Exit Glacier Lodge is a simple, authentically Alaskan lodge with a clapboard façade and decking, and is located near the harbour town of Seward. It’s ideally situated for exploring both the town and the nearby Kenai Fjords National Park. Set in the Resurrection River Valley below Exit Glacier, the lodge enjoys a peaceful woodland setting and is the starting point for many good hiking trails. It’s also located opposite a characterful pub which offers hearty food, including (as you might expect) plenty of seafood options, as well as good microbrews and wines. Some rooms have balconies and all are furnished in an honest, homespun style.
The lodge has just 15 rooms in total, the majority of which are standard or deluxe rooms, with the latter offering two double beds. A suite with a private balcony is also available. Just a short walk from the main lodge there’s a studio apartment with kitchen facilities as well as a loft apartment. The loft includes a kitchen and living area, a double bedroom on the first floor, and three single beds, making it ideal for families.
Located 3.2 km (2 miles) north of the town of Seward on Exit Glacier Road, the hotel offers easy access to the town, which is a starting point for many day trips. It’s also just a short drive away from the Exit Glacier trailhead.
Food and Drink
A light breakfast is available to purchase and takeaway lunches can be requested if you’re heading out for the day. In the evening, you can dine at the Salmon Bake Restaurant and Pub which is located just across the road from the main lodge and serves Alaskan seafood, steaks and burgers. The pub is open from 5pm to 10pm. Alternatively, you’re not far from the town of Seward, which has a number of excellent restaurants to choose from.
A simple character lodge, ideally located for those wanting to walk and explore the Exit Glacier area.
