We stayed at the Matanuska Glacier Lodge on the last night of a 10 day motorcycle trip. We selected this based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. After staying at several very nice B&B's on the trip, this was our favorite. Brenda and her friends (who were helping for the summer) were wonderful hosts. The lodge itself is beautiful with the log exterior and large glass windows set against the mountains in the back. From the front porch you can see the glacier. When we first arrived the decorating seemed to be a bit over the top (compared to our house), but after meeting Brenda it so fits her personality. It is whimsical and creative and definitely grew on us. We stayed in the room right off the entry with a fireplace and jacuzzi. The shower is a walk-in tiled room that felt so good after a long day on the motorcycles. The extras here are what really makes the lodge. The log exterior, workout room and billiard room in the garage, the hot tube, fire pit, and lake with canoes/kayaks/paddle boats for guests to use. Then there was the breakfast of fresh fruit and french toast that was so delicious. Our only complaint was our own in that we had to end our trip and only stayed here for one day so we really didn't have time to tour the glacier and to fully enjoy all the lodge had to offer. We will definitely return and stay longer when we come back to Alaska.
