Such attention to detail. From plates & utensils in the microwave to fresh cookies and a welcome card on arrival these folks really do everything to make your stay enjoyable. The "Village" has such beautiful and useful amenities all around the site it's so enjoyable to just walk around and find a new spot to sit and take in the serene surroudings. Huge plus was amazingly delicious food on site, which allowed us to maximize our time at Denali. Cabins were modern and clean, comfy beds, lovely bathrooms, beautiful decks overlooking the creek. I wish we cold have stayed here a week!

The website doesn't do this wonderful place justice! We were a bit apprehensive before we arrived, but we loved our creekside cabin, and the "cafe" offers quite high-class dining (and also decent packed lunches for a day in the park). The staff are extraordinarily nice, too, and very knowledgeable about what to do in the area.

Great Creekside Cabin and Cafe

Lovely cabin on what we discovered was a pretty sizeable, gushing river. Our Cabin had great views and was very comfortable and well equipped. If we needed towels changing, the staff were only too happy to oblige. We quickly discovered that buying food locally in Denali was prohibitively expensive for us Brits, so we were thankful for the take-out deli items we could buy from 6am from the cafe. Whilst it was expensive by our UK standards, it was delicious and we loved the blueberry scones. The restaurant is a deservedly popular spot but we were always seated and served quickly. Food was delicious albeit quite expensive consistent with the seasonal nature of Denali. A big shout out to the super hard-working, very friendly staff who make this a great place to stay if you are visiting Denali. I also loved the beautiful hanging baskets and planting arrangements.

We stayed in one of the cabins on the creek. It was incredibly clean, and super charming. The cabin is just feet from the creek and you can hear it running all night long which was awesome. There's also a beautiful view of the mountains surrounding you. Lots of nice seating outside by the creek, and deck chairs provided make it a very comfortable place to relax. The bed was comfortable, room was slightly small but adequate, & had a microwave, coffee pot, mini fridge. Coffee was provided, as well as basic toiletries and a great hair dryer. The whole property is very well kept, and is just beautiful with lots of gorgeous hanging baskets and flowers and shrubs everywhere. There was a nice restaurant, cafe with lots of sit down or to go options. Also a nice outdoor deck area by the restaurant to sit and have a glass of wine. The property is about 15 to 20 minutes south of Denali NP entrance. Also great pizzeria directly next to the property. You will not be disappointed if you stay here. There are no negatives!!

McKinley sets the bar high for cabin lodging in Alaska! We stayed at McKinley the first 2 days/ nights of our Alaska vacation and we were nothing but impressed. The grounds are beautiful, Cafe is excellent, staff is friendly, and location near Denali was perfect. We will recommend these cabins to anyone looking to visit Denali.
