Each cabin is uniquely appointed, with elegant Craftsman furniture and a quintessentially Alaskan devotion to primal comforts. Stained glass windows, a cherry writing desk, plush leather furniture.
Although you know every touch of civilization was either hand made on site or carefully selected and flown here by the Claus family, it’s hard to picture that armchair strapped into the back of the little plane you rode in. Or this wrought-iron stove. The attention to detail and unique wilderness charm of each cabin instantly makes you feel at ease and at home.
Each evening you return to the lodge and to your cabin which is uniquely handcrafted using local timber and serves as a cozy and welcoming home in the wilderness. Each cabin is arrranged differently, some with two bedrooms, one room boasting an over-stuffed King size feather bed, a full bathroom and an amply furnished sitting room with amazing views of the Chitina River and surrounding mountains. We also have a cedar sauna/self-spa that makes for a great place to relax after a full day of adventuring.
Dining is in the main lodge building and features gourmet meals prepared with fresh Alaskan ingredients. We have a large organic garden on site and grow most of our own veggies. Salmon and wild game are also harvested locally. Special dietary needs can be accommodated with add-on meal packages.
We take great care to ensure that you can relax with every comfort and enjoy the best that the wilderness has to offer! With a maximum of 12-14 guests at a time you will find the lodge is an oasis of relaxation and personal experience.
The mighty, braided Chitina River.
The lodge sits on the left bank and looks out to the South over the endless, unnamed, snowcovered mountain peaks.
