    Enjoyed two tranquil nights on Kenai Lake. The view out the front door is incredible. Enjoyed fishing and skipping stones on the lake. Had a fire in pit by the shore. Kitchen made meal prep enjoyable. Staff was very helpful.More

    Spent 1 night in the woods. Wonderful place. Very clean and peaceful. Thank you. Someone complained about Gary not mailing stuff for him. Sad this is an issue as this service is not offered. Nature and smiles are willingly granted.
