*PLEASE NOTE:  Mother Nature can be fickle!  Mud slides can close the Park Road and the Alaska Railroad.  Fires can close the only road between Fairbanks and Anchorage.  WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND TRAVEL INSURANCE!   Because we are a very small operation, we must be very strict with our cancellation policy.

Method of Payment

We accept credit cards (Visa, Mastercard and Discover), checks in U.S. funds drawn on a U.S. bank, and wire transfers for international reservations.

Please scroll to the bottom of the page to review our adjusted payment and cancellation policy in light of the uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak. This will apply to all 2020 reservations.


A deposit of 25% is due at the time of booking

Balance of Payment - adjusted 2020 policy below

Reservations must be paid in full 60 days prior to arrival.

Cancellations - adjusted 2020 policy below

Cancellations made over 60 days prior to arrival date will receive a full refund less a $100 service fee.  Cancellations made 60-30 days prior to arrival date will receive a 50% refund.  Cancellations made within 30 days of arrival will be charged in full.

NEW 2020 Payment and Cancellation Policy

As a summer lodge operation, the travel concerns of our guests in the current climate are at the forefront of our minds. We know the excitement that comes with planning a trip to the land of the midnight sun, escaping the crowds, and surrounding yourself with mountains and wildness. We hope that remains an option for you this summer.

Our goal is to alleviate some immediate concerns and allow guests additional time to make decisions in the event that trips need to be postponed or cancelled. Please review this adjusted cancellation policy for 2020:

  • Cancellations more than 30 days prior to arrival: 25% deposit refunded less a $100 service fee. Deposits can also be applied to a rebooking later in the summer or the 2021 season with no fee.
  • Balance of payment due 30 days prior to arrival.
  • Cancellations 30-15 days prior to arrival, 25% deposit non-refundable.
  • Cancellations 14 days or less prior to arrival, stay is non-refundable.

We know that even within two weeks circumstances can change. If you are faced with cancelling your stay once your deposit or balance payment is non-refundable, we will apply the non-refundable portion as a credit on a 2021 stay at Tonglen Lake Lodge.

It is our hope that guests who do need to cancel their trip will plan on rebooking in the future. Refundable payments can be issued in the original form of payment or a gift certificate with no expiration date.

We continue to strongly recommend travel insurance. Tonglen Lake Lodge is a very small operation, and we hope this adjusted policy will benefit our guests. However, there are situations we cannot anticipate, and travel insurance is the best option to help protect you against the unexpected.

Please contact us with any questions or concerns. We will stay in touch with any other updates regarding your stay at Tonglen Lake Lodge.
