We were very pleased with our stay at the King Salmon Log Home at Serenity Lodge. The setting was beautiful. The lodge is well maintained and has a warm and friendly atmosphere. The lake is awesome as well. My extended family, all ten of us, were pleasantly surprised by many things. To begin with, Katie and Elizabeth were very helpful in getting me information about activities in the area. I relied on Katie almost exclusively in planning my trip and she was right on target in all of her recommendations. Secondly, we very much appreciated the attention to detail at the lodge. Everything we could have needed was there. They have several freezers for fish. They had canoes and a paddleboat for the lake. Most importantly, they got all the little things right. I did not have to worry about paper products, linens, dishes, (they even had a slow cooker) or coffee. They even had marshmallow sticks, newspaper for starting the fire and wood a plenty. The beds were very comfortable and the heavy shades on the windows made it easy to sleep in the land of the midnight sun. I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone visiting the area. It was ideally situated for fishing, sightseeing in Homer and Seward and doing the glacier boat tour of the Kenai fjords. We had a great time. It was the trip of a lifetime.

“The best, most comfortable place to stay!”
We rented the entire lodge for our short 5 day trip. It was myself & my husband, my sister-in-law & father-in-law and I have to say, this lodge is awesome! It was very private for all of us, and very close to where we went fishing. The lodge was very spacious and super clean. We really didn't need to rent the whole lodge for the just the four of us, as I didn't realize how big it really is. You have every amenity you need and Katie and David were very helpful in getting our fishing trip set up, getting all of the information we needed quickly and being there for any questions that we had. If we get to go again, we are definitely staying longer and doing more fishing! Everything was great here with only one exception: at the time we were there, no one could fish on the lake outside the lodge. Other than that, we had a great time and I would most definitely stay here again and refer anyone I know to do the same! You won't regret it! - GypsySkye

“Gorgeous location, nice rooms, gracious hosts!”
The owners, Dave and Katie, are very friendly and attentive to their guests' comfort. They called us several times before our trip to make sure we knew how to get there and to see if we needed anything. When a highway closure delayed our arrival by 7 hours, she made sure the room was left open and that the lights were on for us upon arrival. Later the next morning when she saw that we were up she checked in with us to see if we needed anything and invited us to make ourselves at home not only in our cabin but also to feel free to use the other amenities at the lodge. Our cabin, situated at the edge of a picturesque lake inhabited by loons and other waterfowl, was clean throughout, comfortable, quiet, and private. It was equipped with a cozy King size bed, TV, stove, microwave, refrigerator, sink , BBQ, pots & pans, dishes and utensils. It was stocked with hot cocoa and oatmeal for a quick and easy breakfast, too. A washer & dryer for laundry was available in the back of a nearby cabin and if you wanted, there was a freezer for storing fish and several canoes to use on the lake. Lots of companies talk about providing good service to their customers but Dave and Katie follow through and provide superior service at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend the Alaska Serenity Lodge to anyone contemplating a stay in the Soldotna area. - davidnbeth

Review from Travel with Teens and Tween 

Close to everything relaxing like views, moose, and fishing, but far away from noise, stress, and crowds. Our group of 8 rented the entire Main Lodge - it was perfect. They even have vacuum sealer in garage for you to seal your catch from the Kenai. Moose by the hot tub, rabbits everywhere - beautiful, relaxing place with all the modern amenities. – Valrico, Florida

The Alaska Serenity Lodge was a perfect a weekend getaway from Anchorage. Arriving late on a Friday night we were greeted by dozens of bunny rabbits and the onsite handyman (who provided free beer!!). Our first impression of the property was the fantastic location on the lake and the breathtaking views. We were taken directly to our private cabin and were shown where everything was located on the property. The cabin was new, spotless and cozy, yet large enough to provide some privacy. All we needed to bring with us were clothes and food, everything else was provided! There is a hot tub, canoe, hiking, fishing, everything we could want. Friday night Katie and her daughters joined us for a large bonfire complete with smores :-). This is such a peaceful area, yet not too far from Soldotna for restaurants/nightlife. Even though Dave has connections for guided fishing & hunting trips; we didn't book anything this time. However, will definitely be coming back in 2011! – Anchorage, Alaska

