50% deposit is required on all reservations within 10 days of booking your trip. Balance due 30 days prior to arrival. Written notice of confirmation will be sent when deposit is received. Dates are booked and confirmed in the order that deposits are received. A refund of the deposit, minus a 20% administrative charge of the total price, will be given for cancellations outside of 90 days prior to your arrival date. Cancellations made less than 90 days prior to scheduled arrival date, will result in the total balance being due and payable at the time of cancellation. We require written notice of cancellation. Non-appearance will result in no refunds. Because bookings are made so far in advance, there will be no reduction in rates or refunds for guests who voluntarily eliminate any of the services included in the booking rate, or who depart the lodge prior to the end of their scheduled stay. No refunds on early departures, missed fishing trips or fishing trips/lodging that you may cancel after arrival. We recommend trip insurance.
Please keep in mind that it will take you a minimum of 4 hours after your arrival in Anchorage to retrieve your baggage, rent a vehicle, drive to the lodge, etc. Since our day normally starts very early in the morning (4 am), we ask that all guests plan to arrive no later than 7pm at the lodge and 3pm for the flight into Anchorage. Therefore, if your flight arrives in Anchorage close to or after 5pm, you should consider staying over in Alaska's largest city for the evening and traveling at a leisurely pace to the lodge the following day. Hourly commuter flights are available from Anchorage to the Kenai airport. You will find the drive from Anchorage to the lodge will traverse some of the most scenic beauty in North America.
Rental vehicles are available in either Anchorage or at the Kenai Airport. There are no restaurants within walking distance of the lodge. Our insurance does not allow us to rent/loan our vehicles.
Please note that our lodge/cabin facilities are non-smoking. We appreciate your cooperation in not smoking inside any of the facilities.
