My wife and I booked a tent cabin which is directly on the Gulkana river. The tent was much more than a tent! It had a king size bed, complete with memory foam mattress and super plush bedding. I've stayed in 5 star hotels that didn't come close to the comfort this offered. There were books, fresh water decanter and... More

Property was beautiful, the hosts were great. We stayed in a tent cabin, which was totally private, right on the river had had great mountain views. A great compromise for those who want a good Alaskan outdoors experience but still like sleeping in a bed. Our only regret is that we only got to stay two nights.

Stayed 1 night at the Denali hwy Cabins before setting out on the Old Denali Highway. "Audie" was a great host. the cabins are very comfortable. They have a shared great room with a nice warm fire, comfortable couches and good wifi. Breakfast was tasty and more than enough. I went to Alaska for birding and Audie gave us a... More

These cabins are in a wonderful location. We approached on the Richardson Highway from Fairbanks and were delighted by the ice covered Summit Lake shortly before we got there. Later we drove the paved 20 miles along the Denali Highway and back. The views are stunning. We stayed for 1 night in a large comfortable cabin with mountain views. There... More

We stayed only one night in the cabin and we hope we can stay more. The cabin is at the corner of the 2 highway but it's not exactly on the highway. There are lots of trees between the highway and the cabin. The only sound you will hear is from the beautiful creak at the back. Each cabin is... More

We arrived in Paxson after driving across the Denali highway. Our cabin was clean and cozy. Jenny and Audie are great hosts and offered a fabulous breakfast and travel tips for the area. Thanks for the great stay!!

We stayed at Denali Highway Cabins for a second time in a couple of years recently, and we were hoping we hadn't just imagined how wonderful it was. There are two choices: snug log cabins with heat and bathrooms, and tent cabins with king-sized beds on the river. We put our (grown) daughters in a cabin this time and chose... More

This is as much a Bed and Breakfast as a cabin experience, as a superb continental breakfast is served. We were upgraded to a superior cabin which was most luxuriously appointed. We were only sorry that we could only stay for one night and if we ever return to Alaska, this will be one of the stops. Audie and his... More

Imagine sitting on the deck of your tent at the edge of the river, watching the salmon make their way up the river and listening to the sound of wilderness. This is my idea of heaven. If your idea is a Hilton with room service, this is not the place for you. But if you want a lovely setting with... More

Had a chance to spend two nights in the tent cabins at Denali Highway Cabins (they have regular cabins too!) right on the Gulkana River. Literally step outside the cabin and into the river. Simply amazing. We were there during the sockeye salmon run and the river was thick with fish and the trees heavy with bald eagles looking for... More