I recently stay at the Alaska Serenity Lodge in Soldotna AK for three weeks. From the moment I arrived, I was impressed by the views and the Hosts, Dave, Katie and their family are very gracious and friendly. The accommodations are very nice and Dave and Katie have added several conveniences, such as Wi-Fi, washer/dryers, BBQ's, a hot tub, and canoe for the lake to name a few.
I stayed in the Mallard Cabin which had a small kitchen, living room, bed room and bathroom. It was perfectly sized for a couple or a couple with small children. The cabin was well equipped and comfortable. 
Alaska Serenity Lodge is conveniently located five minutes from Soldotna and the Kenai River. There was plenty to do in my off time, I was fortunate enough to catch a 100 Halibut during my stay. I have traveled all over the world and put Alaska Serenity Lodge at the top of my list for all around great places. – Terrebonne, Oregon 

I traveled to the Peninsula with my brothers and father for his 70th Birthday for fishing and sightseeing. We had a wonderful trip and the biggest reason was our stay at AK Serenity Lodge. The Richardsons are the perfect hosts. Very friendly and accommodating. The lodge and views are beautiful. It had everything we needed or wanted. Very close to Soldotna - but you feel hundreds of miles away. We will stay there again and recommend it highly to anyone. – Valley City, N. Dakota

I really loved my stay here at Alaska Serenity Fishing Lodge. It is located right on Denise Lake a very short drive from Soldotna, and near great fishing. We were very late in checking in, and the owners stayed to welcome me. That really shows they care about their business and they are professional and friendly. If you were going on a fishing expedition, this would be a very good option as it has several amenities: fish freezers, a LARGE outdoor jacuzzi (clean and HOT!), most cabins have kitchens, and it even has a canoe for communal use (they have new lifejackets in variety of sizes.) It looks like they have great options for both small and big parties. A large group could rent a whole house, and they have private, 2-person cabins for those on a quiet getaway. I would definitely stay here again. – Seattle, Washington

From the first moment that I arrived to the Serenity Lodge I knew that I was going to have a great trip. The look was exactly what I would picture for an Alaskan lodge. I stayed in the Back Country Cabin which was perfect. I had the ability to cook my own fish in the cabin and relax afterwards down by the quite lake with a cocktail. The accommodations weren't the only thing that impressed me, Dave and Katie were great people. They made me feel more like a visiting friend than a guest. All together I had an amazing time and can't wait to plan my next trip! – Anchorage, Alaska

You wanna talk about "making memories"! My family traveled from Oregon to stay and fish in the greatest fishery. We found this semi secluded lodge just outside of the quaint little town of Soldotna. The hospitality was awesome, the fishing was great and the memories I have made with my family will never be forgotten. I am planning my next trip with the lodge owners, but this time instead of 4 days, we are planning on staying two weeks. We had such a great time! Dave and Katie Richardson are the best at what they do. If you are into making family memories, contact them for the stay of a lifetime! P.S. The 132 pounds of salmon fillets made the trip even better! – Medford, Oregon

My friends and I go on a fishing trip once a year to somewhere special. We traveled from California And Washington to Alaska. Alaska Serenity Lodge is the complete experience in travel, rustic in nature, sitting on a private lake, with fly out options, and a variety of guide options. They made sure we had everything from rental car, the best guides in the area, and even options to pack and ship our catch home. They sent us pre trip packages at least 4 months in advance so we could plan on what gear to bring and what to expect in weather, We stayed in the main lodge. It is a combination of rustic in appearance, with all of the modern stuff you could want, including internet, and flat screens, to a fire pit by the lake if you just want to unwind after a big day on the water. The lodge was clean, the interior decorated in local decor--It was perfect in every way. Our hosts, The Richardsons made sure we had everything we needed, and were always available for any special requests. We are planning our next trip to Alaska Serenity right now-- It was awesome-- oh yea and we caught some monster fish !! – Gig Harbor, Washington
