Deshka Landing Charters & Lodge is a 90 min drive NW of Anchorage. Our Dolly Varden Cabin is perfect for families. The kitchen allows you to easily prepare your own meals and the bathroom has all essentials. Cabin has heat, electricity and internet TV. We are off the beaten path surrounded by the beauty and wildlife of Alaska. A good hub while you explore Central Alaska including: Denali National Park, Matanuska Glacier, Talkeetna and Hatcher Pass. Find out more below.

The space
The Dolly Varden cabin is designed for families. The bathroom is supplied with: towels, washcloths, shampoo, conditioner, q-tips, body wash and a hair dryer. The kitchen allows you to easily prepare your own meals. It is furnished with: a small fridge/freezer, stove/oven, microwave, pots & pans, coffee pot, dishes, serving ware, silverware and basic cooking utensils. We also keep some staples on hand: coffee & filters, salt & pepper, spices, olive oil. There is a convenience store near the lodge turn off from Parks Hwy that offers some basic groceries. There is also a full grocery store in Wasilla. Ask about our additional “for fee” services including continental breakfast, sack lunches and homemade dinners.

Love to adventure? We also own Deshka Landing Charters & Lodge, a river fishing guide service. As our Airbnb guests, we’d like to offer you 10% OFF scenic boat tours and fishing charters with our expert guides. We are readily available to help you have a memorable stay.

Guest access
Guests will have keypad access to their own private cabin. They will also be able to share in the enjoyment all the amenities of the Main Lodge including: Direct TV/fireplace lounge area, WiFi, private bathrooms/showers, puzzles, books, and a sharing library of books. Because most of our guests have come to Alaska to enjoy the out-of-doors, all of our guests are able to share the outdoor amenities of the property including: lawn games, fire pits, grill and picnic areas. We have five separate rental cabins on the property each with different sleeping arrangements ranging from two to eight guests. View our other cabins available for rent here:

Deshka Landing Charters and Lodge is a 90 minute drive northwest of Anchorage. We are seven miles off Parks Hwy on paved roads. Parks Hwy runs from Wasilla north to Fairbanks. We are off the beaten path but our central location makes us a good hub while you explore Central Alaska. Nearby points of interest include Denali National Park, Matanuska Glacier, Hatcher Pass, many scenic lakes and the towns of Palmer, Wasilla and Talkeetna. We are on the Deshka Landing of the Susitna River, an area surrounded by wilderness and wildlife. The river and lake fishing is fantastic! You can walk part of the historic Iditarod trail from our backyard.
