- Behold the Majesty of Denali
- Feel the Tranquility
- Experience a true Alaska Wilderness Lodge
Caribou Lodge is located on a remote lake above timberline in the Talkeetna Mountains just southeast of Denali National Park and is closer to Mt. McKinley than the park headquarters or entrance. Nature and tranquility are our only neighbors. The location is our home year around and a private paradise in the Alaskan wilderness or “The Bush,” as it is known to Alaskans. The lodge offers fantastic views of Mt. McKinley and the Alaskan Range to the west and to the east overlooking the lake, stands the beautiful Talkeetna Mountains. Wildlife is generally good in the area, but keep in mind, it is not a zoo. It is wild country and wildlife come an go as they please. Caribou, moose, grizzly bears, sheep, black bears, wolves, coyotes, fox, wolverine, ermine, otters, eagles, short-eared owls, ptarmigan, ducks, loons, Canadian geese, and swans have all been observed from the comfort of the lodge and the cabins. Wildflowers abound mid July through August. The many berries come ripe in July. The long days of summer bring awesome sunrises and the tranquility of the Midnight Sun as it slips behind Denali is a sight to behold.
The aroma from the kitchen will make your mouth water. Hearty Alaskan meals are served family-style in the lodge. Sourdough pancakes and biscuits top your breakfast plate. Homemade jellies, breads, soups, pies, and pastries are just some of the delicious treats that you’ll experience.
A small and personal operation without the crowds. Caribou Lodge offers a relaxed learning experience with an Alaskan wilderness family. We have over 20 years living in The Bush, we know the country and wildlife well and enjoy sharing it with a limited number of guests. “Live like a local”, with locals! Come join us!
