This place is awesome. Definitely one of the coolest places we stayed in Alaska, set amid all of these rocky cliffs and mountainsides. You pass the Matanuska Glacier and lots of beautiful valleys and so forth when you go to this place. We went to the restaurant, which was excellent as well.
There's a nice wooded area that people can peruse...though my mom disappeared for like 2 hours and I thought a grizzly bear got her! We also got cell reception pretty much everywhere in Alaska except for here -- and there is no internet access (or, there was none when we were there). Not overall a problem. The little cabins are awesome, there is a hot tub/jacuzzi, and there's plenty of stuff to see along the way.
The food at the restaurant is excellent, they usually have some chunks of salmon and some good entrees and desserts. Everyone we met there was super nice and the lodge is beautiful and well-taken care of.
