Winterlake Lodge

Remote and Peaceful… along Alaska’s Iditarod Trail 61° 59′ N 152° 04′ W

Situated near the western edge of the Alaska Range, Winterlake Lodge offers seclusion and spectacular scenery. Views of the Trimble Glacier and the beginnings of the Rainy Pass are visible from the lake.

Winterlake Lodge offers five guest cabins, nestled along a mile-long lake that is home to nesting loons and swans. A main lodge sits near the middle of the property. Kayaks and boats are available to explore the lake.

Adventures Abound

Behind the lodge, Wolverine Mountain offers intriguing hiking, helicopter-assisted trekking, and wildlife viewing. We have many species of Alaska birds, wildflowers and berries that are difficult to see in other locales.

Winterlake Lodge is also the starting point for neighboring adventures. We float the Happy River, fish the Canyon Creek area, and explore the Upper Skwentna River and scenic Red Creek. We offer daily exploration opportunities.

The lodge also offers a wellness program featuring complimentary massage and yoga classes, daily cooking classes, cheese tastings, and more.


Winterlake Lodge is located 198 trail miles northwest of Anchorage, Alaska, along Alaska’s historic Iditarod Trail. The lodge sits on 15 acres, overlooking a finger-shaped 2-mile lake where we land by floatplane in the summer and ski plane in the winter.
