My wife and I stayed here during our holiday of Alaska in Feb / March 2013.

We came to Willow to watch the Iditarod mushers pass through and watched the event from the frozen swamp about 10 mins walk from the lodge. The locals were really friendly and we both really enjoyed the event. Shirley (the owner) had put on a nice homemade lunch at the lodge and we enjoyed eating some of this before heading down to the race.

The accommodation is rustic and quite basic but warm and dry and exactly what we wanted.

Breakfast the next morning was again home cooked and lovely and we were taken aback by the friendliness of everybody.

If you are out and about on a snowmachine (mobile) or heading for the river for some fishing in the summer. Stop and see Shirly and Ray! This is homestyle cookin' and service. It's like showing up at grandma's house. Fresh baked cinnamon rolls, biscuits and gravy and much much more. Full Coffee shop for your caffeine addiction or just for warming up.

Lovely Alaskan lodge with a great restaurant. Shirley cooks everything from scratch. Breakfast is served all day--and her biscuits and gravy can't be beat. The cinnamon buns are extraordinary. Limited menu for other meals, but daily specials are wonderful. This is where the locals go to eat. A great place to eat after an early morning fishing trip on the Deshka. Showers are available as well as cute log cabins out back to rent. This is real Alaska. In winter, many sled dog races pass through the lodge parking area as it is a checkpoint. Great place for snowmachiners to warm up as well. You can't go wrong stopping in here anytime! (They also have Wifi).
