My wife and I stopped in for lunch on a very busy Sunday. We were driving home to Fairbanks on the "old road" (Glen/Richardson) on a beautiful day. Sheep Mt. Lodge was full with travelers including a large tour bus. We were seated right away and the service was quick and pleasant and the chili w/salad was very good. For...

Very comfortable and clean. We stayed in Cabin 11 and fellow travelers stayed in the guest house. In all of my travels I would rank this place easily in my top 10. Just clean, quiet, practical, private accommodations with a friendly restaurant to boot! Easy Check in/out. The location was a perfect rest spot on our trip towards Valdez. The...

A very nice accommodation. Outstanding scenic views from the side of a mountain. Has several hiking trails. Does not have telephone, television, or internet. No problem with any of this. The only problem we had was that we were housed in the last cabin (#11) on the uphill that gave us problems in getting luggage from car up to cabin.

I always wanted to stay at Sheep Mountain Lodge and finally had my chance. It is in a great and scenic location not too far from the charming farmlands of Palmer. The cabin we had was clean and spacious although the decor is austere. Beautiful view from the large porch and I could actually see Dall sheep with my binoculars...

We arrived at Sheep Mountain Lodge after a trying journey from Denali. The route from Anchorage was incredibly scenic. The Lodge was a real find. The sort of place you wish you could find more often, so it was a pity that we were only to spend one night there. Our cabin was bright, spotless and very well maintained. We...

We stayed for two nights at the sheep mountain lodge and we loved it! We had a cabin with two queen beds and a sofa which was perfect for our family of five. The cabin was in mint condition. The best part was the deck overlooking the mountains. The location of the lodge is very convenient and very close to...

We spent one night at SML in June 2015. The last night of a two week Alaska vacation for our family of four as we headed back to Anchorage. Glad we stopped here. We stayed in Cabin #3 and it was wonderful. Large and well constructed, it easily accommodated the four of us. It was immaculate as was the entire...

SML is the kind of road house you always wish for but rarely find. Great stop between McCarthy or Chitina, and Anchorage/MatSu Valley. Menus were VERY good, meals delivered as promised, there is ample parking, cabins are simple but spotless (but do bring your own blow dryer), hospitality was above average for a road house. There were even hiking trails...

We are glad you enjoyed our "roadhouse" hospitality. Our staff work hard to make each guests stay memorable. Our scenic location is nestled between the Chugach and Talkeetna Mountain ranges - offering beautiful views in every direction. Access to this beautiful location is via the Glenn Highway or Highway 1 - and we feel the road noise is minimal during...

Stayed in one of the large cabins for two nights my companion and two grandchildren. Enjoyed sitting on the porch looking at the view. Kitchen well stocked. Beds were comfortable. Plenty of room for the four of us. Enjoyed the hiking trails around the lodge.
