Fodor's Review

One of Alaska's oldest roadhouses, Gwin's is the epicenter of much activity on the peninsula and a one-stop shop providing food, lodging, and fishing tackle. The lodge becomes an anglers' headquarters during the annual salmon runs on the nearby Russian and Kenai rivers. Accommodations vary from dry fisherman's cabins ($) to chalets with lofts, vaulted ceilings, and full kitchens ($$$$). The restaurant ($$) serves a full menu of fresh fish when available, sandwiches, steaks, and hearty breakfasts. The travel agency here can book fishing, hiking, rafting, and other adventure travel anywhere on the peninsula.
