Loved staying here! Very peaceful, beautiful site overlooking the Kenai river! We had the breakfast plan and the food was superb! The accommodations were exceptionally clean and comfortable! Brett and Clarissa were very gracious hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. Brett booked a very successful salmon fishing trip for us! Making sure we even had the lucky... More

My son and I visited Alaska for the first time this past month and we had a fantastic time...including our two nights at Kenai Magic Lodge. Our cabin was clean, comfortable and well appointed...the location is ideal. The owner Clarissa was very welcoming and went out of her way to connect us with a local fishing guide that took us...

I have now spent two consecutive summer vacations at Kenai Magic Lodge and all I can say is that this lodge is a MUST SEE if visiting the Kenai Peninsula! For an fishermen/women out there, it is located directly on the Kenai River and has a huge stretch of fish-able areas. It is also located on the side of the... More

When my husband and I finally reached our destination - Kenai Magic Lodge - we were pleasantly surprised by our cabin, cabin #1, which had a view overlooking the Kenai River with the beautiful mountains of Alaska in the background. The cabin was very clean and furnished nicely with all the comforts of home. The large king size bed and... More

I do not believe there is a better lodge to stay at in Alaska. Clarissa, the owner will do everything possible to insure you have a wonderful vacation no matter what you wish to do. The cabins are fantastic with everything a person could want. For a real treat book the stay with the meals package. The food is 5... More

We have fished and hunted all over alaska and many other states and this place was a real treat. The rates are comparable or less than most of the local motels and twice the ammenities and hospitality. Private river front access made this place over the top. We caught limit after limit of sockeye salmon along with dolly varden and... More

This place was a total rip off!! The cabins were beyond filthy and smelled like old fishermen had been cooped up inside for months! There was no new linen provided the entire week we were there!

I give Kenai Magic a 5 star rating based on what we saw other properties in the general vicinity to consist of, and this lodging, in my opinion, was first rate. Alaska in general seems to be a very rustic state, so don't expect any lodge experience on the Kenai to provide you with Omni or Marriott style accomodations. If... More
