About Us

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.

Any big plans for the evening or weekend? It's been a busy week and looking forward to a relaxing and accomplishing weekend! I'm looking forward to eating moose ribs in the crock pot with a few side dishes. Travis is going sea duck hunting again and maybe even get some Harlequins with decoys we hand painted. Nothing like fresh sea duck on the grill wrapped in bacon, jalapenos, and cream cheese! Sounds like several customers are heading north to check out the snow and don't forget to swing by Alpine Creek Lodge Alaska for some hot food or at least some hot chocolate! Great place to stay and great people!! Well have a good one and talk to everyone Monday. We are only 12 days away from Christmas! -Lori-

Good morning and happy Friday! It's almost the weekend…time for some fresh powder riding and playing in the outdoors! Don't forget lots of snow up north near Alpine Creek Lodge Alaska and surrounding areas!! Travis is heading for more sea duck hunting and I will be working on the house and school. The joys of home ownership and being in a Masters program…not really but thankful for where I am in life! We wish everyone safe travels in this weekend for the group with Coastal Villages Region Fund that are flying in to train with us on CFMoto & Tohatsu Outboard. Well enough of my babbling, have a great day and stay warm out there. -Lori-

Good morning and happy Hump Day. Looks like we are blessed with another day of snow! I will post a few photos from up north, but they have been dumped up in Petersville, on the Denali at Alpine Creek Lodge Alaska Lodge, and surrounding areas. Looks like a great weekend to get those sleds ready for some fresh powder! Well any plans for the day? We are getting ready for a group of 18 mechanics from Coastal Villages Fund that we will be training on CFMoto & Tohatsu Outboards! Looking forward to meeting everyone and Dustin Gologergen's Native Alaskan Food!! Have a great day and stay tuned for exciting events, sales, and more! -Lori-

A great place to be and a great place to train dogs!

A great update from the Jeff King. "Lack of snow isn’t stopping the Husky Homestead team from hitting the trail and putting in some long hours training. We spent four days on the Denali Highway last week adding quite a few miles (over 800 miles) to the dogs’ tally for November. It seems the Denali Highway is the place to be for training right now – mushers from all over are making the trek to this wonderful place. One evening we counted 16 mushers and handlers, and over 100 dogs at Alpine Creek Lodge! It really is a blast to see so many teams on the trail.
The entire HH crew, even the dogs had Turkey Day off. ☺

This week we'll return to highway training, and get ready for December – the start to racing season! Until then, we’d like to say thank you to Redpaw for your continued support."
