Located on the Chena river this lodge is clean, safe and driving distance to town. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom was very clean. Breakfast was included for us and was buffet style. Nice dining room for breakfast.

Booked through a Cruise tour, so we had no idea what to expect. Little cottages were cute and quiet. Nothing fancy, but certainly adequate. Had a drink and appetizer at their restaurant/bar with nice wait staff.

An afternoon on a sunny riverbank exemplifies the best of Interior Alaska; this place is built around that knowledge. Trim little cottages stand in a grassy compound along the gentle Chena River. Inside, each light, airy cottage is an excellent standard hotel room, with high ceilings and two queen beds. Outside, they're like a little village, where guests can sit on the patio, watch the river go by, soak up the midnight sun and socialize.

The best months are November - March. Your chance to see them is best when the weather is cold and clear. They are out in other months as well but those are the best months.
