The Ranch

Sometimes we need to escape, put up our feet and take a breath of mountain fresh air. Welcome to Sunderland Ranch, your home away, offering rustic lodging, trail riding, hiking, arena rental, event space rental and wagon rides.

The wild beauty of Sunderland Ranch

Nestled at the foothills of Lazy Mountain, a 50-minute drive north of Anchorage, Alaska, is our remote homestead ranch waiting for you. Our rustic lodging on top of our horse barn is the perfect home away for those looking for a rural Alaskan ranch. Put your feet up or in a pair of stirrups and hit the trails around our beautiful 100-acre Sunderland ranch featuring elk, cattle and horses.

We celebrated our daughter's 7th birthday party at Sunderland Ranch. What a memorable experience! The horses and handlers were so wonderful. All the kids and kids at heart had plenty of ride time, and that scenery ... Just wow! There is no mistaking that these people have an incredible love and passion for people and what they do, and it made our time at the ranch unforgettable. We cannot wait to come back!! Thank you, Sunderland Ranch, for everything! Y’all are the best!!
