My first impression of the lodge was not a very flattering one. The rooms had minimal facilities and lacked wifi. But this place's true beauty lies outside of it's rooms. Situated in a very beautiful location, the lodge has lovely surroundings and very homely atmosphere provided by it's common guest area. The guest area is where all activity happens. There's a nice bar, restaurant, fireplace with comfy chairs around it, board games, puzzles. The place has a warm, comfortable aura where you can easily spend your entire day while overlooking gorgeous views. Will definitely be going back here if I ever visit Denali again.
