Winter: $3 pints of craft IPA beers! 3PM-8PM Wednesday & Thursday, 12PM-8PM Friday, Saturday & Sunday. $20 restaurant credit/cabin/NT. Gwin's Lodge is the closest restaurant and lodging to the confluence of ...More the Kenai and Russian Rivers, the world's best salmon fishery. We are nestled at the base of the majestic Kenai Mountains in the Chugach National Forest, and across from the turquoise waters of the Kenai River. Our central location (about 100 miles from Anchorage, 50 miles from Seward, and 50 miles from Kenai) makes all indoor and outdoor recreational activities throughout the Kenai Peninsula easily accessible to our guests. Whether it's fishing, viewing wildlife, sightseeing, rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, hiking, or panning for gold, make Gwin's Lodge your recreational headquarters! Famous full-service restaurant. Our tackle store is stocked with fishing tackle and equipment, convenience items, and Alaska souvenirs. We can book your guides and excursions free of cost. Less
