My husband and I found Sheep Mountain Lodge a perfect midpoint stop when driving between Anchorage and Valdez on the Glenn Hwy. Our clean, quiet cabin #11 was furthest from the highway and at a trail head. The front porch offered a side view of Sheep Mountain. Unfortunately, rains prevented our exploring Independence Mine and Matanuska Glacier en route from Anchorage so we arrived early and appreciated our cozy cabin. On a sunny day, we could have hiked their trails near Sheep Mountain and visited their Iditarod kennel as well. Even with ugly weather, we recommend this comfortable, convenient stop at Mile 113.5 of the Glenn Hwy. And, if you are there for breakfast, we recommend the sourdough French bread. It's superb!
