Spectacular views of Denali, the Sleeping Lady, Chugach and the Talkeetna ranges are right outside your door where you can enjoy a stunning sunset on the patio or decks. This serene setting is beautiful and peaceful, the only sounds your will hear are float planes and pleasure boating. Wildlife is abundant with lake water fowl, bald eagles, sandhill cranes, moose and more.

You can relax on property or use it as a central base for exploring the surrounding areas. World class fishing is a short drive north and Denali is just 4 hours from the lodge. This area is home to many Iditarod dog kennels, where you can visit the mushers and ride on a dog sled. Life long Alaskan owners living on property can help guide you to all the activities available in the area.

The grounds are perfect for weddings, parties, corporate retreats and more. The lodge has a kitchen / dining room, living room, full bath, exercise / game room and four themed bedrooms for your comfort. There is a queen size aerobed available for use.

Step out your front door where there is plenty of seating room on the outdoor patio with a 6 burner BBQ, Cedar play set for the kids, and fire pit for those romantic evenings. The large deck on the upper level provides additional seating and lounge chairs for sunbathing and relaxing.

During the winter season enjoy snow machining from your door. The Big Lake trail system is just a 1/4 mile away. Ice fishing, cross country skiing, ice skating, or sledding down our hill are just a few things you can do. Watch the Northern Lights from the patio and chat around the fire pit. The Lodge at Eagle Rock is your ultimate winter and summer destination.

About Michael and Desiree Humes

Michael and Desiree Humes are lifelong Alaskans who want to share their truly Alaskan home with people who enjoy lake life in the Last Frontier. We were both transplanted here from California as adolescents and have become the down to earth Alaskans we are today. We have three beautiful daughters and eight grand children.

Michael and Desiree Humes purchased this lodge in 2002

Why Michael and Desiree Humes chose Alaska

The property is located a short drive from all the activities. The weather here is almost always sunny and warm and you have an entire lake to play on. During the winter we enjoy a good amount of snow and the Big Lake trail system is a 1/4 mile away. Snow machining, ice fishing, cross country skiing, ice skating, and Northern Lights are just a few things to do.

Great place for a family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding in Palmer, and this was a wonderful place to stay for our extended family. We played flag football on the huge lawn, jumped in the lake, barbecued, and soaked in the hot tub. Enjoyed every minute! The downstairs has four bedrooms with queens. Air mattresses were provided for additional guests over 8. There's only one bathroom, but extra porta-potties were available. The owner was friendly and responsive. Terrific memories of our first trip to Alaska. Thank you!

We stayed at this beautiful lake house for the weekend for my wedding. It was exactly what I had in mind and the owners were amazing and helpful in every way. The house was beautiful and clean. However, we would have loved to rent out the entire house instead of just the bottom floor.

Such a wonderful space for a wedding, the space, the accommodations, the natural backdrop..

  • 5 of 5

Incredible space for a wedding, being able to stay at your venue is the most amazing thing, I wouldn't of had the wedding of my dreams otherwise. They were very accommodating and reasonable. Gorgeous house, gorgeous grounds and soaking in the hot tub after a long two days of prep and wedding was just the best bonus!! I highly recommend checking out The Lodge at Eagle Rock for your next event, wedding, or family vacation to Alaska! You won't be disappointed.

Excellent wedding venue!

  • 5 of 5

We held our daughter's wedding here in June. The setting was beautiful and the hosts were very helpful. The lawn is huge - we had enough space to set up five tents, a dance floor, seating for the ceremony and yard games. And that was just the lower level. The kid-guests loved having the swing set to play on. Mike helped us get the parking organized, and there was plenty of room for everyone's cars. It was great to have it for the whole weekend, and have plenty of time to set up and take down. We were very pleased with the venue.
