This place is awesome. Definitely one of the coolest places we stayed in Alaska, set amid all of these rocky cliffs and mountainsides. You pass the Matanuska Glacier and lots of beautiful valleys and so forth when you go to this place. We went to the restaurant, which was excellent as well.

There's a nice wooded area that people can peruse...though my mom disappeared for like 2 hours and I thought a grizzly bear got her! We also got cell reception pretty much everywhere in Alaska except for here -- and there is no internet access (or, there was none when we were there). Not overall a problem. The little cabins are awesome, there is a hot tub/jacuzzi, and there's plenty of stuff to see along the way.

The food at the restaurant is excellent, they usually have some chunks of salmon and some good entrees and desserts. Everyone we met there was super nice and the lodge is beautiful and well-taken care of.

This served as a nice stopover on the drive from Valdez to Anchorage. Clean, comfortable and lovely views. Nice to have access to cooking facilities and micro-wave. When we were here the restaurant was closed for the season, so having ability to cook for ourselves was great. Heater took a little while to warm the cabin up, but after 90 minutes or so it was very cozy.

Clean shower, beds and towels, definitely recommend this one.

the cabin was large and clean. wi-fi was available in the room but no tv. the hiking up the mountain behind the lodge was well marked and clear. however, the lodge is right on the road, so there was traffic noise. the restaurant served very tasty meals at a good price. overall a very nice place to stay.

This is a wonderful place. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The location is out of this world with a number of hiking trails directly behind the lodge. The cabins are to die for. We were very satisfied with ours. The restaurant was excellent and reasonable. Mantanuska Glacier is nearby and an experience to walk on. The mountains that surround the lodge change colors as the day ends and is enough to draw you to your picture window to watch.

My family (2 grandparents and 3 teenagers) trekked the nearby Matanuska Glacier, then headed the 10 miles or so to SML restaurant for dinner. I'd heard good things but still the meal was a very pleasant surprise, even the coffee was good. Our dinner choices were: pasta with smoked salmon and pesto sauce; chili and a salad; stuffed burrito; and a luscious looking cheeseburger. It was definitely worth the extra few miles out of our way.

cute cabins, tasty food, and friendly staff. nice place. we just returned from a night there, 2 beds in the room, large bath, and tv, missing was hair dryer, radio/alarm clock. good heater, and view beyond belief. quiet other than some hiway noise. cost $ 135 for a double, food was reasonable. winter rates are a bit less. only qualms were hard beds, and little soul in cabins, meaning art on walls, or small touches. but all in all, nice place to hang your hat, and fill your belly.
