It’s just 20 miles south of Anchorage, but this year-round lodge —set on eight acres against the Chugach State Park, and with sweeping views of Turnagain Arm—feels like you’ve ventured deep into the wilderness. It makes a scenic and convenient blast-off point for adventures into the Kenai Peninsula, but the property is also home to a historic mine where you can learn about prospecting and pan for gold yourself.
