Loved every minute of being at Skyline. All good and the food is exceptional. Kudos to Christina, the chef. I wish I could have stayed longer. This is a rather small lodge making it easy to meet and socialize as much as you want with other guests and staff. Hiking, biking, and blueberry picking were activities we took advantage of....

We had an unforgettable stay here. I would highly recommend it but with a few caveats. You should be prepared to be self sufficient here.  Folks come here to stay for a couple of days and while here, they hike and explore on their own.  Does that sound like you?evaluate that before booking. The lodge itself consists of a main... More

Stayed here for two nights as part of a group while touring Denali. As others have mentioned, it is in a beautiful spot at the end of the park road. The staff are awesome and the rooms are quiet and cozy/comfortable. It sort of has a communal living/bed & breakfast feel to it, sometimes it is hard to tell who... More

Hi William, Thanks so much for taking the time to review your experience at our lodge. We are glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your experience with us. You are correct that the bathroom being in the main lodge can be an issue for some- so we try to make sure people know that there are no en suite... More

It is worth the travel time to come to Kantishna and specifically to Skyline Lodge! It is as far back into the Denali area as you can go and it feels that way. The lodge is very comfortable - we enjoyed relaxing in the common areas after long days of hiking. Bobbie was very helpful in his hiking recommendations and... More

This place is a real treat. Deep in Denali. Great views, great food, clean and kind and helpful people. The shared bathroom thing was OK with proper planning. It rained almost the entire two days we were there and we still enjoyed it. This is a place for independent souls. No tour guides, etc.

Wow. Awesome, excellent value place tucked into the Kantishna hills deep in Denali NP. From the moment we were greeted outside as we got off the bus, we knew we found a keeper. The staff were all incredible, proving guidance for daily excursions, amazing food, and a family like atmosphere. With only a handful of other guests, and easy access... More

We wanted a place where we could enjoy nature, see the wonderful views of the park, get unplugged, but still have a clean bed, warm shower, and good food. Skyline Lodge was the perfect place. We were able to carry a minimal amount of clothing and have our other needs provided by the wonderful staff. The meals were wonderful. One... More

I was a bit concerned about this being too rustic when booking this lodge but it turned out to be one of the best places my wife and I have stayed anywhere in the world.

If you are looking to be pampered, please don;t stay here and please don;t ride the school bus for 8 hours. My husband and I went here in 2008 and we want to go back.

Skyline Lodge is a small lodge in the back country of Denali National Park. A stay here should be on everyone's bucket list! It is a small lodge with an intimate ambience.
