    Accomodated us last minute, very clean room with great added touches (coffee, takeaway cups and so on). Room is simple, but very cosy. Great onsite restaurant and lovely place to sit by the water.

    Great location in proximity to Denali- 20 minute drive, but worth it to be away from the massive cruise ship facilities. Comfortable beds and plenty of pillows. Basic items in kitchen. Kids loved the fire pit and the small stream. View from...
