Lake Marie Lodge
I was prepared for almost any suitable accommodations in such a remote area 90 miles East of Anchorage and 50 miles from Mt. McKinley. This is big bear country and the land of too many Bald Eagles to count. It is almost completely untouched if not for the scattered homesteads over many hundred square miles. The brothers Wilson have rapidly become very famous in this remote part of the top of this little blue marble we live on.
The Lodge sits on one of the tallest peaks in the area and the view of Mt. McKinley is extraordinary and unbelievable. The main lodge is still under construction on the top floors. The accommodations and the meals are superb. Dave and John Wilson have pulled off quite a magical feat. Large picture windows and perfectly finished wood framing highlight the main cabin dining/living room. Scattered around the lodge are bearskins, bear skulls, fly tying table and all the comforts of home. The meals were so tasty thanks to Amanda.
