Enjoyed staying here. It was rustic and cozy. We stayed in the smaller cabin. It had room for 3 people to sleep, and an area for sitting. The bathroom was fine. It was very quiet and the river is right behind, with great views. The lodge restaurant is right next door, handy since there isn't a lot in the area,... More

This is an historic Alaskan roadhouse from the early years of the 20th century. There are very few authentic roadhouses remaining. This site has the lodge with 9 rooms--one they say is haunted--3 cabins, a tavern, and the Carriage House restaurant. I cannot say anything about the rooms in the lodge as we were in one of the cabins. The... More

I traveled to Alaska and met my brother there. He wanted to take me on a trip and offered to pay for an Alaska vacation. We traveled from Anchorage June 25th 2013, to the Gacona Lodge. We stayed two nights in cabin #2 and I enjoyed every min. of the trip. They took us fishing on the Flutima river two... More

This place has a lodge and cabins in the woods. We stayed in a cabin which was really basic, a bit rundown and had a heater that sounds like a jet engine in the room. Even though this is a cabin in the woods, the grounds could use some grooming and some upgrades to the furniture. That being said, the... More

Valori, Owner at Gakona Lodge & Trading Post, responded to this review

The Cabin is 98 years old and almost all furniture is new (within the last two years) or purchased used to match the era. The "jet engine" is a direct quote from me from a conversation in the bar but it does heat the cabin very rapidly. This cabin has housed trappers for most of its life and is on... More

Greg and Valori and crew went out of their way to make our 3rd Alaskan trip the best one so far. We both love old historic places and this was a perfect match. We stayed in cabin 2, had our meals in the restaurant and spent some time in the Trappers Den. During the day we fished for salmon with... More

Spent two nights in a cabin beside the river. Cabin is basic and comfortable, price of the cabin was not a bargain rate, but there are not many lodging options nearby. One night we took advantage of the cabin by cooking our own meal, which was quite nice (there is a supermarket 15 miles away in Glenallen). On site there... More

On our Alaskan tour we ended up in Gakona and stayed in the old road house lodge. Our downstairs room was clean and spacious, although the ravages of time were there. It gave the room, the building character. The room had a bathroom, which was very neat. But was fairly comfy, we had a good nights rest in a historic... More

Spent a night in one of the cabins and it was a very similar experience to when I was a kid staying in a cabin in northern Minnesota. Nothing fancy here but a good night's sleep and fresh muffins, scones, cereal, juice and coffee in the morning. The sound of the river rushing by behind the cabin lulled us to... More

We stayed in a cabin here in September when travelling through Alaska. The cabin was fairly new and very clean and the hosts were very accommodating. There is also a restaurant on the premises that serves good food which was great. This is a good spot to spend a night if you plan to go flight seeing over majestic St... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Our travelling companions stayed in a three bedroom cabin and the sound of the heater kept them awake but it would not have been a problem in warm weather. The cabins were rustic, but had all facilities and were heated and comfortable. The owner told us that it is one of the last two original... More
