The Alaska Serenity Lodge was a perfect a weekend getaway from Anchorage. Arriving late on a Friday night we were greeted by dozens of bunny rabbits and the onsite handyman (who provided free beer!!). Our first impression of the property was the fantastic location on the lake and the breathtaking views. We were taken directly to our private cabin and were shown where everything was located on the property. The cabin was new, spotless and cozy, yet large enough to provide some privacy. All we needed to bring with us were clothes and food, everything else was provided! There is a hot tub, canoe, hiking, fishing, everything we could want. Friday night Katie and her daughters joined us for a large bonfire complete with smores :-). This is such a peaceful area, yet not too far from Soldotna for restaurants/nightlife. Eventhough Dave has connections for guided fishing & hunting trips; we didn't book anything this time. However, will definitely be coming back in 2011!
