Travelling from Fairbanks to Anchorage by car, a good mid-point to stop and enjoy the scenery and fish if you have time. It's a quaint little lodge with stand alone cabins and lodge accommodation that are authentic in build, the way they used to be, but very comfortable. We went in late August 2016 so it was cool but lovely outside the cabin in the afternoon sun. Bar in lodge has great locals and very friendly atmosphere of the real Alaska. It is not a place for five star type of people, but one for those who like it cosy and convivial. Breakfast is help yourself continental style and very easy. No cooking but sustaining whilst we were there. Restaurant may be closed at night, and if so they make snacks at bar for you. An experience staying there not to be missed.
