I wanted to take my husband somewhere unique, a change from the standard Alyeska or Anchorage hotels, for a birthday surprise. We were both so very pleasantly surprised I felt like it was my birthday too! Dianne was the most gracious host preparing a delicious steak dinner complete with apple pie.
After dinner we enjoyed the outdoor hot tub and finished the evening relaxing by the fire in our room. The home is beautiful, but it's the special little touches Dianne and Brenda add that set Matanuska Lodge apart. From the luxury bathrobes, to the locally produced bottled water, to the funky decor and Godiva chocolates, we truly felt pampered! Breakfast was phenomenal and Dianne made sure there wasn't anything missing. We have five kids and couldn't be away for more than a day, but this was absolutely the perfect getaway. Wish we could have stayed longer!
