Mid-way between Willow and Talkeetna, Alaska...20 miles north of Willow and 26 miles south of Talkeetna, this is a great mid-way place to stay between Anchorage and Denali National Park. Three lovely "edge of the wilderness" vacation cabin rentals overlook Upper Caswell Lake, 5 miles from George Parks Highway #1 at Milepost 87.9. Centrally located near many outdoor activities and attractions, cabins are quiet and private...the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the peaceful sights and sounds of nature between your local adventures. All cabins have kitchens/kitchenettes and are fully furnished, just bring food and clothes! Cabin rentals include WiFi, use of paddle boat, mountain bikes, outdoor gazebo, gas grill and fire pit. Freezer space and outdoor fish cleaning station are also complimentary for our angling guests.

Larry and Linda are friendly and gracious hosts. We stayed in the five person cabin which has two bathrooms and is split for privacy into two parts. It was well equipped, although you need to bring a hairdryer if you require one. Our boys fished. This is close to Talkeetna where we did ATV rides and drove to Denali. If you plan to go to Denali, but want to save mo way by staying a little farther away, this is a great choice.

I stayed at Gigglewood for 2 weeks. Linda and Larry Cline are the most genuine, warm people. The accommodations were right on a beautiful lake. Quiet, clean, peaceful. My trip to Alaska would not have been complete without staying at Gigglewood. Thank you Linda and Larry for giving me a wonderful memory.

Ok, so I have never bothered to review a place where we didn't stay. So I don't blame you for moving on from this review, but I did have to stop in here on TA to say a few things about Gigglewood Lakeside Inn. My family was in Alaska for 2 weeks for a huge family vacation. We rented a car and traveled all over the state. We were literally just passing through and saw a sign for Gigglewood. We had time and decided to drive to it and take a cute photo of all of us laughing. Instead, when we pulled in, we were greeted by Linda Cline. She and her husband own this lakeside get-a-way. We told her why we stopped and was SO NICE. She showed us around, explained the history of why they call their place Gigglewood and invited us in for a short visit. My children were shown TRUE hospitality by a stranger who did not stand to gain anything from us. We were just passing through and she had nothing to sell us or gain from us. But she took so much time, show us around, told us about the animals that frequent their lake and we talked about the local passion, dog-mushing. When we go to new places, we try to buy a Christmas tree ornament to remind us of our visit. In AK, that would be a moose, or bear or eagle. However, for us, we came home with an ornament of a loon, one of the birds that Mrs. Cline told us all about. I can't imagine how well they would take care of actual guests!

My friend and I stayed here in the month of July, a very popular month for visiting Alaska. It was so calm and peaceful here, the rooms are beautiful and the lake contributes to the beauty. We particularly liked watching the Arctic Loons diving for fish. Larry and Linda are perfect innkeepers. Linda went above and beyond finding things for us to do, and her recommendations were right-on. Even the prices are quite reasonable, especially considering how expensive Alaska can be in the summer. I highly recommend Gigglewood!

Our family of five arrived at Gigglewood and immediately took a collective breath and totally relaxed. What an amazingly beautiful and peaceful place. Larry and Linda are the best hosts we've ever encountered and every conversation was delightful. They felt like good friends by the time we pulled out of the driveway. The cabins/units are so well thought out - the craftsmanship evident with even the smallest of details. All of us had fun in the paddle boat and our boys had a hoot swimming and playing in the lake. A most wonderful place to get away! We will be back.
