    This wilderness lodge was fabulous. We arrived after a day of fishing on the Kenai River and a boat ride across Skilak lake. You can't see the lodge from the lake. We were met by friendly staff and graciously shown the grounds. Our cabin was...More

    Absolutely great place. Remote location that you can only get to by boat through AWA. I think the maximum capacity is only around 20 people. Very simple, but clean and comfortable cabins. Outstanding service from every staff member we had contact with. We stayed at...More

    We're so happy you enjoyed your stay at our backcountry gem. You're right - the lodge only accommodates about 18 guests to ensure a more intimate experience. We're truly lucky to have such an amazing chef staff, and we're proud of everyone on our team....More

    Comfortable cabins in a wonderful remote wilderness location. It takes some effort to get to the Lodge on Skilak but it is part of the experience. We rafted down the Kenai and then motored across the lake. The walks are great and aided by excellent...More

    Breathtaking. Bucolic. And beyond. We stayed at three lodges in Kenai and the food in this one was out of this world! All the more amazing given its remoteness and small kitchen in the old original cabin. The staff here and at the other lodges...More
