Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge Review

"Elegantly rustic" might best describe this sprawling complex approximately 45 miles from Seward, on a bluff overlooking the Kenai River. Paths lead from the main lodge to charming bungalows, each containing four spacious units. Buildings higher on the bluff house eight units. Each has a king or two double beds, a wood-burning fireplace, a comfortable sitting area, and a porch. Vaulted ceilings of natural-finish wood complement the Alaskan art prints on the walls. Staff can arrange for fishing, flightseeing, horseback riding, and river rafting. There's also a nature trail. The Eagle's Crest Restaurant serves a variety of Alaska fare, including seafood, and the Rafter's Lounge offers a good menu of bar food and local beers that can be enjoyed on the spacious deck overlooking the river.
