The Gracious House Lodge is an Alaskan roadhouse located at mile 82 of the Denali Highway, roughly half-way between Cantwell and Paxson. The accommodations are modest, yet adequatem, suitably clean and reasonably priced given its remote location. A quonset hut serves as a diner, with limited grill food menu, serving good breakfasts. It is also worth stopping in at the "Sluice Bar" for a beer, or a shot of "Wild Turkey," which is was a favorite watering hole for gold miners before the mine closed down. Patrons have plastered the ceiling with dollar bills. The Gracious House also has float plane service for hunters and fishermen. You can expect to meet an interesting assortment of other guests. During our stay, we had an interesting conversation with a group of geologists that were studying the nearby 2002 earthquake and fault lines.
