Rustic backcountry luxury at Winterlake Lodge, Alaska 61° 59′ N 152° 04′ W
The Trapper’s Cabin
This cabin sits at the far-east end of our property and is connected to the main lodge by a rolling path. It is the old homestead site of Mr. Gene Leonard, whom you’ll learn plenty about! The log construction is representative of most old Alaskan bush homes, and much of the furniture is handmade in the Alaska style. Imagine what life was like as a trapper here in the far north at the turn of the century.
The cabin has a queen bed located in a separate bedroom, a simple private bath, additional sleeping for two people in single beds, and a large spacious living room. Sit on the porch and watch eagles fly by – or your helicopter landing nearby to pick you up for a mountain adventure. The cabin operates on its own generator, which your guide will gladly manage for you.
The Red Lake Trail Cabin
This log cabin sits near the lodge on the west side of the property. The cabin accommodates seven people in three separate bedrooms, each with a queen bed, two with additional single beds. There is a simple private bath and a small living room in this cabin.
The view of the lake is lovely, particularly at sunset. This is an original log cabin to the property and it will be renovated in the fall for 2011.
The Iditarod Cabin
We cut dead standing trees, peeled the logs, and built the cabin on site together when our daughters were young girls. Large picture windows look over the lake and the small deck is the place to be at sunrise. The cabin offers a queen bed and one twin in a loft area. This cabin offers a roomy private bath.
The Mountain Pass Cabin
This cabin is situated closest to the main lodge. It offers a log queen bed, roomy private bath, comfy open-style living room and a rocker on the deck.
The Happy River Cabin
Why name a cabin after a river? It’s one of our favorite places to go to from the lodge. This cabin offers a nice lake view, artisan log bed and open-style living room area, and roomy private bath. This cabin sits next to our hiking trail to go see the swans on Red Lake.
