Welcome to Alpine Creek Lodge! We are an Alaska Lodge located at mile 68 of the Denali Highway, and we are open year round for you! We have spent most of our lives in Alaska. Claude started out in Fairbanks as a kid, and then attended college at Sheldon Jackson College in Sitka Alaska. Claude has lived in many Alaskan communities, including Fairbanks, Homer, Kodiak, Dutch Harbor, Ketchikan, Craig, Wrangell, Juneau, Pelican, Yakutat, Soldotna and Kenai. Jennifer grew up in Anchorage and then went back to Delaware for a few years with family and to attend college. Our son, Bob, was born in 2003, and he is truly enjoying the lifestyle of remote living at the lodge.
There are so many opportunities here that in a lifetime you couldn’t do them all. We want to welcome you to what we believe is the TRUE Alaska adventure. No long lines, no crowds, and best of all no buses! We want to share with you the things that we get to experience every day. The gorgeous scenery, the wildlife, the fresh air, in essence how Alaska was meant to be seen. Up close and personal. We would love it if you would come join us for some adventure, great friends, great food, and our genuine Alaskan hospitality. Thank you for considering Alpine Creek Lodge!
Claude and Jennifer Bondy
We have a restaurant that is open for anyone to stop in and have a great meal while traveling the Denali Highway. Chef Chrissy is an amazing cook who prepares all of our meals and desserts. Breakfast and Dinner are all you can eat and served family style. Lunches are made to order with the choices of Hamburgers, Grilled Cheese, Deli Sandwiches, Chili and Homemade Soups.
It is that time of the year again!! Time to apply for your permits! You only have until Dec 16 so better hurry! Here is the link for applying.

Eric Menck I will have to remember to get mine in but it will have to wait till next week to get em done. I am preparing to leave for a trip back to Vermont to see my 74 year old mom who was in a serious car accident this past Tuesday Morning. She was driving about 55 MPH when a car coming the opposite direction crossed the center lane and hit her car head on! She is in the Hospital and will be for the next 2-3 weeks before being moved to a rehab facility…..If all goes well! She is in the operating room today for the second time since the accident. She sustained a broken left femur, Both ankles and one heel badly broken, and C 6&7, Vertebrae in her neck fractured. The first surgery Tuesday she had 2 rods put into the broken Femur to help it heal in right alignment as well as surgery on her right ankle and heel. The surgery today is on that same right ankle and heel. The left ankle looks like it just needs a cast, and the 2 vertebrae in her neck so far are looking like she will just need to be in a cervical collar to help those heal. Docs have said she will not walk again for at least 3 months if all goes well in surgeries and rehab. it's going to be a long haul for her, but she is a tough old bird and if anyone can make it through all this and come out good it is her! I get Back to Vermont on Monday and will be there for 10 days and that's when I will do my permit applications. I will be hoping to see some more photos from up your way at the lodge while I am back there!!!

Ed Lehman Claude, don't know where you get traps or sale furs. Just info, Boondocks in Eagle river has a great line of traps and also deal in fur.
November 21, 2013 at 3:57 pm
Alpine Creek Lodge Ed, thanks for the note! Jen stopped by to grab a few items. I need to get in there myself. I may take them some marten later this season.

November 21, 2013 at 9:18 pm
Jon Freeman Sure you can, stir fry them. They make nice clothing as well and add some extra income to a family that lives completely off the grid 67 miles down a road that is only open a short time each summer.
