Winterlake Lodge is a sister property to Tutka Bay Lodge.

Situated on the western edge of the Alaska Range, Winterlake Lodge settles you into wild and rugged mountains, glaciers, and the historic Iditarod trail.

Winterlake lodge nestles on fifteen acres along Mile 198 of the Historic Iditarod Trail. The lodge overlooks Finger Lake where we land by float plane in the summer and ski plane in the winter. The property offers five individual guest cabins, a central main lodge, gardens, sled dog lot, and a sauna house. The hand built, knotty pine guest cabins provide luxury and cozy space to rest and rejuvenate after a day’s adventure.

Adventures Abound

Wolverine Mountain, behind the lodge, offers quick access to spectacular and varied hiking trails with access to view points of Mt. Denali, migrating birds, wildflowers and berries that are difficult to see in other locales.

Winterlake Lodge is the starting point for adventure, float and fish our favorite nearby rivers, land on surrounding glaciers, hike wild flower meadows and summit ridge lines in the Tordrillos. We offer daily exploration opportunities.

For all lodge guests we offer complimentary massage, yoga classes, daily cooking classes, cheese tastings, and personalized service.
