Rustic Luxury in the Snowy Backcountry

The owners of the Winterlake Lodge are Alaskans who, from late January through late April, open the doors of their winter home to share with you. In addition to authentic Alaskan hospitality, your stay at the lodge is custom tailored to your interests and private activities can include learning to guide your own sled dog team, cross-country skiing, or snowshoeing through Alaska’s backcountry. Return to the lodge each evening and enjoy the lodge’s famous cuisine while waiting for the Aurora Borealis to make an appearance.
