Given that there are so few ways to travel deep into Denali and stay without camping out for any length of time, Kantishna Roadhouse fills the bill. The bus ride in and out of the park from Kantishna together with staying comfortably at a spot some 90 miles into the depths of Denali made the stay absolutely worthwhile. Rooms are... More

We stayed there for 2 nights. It's very remote and you go along some narrow roads in a bus. It took me back in time when tv's were rare and you just went for quite walks in the woods, played cards, or sat around a fireplace telling stories. Very nice, but the walls are thin, so watch what you say.... More

I booked two nights (mandatory minimum) at the Kantishna Roadhouse for the third week in August of this year. A single room for two people was nearly $1000 per night, all food included. First the website talks about their comfortable shuttle bus....it's an old school bus which you ride for 6 1/2 hours over a rutted, mostly one-lane road. We... More

This is wilderness like most of us don't get to experience. And with it is good food, very good service from interesting people with some activities. The bus ride in is like getting a degree in the outdoors. Kirsty has been driving this road for a long time and has an interesting relationship with her bus Charley. Her narration is... More

We took the time to make the 6-7 hour one way bus ride from the entry of the Denali National Park to the proverbial end of the road to stay at the Kantishna Roadhouse for 2 nights in September of 2013. The ride in/out itself is a wonderful experience with great views, ample stops and abundant wild life viewing. The... More

Kantishna Roadhouse is a miniature version of the grand lodges in parks such as Yellowstone and The Grand Canyon. It consists of a main building, some 40 duplex cabins, and outbuildings, including a rescue shelter for sled dogs. The main building has a reception area, a comfortable lobby, a gift shop, two dining rooms, and a decent bar. Breakfast and... More

The narrated five hour bus ride from Denali rail depot to the roadhouse is the highlight of the journey. Kirsty had a wonderful sense of humor and keen eye identifying the wildlife. My suggestion is to sit on the driver’s side on the way to Kantishna. The Kantishna Roadhouse itself is not a reason to visit Denali backcountry. The accommodations... More

...IS the end of the road, well almost! As part of a 3 week active vacation in Alaska my husband and I booked 3 nights at the Roadhouse and I'm glad we did, because this place is REMOTE. Having 2 full days there off set the very lengthy bus ride( 7hours?) through the park, so I would not advise taking... More

This was the first stop on a one-week tour. Since it was part of a tour package, I cannot comment on value. We stayed for two nights in the available duplex cabin lodging. Accommodations were fine -- clean and adequate. Walls seemed to be paper-thin; even low conversational tones could be heard next door. Guides were enthusiastic and personable. An... More
