Unfortunately we got there very late at night and so missed also the included breakfast, before needing to move on according to plan. The cabin was very cute and the location looks like it has a huge potential. Another mistake we made, was not booking up-front (weeks or months ahead, apparently), the boat ride we intended to take nearby to... More

I had very high expectation about this lodge and they didn't let me down. Staff welcomed us like family members. Cabin room is comfy, and sitting at the small deck watching the valley is so enjoyable. Although the whole lodge was fully booked, it was so quiet at night so we could take full advantage of the comfortable bed and... More

Our helicopter tour and dog sled ride was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska! Joseph was our pilot and very knowledgable about the area and the glacier and had keen eyesight so he was able to point out all the black bears on the mountain-sides as we headed out to the glacier. The dog sled camp was... More

I see big things happening for this lodge. There is no actual lodge yet (i am assuming that they are expanding due to some construction on site) but they have approx 20 cabins for rent each with full bath, microwave, tv(no cable, just for watching movies) and a spectacular view regardless of the weather. I am from Anchorage and i... More

The Knik River Lodge was recommended to us by people we met at Denali and we were fortunately able to make last minute reservations - only two nights with availability the month of July. The cabins were so nice and the view was amazing! The staff were very friendly and helpful!!! And the best meal we have had in Alaska... More

This place was cute. The cabins were clean, the staff was friendly, cans we got to do fine dining in a yurt!! Didn't do the helicopter landing, but they give discounts to those who are staying there. I liked being able to wake up and relax with my morning coffee on the porch with an amazing view. This place is... More

We did the helicopter and glacier walk today through Knik River Lodge. It was beautiful scenery and Joseph our pilot was an excellent pilot and guide. Well worth it. Actually got to walk/hike on glacier and take pics, explore and soak it all in. The staff was most helpful setting up service and preparing for the trip.

Was there overnight for a wedding party and stayed in their wonderful cabins. The views are beautiful and the staff was very helpful and the food just great. They had a bonfire after dinner and put out blankets for the chilly air. It was just a wonderful atmosphere. Very relaxing.

Thank you, it's always great to be a part of such a happy event and we enjoyed working with the bride and groom to plan their perfect day. There is something magical about a campfire: people exchanging stories and enjoying a summer evening with a nice glass of wine. We provide the wood, all you need to do it pull... More

We stayed here to do the helicopter landing on Knik Glacier. This was our favorite place in Alaska. If you looking for a bar scene, it's not the place for you. But the cabins are very nice and new. the food in the restaurant was exceptional.....and the helicopter ride is completely awesome. Just make sure you know how to turn... More

Hello and thanks for your beautiful review! You are right, the Knik glacier offers incredible scenery and a helicopter flight with glacier landing is by far the best way to see it. Next time you should try the dogsled tour on the glacier: a real Alaskan experience where you fly by helicopter higher on the glacier where you land on... More

We stayed in half a dozen places during our 2 weeks in Alaska, and this was probably our favorite of the bunch. The little cabins are cute, clean and well stocked with a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The scenery is gorgeous, and its secluded location means a lot of wildlife sightings--we watched a couple of moose grazing from our... More
