I'm finally getting around to writing this review of our stay at Healy Heights in July 2011. There were six of us split between two Healy cabins on our trip to Denali. I must admit I was a little unsure about this place. Pictures from their website and other reviews I had read left me with the impression of a well kept but perhaps tired kind of place that still seemed worth taking a chance on. Therefore, I wasn't fully prepared for how spectacular this place actually is, especially considering how reasonable the rates are. To begin with, the cleanliness of the cabins mentioned by other reviewers on this website can't be stressed enough. These cabins are neat as a pin with nothing out of place, It's clear the owners take great pride in making sure the place is kept up to date and fresh throughout. The grounds are beautiful to wander, the views are magnificent and there's a wood-burning sauna built into the side of the mountain. We made full use of the fully stocked kitchen and enjoyed all of our meals right in the cabin. The fact that you can easily cook for 6 people and have everything you need was wonderful. Healy is about a 15 minute drive to the park entrance, just far enough away from the tourist area of Denali to give you a little secluded peace and quiet. On top of all this, the owners are absolutely delightful and accomodating...I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in the Denali area.
