Fodor's Review

This lodge is comprised of 7 cabins either situated around a pond or creekside. Each has a woodstove and an electric heater. Interior walls are chinked logs, beds have colorful quilts, and the lighting fixtures are modeled after gold rush–era styles. The cabins vary in size, but the largest sleeps up to six and has its own bath. A central bathhouse has hot showers and toilets, and all guests have access to the sauna. The excellent dinner house offers five-course fine dining, with nightly specials, local seafood, and smoked-salmon chowder (the house specialty) every day. The food is reason enough to make the 16-mile side trip to Hope from the Seward Highway.
