My whole band stayed at the Wilderness Lodge on 4th of July weekend when we came to play at the Tok Independence Day celebration. We had seen pictures in a brochure and knew it would be good, but we were delighted to find it was WAY better than good. The cabin we stayed in had room to sleep four, one double bed in a separate bedroom and room for two more in a loft upstairs. Our cabin (Wolf's Den) also had en suite bathroom and a cozy sitting area, pretty much everything but a kitchen. There is also a nice porch where one can sit and read, play an instrument or just enjoy the spectacular setting. Breakfast and dinner are served in the main lodge, a stunning log structure that the hosts built themselves. John and Jill were so welcoming, helpful and kind. There is a nice outdoor gathering space with a fire pit and benches as well as a hot tub and large lawn. All this is in a true wilderness setting at the end of a two-mile gravel road. Every direction you look there are woods and mountains. It's absolutely gorgeous. We all loved our Independence Day weekend at the Wilderness Lodge.
