We spent two nights here in July 2012. Don't look for the community of Glacier View as there isn't any. The cabins are well kept up and clean and the restaurant serves good food. Sheep Mountain Lodge is ideal for visiting Matanuska Glacier, about 11 miles to the west along the Glenn Hwy. We met Zak too.

Great place to stay when you're traveling through or out visiting the glacier. Nice to escape TV, the Internet, cell phones and relax with a good book and great food. The staff were very hospitiable. The views are beautiful.

This lodge has several small cabins. It was fine, but not all that spectacular. The check-in process was by a clerk who was way too busy for us..... the cabin was clean; had a fridge and micro. As someone else mentioned it has a heater in an odd place, so the area near the door (which does not seal???) was warm, but the bathroom was freezing. Our shower gave warm water for 3 minutes....The hot tub was GREAT. We did not eat there, but the food smelled wonderful. There are some trails on the property which were fun. Overall I would have done our outing (MICA glacier hike) and kept driving.

We spend one night here on our travels through Alaska. The lodge is individual cabins, with a queen bed and a smaller bed if you have children. The rooms are clean comfortable with adequate furnishing and each has a small front deck. We had the room furthest back from the road and were lucky enough to see a moose and her two babies only three weeks old. There are ski trails behind the property that we hiked on in the morning. The restaurant was just average. The owner was pleasant and helpful.

My family had a great family reunion here in December of 2010. The ski trails are marvelous and well-groomed - with lots of long gradual climbs, and exciting downhill runs. The powder was fantastic that December. It was my third visit to this location, and I've never been disappointed. Our children had a great time skiing and would love to go again. The owners are dog-mushers, so it was fun to see them leaving on their runs early in the morning. They would go in a huge circuit - 90 miles I believe they said - in training for the Iditarod. They are friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The cabins we stayed in had showers and a small kitchen. Very Alaskan decor, and clean

If you are traveling north along the Glenn Hwy this is THE place to stop for a meal or an overnight. Anjanette Steer and her husband Zack have owned the place for quite a few years and take pride in making this place one of the best little getaways in the state. In the winter the restaurant is not open for meals but they have cozy cabins for rent and have miles of groomed ski trails with beautiful scenery.

We have traveled to many AK get-aways and Sheep Mountain Lodge continues to impress us! The cabins are clean and cozy. The full kitchens make it easy to cook for our baby and we have plenty of room for her toys and ours. We ate in the restaurant a few times and had a hard time choosing (salmon special was delicious!!!!). The trails are well-marked and we saw moose and other wildlife within minutes of our cabin. We can't wait to visit in the winter and ski those same trails now that we know they groom them when it snows. The only disappointment was that we didn't get a chance to meet the famous Iditarod musher from Sheep Mountain. He must've been out feeding the dogs!
