Spent 3 weeks in Alaska and by far this is the place that sticks out in our memories. The owner, Jon, was very helpful and knowledgeable about Denali. He recommended a few hiking trails, rafting company, and restaurants. We are planning to go back to Denali and will return to EarthSong Lodge. Beds were comfortable, warm, light was blacked out...

Off the beating path, Earthsong offers a cozy clean log cottage. The owners Jon and Karin are welcoming and Jon was a wealth of information being a former Ranger...Treated us to a great slide show....They also raise wonderful sled dogs and provide information about them. Their restaurant is very good and their gift shop filled with lovely hand crafted items....

We spent three nights in the two bedroom Bush Pilot cabin during a two week road trip around Alaska last July. The location was perfect for us, because it was a way from the more touristy lodges near the Denali park entrance. The cabins are situated on a quiet road and we enjoyed sitting on the porch of the cabin...

IF you are looking for real quiet and solitude, this is the place for you. I have never had accommodations where you hear absolutely nothing. Still, easy to get to Denali park and restaurants. The cabin was cozy and clean. Small bathroom and friendly staff. THis is trylu off the beaten path (for a NYC girl, anyway).

Earthsong is a quaint, remote option a bit off the beaten path of the overpriced lodges in Denali – about 15-20 or so miles northwest of the park entrance. My cabin was clean and rather spacious – the room was very comfy, with excellent heat and great, comfy blankets & pillows. I got a heck of a sleep, and not...

karinjon, Owner at EarthSong Lodge - Denali's Natural Retreat, responded to this review

First I'll say that I appreciate the beginning section of Rob_Wolff's review. It does seem that he had a very comfortable night sleep after a long day in the Denali Backcountry. But there are a few other items in his review that need to be addressed by the owner. EarthSong Lodge is 17 miles from the Denali Park Entrance. The...

We stayed at EarthSong Lodge for 3 nights in August. We had our own personal cabin, which was cozy in size but had plenty of space for two of us. The only size issue was the bathroom shower, which resulted in a couple knocked elbows, but was sufficient. We really enjoyed having our own cabin space. There is a nearby...

My husband and I stayed at the Earthsong Lodge after making a last-minute change to our travel plans this summer, but I’m so glad that our travels led us there. Our host was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Nightly slideshows to learn about the area, daily opportunities to interact with the sled dogs (which have some fun & unique names!), and...

we choose earthsong because we did not want to stay in one of the overpriced lodges in denali. you will need a car to get to the lodge because it is a few miles off the highway. the property is comprised of about 15 small log cabins, each with their own bathroom. the cabins have either a daybded or chair...

I stayed at the Earthsong Lodge over a decade ago and had the opportunity to return. This trip was to experience the Denali Road Lottery 2016. The warm, kind Host, friendly hospitality, beautiful location and clean comfortable cabins are the BEST of the BEST! I'm already planning my next trip for 2017. Everyone should stay at the Earthsong Lodge. :-)
