Lodging
“Long Rifle Lodge is within walking distance of our cabin. They have an excellent restaurant and bar, with a stunning view of the Matanuska Glacier. Both our cabin and the lodge were built in the 1970s, with help from the same creative neighbors, so you will see similarities in the woodwork. Long Rifle Lodge serves great burgers, burritos, and has vegetarian options. The lodge is decorated with the widest variety of taxidermied Alaskan animals that you will probably find on your trip to Alaska - great for taking selfies! They do close early, so do not wait til late in the evening to go there. ”

“Amazing experience. For $30 you can drive right to the Glacier and walk out onto the ice and see many wonders. No special gear needed. Bring shoes that can get a little muddy. ”

“Glacier View Adventures is an adventure tour company located a short drive from our cabin. They are at mile 99 on the Glenn Hwy, which is three miles from the cabin, toward Palmer. GVA is most well known for their zipline adventures, but they also provide ATV tours and helicopter tours. If you drive to their Mile 99 location, they sell pizza and coffee, and also have a visitor information center. You do not need to drive to Mile 99, as you can book their tours directly across the street from our cabin, at MICA Guides, as well, and MICA provides transportation to the Mile 99 location. ”

Mountain
“Glacier Park Road is a short drive from our cabin. It is a private road that leads to the Matanuska Glacier. Glacier Park Road is open in the summer months. The views of the glacier from Glacier Park Road are very nice. There is a gift shop at the bottom of the hill where you have to pay a fee and sign a waiver before you can continue driving all the way to the glacier. Guided glacier tours are also available from Matanuska Glacier Adventures; check for more info at the gift shop. In the winter, only guided glacier tours are available.”

Natural Feature
“Stone Lady is a local mountain, two miles east of our cabin, with a neat Alaska Native legend. It is now often called "Lion's Head" because it supposedly looks like a lion's head, but because lions have no place in Alaska Native history, I prefer it's old, Native name, Stone Lady. I love the legend that it comes from. The AirBnB website keeps changing the name to Lion Head, as I write this guide, which I find annoying. Stone Lady is quite a photogenic mountain. Coming from the east, it looks rather like a "Thumbs Up." It is possible to hike to the top of Stone Lady for a sweeping view of the Matanuska Glacier, but beware that there are powerful cell towers now located there. ”

Campground
“If you are headed in this direction, go here. Especially on a sunny day, it provides views that are unique in Alaska, overlooking a stunning lake. If you drive up some of the off roads there are some amazing little hiking trails.”

“Sheep Mountain Lodge is perched on a mountainside overlooking Matanuska Glacier. The food is really good and you won't be sorry for the drive, especially in late Summer to early Fall. If you feel like an extra adventure you can take a side road and get access to literally walk on the glacier. It costs a little bit for the access but it's worth it.”
