A new tradition of affordable hospitality at the gateway of this most accessible, wild mountain wilderness. A beautiful 7300 square foot timber framed lodge located in the heart of the Alaska Range. A little bit of luxury, road accessible, heavenly beds, fantastic food and company! Belvedere filled with stain glass portraits of northern lights. Romantic areas to visit, warm stone fireplace areas. Leather couches. Local cuisine.

This is a stunning place we called home for 2 nights. We stayed in room 6 with a comfy king bed and beautiful view across the plains. The entire lodge and 10 bedrooms were gorgeous. The bed was extremely comfortable with the best pillows! We were taken care of by the hard-working team of Ray, Harmony, and Thomas. The two dinners and one breakfast we had there were delicious home cooked meals. It was the perfect location for hiking to the ice cave (about 10 minutes south) and viewing the northern lights from a nearby plateau (about 10 minutes north.) Our group had the entire lodge to ourselves, and I could see how this might be a good place for a family reunion or executive retreat. The only challenge we had was difficulty connecting to consistent Wi-Fi.

Such a phenomenal place to explore Alaska! The lodge itself is gorgeous and so well built. My boyfriend is an engineer and spent awhile admiring the architecture and craftsmanship, he was very impressed. Beautiful place for couples or families to stay, we only were here one night and can’t wait to come back! Great hiking spots nearby and they will recommend some great places to hike to as well, ranging in ability. The meals and wine were fantastic and it was enjoyable to talk to the other guests staying. I have celiac disease and they were very kind and accommodating to me, dinner was all fresh local ingredients which is a big feat up here in AK. Can’t wait to return in the Winter!

Utterly lovely, accessible Alaska. The rooms and the setting are gorgeous, the hosts were gracious and fun. The reading room at the top of the spiral staircase is my idea of heaven, the trails beyond the lodge offer beauty for everyone who can walk to explore. I only wish we could have stayed longer! The Lodge also has the benefit of being on an amazing drive, so there's just not a wasted minute if you go visit them. Can't wait to come back for longer and adventure further!

The construction of this lodge and it’s late GE, circular sauna is remarkable. Both are made with lock wood and not a single nail. The rooms are large and terrific. The view is of the stunning Alaska Range if mountains. Highly recommended.
