Lake Louise has been a recreational area since the 1940s used at that time mostly for hunting, fishing, and trapping. In the 70's, the army used Lake Louise as a recreational area and training center for cold climate survival. Today, populated by approximately 50 full time residents, the lake provides a relaxed, reclusive atmosphere mixed with a wide variety of outdoor activities for the whole family to enjoy.
Lake Louise Lodge built in 1953, by Tyonic Indians, is the oldest lodge on Lake Louise. The original lodge was built as a hunting cabin out of logs native to the area.
In 1957, the hunting cabin was converted into Lake Louise Lodge. Until 1987, the clientele who frequented the lodge used an outhouse for the restroom and the lake to take baths, as the season permitted.
Glen and Jayne Miles, long time Alaskans, transformed the original lodge from a 352 square foot cabin into a beautiful 4,350 square foot log complex while retaining the original hunting cabin in the center of the lodge. Visiting Lake Louise Lodge is truly a unique Alaskan experience.
John and Yvette Delaquito purchased the lodge from Glen and Jayne Miles in 2007, continuing the service to the community, tourists, and visitors from Alaska and the rest of the world.
