Knik River Lodge is about an hour outside of Anchorage. The drive was all paved and the views were amazing the entire journey. We came in May, so even though it was almost 9pm when we arrived, there was still a ton of sunlight. We wandered around the property until about 11:30, before calling it a night (sun was still...

We absolutely adored this place. We were slightly unsure where we were heading on the journey to the cabins, which are a 25 minute-drive out of Palmer, but we were not disappointed once we arrived.We stayed for a couple of nights during April, with the snow just starting to clear (the roads were fine!). The service was friendly from the...

The cabins are nice - very clean with a large, comfortable bed. The restaurant on site is pricing, but very good food. We also took one of the helicopter tours available on site which was very convenient. Staff was very friendly. The highlight of the lodge, though, is the location. It is so beautiful here. The cabin has a mini...

Our cabin was cozy and clean (the gas fireplace was on when we arrived) and several DVD's had been selected for us and left in our room. The setting is absolutely stunning; remote and quiet. The front porch is a great place to relax with a hot cup of tea and listen to the sounds of nature.

We enjoyed a wonderful day of heli tour and dinner specially prepared for friends and family of the family matriarch. Fantastic weather (I'm sure lodge personnel had something to do with it :>), a delicious dinner and great staff made for a memorable experience. The comment of the day? 'I had no idea this place was here!' And this was...

My husband and I stayed here during an Alaskan Land tour. What an amazing site.....the cabins all have a view of the mountains and have a small porch.
