I spent a week at Hooksetters in August 2012 with my father and son. Dave was a great host and the staff was very friendly. The cabins were comfortable and the dinners were good. We fished for 5 days and all of the gudes Hooksetters set us up with were great (friendly, knowledgable and enthusiastic). Setting of the lodge leaves a bit to be desired (not as remote as I would like), but for the price I doubt it can be beat. Would definetely recommend.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- An Uncommon Alaska Vacation Lodge with a Unique PhilosophyAlaska Hooksetters is “not your typical Alaska fishing lodge offering your typical Alaska fishing packages at your typical Alaska trip prices.”Why? Because three businessmen joined together a few years ago to create a Kenai Alaska venue and environment that welcomestheir friends and family to a “home away from home” Alaska Vacation on the Kenai Peninsula;fishermen of all ages and skills, and non-fishermen alike….even if they are traveling together; couples looking to truly experience an Alaska Vacation on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula; families on an Alaska Vacation who may not want a full week of non-stop Alaska fishing charters;companies looking for a great Alaska retreat, event or incentive.Our philosophy and perspective is different. Alaska Hooksetters Lodge wants to build memories. Surely a 70lb king salmon, a 300lb halibut or a 10lb rainbow will do that. But so will sharing stories around a covered fire pit or walking the gray soft sand beach near the mouth of the mighty Kenai River. What could be more memorable than a hike along a river or through a lush landscape taking photos of the wildlife; a grizzly bear and her cubs, a moose and her newborn calves, or an eagle soaring above the trees. As the years pass us by, the fondest recollections of your Alaska vacation may be the solitude of your surroundings, the call of the loon, the magnificent and breathtaking mountains where they rise from Cook Inlet, or the fabulous Midnight Sun. ... more less
