The place was amazing and the people friendly and most helpful with advice on things to do. The food was incredible too--and plentiful. The ONLY reason it didn't get five stars is that there seemed to be a problem with the septic tank, which caused a bad smell around the facility. That was in August, so might be fixed by... More

The only thing wrong about Skyline Lodge is that it's too far away from Baltimore to spend weekends there. I knew that it would be delightful when I saw that reservations were made through their "Chief Awesomeness Manager". I would have a hard time choosing what was most awesome: The flight in, especially the scenic up-close-and-personal view of Denali; the... More

What a wonderful experience! A stay in the back-country of Denali, without roughing it or spending a fortune. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The food was good and plentiful. The bed and room were comfy. Fellow travelers were fun, and it was nice comparing Alaska journey stories. Never a wait for the bathroom, and it was easy access.... More

Our son Chris had told us that if we spent our money on anything during our time in Alaska, we should spend on the flight into Kantishna and a stay at Skyline Lodge. He was right. Our flight with Greg up over the glaciers with a peek at the top of Denali was spectacular! Greg was a great tour guide... More

Stayed three nights. It was wonderful. The food and staff were great. Scenery, of course was fantastic. Loved the McKinley scenic flight. Spent a great (and strenuous) day bicycling and hiking, the highlight of which was getting close up (not too close) with a large moose at Wonder Lake. All in all a terrific experience.

It's very easy to offer this feedback:) Skyline Lodge ( and their Kantisjna Air Taxi into the Park and Lodge) was the height of our two weeks in Alaska. Greg's place is a great place for a vacation that teens and adults would thoroughly enjoy. We had THE complete wonderful time there. Skyline was beautiful, the bedroom was perfect, the... More

We arrived after a six and a half hour bus ride to smiling Matt the receptionist extraordinaire who was always helping, accomodating, and answering questions. As soon as we entered, while listening to the rules and where to find this and that and showing us to our rooms, we smelled enticing aromas emanating from the kitchen where Christina turns out...

Skyline Lodge situated on the hill of Kantishna with an overview of the river running through the valley. The view was breathtaking. Bobbi and the rest of the staff took care of us during our stay. The chef from Louisiana provided excellent dinner. Breakfast is provided. You could also pack sandwich for lunch. Of all the wonderful things we have... More

We stayed three nights at the Skyline Lodge. This lodge is exactly like it is advertised. The rooms are comfortable and cosy with awesome views from your porch outside your door. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and always ready to help with any questions or needs. The lodge is very clean and the main living room is so comfortable, especially... More

My family of four stayed at Skyline Lodge in June and would like to thank all the staff for enabling us to experience the real Alaska (sorry for our late review, we had a backlog of work to catch up on after we returned home from travelling). Our kids joined the staff's children (on school holidays) in rolling down the... More

Dear Michelle Z, It was so great to share Denali with you and your crew from Australia! Tundra rolling and creek playing with Alaskan hooligans, if not mountain biking to Wonder Lake, will certainly make for a memorable stay :) Thanks for letting us share our home away from home with you. Until next time, The KAT Crew More
