We got married at Winterlake and it was PERFECT! The staff was fantastic and the cabin couldn't have been better! Yes, it is a lot of money but TOTALLY worth every dollar. We have new lifelong friends who made our big day special. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We can't wait to return. To celebrate our 5th anniversary!

I simply can't say enough about Winterlake Lodge and the Dixon-Potgeiter families and staff. It was the trip of a lifetime for us, and we have traveled to some amazing places. The absolutely beautiful cabin, the food, and the pristine environment would be enough on their own, but the owners and staff were knowledgeable, attentive, and tailored experiences to our... More

WE are a family of four with 2 children age 9 and 11. We wanted to go off the beaten path and see the true Alaska. When I first booked our trip to Winter Lake Lodge I was a bit overwhelmed by the expense in staying at Winter Lake Lodge, but in hindsight I can say it was worth every... More

Despite some notable misgiving, the owners and staff worked hard and were well coordinated. A surprisingly good attention to detail and focus on hospitality. food was ok.nothing to write home about. I would return for more fishing expeditions by helicopter.

Words and photos don't do justice to Winterlake Lodge. If you're considering whether to spend the money to go, then let me help you. Spend it. By the time you leave, you'll be wondering why you didn't figure out a way to afford more nights. When we first made our booking, we gawked at the price. But given this was... More

So while you are in Alaska to enjoy so much it has to offer, what jumps out about Winterlake is the food. Todd and Frank did an amazing job on our recent stay. Everything was amazing, from snacks to breakfasts to dinners. Fresh ingredients, reasonable portions, nothing overly complex but always interesting. We had to exercise serious self restraint. And...

This Lodge provides superior service, accommodations and food in a rugged and truly "within the wild" location. The Lodge is on the Iditarod trail and right on a beautiful lake. It is only accessible by air. But don't let the remote location fool you; this is a place of gourmet food and pampering service. Massages and yoga classes are offered... More

Go. That about sums up the advice that I have about Winterlake Lodge but if you are looking for some detail as to why, here goes. It’s remote – in other words the address is coordinates and you fly in and fly out. The staff is supremely friendly and by the end of the first day, they feel a bit... More

If you're looking for a once in a lifetime experience in the heart of the Alaska wilderness, this is the place for you! Our family of four, one tween and one teenager, spent two very memorable nights at this rustic, luxurious lodge (we didn't want to leave). Our journey began with a hour-long scenic float plane ride over many beautiful... More
