A beautiful location deep inside Denali National Park. Indigenous owned and operated with Alaskan native staff that share their culture and traditions with guests. The road is closed shifting operations to a fly in/out operation with less guests on the property. Chef Melissa made the most amazing meals. The baked Alaska was a delight and it looked just like Mt Denali! The experience is very intimate and personalized. Highly recommend.

Our family was left refreshed, renewed, and refocused after visiting Kantishna Roadhouse! We are ready to book again!

Such an intimate experience we had in the back country of Denali National Park. The hospitality was excellent...from guided tours, and delicious meals, to the attentive staff. Not to mention the wildlife did not disappoint.

A Gem in Denali Park!

Kantishna Roadhouse in Denali Park is a once in a lifetime experience! From its unique and beautiful creekside location, to the great amenities, to the attentive staff, to the natural beauty of the park itself, it's a must-do for anyone who has the opportunity!

Late season solitude with a heavy dose of character

Visited late season (early Sept) 2023. The road closure is both a blessing and a curse. My husband and I were 2 of 4 guests at the time. It made for a very intimate experience, but also limited in options and social opportunities. We’re super flexible travelers so all of this was a-ok and taken in stride. Folks with different expectations might not be so amenable to all that. We had great hiking, but be advised that trail ratings are more ambitious than what is seen at other parks. What the interior of Denali calls a “moderate” hike, I would classify as “strenuous” anywhere else. And we aren’t entry-level hikers. Reading past reviews, I think Kantishna has really upped their food game. Our chef Melissa, was a big and enjoyable personality with a resume a mile long (hello Beat Bobby Flay season 11 episode 2) and I was delighted that lodge management allowed us (4) guests to pivot and spend an afternoon in the kitchen with her. She was delightful and I learned so much. I hope Kantishna continues to bring chefs like her in the future. The road closure presents some challenges - but enhances the remoteness of the experience. I really wish Kantishna would give us …say 15 minutes of internet a day…after breakfast and before hikes. (which they have, just won’t let you have any) so I could update my WSJ and local paper downloads. Total “off the grid” is anxiety provoking when you know the Wi-Fi is Right. There, and you have small kids/aging parents. Overall a great stay, expensive, but a wonderful rare experience to have the “end of the road” in Denali all to yourself.

Labor Day week stay

A truly special place. The sites, location, and people working there are all amazing. I highly recommend for literally anyone who enjoys the outdoors and seeing the amazing country in Denali. Avid hikers and those less inclined alike will enjoy what this place has to offer.
