North America’s largest mountain is right outside your window when you stay at this modern wilderness lodge. The big advantage here: you get great proximity to both the town of Talkeetna and Denali National Park, while also being set apart from the summer crowds. Rooms offer nine-foot ceilings, fans and some amazing mountain view. Relax in the Great Room with its huge stone fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows, or in the outdoor hot tub while you enjoy views of Mount McKinley.
Easy Access to Activities
Activities of course can be arranged by the Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge tour desk. Put yourself in one of the planes you see flying above, and get close to McKinley. Go jetboating, horseback riding, rafting, hiking, or choose from many other activities. If you don’t want to leave the lodge grounds, stroll one of the three nature trails, either on your own or on a guided, park ranger-led walk.
Diverse Dining and Entertainment
You may be tucked away in the wilderness, but you won’t lack for anything. With four different food outlets to choose from, you’re covered any time of day, whether you like a cup of morning coffee or a full breakfast; a lunchtime sandwich or a pizza; a casual dinner or a fresh Alaskan feast. And be sure to sit out on the deck and enjoy an Alaskan microbrew as the setting sun glints off 20,320 feet of mountain.
Other options at the lodge include "Denali: Into the Dream," a photo-and-music show that transports you through Alaska, from Mt. McKinley to the Northern Lights.
