“Interesting place”
Reviewed 26 September 2016

We stayed one night on our way from Fairbanks to Valdez. I think the season was coming to an end as there were few other guests and the hotel restaurant was only in use for breakfast. We had a very nice evening meal in the bar and a good chat with some of the locals. There were lots of stuffed animals around and interesting rusty machinery outside. The place had character. The cabin itself was somewhat basic and a bit too small for the small double and single beds in there. The bed linen and towels were also a bit too `rustic' and had seen better days. Overall though, a worthwhile stay.

Beautiful, old, historic building that used to be a carriage repair shop. Our tour group of 40 enjoyed a delicious lunch and historical presentation of the area under open wood beams. The grounds are interesting with informative signs about the buildings and people of the area. We did not see any of the lodge accommodations.

The Gakona lodge is a nice spot to relax after a long drive. The lodge is adjacent to the Gakona river. We had a camp fire right outside the cabin with the wood provided and dead wood around. A continental breakfast is provided. The person running the place is friendly and really laid back. Really enjoyed our stay.

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.

Room Tip: Cabins are great and roomy, 3 bedroom next to river

Lodge nice and too far away from Wrangell N. P.!. Two room for 4 people! Kitchen in good shape. small bathroom and poor. Breakfast available bar poor. Not ideal for families, but only for fishermen and adventurers! overpriced for what you get!
