We enjoyed a wonderful day of heli tour and dinner specially prepared for friends and family of the family matriarch. Fantastic weather (I'm sure lodge personnel had something to do with it :>), a delicious dinner and great staff made for a memorable experience. The comment of the day? 'I had no idea this place was here!' And this was... More

My husband and I stayed here during an Alaskan Land tour. What an amazing site.....the cabins all have a view of the mountains and have a small porch. You can look for mountain goats on the mountains as well as stay up for the aurora! Great restaurant for breakfast and dinner. A real find.....room could be a bit small for... More

My wife and I had dinner at the restaurant here on a Friday night, and it was one of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time. The staff was very nice and friendly. The dinner was delicious (I had ribeye and my wife had salmon). And the setting was incredible. We chose the perfect night, because the... More

It's the location that makes this place. The views are amazing. Even though it is far off the beaten path, about 20 minutes from route 1, it has an excellent restaurant. The cabin was a little tight for me, some would call it rustic and cozy. However, it was very clean with a comfortable bed. There is no cable TV,... More

As others have mentioned, this place is a large group of modern individual cabins set with a view of the mountains. It's at the end of the road, so you have the feeling of being "out there." There's no wi-fi in the cabins, but it is available in the lounge in the main lodge. The restaurant is has excellent food,... More

My husband, infant son and I stayed here for two nights and we absolutely loved it. The cabins are simple but cozy and offer one spectacular view of the mountains and valley. It was incredibly clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. The cabins are very remote which is something we really enjoyed - it was peaceful and since it... More

Very cute comfortable cabins (about 25 in all) overlooking beautiful snow-capped mountains which are sure to take your breath away. We arrived during the VERY EARLY MORNING ( around 3:30am) Although the drive from Anchorage Airport was quite lengthy (duein part to the fact that it was very rainy and foggy that night), it was WELL WORTH IT! We had... More
