About
Alaska Horsemen Lodge is an Alaskan destination nestled in the mountains of Cooper Landing. Adjacent to the tranquil Kenai Lake, it is a scenic 100-mile drive south of Anchorage. Our small ranch offers horseback riding, cozy cabins, wall tents, and RV parking on spacious grounds accompanied with comfortable common areas and beautiful mountain views. Known for its unique location for hosting corporate retreats, culture/educational camps, family reunions, adventure travel groups and a great base camp for the leisure traveler. The horses provide a calming and enjoyable backdrop and trail riding is one of the many activities guests find most enjoyable. Your host Alex Kime has been adventuring in Alaska over 50 years (but he is still a spring chicken!!!) and numerous testimonies share guests experience true Alaskan hospitality at our family's Alaska Horsemen Lodge. Our cozy Alaskan wood cabins and wall tent cabins make for a comfortable and memorable glamping experience. Folks mention often the serenity they experience at our small ranch. Our cabins and wall tents can sleep around 20 people. There are tents and camp sites for another 20. There is a spacious area for RV parking, all with mountain views. Our location, on the east end of Cooper Landing, is walking distance to good fishing Quartz Creek, the Kenai Beach, Quartz Creek Campground and the Sunrise Inn Café and lounge. We often watch sheep and goat on nearby Mt. Langille while sitting around the fire pit at the Pavilion. A truly unique and serene experience in an Alaskan pioneer setting.

Great experience
Aug 2020 • Family
Alex greeted us very warmly and let us in the hands of one of his guides who took great care of our young children and us. The guide taught us the basics and set us up very safely, then spent the entire ride showing us around and entertaining my kids who did not stop asking questions :)

The trail was beautiful, with some stops by the river to look for salmons and fishermen, and then by the lake. I highly recommend these guys for horseback riding in the area! Thank you Alex and team!

Excellent way to see local countryside!
Sep 2019
I enjoyed my stay and riding here. The cabins are warm and cosy. The facilities to cook and relax in are excellent. The wranglers are very friendly and interesting. Happily telling you about the local plants and scenery. The horses are well behaved and good to ride. I think they are the best way to get out and view the local scenery be it the woods, lake or mountain. Safety hats and wet weather gear available to borrow.

Nice ride for the entire family.
Aug 2019 • Family
Nice horses, not too stuck to the trail. Very well mannered horses, a nice shady trail to the gorgeous Kenai Lake, and back through lush forest. We did the 2 hour. The owner is a kind, older gentleman. I enjoyed meeting him too. Our guides were college students who are very knowledgeable about the horses and the area. This was definitely a highlight for the kids, who all enjoyed the time on the horses.

A fun stop on our vacation!

We loved our stay and trail ride with Alaska Horsemen. The cabin was clean and comfortable, and our private horse ride was such a fun experience. We saw a huge moose bull along the way! Our wrangler, Colton, was a fun guide for our trip.

GREAT RIDE
Jun 2018 • Couples
My husband and I took a 3day 2 night wilderness horse pack trip in June. The wranglers were wonderful, the scenery was beautiful and the horses were great. I would love to do this trip again only for a longer time. I would recommend this trip to anyone who would like to go adventure riding.

Trying to describe a pack-trip with Alaska Horseman is like trying to define Love, the feeling you get when you’re in your Home surrounded by Family, or the view from your favorite Mountain Top. Like pictures, words just can’t describe to another person what you have experienced. If you think you want to take a day-ride, take an overnight trip. If you like the idea of an overnight trip, signup for a 4-day adventure. If you’re like me and thought 4-days in the mountains with horses would be enough, you’re going to want to stay a lifetime. This isn’t a glamping trip, yet you will be more than well taken care. Every detail is thought out and planned for, including the moments to find your inner-self, a connection with the mountains, or a camaraderie with the people, horses, and wildlife that share your space. Alex, is Alaska, guts and grit, with a soul that matches the grandeur of the landscape and an aura that will make you want to follow him anywhere, with ease. One with horses and mountains, true horseman, someone who can’t be captured with words. Joey, natural horseman, young spirit and old soul, kind and caring to the bone. Besides mastering his camp culinary skills and cowboy coffee, which matches perfectly with your surroundings, you can feel that Joey is sensing and watching everything around him to make everyone’s experience a life-long dream. When he speaks, you’re captivated by his humbleness and when he’s silent, your still drawn to his humbleness. He’s the kind of young man that knows you want a hot cup of coffee before you think it; who will do something without your knowing, that will make your moment better, safer, remembered. Randy, cowboy and conversationalist, subtle, and sometimes not, humor, a caring person that will draw you out if you’re willing, well read on many subjects of human nature. You’ll remember gatherings around the campfire with Randy and maybe he’ll convince you to go on a 500-mile cattle drive. Lastly, the horses, true mountain horses, that are a reflection of the Alaska Horsemen. It’s impossible not to connect with their being. You become one as you move through the trails, high mountain tundra, and rocky slopes. Like Alex, Joey, and Randy, they are looking out for you and they’ll help you experience some amazing things. Thank you for bringing my daughter and I closer together, for sharing a piece of you with us, we’re forever changed by Alaska. Hey, to Crocket and Winchester!

Relaxing and enjoyable!
Aug 2018 • Couples
This ride couldn't have been more perfect. Roan took my husband and me for a 2-hour + ride into the most peaceful forest and gorgeous mountain side we've seen. He was so helpful and informative about everything along the way. We are experienced riders and Roan did not make us feel like beginners (which has been our experience in the past at other locations). Also, we were given excellent rain gear to wear at the start which we ended up not needing due to the sun coming out. The day was glorious. Highly recommend!

Peaceful Ride
Jul 2018
Alex and guide, Roan, were fantastic with our great and grand kids (all 12 years old). Very nice outfitters, great horses and they catered to our group's needs. We had experienced and non-experienced riders and all felt welcomed. We would definitely recommend to anyone, first time riders or barrel racers!

Deep quiet found here
Jul 2018
Our wrangler brought us up a hill and into what felt like the deep woods with plenty of quiet and lots of natural beauty. Our wrangler gave clear instructions and prepared us well for our ride. We enjoyed our horses on this lovely ride. The other staff were helpful and playfully upbeat. The only down side was that we couldn't book in advance and it was difficult to reach the office.

This was an awesome stop. The owners let us park out RV on their property. They offered food, drinks, and a fire. The next day we went on a ride our guide, Joey. He was helpful, kind, and told us amazing historical facts and kept us interested the entire time. I would do this again, for sure!
