I had organized our tour in Alaska (June 28th- July 8th, 2013) considering the best feed back of Tripadvisor, and I want leave our special one for this lodge.
Alaska is a stunning place, really unique, but the tourism is not at top rated level for the structures of lodges and hotels. Peter,the managing director at kink river lodge, and all his staff made the difference!
Rooms are very cozy, and clean, the restaurant is very good, and the helicopter flight is unbelievable!! From the lodge is possible organize helicopter flight to the close glacier for a sled dog tour (amazing and funny!) or other activities... The see sight is terrific!!
A bit expensive but the best thing to do in Aladka!!

I found the Knik River Lodge because they offered a coupon in the Alaska tour saver book. This is a WONDERFUL place, coupon or not. The cabins are crisp and clean and simple, but beautiful. There are no bad cabins. The upper ones are staggered behind the lower ones. The lower ones have an unobstructed view, and the upper ones have a higher view. The surrounding area is wonderful. There are hikes all around. We hiked up Lazy Mountain (about a 20 minute drive away, which is very hard). You can fly to the glacier in a helicopter from the lodge (we did not) or just watch it fly in from your own porch. The best thing about Knik River Lodge is the gourmet restaurant in the yurt! Dinner and breakfast were awesome, with great wine and seafood and other selections at dinner. Best meal we had in Alaska. Plus we saw moose three times on the way to and from Knik River Lodge. Don’t miss it.

Room Tip: Select the lower row if available. If booking the upper row, try to get as close to the yurt as pos...

I was extremly impressed! They are better than most hotel rooms. Cabins have everything you could need except blackout curtains. Extremely clean. We had dinner there also and the ribeye was absolutely amazing. Add in a helicopter your too! It is worth every penny.

We were very satisfied with our stay at the Knik River Lodge. The cabin was very clean and comfortable, provided in-room coffee, and the view is beautiful. Peter is a wonderful host. We enjoyed both breakfast and dinner at the on-site dining room. The food is gourmet-- the chef, Andre, is wonderful. We decided to try the helicopter tour of Knik Glacier that leaves from the front of the lodge, and it was truly an amazing experience. Walking on the top of the glacier is not something you will soon forget. If you are looking for a unique experience and some quiet time away from it all, I recommend the Knik River Lodge.

I have eaten twice in the past 2 months at the Knik River Lodge. The food is world class. This is truly a hidden gem for dining in and around Alaska, and service is impecable. I had the opportunity to view one of the cabins. The cabins are clean, cozy, and well appointed. I would recomend this place highly for visitors to Alaska and locals alike.

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to visit Knik River Lodge in Palmer, Alaska while traveling with Explore Tours. By this point, we had covered quite a bit of ground in Alaska and had stayed in some pretty amazing places. We spent our last night at Knik River Lodge and it was easy to see that the best had been saved for last! The owners, Peter and Evelyn, must have looked long and hard before they discovered this beautiful mountain paradise in which to build their cabins. The cabins are quaint and nicely furnished with elegant touches such as an espresso machine in each one. The scenery alone took my breath away and then then there was the food! The food was customized for each person; prepared and cooked to perfection by their talented chef. Imagine a fine dining experience in the serenity of the beauty I just described. If you are planning a trip to Alaska, your trip will not be complete without a stay at Knik River Lodge. Trust me...the experience will remain in your memory for a long time to come.

My wife and I took the helicopter tour of the Knik glacier. The tour included an awesome dogsled ride in a gorgeous, snow-filled natural setting, and we were each given the opportunity to actually drive the dogsled. This was followed by a hike on the glacier. It was not a strenuous or dangerous experience (we were equipped with crampons and led by an experienced and capable guide). If you have never hiked on a glacier, it is unlike anything you may have done before. The landscape of the ice is dramatically beautiful and fascinating. Do not pass up this opportunity to see one of the wonders of the natural world.
