“Genuine Alaskan Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2010

Within hours of arriving in Anchorage we settled in at Maggies Place. It was more of a self contained resort, rather than a cabin to spend the night. We hiked, fished, went for a run, kids played in a boat, swam (brrrrr) used the wood fired sauna, chopped wood, roasted marshmallows round the fire, picked fresh greens from the owners garden, and really enjoyed the opportunity to learn about the area from the owner. And to think we'd planned to just spend the night before visiting Denali. Our only complaint was that our schedule didn't allow us to stay longer. Do yourself a favor and spend some time at Adventure Denali. It's a true Alaskan outdoor adventure and you won't want to leave.

This is the place to go if you are looking for someplace near Denali national park, and don't want the sterile, package hotel experience of staying directly at the park entrance. At Adventure Denali, you will find a great cabin and an amazingly accomodating host, Kirk. This is not the right place for someone seeking luxury--this is the right place for someone seeking the outdoor Alaskan experience. We were provided all the information we needed on local activities, had our cultural questions answered, and were given great hiking advice. Great place!

My husband, 2 grown children & I stayed in Maggie's Place cabin 3 nights while visiting Denali National Park. It was clean and comfy w/an Alaskan decor, caribou antlers, etc. The cabin's big living rm. windows overlook a beautiful lake where we watched a Bald Eagle, Dall Sheep on the cliffs, and enjoyed a bbq grill & firepit. Even though it's just off the Parks Hwy., it's back far enough where traffic noise isn't a problem. It has 2 comfy bedrooms upstairs, with a double and single bed in ea. bedroom, modern bathroom facilities, & even has an addt'l apartment on the back to rent if you need more sleeping space. We loved it! My husband & son fished the lake (at an addt'l fee) until mid-night & my children took a beautiful hike Kirk recommended. Kirk and his resident dog were great hosts, very knowledgeable about the area and accomodating! I wouldn't hesitate recommending this little piece of paradise (15-20 mins. south of Glitter Gulch & the Park entrance) to anyone! The whole family loved the beautiful scenery & privacy! If you are looking for a no frills, but extremely beautiful spot, this is the place!
