Tonglen Lake Lodge
Tonglen Lake Lodge is located 7 miles south of the main entrance to Denali National Park in a secluded wilderness setting away from the crowds. Owned and operated by long-time Denali resident and artist, Donna Gates. The Alaskan-style luxury cabins feature modern amenities: a king size bed, queen futon, down comforters and Egyptian cotton sheets, in-floor bathroom heating, and a cast iron hearth. There are also private wings available in the Guest House that are well suited to groups and families. The main lodge has a cafe and a restaurant for guests meals (included in their rate), a full bar and local artist gallery.
There are weekly performances and speaker events, as well as an outdoor theatre and campfire circle. Tonglen Lake Lodge is an ideal option for independent travelers who want to experience Denali National Park while enjoying the freedom of their personal schedule.
