We took the Wilderness Express train from Fairbanks to the Denali depot. We were met there by the Kantishna Roadhouse bus, driven be Kristen on the way in, and Christine on the way out. Kantishna is the end of the road, 92 miles into Denali Park. Our drivers both had binocular vision. They spotted wildlife that we otherwise probably wouldn't... More

Fantastic guides and staff. Good cabins at least equal to a good motel. Activities that keep you very fully energized whatever your physical abilities followed by a drink at a fine bar and excellent meals. The bus ride in is a great way to see wildlife and everything else in the park while hearing about it from a driver/guide who... More

We stayed at Kantishna Roadhouse two nights. They offer experienced guides for a variety of activities. My wife and I took a half day hike to the river. Our guide was pointed out many interesting things about the flora and fauna of the area. They have hikes ranging from easy to difficult. The meals were delicious, and the cabins comfy... More

We only spent one night here but our hiking guide, Cody, was outstanding. He had degrees in biology and geology and led us on a stimulating and quite educational hike. It was such a special place we would have enjoyed staying longer. Many of our group took advantage of the gold mining!

I disagree with the reviewer who said the lodge and cabins are mediocre. They in fact are very nice and comfortable. The place is, after all, in the middle of a national park, so one can hardly expect the Ritz. We were there for two nights and had no complaints. A big part of the experience is the bus ride...

The Roadhouse is basically log cabins in the woods accessed on unpaved paths through the woods. The cabins are appointed quite nicely. There is no WiFi anywhere, this facility is 95 miles deep in the park. The staff is fantastic with expert guides for just about any adventure. Meals in the lodge are very good from the buffet breakfast to... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Roadhouse in July. Yes, its expensive, but it is a unique experience. You truly get away from it all, no wifi or screens-- just natural beauty, wildlife, comfortable lodgings and good food.

It rained my entire 9 day trip so I did not get to see Denali mountain and a good deal of the ride to the roadhouse I could not even see the mountain range. Christine was the tour bus driver and she was incredibly informed giving us a wealth of information about the area and its history; I couldn't imagine... More
