We had a GREAT stay here, the property and lodging was BEYOND my expectation. For such a remote area of Alaska, Jeff & Rose have created a beautiful (and ohhhhhh so clean) get-a-way for guests. The breakfast was delicious, hearty but healthy with a snack to take on the road too (freshly baked goods with original recipies from Rose). The common area is the best I have seen in my years of travel: clean, modern, EVERYTHING you could need including unopened milk & OJ in the fridge for guests. Even when i had a bit of an issue with my overall travel plans, Jeff went went beyond kindness to offer assistance. They run the property as a family, and they knocked it out of the park. If you're still reading this review, PLEASE book your stay with them!

This is a gem in a land of many amazing things. The Inn is SPOTLESS, comfortable, welcoming, peaceful, beautiful, fun and affordable! Rose, Jeff, Teal and Ruby work hard to make your stay perfect. They feed you a wonderful breakfast of homemade food daily, coffee and tea. They give you great tips about the area. There are activities for kids- Tennis, B-ball, Golf, Paddle boats and a beautiful view. Also, homemade cookies every evening....... woot woot!! We had 2 rooms and they were clean, comfortable and we all slept well. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Inn at Tern Lake for anyone that wants to enjoy their visit to the great state of Alaska.

Stayed here for a friends wedding, could not be happier with how everything turned out. Very well ran, food was incredible, and the family that owns it are fantastic people! You will be well taken care of. The location is unbelievably gorgeous. Very close to multiple hiking trails. Would highly recommend.

Lovely inn on a small private body of water, natural setting, large and well appointed rooms. Home-made cookies and coffee, tea or hot chocolate in the evening. Great recommendations for local sites from the owners who have deep roots in the area. Delicious breakfast. One of the nicest places we stayed!
