“Great place on the Lake!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Nice friendly clean place to stay. Food is excellent, staff very friendly and helpful. Great year round retreat! Highly recommend for a weekend get away. Has restaurant, bar, great rooms and a true Alaskan atmosphere. One of Alaska's best kept secrets well worth the bumpy 17 mile drive down Lake Louse Rd!

Room Tip: All of them are great!

We have stayed for a month in Alaska and this is far and away the best place from Fairbanks to Denali to Soldotna to Homer and beyond! Great find off the beaten path! Great restaurant in the lodge and wonderful helpful friendly people!

Room Tip: #5... The lodge only has 7 rooms!

We had lunch at the Lake Louise Lodge, which is the only restaurant in this area of Alaska to serve food. Our table of three ordered one bowl of chili and two French dip roast beef sandwiches. One sandwich side was ordered with hash-brown potatoes, the other with home fries and coleslaw. The food was freshly prepared and the sandwiches and chili were very good.
This lodge offers a breakfast, lunch and dinner items with a variety of choices, Our food was good and tasted home made.

16 miles off the Glen Highway, you will arrive at the Lake Louise Lodge. It is worth the trip. Lovely lodge, on a beautiful lake. The owners, Yvette and John are welcoming and wonderful. They run this lodge with efficiency and professionalism and make guests feel at home. They will give you great advice on what to see and do in the area. The room we stayed in, #3, was lovely, with a balcony that had two big rocking chairs. Overlooking the lake, we sat and drank our wine, enjoying the peace and beauty of the area. The food they serve in their on site restaurant is home cooked and delicious. Their hot cakes at breakfast were amazing! The eggs were light and fluffy and the bacon was crisp and delicious. Halibut at dinner was so good! Light and fresh! We had the most fun hanging out at the bar and drinking Alaskan beer while hearing about the area from local residents. This is a truly Alaskan experience. You really need to consider taking this diversion off the beaten path to immerse in a cultural experience you will not soon forget. You won't regret your trip to this special place.

Room Tip: Room #3 is really nice. It overlooks the lake and you can sit in the big, comfortable wooden rocking...

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our one night in mid May at Lake Louise Lodge, and just wished we could have stayed longer. The lodge is authentic, with a breathtaking view of the lake. The owners were charming, nice and real people, The bar is a lively, fun place to mingle with the lake community. The lake was still ice when we were there, and it was amazing to see how people drive snow machines across the lake, as transportation from their homes. While we would have loved to see the lake in the summer, with boats, it was unforgettable as we saw it, and helped us understand Alaska.

It is well worth turning the Glenn Highway for the short detour to get to such an exceptional place.

This place was a pleasure to stay at. The whole family is involved with it's operation. It's nice to see a family that works and enjoy each other. We had room #3 that was upstairs with a great view of the lawn and lake. Rocking chairs on our deck was great to enjoy wine in the evening. It was the best place we stayed while in AK

The decision to stay here was the result of not being able to make any suitable arrangements for the night in Valdez as we traveled from Seward to Fairbanks. This turned out to be fortunate for us as we traveled back through Anchorage and out the Glen Highway toward Glenallen. The beautiful and spectacular scenery of snow covered mountains, glaciers and rivers just never ends. As we turned down the road to Lake Louise, we didn't know what to expect. The land here is very sparsely covered with small spruce, but as we entered the Lake Louise Lodge parking, the view of Lake Louise opened up and made it all worth the effort. The lodge is relatively small and "quaint." Our room was on the second floor with a great view of the lake from our porch rocking chairs. A fine breakfast in included and dinner is offered in the lodge. My wife and I had the halibut and scallops...both were excellent. The lodge is not easy to reach but, if you are in the Glenallen area and looking for a place to spend the night, this is a good choice.
