Guest Testimonial

"Such a gorgeous setting, gorgeous place and Kevin & Sheila are the best host! They made the most delicious brisket and all the fixings. It was so good I couldn't stop eating. Our room was spacious and so comfortable. Kevin & Sheila have made this place an amazing destination for whatever type of outing you can think of. Sitting around the fire visiting and having such a good time with great friends was a great part of our evening too. We absolutely loved everything and plan on this being a regular relaxing escape for us. Highly recommend this to all!!! Thank you to Kevin & Sheila for everything!!!"

A Lifetime of Memories Created Here!

Activities galore!

Alaska's Heritage Lodge is a peaceful quiet lakefront retreat and gathering place. We specialize in Alaska family vacations for young and old alike. We are off the beaten path on gorgeous Crystal Lake in beautiful Willow, Alaska, and a short 35 minute drive from Talkeetna. We are on 4 lakefront acres that are easily accessible by vehicle by paved road winter or summer.  You can also fly in by bush plane on floats in the summer and skis in the winter. The lodge has 5 rooms and 3 bathrooms and can sleep 22 guests in beds. Willow is the most amazing wilderness playground anywhere! We wanted something that would have the ability to host summer AND winter guests and events.  With 250 miles of groomed winter trails the Backcountry of Alaska can be accessed right from our property by snowmachine, cross country skis, fat tire bike, or just going for a winter walk on the lake. We chose this place over all others because we are so strategically located close to EVERYTHING. Denali Park, Talkeetna, The Deshka River, (Salmon Fishing) hiking, biking, snowmobiling, everything Alaskan! The Iditarod Trail and race goes right by us on Crystal Lake! Nothing else will offer you all of this. Come enjoy it with us!

We are honored to welcome the Alaska Division of Forestry to Alaska’s Heritage Lodge. These people are amazing! They have come with so much stuff! And we were ready. They have the entire place for 32 days. Some of them will stay in the lodge and some of them choose to be in tents or hammocks. This will be their home for the next month. Sheila and I go out of our way to make sure that it is above and beyond :-) ... See MoreSee Less

They could not be in better hands

So I have been wanting to do this for a long time. I am always asking myself. How do I take it to the next level? Sometimes it takes me a while to receive the inspiration. I won't move until I see it. I finally received my inspiration! What would it look like if someone could literally walk through the lodge without ever stepping foot in it? I mean you know? From all over the world. They are in the UK or wherever, and they walk through the lodge before they book? How incredible would that be? Looking to the future and to future bookings. I made this a mission. And here is the result. This is what is called a "highlight reel" from a 3D virtual tour I did today. It takes you through the entire lodge step by step. This is actually 3D. So much of what you hear now is a "virtual tour" then they walk through the property with a cell phone. That is not 3D. There is a substantial amount of equipment, experience, and know how that went into this production. This is the result of all of that. Also, here is the actual 3D tour. This is now embedded into all of our online booking platforms, including our own website which is where we get most of our bookings. Click to follow where you want to go. It was hilarious. Our resident squirrel and one Sandhill Crane made it into the tour! See if you can find them 🙂
