An excellent alternative to the commercial hotel experience, operated by longtime locals who homesteaded in the immediate area. Located above treeline on open tundra with sweeping mountain views, far away from the noise and crowds at the park entrance. 12 log cabins with modern amenities available in five different sizes, affording comfortable accommodations and privacy. Daily morning sled dog kennel tours allow guests to meet the dogs that take winter visitors on expeditions into the park in the snowy season. Evening slide presentations offered by staff naturalist. Coffeehouse open in mornings offering light breakfast items and baked goods, along with full espresso bar and best coffee in the area.

My family (husband and myself, our three boys, and my mother) stayed in a cabin at Earthsong lodge. We LOVED it. We loved the setting - 17 miles north of Denali park, and away from it all. We walked out onto the taiga research station that was a mile north. We saw a moose and her baby one early morning as we drove towards Denali. And we got to hug and pet about 50 different dogs each morning between 9:30-10:30 am and learn how important dogs are in Alaska, navigating cold, snowy winters! My kids LOVED the dogs. Each cabin was designed and created by owners. Each cabin has a slightly different theme. There is a small coffee house from where you can buy coffee and basic breakfast items, but they can make you a sandwich for the day if you ask the night before. The staff were the best - wonderful, helpful, interesting stories to tell! It felt homey. If you are looking for best wifi and close to restaurants, this may not be the best place for you - if you are looking for connecting with nature in a beautiful magical setting: go to Earthsong!!

We stayed 5 nights at this wonderful lodge and it was perfect. Our cabin was a great size and Henry's Coffeehouse was definately an asset. The lodge is a short 30 minute drive from the National Park and it's location is so peaceful away from the more populated tourist accommodation in Denali. Touring the sled dog kennels was a highlight. Would love to come back one day.

We drove off the main road to this wonderful little place. Each cabin has a theme and is decorated accordingly.Jon, the owner, hand built all of the cabins (and I use cabin loosely). They are cozy and well maintained. Sitting on the porch looking out at the tundra and the mountains is as close to heaven as you will ever be.We checked in with Courtney (in a yurt!) and she was delightful and informative.They have slide shows every night of the beautiful scenery and the mushing trips. We went to meet the sled dogs on our last morningwhich was fun after hearing them yip and howl at the other dogs in the area. We started here and travelled south but I would love to come back and go north to Fairbanks. Thank you for an amazing experience.

Some may find that this is a little to simple and far out, but this is what we love about taking vacation. Off the grid, away from the “city” and more about enjoying what’s around us in nature. Cute and comfortable cabins, with just the basics! Healy is about 15 minutes north of Denali, but we enjoyed the drive and the seclusion. They have a dog kennel on the property and do kennel tours in the morning free to guests. Get ready to hear some howling at night, with a kennel of 25 dogs, they love to sing and talk to the other kennels near by. Courtney and Jon were both very quick to respond and provide suggestions to make our visit in Denali great. As long as the KP index for the Northern Lights is “moderate” you should be far enough away from any lights or pollution to obstruct your view. We were unsuccessful in our time there, but we also were 100% aware of what to look for.
