“Cozy Lodge/B&B”
Reviewed 5 July 2009

Located in Healy, just 15-20 minutes from the Denali Park entrance. Found this place on the internet, said it offered free transportation for guests. Most places in Healy are out of reach to guests without rental cars. Since we would arrive in Denali by motorcoach from Seward, I wanted some sort of means of free transportation. Most lodges near the Denali park entrance are congested with tour buses or don't offer much scenery or tranquility. There were no reviews of this lodge on tripadvisor, so I was rolling the dice when I booked this place for 1 night. When I called to make the reservation, Mitch, the owner was very friendly. I stayed in the room with private bath.
Our motorcoach dropped us off at Princess Lodge and Faith Hill's manager, Sumarian picked us up immediately in her van. Sumarian is quite a fascinating person; she's sweet, well-knowlegdable of the area, and is a terrific cook. If you're curious and open-minded, she'll tell you everything (the good and bad) about residing in Alaska.
The lodge is set along a hillside, about half-mile from a coalmine and 1 mile from the train tracks. The scenery is beautiful. The wildlife nearby includes beavers, moose, hares, coyotes, squirrel. All wildlife were bountiful. Besides the occasional audible train running by, it was very quiet. The rooms were clean, with basic amenities (bathtub, shower, hot water, satellite TV). FYI: The only cell phone service provider in the area was AT&T according to Sumarian.
Breakfast was delicious. We met Mitch the owner. He was working on adding more rooms. He essentially built the entire lodge from scratch.
In the morning, Sumarian was abe to set up a dog sled kennel tour at the EarthSong Lodge. That was enjoyable. We met John the owner and dog sled trainer. My husband and John are sci-fi fans; so my husband got a kick out of the dogs being named after Battlestar Galactica characters.
Afterwards Sumarian drove us to catch our bus into Denali park. She is such a doll!

Traveling through Healy on a 3-week, two thousand mile trek around Alaska, my husband, 1 1/2 year-old daughter and I were so pleased we decided to stay overnight at Denali Faith Hill Lodge Bed and Breakfast before our day trip to Denali National Park. The owner was incredibly friendly and the log-style home was remarkably comfortable and clean throughout. Our room was spacious, had it's own private bathroom, satellite TV, cell service, two very comfortable beds and sheets that smelled so clean and fresh! It was a refreshing and quiet night of sleep - we woke up to the caretaker serving hot waffles, eggs, and sausage in the living room before we left. The price was excellent and the location is perfect for a short drive to Denali National Park, or a bit longer north to Fairbanks. We highly recommend it! It was our best overnight throughout our trip.
