We stayed in cabin 2 one night, it had the necessities and we have no complaints. It's a good price, and maybe 20 mins away from Denali's park gates. It has wi-fi, although at cabin 2 it's hit or miss since it's a bit further away from the office. No breakfast at this one- but stop at the Perch across... More

My daughter and I stayed here three nights in Cabin #5 in July. The furnishings are basic, but you do have a refrigerator and microwave and coffee is available in the office. Staff was very nice and helpful. Wi-fi was a little weak, and we were near the office. We had a bathroom in our cabin, but it had the... More

We stayed in cabin 5 for one night in July. The cabin was okay--the beds were reasonably comfortable and the bathroom was okay, although the shower was very small. But the log walls were dusty, the carpet was dirty (especially under the beds), and there was lots of visible fiberglass insulation in all the cracks between the logs. We paid... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in June. Just two of us and we rented Cabin #5. The staff was friendly, the beds were made daily, and it was quite comfortable. It's about 15 miles from Denali NP but we saw wildlife each day on the way to and from the Park. Our cabin was also quiet...important for us! There... More

My sister and I stayed here 2 nights and we were not impressed. The cottage is mediocre at best. First day we arrived and when we opened the door the smell of butane about knocked us over. I had to go to the office and request that they send someone down to look at it as there was no way... More

We can't wait to go back! There was a "resident moose" and her twins! Places around the grounds to relax around a fire or for a short hike! Love it!! I... More

Warm and well-crafted cabins, yet rustic, nestled in the woods at foot a majestic mountain, and with an easy 15 min drive to Denali Nat Park. We chose a cabin with showers/toilets in a separate building, shared by others. However, those were always kept clean and it didn't bother us at all to walk a few steps to the shower... More

Nothing fancy - but if you love to stay in cabins (and we do) then its a great little cabin. Very quite, peaceful and cabin number 4 backs up to the stream and its so relaxing to listen to the water. Very clean and comfortable. Wi Fi was so -so but that's to be expected. Location is convenient to Denali... More

The cabin was very cute and we had a good nights stay here. It is nothing fancy but had a very clean shared bathroom and showers. There was a delicious and fun pizza place right across the street that you can walk too. We even saw a lynx while we were sitting on our front porch of our cabin. It... More

Very nice and cozy place near Denali National Park. We stayed in two cabins, spacious and clean. Bathrooms are clean and big. Good service, friendly staff, free wifi. Nice restaurant just across the street. 10 mins from Denali Visitor center.
