Went to Alaska in August, 2013. The one thing we HAD to do while we were there was to go on a bear-viewing adventure. We were lucky & chose Steller Air in Homer, Alaska to fly us into bear country. We had no idea what to expect-but, Wow! Our pilot, Stephanie, explained on the way over to Lake Clark National Forest & Preserve, that we would land on Crescent Lake at Redoubt Mountain Lodge. As we coasted into shore, we saw the lodge. Beautiful log cabins & lodge in this beautiful, remote area on a 9-mile long glacial lake. A few minutes later we boarded a pontoon boat with our guide, Clark. We saw bears! And lots of them! For a few wonderful hours Clark drove us around the lake to watch bears of all sizes come out of the woods in search of Salmon. We watched them play, catch fish & feed. Around noon we headed back to the lodge for a wonderfully prepared meal of salmon! Heather is a great cook & prepared the fish with a delicious, flavorful topping. The whole meal was perfect! The dining cabin was comfortable & inviting.
Even though we weren't actually staying at the lodge, the warmth & hospitality of everyone we encountered that day made us want to book a stay at Redoubt Mountain Lodge in the future-the not too distant future!
