Description

Own a piece of history! Just west of the Parks and Denali Hwys, this lodge sits at the original entrance of Denali Park. A large rustic roadhouse bar w/ stage & dancefloor, dining area, full kitchen, & laundry facility. Now only 6 rooms (room for many more). Outside a large covered stage hosts an annual Bluegrass Festival every July.Owner Financing poss. w/ 25% + down. BTV Comm. Lending optionsOriginally the site of The Carlson Lodge from 1920-1949, this lodge was built in the 1960's, purchased and remodeled by the seller in 1990 and has been family operated for the past 32 years. Just across a small creek are scattered clearings from the original site of the Carlson Lodge and a few dugout foundations from homes of the local indigenous Athabascan Native Americans. Adding a small footbridge across the creek and building some small cabins or yurts in this area might bring the added numbers for the Alaska Railroad to resume their "Flagstop Service". A modern railroad service building right next door is ready for this service to be restored. The original Flagstop here is actually what formed the small town of Cantwell, when the nearby Valdez mine was active in the 1940's. Two heating sources currently service the "Longhorn Saloon and Cafe", two Toyo wall stoves and a drip stove. A very deep basement (the entire sqft. of the main lodge) has a downward sloping ramp accesses a huge door to allow for an enormous amount of storage. Although neither is currently in use, a decorative dripstove (in the bar), and in the basement a 2005 Heatmore coal Stoker-stove allow more options for heating. All of the rooms are heated by Toekick Heaters sourced from a large boiler in the basement. The septic system was replaced 1990 and the leechfield replaced just last year. In 1993-94 the saloon & cafe were added, as well as the metal roof. The right side of lodge houses the six rooms with common men's and womens' separate showers and restrooms. These rent for $160 - $300 (sometimes year round). The left hand side recently had two restrooms added, as well as a small unfinished kitchen and bar. For highest and best use, this area should likely be converted to add more rooms. Northern Lights, which are visible here from August until April. Winter Tourism could flourish here, as Alaskan Tourism companies charter trips from around the world using motorcoaches filled with those seeking to see the Aurora Borealis for their first time. The right buyer for this property should give me a call to combine my thoughts with their own vision of owning an incredible piece of Alaskan history.
