We had the pleasure to stay at Deneki Lakes for 2 nights during the first week in August. All of the other reviews depict how gracious Marianne is, and every word is true. The food is excellent and the rooms are very comfortable. I hope that you have the opportunity to have the fresh blueberries....WOW! If you want the tour bus crowd go to the Grand Denali or one of the other places at the park entrance. (We spent one night at the Grand Denali Lodge.) There is no comparison.
Also one of the previous reviewers mentioned the Bistro or Park 229 (that's the mile pole)....best food that we had in 11 days in Alaska. I had Arctic Char with Feta cheese wrapped in a pastry crust......"to die for" as the Food Channel would say.
