Private Lunch in the Carriage House.

Beautiful, old, historic building that used to be a carriage repair shop. Our tour group of 40 enjoyed a delicious lunch and historical presentation of the area under open wood beams. The grounds are interesting with informative signs about the buildings and people of the area. We did not see any of the lodge accommodations.

Great Visit.

The Gakona lodge is a nice spot to relax after a long drive. The lodge is adjacent to the Gakona river. We had a camp fire right outside the cabin with the wood provided and dead wood around. A continental breakfast is provided. The person running the place is friendly and really laid back. Really enjoyed our stay.

Authentic Alaskan Experience

We stayed here for just one night but loved it. Our room was in the far corner of the main lodge. It was a large, clean, comfortable room. The house is just as described: historic Alaskan lodging. It felt like I was staying an my great-grandma's house...and that's a good thing. It felt homey and comfortable. A great value. Continental breakfast at the restaurant a few steps away was great. This was the last night of our Alaskan adventure and we're glad we spent it at the Gakona Lodge.

Great Place to Stay

I had a really good experience staying at gakona lodge. The owner and staff were very helpful at all times. Really liked my cabin and the food at the restaurant was excellent. I was also impressed by how well the Wi-Fi operated in such a remote area. This place gives you good access to the incredible Wrangell St. Elias National Park too!
