Special place on the Kenai River

EVERYTHING we dreamed it would be!!!

I grew up fishing the Kenai River every weekend, but had not been there in 30 years. My husband and I were looking for a place on the river that was special and we definitely found it with Ron and Denise at Eagle Head Cabins! I have traveled all over the world and have never had the hospitality that I did with Ron and Denise. They say they will do whatever it takes to make your stay great and they are not kidding! First the cabin we stayed in was the Eagle Perch, which has two bedrooms and places to sleep in the living room. Since it was only my husband and I, we had the choice between a tempurpedic mattress or a pillow top mattress. We chose the pillow top in the loft and our view from our bed was looking right at the Kenai River. The cabin, and their whole resort area, was immaculate….the setting overlooking the river is breathtaking! Having said all that, what truly set this place WELL above any other cabin we have ever stayed in was the hospitality we received from Ron and Denise. Within about 1 minute of meeting them we felt that we had known then forever….and when we left, we felt like we were saying goodbye to our grandparents. They are two very, very special people and we enjoyed every minute with them. The first day we were there, we had booked our own fishing guide on the Kenai and came home empty handed. Ron knew we had been excited about cooking a fresh fish for dinner that night so he took us down to the river and within less than 5 minutes, he had caught our dinner. Not only did he catch our dinner, but he also brought from his house everything we would need to cook it on the grill, and instructed us on how to make the most amazing tasting salmon ever! We ate our dinner in their new outdoor pavilion, which is a nice addition to their establishment as well. Knowing we had not had success on our fishing trip, Ron got on the phone and called someone he trusted would provide us the fishing excursion we were hoping for. We did a fly-in fishing trip the next day, which he booked for us, and we both caught our limit and had a fabulous day. Ron went out of his way during our stay to teach us how to fish, fillet and even helped us process our own fish that we caught right off of his dock. He has everything you would ever need to catch a beautiful salmon from the dock. Before we left, Ron helped my husband pack up our fish to bring home. The next day, having arrived back home in Wisconsin, we received a phone call….from Ron….just checking to make sure we got home OK and that the fish made it in good shape too. Honestly, I could go on and on about Ron and Denise and their resort, but you really just need to experience it first hand. I have told everyone about our time there and how amazing these two are. We were so sad to leave knowing that we had to say goodbye to them…but we rest assured knowing we will be back one day!! I would give Eagle Head Cabins 10 stars if I could.
