Smokin Joe's

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Smokin Joe's a couple of weeks ago and have nothing but wonderful things to say! The location was absolutely beautiful, close to town, and Arlene (owner) was such a pleasure to work with. The cabin itself was clean, extremely comfortable and had everything that we needed. We spent most evenings sitting on the patio watching the eagles, ducks, and moose in the yard and field directly across from the cabin. If we make another trip to Soldotna, this will be where we stay.

Smokin Joe's on the Kenai River

  • 5 of 5

Looking forward to our trip back up to Alaska and the Kenai River this August.

Always a great time at Smokin Joe's. Perfect setting right on the river, lots to see and do. The cabins are very comfortable and have everything you need. It's fun to see the moose right in the yard and the eagles that fly over.

Love spending a day in Homer with great shops and restaurants on the Spit.

Smoking Joe's

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Smoking Joes last September for a week, the nature was great. Moose with 2 calves walking in the

beautifully landscaped yard was so exciting. The cabins have everything you need and were very clean. Took the trip down to Homer the views were breath taking, so much to see up close in Alaska. We would stay again.

Smokin Joe's is the BEST!

  • 5 of 5

Over the last 20 years we have stayed at Smokin Joe's several times and would not go with any other lodge! Arlene will take great care of all your needs to make your stay a great memory. We have seen the rest and consider it the best. To sit on the dock after a day of fishing just watching the river is a perfect way to relax and end the day. The condos are clean, modern, comfortable and have plenty of room.

Smokin' Joe's Lodge on the Kenai River

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend staying at Smokin' Joe's. Arlene is very accommodating, friendly, knows the area extremely well, and her top priority is ensuring you enjoy your stay. The condos are very clean with plenty of room. The property borders the Kenai River and is surrounded by nature. Even though it is in the country it is close to town with good places to eat and shop for things like groceries. There are many things to do including awesome fishing, breath-taking scenery, hiking, nature preserves, museums, and more. We like Smokin' Joe's so much we are returning to enjoy another stay.
