We loved driving the road in and out in the morning and evening to catch the wildlife. We saw Moose and porcupines, There is also Pioneer waterfall... More

After 15 years of marriage, and with two teenagers, we decided we needed a weekend to rekindle the romance. KRL was the perfect place to be alone and rediscover just the two of us.

This place is unbelievably great. Peters the owner is very gracious and accommodating. The views are breath taking. The individual cabin are very comfortable and roomy. There is a helicopter excursion available to go to a glacier. Other activities are available too. Highly recommend at least one night or more to stay here.

We had a very delicious dinner last night at the Restaurant. I think it might be the best food I've ever had in Matsu valley. Service was impeccable and the sunset view incredible. The Yurt was an interesting dining experience, the new building is very nice and includes the view. The restaurant is small and usually busy so be sure... More

My husband and 12 year old daughter and I spent 2 days at the Knik River Lodge this week. I heard about it because of an Alaskan coupon book I bought (TourSaver) which gave us 2 nights for the price of one. From the moment I booked it, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Originally we were going to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our two days in the comfortable log cabins. We really enjoyed sitting out on the front porch soaking in the scenery and solitude, while hoping a moose would appear. The restaurant was lovely and served delicious meals.
