A big thank you to Annie and her crew for a first class experience. After an arduous bike ride, we were starving. We were escorted to sumptuous room (with the most comfortable beds on our trip) where we showered in an immense bathroom and changed into clean clothes. Back upstairs, a plate of cheese, fruit and crackers were laid out... More

The best place we stayed on our trip through the interior by far. The meals were delicious and far above the other food available in the area. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We arrived in between meals and they made a delicious cheese plate for us on the spot. Highly recommend

We stopped here for one night driving from Fairbanks to Valdez. We got a nice room (no view) at the second floor. Bed was extremely comfortable and shower was good. The decor is beautiful and you can feel that this place was designed with love and care. The area around the lodge is beautiful and we even had time for... More

The room, views, and food were excellent. Wonderful location. The staff was very helpful and courteous. We met a lot of really nice people there. There were decks on the front and rear of the lodge with cozy areas for reading/relaxing inside.The lodge itself was a piece of art in craftsmanship. Very impressive and built to last. A friend had... More

This is a beautiful lodge in the middle of nowhere. The scenery is just fantastic, near the river with mountain views. In the morning they had a coffee bar set up so we helped ourselves to coffee and sat at a table for breakfast. We were served orange juice and a yogurt parfait with granola and fruit. Then it took...

Thank you for writing to us and letting us know about your experience! We try to also notify customers about our prices with the books located in your rooms and with a flyer in your room about the lodge. It is amazing how expensive it is to bring food in 140 miles and running a lodge off grid or self... More

Great place to stay with good food and excellent views. Be very careful of the lady owner she wants every dollar you have. She charges $3 for your breakfast coffee. Although they advertise free internet she wil not give you the password.

Oh my goodness! I am sorry that is what you went away with from staying at our lovely lodge! Internet is very slow in the middle of the Alaska Range and rarely working this is true.

A wonderful location and Benjamin was an excellent host, chef and source of knowledge. Best food in Alaska. Beds were comfortable and the ambiance great in a fine building next to one of the oldest roadside lodges in the State. Walking around the place was easy although access to more difficult hiking was simple. We chose the route that we... More

The upstairs guest rooms are lovely and there is a very nice gift shop on the second floor. I was there with my elementary-school-aged daughter and we went snowshoeing in bitter cold weather to the pipeline maybe 1/4-mile away. The proprietor/cook was very nice but I was a bit surprised that one person was left in charge of the entire... More

Highly recommended great place, outstanding views and lots of activities to choose from. Owner treated us like Royals and so the staff were above and beyond. We did snowmobiles, dog smushing at night, hiking and our guides were above and beyond. Thank you for an amazing trip we will never forget!!👍👏👏 Ramos Family from Miami, Florida
