About
Description
Just 7 miles south of the entrance to Denali National Park we've built a genuine Alaska-style luxury lodge for visitors seeking an exclusive Denali experience. Local artisans and builders created this exquisite More lodge from native trees and handcrafted every detail in the lodge, cabins, gallery and cafe including furniture, quilts, pottery, wood carvings, paintings, metalwork and glass. Tonglen Lake Lodge features 10 secluded cabins for guests searching for a true, cabins-in-the-woods getaway. Breakfast at our on-site Artisan Cafe is included in your stay. In the evenings, our cafe offers a Bistro menu along with a selection of wine and Alaskan beer. Enjoy an evening sitting by the campfire, roasting your own s'mores, soaking in the view of the surrounding Alaska Range and leaving your stress and worries behind. Be sure to check our event schedule for musical concerts, theater performances and workshops at Tonglen Lake. Less

Thank you for contacting us here. We have 10 cabins on the property. They can fit 2 people really easily. But it would fit up to 4 people with one king sized bed and a queen bed.

Yes! We have WiFi provided in the main lodge which houses the cafe and lounge area. There is no WiFi in the cabins to ensure a peaceful retreat.

Tonglen lake is really shallow and freezes to the ground in the winter time. So there are no fish in there. We do have some great places that offer guided fishing trips nearby.
