Reviewed June 19, 2012

Thanks Marilou and Rod for helping us out at the last minute when there had been a misunderstanding with our booking at the Dome Home B&B.
Your cabins are very neat and clean and we enjoyed our one night stay.

We are so happy to have found The Healy Heights Family Cabins! We stayed two nights in the "Guest House Cabin" and friends stayed two nights in the "Northridge Cabin". This was our first time in Alaska and couldn't have found a better place to stay. We absolutely loved it!

A few years ago we were lucky enough to find Healy Heights Family Cabins. We have made a point of staying with Rod and Marilou ever since. The cabins are perfect for our stay each May. The cabins are well kept, spotlessly clean and have absolutely the best views of the surrounding mountains that you could ask for. We love being close to Denali NP and yet having our own little cabin in the woods. The sauna is an added bonus at the end of a long day of exploring the Park. We also have enjoyed the company of Rod and Marilou, the owners of Healy Heights each time we visit. They are friendly and very willing to share their knowledge of the surrounding area. These cabins are an excellent find, reasonable to stay at and Rod and Marilou are a delight. We always look forward to staying with them.

The Healy Heights Family Cabins are a jewel situated on a hillside above Healy with a fantastic view and a serene setting of just the kind of place you want to be in after a long day of travel adventures. The Willow cabin is immaculate and roomy with a wonderful view. The host Marilou could not have been more gracious and welcoming. I would definitely stay here again. Please read Johare's comments. They are lengthy but right on in explaining the Healy Heights Cabins.

So happy we chose to stay at Healy Heights Cabins for our honeymoon. We stayed in the North Ridge Cabin and were very pleased with it. We loved our homey little cabin that was all ours for the time being. It was clean, affordable, secluded, and a short drive to the Denali entrance. I would definitely stay there again.

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.

We were looking for lodging away from the hubbub in Glitter Gulch and came across Healy Heights because it suited our need for 2 rooms, and the reviews here were very good. I'll add to them because we were not disappointed, but I wouldn't quite call it a 5 rating either.

First off, there isn't much in Healy. 49th State Brewery & Restaurant was well worth the stop, and breakfast at Black Diamond Golf Course was good too, but that is about the limit of commercial Healy other than some dumpy looking hotels along the highway. But you are 10 minutes from the Glitter Gulch and National Park entrance, so it's a convenient stopping off spot that is much quieter. I enjoyed getting up in the mornings and going for a jog on the snow mobile roads.

The cabins are in a secluded hilly area just outside town and we saw moose every night. It is a really pretty spot, and the grounds are nice. The cabins are a great size, with small decks with gas grills, which would have been great if it didn't rain the whole time we were there. But that's Alaska.

We have mixed reviews about the interior of our cabin. It really offered us everything we wanted. They are very roomy, with living area, large kitchen, bathroom, and 2 bedrooms on the lofted 2nd floor. Each room has 2 double beds. We would have liked to see a queen or king in one of the rooms, but there is no way to fit 2 beds if you do that. So as far as the accommodations, I give it 2 thumbs up.

The downside is how dated and used the interior is. You do expect it a bit when you rent a cabin/cottage, but it's probably been 20+ years. There is so much potential in these cabins, but the kitchen, bathroom, furniture, nearly everything just needs an update. Even the linens and carpet were worn. Everything was clean, but just old.

I wouldn't discourage people from staying here. We enjoyed our stay, and we liked how much space there was to stretch out. The cabins really are great for a small group, and if you know what you're getting then you won't be disappointed at all. We'd readily stay again if they were updated, but probably not in their current condition.
