Absolutely perfect. We arrived by floatplane, four generations of family, ages 12 to 91, and the new owners of the lodge, Dave & Heather, and Bill &Tasha, all focused on making each of our vacation desires happen. Mom settled into the perfect place to sit by the fireplace to relax and read, with a beautiful mountain view. Dave and Heather took us by boat for some great hikes. Heather kept a .45 on her to keep us safe from a possible bear encounter. Walking the tundra, seeing the creek rush by, hearing different birds, all was uniquely beautiful. My grandson found reindeer antlers, and my son enjoyed Dave’s company. We had a great time fishing, and Bill, our talented chef, cooked them to perfection for supper. Our meals were done family-style, which is how all their guests are treated, like family. Our rooms were spotless, and all of the lodge is cozy, comfortable, just amazingly beautiful. Tasha and the girls keep the rooms and the kitchen tidy. We wanted to have a birthday party for mom, and the girls offered to make her a cake. She was overwhelmed with happiness. This whole experience was so much more than I anticipated, and so much better than the typical tourist trip. I can’t wait to go back. It was truly awesome.

I was just out for one night but managed to see moose and bears on the flight out and got a brilliant northern lights show right from the gorgeous front deck overlooking the lake and mountains.

Even just the flight out to the lodge is one of the most stunning experiences I’ve had in Alaska and I grew up and spent most of my life here. This is not a spot to miss.

Bill killed it in the kitchen with the best spread I’ve seen. All the owners and staff were fantastic. Definitely going to get back out as soon as I can.

What an incredible place! Love the views of the mountains overlooking the lake. Really enjoyed the flight in and boating around the lake seeing all of the salmon. The food was top notch and scenery unbeatable.

What a great place and experience all the way around. I was able to stay at the end of summer and was able to see the northern lights, food was amazing and Heather and Dave were great. I highly recommend going there if you ever have an opportunity. 10 out of 10.

I cannot say enough about this experience! The most relaxing experience at the lodge after a full day fishing ! The food was incredible!!! The fishing guide Bill was the best! The views were amazing! I wish we had booked more days! The float plane in was amazing! I recommend the lodge if you love to hunt or fish or you live to sit by the fire and look at the beautiful view! Thank you to the staff for the amazing, relaxing and refreshing experience!

We flew in on a bluebird day in September with a clear view of Denali and its surrounding peaks. That alone would have made my whole trip but it only continued to get better. We were greeted by Heather and her husband Dave and their two exceptional children. Their service and hospitality were spot on. You could tell that they truly cared about our comfort and our experience. The main lodge has a grand room with a cozy fireplace where I enjoyed several nights indulging in charcuterie that was promptly served at 5 pm every evening. I consider this my new happy place...
The days were spent fishing out on the 5-mile stretch of the gorgeous blue lake where we caught several fish. The chef even prepared our catch for breakfast, lunch, and dinner throughout our stay. It was a trip my husband and I will never forget and we can't wait to get back to our happy place!

Stephan lake is a true Alaskan experience from the flight in to the flight out. We were lucky to catch the fall colors and Northern Lights over Labor Day weekend. We had amazing views on our hike along with an ample amount of blueberries for picking. At the end of the day, we would come back to delicious meals and great hospitality. One of my favorite experiences!
