Relax on the deck while watching the deep green glacial water flow by, or enjoy the fantastic fishing of the Kenai River. This property features a view of the water, a smokehouse for your freshly caught salmon, freezer space, and a fully fenced-in yard.

During the salmon runs you can catch 4 different species of salmon from the dock. The rainbow trout and dolly varden char fishing is fantastic from this huge, private fishing platform.

The deck at the river has a BBQ grill, a covered fish cleaning area, a sunken fire pit in the deck, and tables and chairs for a dozen of your best fishing buddies! Located 1/4 mile above the Soldotna Bridge allows visitors walking distance to shopping, fine dining, and entertainment.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Mindy grew up on the Kenai River chasing salmon and trout with her fishing guide father. She was running a powerboat before she could drive a car. She bought her first boat and began guiding in her early 20's. She soon became a very respected guide in this industry. She always has a smile and loves sharing this amazing river with others. Reubin followed his love of fishing to Alaska. At 21 he graduated college, packed his bags and hitchhiked up the Alcan Highway. After guiding for a 4 star lodge on the Kenai Peninsula, he bought a truck and boat and went out on his own to make it or break it! Mindy and Reubin met on the Kasilof River --12 miles south of Soldotna, became good friends, fishing buddies, and after many years, dated and married. We have three amazing sons Noah (4), Anthony (3) and Owen (1). We are blessed with such a happy lifestyle and profession that we truly enjoy!

                  Why the Owner Chose Soldotna:
                  We have been fishing on the Kenai for a long time and have always enjoyed picking up clients from our boats at this location. When this property came on the market, we never guessed that two hard working fishing guides would be able to afford such an investment. After fine tuning our business plan and taking advantage of all time low interest rates, we took the plunge! We have totally remodeled the interior of the lodge and plan to continue investing in our family’s future and our guests comfort.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                  Perhaps the greatest benefit of our property is the location. Having an incredible fishery like the Kenai River literally in your back yard allows your family and/or group to fish in a completely private atmosphere. Another benefit is the ability to walk into Soldotna to visit the many attractions and eateries. Having a huge deck with a sunken fire pit encourages guests to spend time together enjoying the great Alaskan outdoors!
