We stayed for four nights in early June, 2010. The lodge is at the Kantishna end of the road inside Denali National Park. Room was not luxurious but fine for where you are and what you do there. Food was excellent and staff was very helpful. No wine served here but you can bring your own. Excellent naturalist programs were... More

If you like peace and quiet, a remarkable landscape, great company, great food, and plumbing to go with it, look no further. North Face Lodge made our trip to Alaska a special one for this and many more reasons. From the moment they pick you up at the rail depot, to the drop off 4 days later, the staff make... More

After extensive research online trying to plan our AK adventure, my aunt and I found North Face Lodge. Based on the reviews from trip advisor, we booked our 3 days (the indoor plumbing was the deciding factor). The bus ride out to the lodge was long-there's no way around it, but filled with frequent stops for wildlife (plentiful) and bathroom... More

My husband and our two 20-something children had a most extraordinary stay here. We opted for this indoor plumbing hotel, although the sister hotel up the road, looked charming with its individual cabins and wooden stoves (and outhouses). These two are virtually the only in-park accomodations available and that makes them enormously more interesting than the hotels situated at the... More

We stayed for 4 nights at North Face Lodge. It was an incredible experience and one I would do again in a heartbeat. The staff, especially the naturalist guides, are all fantastic. They were well-informed, well-organized and able to provide a completely interesting wilderness experience to varied group of guests. We hiked for 3 days with their talented and trained... More

We had a great stay at the North Face Lodge. We were here for three days. The rooms are very rustic, but have their own bathrooms. The rooms are kind of small, but you really don't spend a lot of time in your room anyway. The staff here was very professional and made you feel very much at home. The... More

North Face Lodge is the ideal location to go to if you want to hike, enjoy Denali, watch the animals or even just sit and relax. It can be difficult to get to as the bus takes 8-9 hours to go the 90 miles but that is because it stops multiple times enroute to allow the passengers to look at... More

My husband and I, and four adult family members spent three nights at North Face Lodge during our June visit to Alaska. We had finished a cruise through the Inside Passage, and visited Anchorage and Seward prior to our trip to Denali. All six of us expressed great appreciation for the beauty of this Lodge, the service of the staff,... More
