We stayed for one night at this rustic Lodge and was not disappointed. This was a great place to introduce to our four friends what rural Alaska is all about. We enjoyed our cabin stay. We also enjoyed the nearby bar and the dinner at the little restaurant was awesome! In fact of all the salmon we ate during our two week stay in Alaska, the Copper River salmon was the best! Most of our group ordered the salmon which was cooked to perfection. The following breakfast was simple but met our needs since we had to travel northward to Fairbanks. The innkeepers were friendly and most accommodating. All we wanted was a clean, comfortable place for one night sharing the gorgeous Alaskan scenery. To me, this is what traveling is all about. Would definitely stay at the Gakona Lodge again. Kudos to the staff for their responsiveness and pride in the overall operation of the Gakona Lodge.
