Stay at the headwaters of the Kenai River

In Alaska Travelgram, Lodging, Parks by scott

I visited Cooper Landing last week,  the headwaters of the Kenai River. where my son is leading wilderness tours on the Kenai River. Looming over the headwaters is the glorious Kenai Princess Lodge.lodgeatkenai_40345c74_g2 I’ve stayed here several times–and I love it. Each of the bungalow-style rooms has vaulted ceilings made of naturally finished wood, cozy sitting areas with wood-burning stoves and private porches that look out on the river valley. You can see Kenai Lake from some of them. I remember watching the moon rise one evening. NO–I did not howl at the moon–but I thought about it.

The Kenai Princess is a great stopover point if you’re traveling on the Kenai Peninsula. Time your travel to include a Wednesday evening–and the cost is just $99 per night. Great deal!

Other dates throughout the summer are available for as little as $149 each night.

On the Upper Kenai River, take a wilderness float and watch for wildlife. Arrange for a fishing charter and catch some salmon and rainbow trout. There’s lots to see and do. Heck–you’re just 40 miles from Seward, where you can sail to Kenai Fjords National Park! Plan now and save some money with Princess Lodges!

Oh, there also are great deals at Princess’s other lodges throughout the state, including the Denali Princess at Denali National Park, Copper River Princess near Glennallen and the McKinley Princess near Talkeetna.

Plus, take advantage of great 2-for-1 deals on Princess Lodges’ special rail/stay packages from Anchorage and Fairbanks.
