Beautiful Alaska setting near Denali national Park reservations stream going right by the property. Have stayed there many times. Staff is friendly. Cabins are great.

The room was clean and spacious. We loved the restaurant and bakery. The chili and cornbread was so good and the cinnamon rolls were yummy.

What an amazing place to stay! First, we received emails on what to expect on our way up there. When we got to our cabin, it blew away our expectations. We had a running stream in front of our cabin. It was so peaceful. Our room was wonderful! So much room and decorated so cute! Loved that there was no TV, so you had to get outside (why would you need a tv anyway?). There was a cute area for games and just enjoying the outdoors. The food was amazing for breakfast and dinner. I highly recommend a cinnamon roll-Texas size. I absolutely love this place and wish we could have stayed longer.

This is a darling little compound on the river, there are single cabins you can rent or 2up 2 down rooms with kitchenette amenities:-) The breakfast was delicious!! We really enjoyed our stay, the staff was friendly and the grounds were nice.

Beautiful brand new chalet. We even had a moose onsite that we saw every day. Well worth the money. Everything was new & had that extra touch of full size shampoo & conditioner. Food was great in the cafe as well

The cabin is beautiful and clean. The hosts were very kind and helpful. The kitchen was fully equipped. There was lots and lots of hot water. We had just camped for 6 days, so we all needed long hot showers. There was a large parking area and it was nicely private.

The cabins & cafe are along main highway but one doesn't hear the traffic noise unless your cabin faces the highway. Our cabin was off to the back. The cabin's bathroom was recently updated, however the sink countertop was the only area to lay sundries. The small fridge had a countertop where coffee maker was stored & cluttered with paper plates/cups, sugar & cream. The small table & 2 chairs were very handy. The carpet was nearing it's life end. The cafe on site was fantastically yummy. Homemade cooking was outstanding. The cafe makes up for the rustic accommodations .

we paid so much for this cabins that I'm not sure if it's worth half of it . It's close to Denali that's a plus. Cabins are average,no TV and phone,WI FI sucks,beautiful creek runs but u can here road (hwy) more than stream.Our room had problems with heater ,was fixed next day but first morning was awful to wake up with kids after 23 F night temperature outside. On site it's a very nice patio/fire pit/grill area but they where not prepared ,we run out of propane when grilling and they didn't have replacement ;( about the cleanliness ,lifted a cusion from dinner table and... Felt discussed for the rest of our stay .Before check out had a coffee on a patio and saw mate going from cabin to cabin cleaning it in less then 10 min ,now I'm not sure if the bedding were changed at all . Paid over 300$ per night

Pleasant cottages, some with microwave & refrigerator. Chairs on the creek for relaxing. The gazebo was a nice place to gather with friends, but bring your bug repellent. The restaurant on premises was okay. However, the cottages are about 13 miles from entrance to Denali National Park and any other facilities.

Peaceful location and great cabin. We had an all around great time!

From check in to check out, we were pleased with our stay here. The cabins are quaint, modern and peaceful. There is a community porch with activities such as games or just a place to gather with others. There is also a fire ring that you can use (smores items are for sale at the desk). Staff was friendly and accommodating. Also, easily found from the road. Would stay here again in a second!

Thanks Edwin, we appreciate the recommendation! We are so thankful to have guests come back and visit more than once. But Alaska has that way of stealing a place in your heart.

Thank you, we are so glad you enjoyed your time with us. The secret to the chili is hominy...it's sooo good. But perhaps I'm biased.

nice cottages on fast flowing creek

Everyone

Pleasant cottages, some with microwave & refrigerator. Chairs on the creek for relaxing. The gazebo was a nice place to gather with friends, but bring your bug repellent. The restaurant on premises was okay. However, the cottages are about 13 miles from entrance to Denali National Park and any other facilities.
