In the summer of 2001, the property’s current stewards began construction on the lodge and a vision of transformation, renewal, adventure and easy hospitality. Each uniquely designed guest room nods to Alaska’s pioneer heritage and the work of local artisans may be found throughout. Since then, it has played host to adventurers and other countless special events.
Black Rapids Roadhouse
Located on the road below the lodge, the 100-year-old roadhouse was established around 1904 to serve travelers on the 386-mile Valdez-Fairbanks Trail. As a main travel corridor, roadhouses were common in the early 20th century, though only few remain today. The restored roadhouse was added to the National Register of Historic places in 2002.
