We are located at the edge of Hope, Alaska, 85 miles South of Anchorage. It's an easy hour and a half drive on paved roads with amazing ocean and mountain scenery. Watch for Dall sheep and Beluga whales on the way out. Our small village was founded in the gold rush of 1898 and features many examples of refurbished miners cabins, a historical museum, great ice cream parlor, and live music at a local 100 year old bar. We now boast a population of 125 friendly locals and a couple grumpy ones.

For large parties we have additional log cabins on site, and our dinner house serves a five course dinner at 7:00 PM by reservation every night but Mondays.This dinner is included in your package.

For adventure enthusiasts, try the rafting on Sixmile Creek with one of Hope's local rafting companies. Class four and five rapids with lots of great scenery will get your blood pumping. Amazing hiking opportunities include the Palmer Creek access area, Resurrection Trail, and the Gull Rock Trail, all maintained by the US Forest Service.
