We planned on staying in Cooper Landing just one night, but we were so impressed with Drifters Lodge that we stayed 3 nights...and would have stayed longer if our plane didn't leave the next day! When we arrived, the extremely helpful and charismatic staff offered to start a fire for us, at 10PM! The fire pit is situated at the perfect spot looking over the bluest river I've ever seen in my life. Our jaws dropped when we saw the inside of the cabin. It is so far from the cheap looking hotel furniture we were used to. We stayed at the anchorage hilton earlier, which wasn't nearly as nice. The beds were incredibly comfy and the view from the cabin was breathtaking! We had a great time getting to know the staff, who were so friendly and helpful. You could tell they loved working there. They took us down the river on the raft for a scenic and informative tour. We saw so many bald eagles and a bear. There's also a relaxing sauna that overlooks the river. I can't wait to come back! It was such a relaxing retreat.
