The Lodge

Located just seven miles south of the entrance to Denali National Park, Tonglen Lake now hosts Alaska-style luxury lodging for visitors seeking an exclusive Denali experience.  Tonglen Lake Lodge has become a vacation destination.

Traditional elegance enhances the views of Tonglen Lake and the towering mountains of the Alaska Range surrounding the lodge. Handcrafted log furniture, quilts, pottery, paintings and glass created by uniquely talented local artists accent the cabins, cafe, gallery and main lodge.

The exquisite central lodge, built with local logs, was crafted by Fairbanks area artisan builder, Alaskan Sprucepole Crafts.



If You Are Searching...

for a true cabin-in-the-woods getaway, Tonglen Lake Lodge offers ten exclusive, hide-away style cabins where you can enjoy the beauty and solitude of the Alaskan Interior.

Savor the feeling of a remote, natural resort only minutes away from Denali National Park. Start your day at the Artisan Cafe with an espresso accompanied by a pastry from our on-site bakery.

In the evening relax and soak in the views while enjoying a glass of wine and hors d'oeuvres on the Lodge deck with owner, host, artist and long-time Denali resident, Donna Gates.
