Four days at MVWL were the perfect conclusion to our Alaska trip. Its setting is spectacular (see pictures below), looking up a valley to snow-covered peaks in the Chugach Mountains. There are excellent day hikes available in the vicinity, and it was a pleasure to come back to the lodge for a hot shower and first-rate meal. The staff was consistently friendly and helpful. Not only did they ask about food preferences, but they then went out of their way to honor them -- no small feat when the nearest grocery store is 60 miles away. The lodge is spotless, and offers free wifi.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Majestic Valley Lodge, mile 114.9 on the Glenn Hwy, is located at a convenient stopping point along the scenic Glenn Hwy (half way between Palmer and Glennallen) and the elevation is just under 3000 feet. The 7000 square foot hand scribed log lodge overlooks two spectacular mountain ranges: the Talkeetnas and the Chugach. Hiking trails abound; arrange for flight seeing, glacier trekking or river rafting. Free Wireless. Satelite TV. Beer and wine bar. Advance reservation for creatively prepared dinners using fresh ingredients and Alaskan seafood. Full course breakfasts are available and may be reserved upon check-in. The chef and staff provide wonderful meals with the individual's dietary needs in mind. The coffee pot is always ready to brew that freshly ground cup of coffee w/ creamer for those guests that enjoy kicking back on the covered porch to watch the wilderness unfold. Adjacent to the lodge is a small bush airstrip, so watching the planes come in for landings is also eventful. Rooms range in price and ammeneties, but all rooms are very clean, pet and smoking free. ... more less
