Visit Denali's Kantishna Roadhouse. The native-owned, full service lodge is located deep in the heart of Alaska's majestic Denali National Park & Preserve at the end of the park road in Kantishna. We invite you to spend your days viewing Denali's abundant wildlife and breathtaking wilderness while relaxing in the evenings in our beautiful and unique lodge, with all the comforts of home. The lodge has a long-standing Alaskan tradition of hospitality, native heritage and history. The original Kantishna Roadhouse was built in the early 1900s, serving as a private residence, a community center, a post office, and informal accommodations for those who came visiting the Kantishna area. Through years of hard work, the roadhouse has evolved from a gold miner's tent camp into a modern Alaskan resort with a rustic flavor. The 32 full-service cabins were built in 1993 constructed of freshly stripped and shiny varnished Sitka spruce logs overlooking Moose Creek. The first building entering the property is a lovely, historic cabin built in 1906, complete with a sod roof garden of wildflowers growing on top. This was the official State recorder's log cabin where miners recorded their claims. The beautiful main lodge features the dining area, a new library resource room, a hand-crafted bar, and a spacious lobby.
