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 10am.

The garage is reserved storage and the use of the owners. 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.***

Highly recommended house close to Denali

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. eight adults (4 couples) stayed for five days. Enough bedrooms for each couple. House had all supplies needed.

Only suggestion would be to have curtain in basement bathroom window. Couple did put towel up since many of us walked outside in evening and/or AM. Easy drive to Denali park. We were able to do day trips. We did get groceries in Anchorage prior to driving to house. Owners very easy to deal with. I would highly recommend this place while visiting Denali.

Excellent in every way

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious, clean, comfortable, convenient, and quiet. Perfect for our family. Adult sons in the basement. Parents upstairs. Each room was very spacious and comfortable. Convenient to Denali park (~10 minutes) and Healy restaurants (~15 minutes). In Healy were decent restaurants, a few coffee shops, grocery, gas, liquor store, almost whatever you need. Thank you Jessica for making the whole process easy!

Out standing place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I’m actually afraid to write this review as I’m worried this gem of a vacation rental will become so popular that we will never be able to stay there again! This was a perfect rental for our family (5 adults and 2 toddlers). The house upon arrival was in immaculate condition – felt so clean and fresh. The rooms were perfectly outfitted – pack ‘n plays for the small ones and comfy beds for the adults. Location was amazing – right at the base of Denali National Park … only took about 10-minutes to get to the visitor’s center. Even outside of the park but near the home, lots of amenities available – the amazing 229 Parks Restaurant (Top Chef contestant) and the Husky Homestead Tour (to not be missed) minutes away. Could not say enough about the owner’s responsiveness and hospitality. This is a special place!
