This was my first trip to Alaska and I will definitely be returning. The Anchor River Lodge is not your typical bed and breakfast – with an exterior log cabin look, it is a beautiful modern home and the hosts are superb. Brian knows just about everything there is to know about fishing and is more than happy to share his knowledge with you. Janet was amazing! We went on a halibut charter fishing excursion one morning where we had to leave the lodge at 5 AM. But at 4 30 there was Janet, with breakfast ready and fresh coffee to go. The reindeer sausage and pancakes were unbelievable! The lodge sits atop a peak overlooking a local river filled with salmon. The views of the mountains are amazing. Being able to sit on the porch at 11 PM when it is still light out and having those views is not something you can get in many other places in the WORLD! Even if you are not an outdoorsman (I am not), this is definitely a trip that everyone needs to experience. There is a nearby Russian Village, views of local mountains, and horseback riding nearby. So there is something for everyone. I definitely recommend a trip to the Anchor River Lodge and I will be staying there next summer when I head back to Alaska!
