You will notice a beautiful forest behind the cabins, there is a small creek in the forest that also runs behind these cabins, providing a calming and wonderful sound. A sliding glass door leads out back to the porch, which is a great place to relax and enjoy the creek. The private bathroom is located to your left, as you first come inside. The bathroom is stocked with all linens and paper goods you will need during your stay. The bathroom has a sink, toilet and a shower stall.

Each of the cabins at Drifters Lodge offers incredible views of the Kenai River from the upstairs room. We are in the “Land of the Midnight Sun”, and in the summer, it is often difficult to get used to all of the sunlight. We have thick drapes for all of the windows to ensure you are able to get a good night’s sleep before your fishing or rafting excursion the next day.
