My wife and I visited McKinley View Lodge during our 'Natural Wonders of Alaska' tour with Titan Travel. We stopped here for a comfort break during our journey by motor coach along the George Parks Highway (also identified as Alaska Highway 3) from Denali to Wasilla. It's located about 135 miles north of Anchorage in the Denali State Park and offers spectacular views of the majestic... More

Really cute stop for sweet treats while on the bus ride around Denali. Did not see Denali, but the view was spectacular. Nice gift shop and very friendly staff.

We also stopped here on our way to Denali on a very wet day and had lovely muffins and good hot coffee that wasn't tar.A wide range of gold and other souvenirs that didn't all come from China.

We stopped there on our way from Denali to RCCL in Seward. Our bus operator told us about the history of Mary's. Very interesting and delicious baked goods. Also has a nice gift shop.

Mary's has an excellent restaurant with an incredible view of Denali. You can also spend the night there in a clean room with no frills. We stop there often. We were coming out of Denali Park, having completed our road lottery tour. We were too late to make it for dinner, so we said we'd stop by for breakfast. Breakfast... More

My wife and I had planned and looked forward to staying here en route from Manley Hot Springs to Anchorage Alaska a 520-mile drive. We have stayed here several times in past years and always enjoyed our stay(s). On this trip the Lodge was closed (on September the 6th) and we were very disappointed. The lodge had an illuminated OPEN... More

There are few choices for eating on this road, so this makes a good stop. We left Denali and stopped on the way down to Tern Lake for breakfast here. There is quite a bit of history about this lady and some interesting pictures. Breakfast was fine, basic like everyplace else but there is a nice deck and Denali can... More

A nice place to stop at coming from or going to Denali. Very good deserts and pastries. Lunch is your Norma fare. This is also a lodge.

Our tour bus stopped here for a break and it was a fun place to see. They bake fresh pastries here & they were delicious. There's a little gift shop too - stop in if you are passing by.

Located just North of the McKinley Princess Widerness Lodge, this restaurant and hotel offers as much - and more - as the Princess Lodge. Denali view rooms are $79.00. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the food is fresh, house-made (unlike the Princess Lodge), and delicious. Pictured are the Bacon Cheese Burger (with home made Beef Barley soup), and the Grilled... More
