A cabin stay surrounded by beautiful mountains Sep 10, 2011
The Sheep Mountain Lodge (SML) is technically seen no lodge. At least there is not a big building with a fire place and rooms. Guests stay in nice wooden cabins. So, I would suggests a name like "Sheep Mountain Cabin Camp" instead.
SML offers two types of cabins and a bunk house as well. I stayed in the classic cabin. These cabins offer a nice private sun deck at the exterior and one (combined) bed-living room and a bathroom inside. The bathroom comes with some amenities like shampoo etc. The living room has a table, airco-heater and, (very handy) hundreds of hooks to hang anything you like to the wall. There is a microwave and a fridge. There is one king bed and one (rather small) second bed. Not all cabins can be reached by car!
The SML has a restaurant annex gift shop. Here guests can use free WiFi. On the SML lands one can hike in summer or X-country ski in winter. SML has its own prvate air strip. And a sauna as well (not used). The views on the surrounding Chugach Mountains are amazing.
Compared to other lodges and hotels in Alaska I found SML pretty expensive. The location close to the Glenn Highway can make it (for Alaska standards) pretty noisy and a huge disadvantage of the cabins is the fact that the hot water facilities is sourced by a boiler which runs out pretty quickly.
Yet, being mid-way the Glenn highway, it is certainly a nice place to stay.
