A luxury experience in a remote, spectacular setting. The accommodations are very comfortable, the food delicious and the owners very attentive. I have always been interested in photographing sunsets and John took me to a beaver lake to photograph sunset at midnight! Unforgettable! Our stay was special in every way.

How can I really explain the rare opportunity my husband and I had to experience this remote 'above the Arctic Circle' wilderness lodge and the very talented people who run it! Yes, it was quite expensive - but of course when you are in the remote reaches of Alaska, how much would you be willing to pay for a private... More

Not many people have the luxury of visiting this Lodge run by Pat and John Gaedeke but those that do, experience a truly unique experience. First the remoteness and beauty are breathtaking. Your trip is fully customized ! We started out at the Caribou Cabin and it is truly an experience but you are well taken care of. But when... More

Luxury in the Far North sums it up! Our time at the Arrigetch Cabin and the Iniakuk Lodge was inspiring and rewarding on many levels. We had just the right combination of adventure on the river/hiking near the cabin combined with a stay at the lodge to round out the trip. Late summer in Alaska is beautiful - changing colors,...

Wow, what an Alaskan experience north of the Arctic Circle. It exceeded our expectations. We visited all 3 locations - Iniakuk Lodge, Caribou Cabin and Arrigetch-Alatna River Cabin. We were glad we had the chance to visit all 3. Pat Gaedeke's personalized email communications in helping to plan the trip and leading right up to our arrival were perfect! Pat's... More

This was our second visit to Iniakuk Lake Wilderness Lodge and our best holiday ever. Our first visit was in the summer of 2008 when we stayed in the Main Lodge and the Caribou Cabin with our three children aged 5-11. That was such a wonderful once in a lifetime experience that we decided to make it twice in a... More

The fact that all ten reviewers give Iniakuk Lodge five stars says it all. The setting is awe-inspiring. The Lodge is comfortable and suited to the setting - several log buildings with remarkable views, exceptional food and remarkable amenities given the remoteness of the area and the difficulties and expense of travel. Pat and her son John are perceptive hosts,... More

We had a splendid time at Iniakuk Lodge and Caribou Cabin. The remote setting makes it a very special place. Pat and John are the epitome of good hosts and made sure everything was perfect for us. Pat’s meals are delicious, the setting on Iniakuk Lake is beautiful and the guest suite cabin is private, well-appointed and comfortable with a... More

We enjoyed the best remote outdoor vacation we have ever experienced at Iniakuk Lake. First of all, the lodge is located in one of the most beautiful places in Alaska. The only buildings on the north end of this five mile long lake is the lodge. Only two other cabins are on this lake and they are on the other... More

This review is more specific to Caribou Cabin, rather than to the lodge itself. Caribou Cabin is a bit lighter on amenities than Iniakuk Lodge, but other than not having a chance to check out the lodge, I have no regrets about not staying there. The reality is that Caribou Cabin isn't about the cabin, it's about Alaska. The cabin... More
