The cabins are very nice, with microwave, fridge, wifi and shower. The cabins have more the enough space. The location is amazing. Beautiful mountains surround you and on the small porch in front of the cabin,you can enjoy the environment. The food is really good. Nice dining facility in a yurt with good end friendly service. A nice wine list... More

For us, the key to our great Alaskan vacation was flexibility. We "planned" 3 things in 2 weeks. This was our second planned event; a helicopter photography trip. We had a great time with Rusty and Joe. We stopped at two glaciers then had lunch on top of a mountain. Absolutely incredible. This is on our list to do the... More

Thank you for the review of your photo trip last year. This is one of my personal favorites as it gives you time to really experience the incredible landscape around the Knik glacier and Lake George. Since last year we have been very busy with our landscaping, the peacocks however are probably still a few years away... We are at... More

We started planning for our group of twelve 8 months out. Peter was really helpful in getting us a mini van, driver ( John ) and a trailer. We were picked up from anchorage, by John, who at this stage was becoming part of our 'rent a crowd ' Aussie family. The scenery is spectacular, although we managed to be... More

Thanks, Chris for your kind words! We certainly had an interesting day with challenging logistics flying your group all over the place. Our flight crew was great in managing all the flights and helicopters and making sure all of you got to do the 'triple treat'. Next time we'll pick a nice and sunny day like today and take you...

Thanks for your review! Just last winter we have started a major landscaping project and the new parking lot is part of that. There are two different paths up to the restaurant, but we find that most people prefer to use our 'staff shortcut', the stone steps you refer to. We take these reviews very seriously and we will make... More

We spent three enjoyable nights which included a dogsledding adventure. We found the staff to be pleasant and helpful and the cabins clean and comfortable with a European feel - think Ikea crossed with TempurPedic - unpretentious and luxurious all at the same time. We ate our meals in the lovely ambiance of the yurt but did not find the... More

We're really happy you took the time to write a review, thanks! I will check in with the kitchen crew to make sure we don't overcook the fish. We take great pride in the restaurant and both the seafood and the beef are the best available on the market. Next time you visit please make sure you mention to your... More

My wife and I really enjoyed this place. The cabins were very clean. The office offered DVD to watch for free. Breakfast and Lunch were good considering they were less than $10 a plate. We saw a bunch of wildlife such as moose and even a bear on the drive over. The staff was super friendly and helpful as well.... More

Hello and thanks for your review! I'd just like to expand a little bit on the available activities. It is true that the on-site helicopter tours are by far the most popular, but we do have a hiking trail starting right on the property, plus several world-class hikes nearby. Just three miles down the road Knik Glacier Tours offers amazing... More

My wife and I spent one night at the Knik River Lodge and the following morning flew to the top of a glacier for the dog sled experience. This was the highlight of our trip to Alaska! The cabin was spacious, and the bed comfortable. Our dinner was the best we had during our trip—fresh salmon, grilled to perfection, good... More

Beautiful views, great helicopter and jet boat ride, fabulous restaurant onsite that had excellent wine. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the staff were friendly, helpful and helped make this our favorite place to stay in our 12 day driving trip.

We've eaten at the Lodge several times and have stayed there once. The food is terrific -- some of the best food I've eaten in Alaska. The restaurant is in a charming Yurt on a bluff overlooking the river. The cabins are nice too and spotlessly clean. The Lodge can arrange for a helicopter trip to the glacier and dog... More
