Meet your hosts: Mark & Julie Burner
Our family recently took over the Soldotna B&B Trophy Lodge in late 2019, starting on a new journey that we knew would become the biggest adventure our family has been on yet. We bring a whole new level of commitment and energy to help maintain, grow, and improve the B&B and all our lodging opportunities. With Mark’s enthusiasm for the fishing world and Julie’s fine attention to detail, your stay with us will be comfortable, successful, and downright unforgettable.
The outstanding Guides, Lodge Personnel, Culinary team, and Office Staff remain as remarkable as ever. We offer the finest culinary experiences, as well as provide our clients with the most helpful, responsive customer service on the Kenai River and beyond.
Family Owned and Operated
We are truly a family-owned and operated business, and you will more than likely encounter our hard-working family unit during your stay. Our two girls, Emily and Grace, work hard to help make your stay fun and enjoyable; the family atmosphere is a huge reason that our clients return year after year. Once you stay with us, you will immediately become a part of our family! With the unique and broad connections we make with everyone that stay with us, our little slice of fishing heaven is suitable for everyone, from the reel-happy kid, to the experienced, elderly fisherman or woman.
