The Sourdough Lodge was the perfect spot to make our extra-cozy and comfortable base camp while adventuring in Wrangell, Alaska.
We enjoyed a clean, large suite with a great floor plan. With more than enough room for our family of three, you could easily sleep a larger family in this room, containing three twin beds and a king-size bed. The private bathroom/shower area rocked—two showerheads made post-adventure wash up warm and luxurious! Spa-like even!
The outdoor area is so relaxing and serene with the immaculate manicuring of the landscape by Dar; you wouldn’t realize that you’re in Wrangell proper. Family-style meals are available with advance arrangements for a fee in the evenings, while complimentary light continental breakfasts greet you each morning. We were addicted to the yummy juice that we looked forward to each day! The communal living area and kitchen are vast and well-equipped. A shuttle van with prompt service from Bruce or Dar themselves will receive and drop visitors from the incoming ferries and smaller cruise ships – convenient for families with no wheels!
The bottom line: We were in town long enough to scope out other accommodations but would prefer to stay at the Sourdough based on our great experience and the tranquil setting. You won’t find a Super 8 or Holiday Inn here, but in lieu of a chain hotel, the Old Sourdough Lodge has it all for families! You won’t miss any of the mainstream stuff anyway! You will also fall in love with a large orange cat that warmed our families’ hearts!
Disclosure: My family complimentary lodging during our stay in Wrangell. This in no way changes our honestly expressed opinion.
