Fodor's Expert Review Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge

Sterling Hwy., Cooper Landing, Alaska, 99572, USA

"Elegantly rustic" might best describe this sprawling complex approximately 45 miles from Seward. Paths lead from the main lodge to charming bungalows, each containing four spacious units. Buildings higher on the bluff house eight units. Each unit has the look and feel of a mountain cabin and has a king or two double beds, a wood-burning fireplace, a comfortable sitting area, and a porch. Staffers can arrange for fishing, flightseeing, horseback riding, and river rafting. There's also a nature trail. The Eagle's Crest Restaurant serves Alaskan 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.
