We stopped in for a quick dinner while staying in the Cooper Landing area. Gwin's is easy to find with plenty of parking off the main road. The atmosphere is rustic and well worn... but after all this place is a legend...and we were in Alaska. When we were at the restaurant the drinks were flowing and the place was... More

Nice cabin we stayed at- No TV or other distractions to deal with. You can go out and enjoy the wilderness. If you kids are hooked on electrical gadgets-stay away. The restaurant is great also. A person needs to take in the full experience in Gwinns.

Great place to stay, quaint little cottages. ( needs a little electrical updating ) very clean. Housekeeping staff awesome! Restaurant and food beyond fabulous. Great food, reasonable prices. John the cook outstanding!!! Rob in store terrific guy. Took a charter for salmon and caught nothing, resort refunded most of our money! You don't get that kind of service much anymore.... More

Gwin's lodge is a great place, as long as you don't expect a 5 star resort. You are in Alaska and you are fishing, don't expect silk linens and a butler changing your sheets while you are sleeping, that is not why you are in Alaska. What you can expect is an excellent customer service if you have any questions... More

My travel preferences in Alaska are different than anywhere else. I live here, and understand the challenges of providing creature comforts (running water, electricity, indoor plumbing, etc) in remote, beautiful areas. I go for the view and the experiences – fishing, horseback riding, photography, hiking, boating, etc. With family in town for a summer visit, we booked a fishing trip... More

Our family of 4 and grandma stayed in the one BR with loft cabin. Kids loved the loft and beds were comfortable (though not so much the pullout sleeper.). We rented waders and poles from the store and tried our luck on the Kenai and Russian Rivers. Friendly Staff was helpful in outfitting us and also worked to grant a... More

We stayed in cabin #2 (2 adults, 3 kids). We were happy with the cabin- very conveniently located near the Russian River and lots of great hiking. The property has a store and good restaurant which was reasonably priced (for Alaska)- we enjoyed it so much we ate both evenings at Gwin's. We especially liked the fried halibut platter- service...

3 adults shared the aspen cabin. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. It looked like the bedding was brand new. The cabin was very clean and the bathroom was very nice. Beds were comfortable and the pull out sofa was decent. No tv but we were too tired from the days activities to care.

We stayed here after travelling on the ferry from Valdez before driving to Homer. The cabin had everything we needed and was clean and everything worked very well. We had cabin number 5 which looked older than most of the others and it was dark inside. (It was a very dull day). Whether you stay here or are just passing... More
