          Absolutely great place. Remote location that you can only get to by boat through AWA. I think the maximum capacity is only around 20 people. Very simple, but clean and comfortable cabins. Outstanding service from every staff member we had contact with. We stayed at...More

          Breathtaking. Bucolic. And beyond. We stayed at three lodges in Kenai and the food in this one was out of this world! All the more amazing given its remoteness and small kitchen in the old original cabin. The staff here and at the other lodges...More
