This beautiful log-cabin fishing lodge near the Kenai River has an accommodation for families of all sizes. You can choose something as simple as a room with bunk beds or an entire cabin with three bedrooms and a Jacuzzi tub. Ideal for a family would be the Eagle’s Nest cabin. It includes a king bed and two sets of bunk beds, a spacious living room, fully equipped kitchen and a swing on the front porch. The owners specialize in helping you put together an awesome vacation package with their “Build Your Own Adventure” options, which can include bear viewing, river float trips, glacier hiking, and, of course, fishing for halibut, salmon or trout. Other amenities include free Wi-Fi, free buffet breakfast, BBQ, bar and hot tub.

The Salmon Catcher Lodge sits in a quiet wooded area between the towns of Kenai and Soldotna. There are cool walking trails winding through the trees to the nearby river. Drive 8 miles to the south or 8 miles to the west to find restaurants and grocery stores in either of the two towns. The Kenai City Beach is a fun place for kids to go beachcombing and find agates and shells. Off in the distance you might see a steam plume rising up from the crater of Mount Redoubt, one of Alaska’s most active volcanoes. The Kenai National Wildlife Refuge is not far from your lodge, and is the perfect place to spot a moose, caribou or brown bear. The Salmon Catcher Lodge is not just a comfortable place to sleep and play, but they make it easy to schedule almost anything your family wants to do during your time in Kenai. That makes it a great choice for a memorable vacation in Alaska.

Wonderful Girls Weekend

by 84KimB

We were able to secure a 2 night stay last weekend at the Fabulous Salmon Catcher Lodge! We had a wonderful unit with a kitchen, dining table, living room and 2 bedrooms, and a full bath. Everything we needed for a Girls weekend. The exercise room with hot tub, sauna, equipment and massage chairs was Great! We drove to the beach out by Nikiski and had a wonderful walk. This was a great property and we hope to come back next year. It would be lovely if there was a dvd player, we brought some movies to watch but ended up just doing some crafts when we couldn't watch them.

Personal, clean as a can be, at an excellent price

My wife and i stayed at the Salmon Catcher Lodge this past July. It was off the beaten path, quiet, and an amazingly clean set of cabins. The one we stayed in had a bed for the two of us and very comfortable night's sleep. The cabin was comparable in price to a nearby motel -- yet we got so much more in terms of remoteness, friendly owners, cleanest place we stayed in all of Alaska, and kitchen to ourselves! I highly recommend staying at the Salmon Catcher Lodge.
