About the Log Cabin Wilderness Lodge
Slip into a bit of our Alaskan Heaven
Located 28 miles south of Tok, 300 miles northeast of Anchorage, 240 miles southwest of Fairbanks, six miles from the nearest neighbors, LCLW’s 11 acres are surrounded by millions of acres of public land. Though off the electrical grid and far from the nearest cell phone tower, free WiFi service is available to visitors of at this intersection of rural and modern living.
Log Cabin Wilderness Lodge is the complete package of amazing scenery and frequent wildlife sightings, comfortable buildings – some historic, some just a few years old – hearty home-cooked breakfasts, and a variety of activities. Moreover, a visit to Log Cabin Wilderness Lodge stands out because it includes the opportunity to experience the lifestyle and daily activities of year-round residents.
Originally called the “Log Cabin Inn,” this property was developed in the 1940s on what was then the main road from Tok to Anchorage. Among the guests who found their way to the Log Cabin Inn during its early years of operation were Hollywood stars John Wayne and Andy Devine.
The Log Cabin Inn closed in 1970 when the road was moved to more stable ground on the western side of the valley and became a private residence. When the property became available in 2004, John and Jill Rusyniak purchased the property and built the Log Cabin Wilderness Lodge, creating a visitor’s paradise. Acquired in 2022 by the Parrows, we aim to provide the same authentic service to our guests the Rusyniak’s provided since 2008.
Former owner John says, “A meandering creek, swooping peaks, wildlife all around us and plenty of history in a place that oozes Alaska. We love it and our guests will, too.” We wholeheartedly agree with John and are blessed to have an opportunity to live here and share it with numerous others.
Your hosts, Shane & Rebecca Parrow
