What Guests Are Saying

"Imagine sitting on the deck of your tent at the edge of the river, watching the salmon make their way up the river and listening to the sound of wilderness. This is my idea of heaven. If your idea is a Hilton with room service, this is not the place for you. But if you want a lovely setting with warm and friendly hosts, along with a chance to experience the true Alaska Interior, don't miss this place."
