Cantwell Lodge offers rooms with private restrooms, a bar "The Longhorn Saloon" and a restaurant "Cantwell Café ". There are Three hiking Trails to explore. one will get you a view of MT. Denali, another will take to an elevated view of the astonishing Broad Pass Alaska, hiking the last trail will land you in Denali National Park, about a 6 mile hike. It is a 27 Mile drive to the entrance to Denali National Park. You may also have an opportunity to view, from the lodge, the engines of The Alaska Railroad.
I have lived in Cantwell for 54 years, my husband since 1990. My family originally came to the area in 1958 & lived in the "bush" for many years. My father was a registered guide & outfitter. My brother still flies one of his airplanes & lives in Alaska. We enjoy every season, love to snowmachine every winter & love living here. My family also owns the Runway House B&B across the runway.
In this area folks enjoy hiking, berry picking, cross country skiing, snowmachining & enjoying the peace & quiet. Dog Gone It sled dog tours are 3/4 of a mile up the road, Atkins Flying Service is our neighbor & the Denali Highway is here. Denali National Park is 27 miles north of us & has lots to do up there. Our beagle, Daisy, enjoys visiting & a little snack every now & then.
