it next time! Cabins/rooms were quiet, spacious and comfortable. It was a treat that the rooms didnt have tv's as it made us see more of the lodge and visit with other guests, but truthfully by the time you got back from the days adventure - it felt like dinner and bed were all that you were interested in. They have a great hot tub, fire area and cozy swings by the river! One more thing - their chef is AMAZING! Food was delicious! Thank you for an amazing time!
