Your next adventure happens here at the Skwentna Roadhouse!
The roadhouse was part of my son's 16th birthday adventure that I promised. Halfway through the Alaskan adventure was the Roadhouse. This place is the next best place to home. Cindi's cooking is fantastic. Mark is a blast to ride and fish with on the rivers. Cookies are always ready and there is no telling who will stop in and share stories.
We struck gold finding the Roadhouse!

Winter Adventures

Come enjoy our Winter Paradise, we have miles and miles of groomed trails for the winter sport enthusiast or for a family get away.  In just about every corner of Alaska there are sno go's, they are used for work and for fun. "Fun" is the key word here! Facts are that most folks believe that Alaska is really "Seward's Icebox" when in fact our region is blessed with a warmer average temperature then a good portion of the lower 48 states (but let's keep that a secret).

Hopping on an Alaska bush plane viewing the sights while being transported will get you excited enough.

But that's just the beginning...

Getting to the Roadhouse going for a guided or unguided sno machine trip on one of our brand new Snogo Rentals – for the day. Imagine playing in our backyard on the historic Iditarod & Irondog Trails - with Mt McKinley (Denali) Looming in the near scenery!


Then at the end of your trail nestling up to a warm wood stove enjoying some hot chocolate or having wine/ hot toddies, while enjoying the camaraderie and delectable cuisine of the Skwentna Roadhouse– a small family owned & operated Alaskan lodge – is well within your grasp.

We provide transportation to and from the State owned and operated airport!

The Skwentna Roadhouse is proud to offer a 50% room rate discount - sponsor for all Iron Dog racers Trail and Pro - self-powered racers ~ Iditasport and Iditarod Invitational Ultra sport athletes & all Dog mushers in training… We enjoy all athletes equally.

We will continue to sponsor all Iron Dog teams equally both Pro & Trail Class with a .50 cents per gallon discount for Unleaded - during your training.
