About the property

The perfect wilderness retreat from Alaska families to world travelers.

King's Deer Lodge gives you the freedom to experience Alaska without the commercialized bustle of Denali Park central. Enjoy views of the Alaska Range from every window and embark on local adventures of every kind.

King's Deer Lodge is a beautiful log home situated on five wooded acres 9 miles from Denali National Park Road. 229 Parks Restaurant & Tavern and the Prey restaurant are within a mile and open during the summer season. Denali National Park has visitor services year round.

The main floor of the lodge is lighted by large picture windows and rustic stained glass lamps. The kitchen is equipped with double ovens and a large refrigerator. There are two dining tables and stoneware dishes and utensils for 12. A Natuzzi leather couch provides rest and relaxation while a large selection of DVDs is available for entertainment.

Upstairs is the family room and three bedrooms. The McKinley Suite consists of the spacious master bedroom with a king size bed, queen bed, private bathroom, and jetted tub. The Bush Pilot room is furnished with a Queen bed. The Bear room has a double bed. There is a shared bathroom down the hall with a shower and large vanity. Large groups may request additional mattresses and sleeping bags.

Guests at King's Deer Lodge are responsible for meals and general housekeeping during their stay. We recommend purchasing groceries before you come to Denali. Anchorage, Wasilla, or Three Bears at Talkeetna road junction have reasonable prices. Check-in is 4pm and check-out is 11am.

Our family may access the garage during your stay. There is a large unfinished basement with a bathroom, 2 double beds and 4 twin beds.

***New October 2015. King's Deer Lodge is rented to one group at a time. Renting the McKinley and Northwest Suites separately has been discontinued.***

Great location and size.

Honestly the only thing that could have made it better...a hot tub!

I wish I could've stayed longer.

  • 5 of 5

The place rocked. My wife and I had the master which had 1 king and 1queen plus are own bathroom. The living area outside master was where everyone hung out . my brother and his family had two rooms, with a bathroom. My son slept way downstairs. The main level had an awesome kitchen and deck.

Clean and safe. Love it.

Family trip to Denali

  • 5 of 5

Kings Deer Lodge was such an amazing place for our family to unwind after the busy days we had at the park and surrounds . We loved the privacy of being alone and loads of space for our 5 teenagers!! The lodge was very clean, wifi, games all the amenities! I highly recommend! We came from Boston and would love to return someday again!!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience with our stay at King's Deer Lodge. From start to finish, everything was perfect. The booking and communication process was easy. Instructions while at the cabin were simple to follow. Location can't be beat. The cabin itself is beautiful and spacious and well supplied. We only wish we could have stayed longer. 5 stars for sure! Thank you!

Fantastic Wild Alaska

  • 5 of 5

The King's Deer Lodge outside Denali National Park is a truly outstanding accommodation. We travel around the world & it ranks up with our very top experiences. We stayed for 4 days from April 28-May 2, 2017, but it's worth a longer visit. Although we were a couple, it's spacious enough for multiple groups. Luxuriously equipped with high quality furnishings, beds, and linen, as well as a full kitchen to allow for reasonably comprehensive cooking at home. Having a large washing machine & dryer was also really helpful. Very close to Denali with all its splendors, the location of the lodge was itself in the beautiful wild of Alaska (our first night, we saw a wolf stroll by). The hosts were pleasant and responsive, but we had no real need to contact them during the stay because everything was so well provided, along with a useful information sheet about the Lodge and the area. We can give this VRBO listing our highest recommendation.

Big Beautiful log cabin just a few miles from the park entrance

  • 5 of 5

Brought my parents in during the spring shoulder season and although not much was open around the park, we loved the quiet and being able to explore on our own without swarms of other tourists. The cabin is clean and has tons of space. The addition of making the basement part of the rental was not needed by our group of 3, but would be a perfect bunkhouse for kids while 3 or four couples enjoy the bedrooms upstairs.
