We chose Gakona Lodge because of it's central location to many adventures. We stayed longer because of the incredible food, company, and relaxing atmosphere. We were never disappointed. This place is full of history! The staff was all very helpful! The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The sheets and towels were clean and fresh smelling. I did not see a bit of clutter or dust. The only bugs we dealt with were the mosquitos. The staff was quick to offer spray for those! The best part of our stay was the food. It was the best of the best! Breakfast always had delicious homemade muffins. Dinner was excellent every night. We tried everything on the menu plus the daily specials. I highly recommend the chicken fried steak. The pretty little cook is from Texas and she knows how to do it right! The meatloaf was the best I have ever had! Salmon may have been my favorite. Fresh and seasoned perfectly. Great salad bar and wonderful homemade soup! The owners are new but they are catching on quickly and doing a great job!
