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.
In 2007 the lodge was sold from Jayne and Glen to their daughter and her husband John and Yvetter Delaquito. The Delaquitos continued to operate the lodge.
After almost fifteen more years of running the lodge John and Yvette decided to sell.
Harold and Windy Egan purchased the lodge in March of 2022. Long time Alaskans who raised their two children in Alaska after Harold retired from the Army. Currently they are operating the lodge with the help of their youngest daughter, her boyfriend and several great employees. There is a vast wealth of knowledge on Alaska, Alaskan activities and not to mention hunting, trapping and fishing stories to be heard. Sharing what Alaska means to them and the wonderful things this state has to offer will put a smile on all of their faces.
Their passion for true Alaskan adventure will carry on the legacy that is Lake Louise Lodge.
