Main Lodge - Built out of local logs around 1989, the Main Lodge includes our four deluxe rooms. Each room in the Main Lodge is outfitted with a private bathroom (shower, sink, toilet), self-adjustable heater, comfy bed for two, desk, chair and front porch.
Hunter's Lodge - This log cabin features three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a large social room with luxury leather couches, a wrap around bar with custom seating, and a separate seating area by the wood burning fireplace. Built in 1973, this cabin is decorated in a unique fashion that highlights the Lodge’s history as a world-class hunting lodge. It is a great place to relax in the evening and share stories from the day’s events. It is also used as our official wine tasting venue during the Iditarod.
Honeymoon Cabin - Built in the 1960's this cozy log cabin currently features two bedrooms and a full bathroom. We have plans to remodel the second bedroom in to a living room with wood burning stove to create a more romantic setting.
Rainy Pass Lodge is a cozy, rustic lodge nestled in the heart of the Alaska Range on the shore of Puntilla Lake. The lodge is located on five acres of private land and surrounded by hundreds of miles of un-inhabited state-owned land.
Everywhere you look on the property you have a breath-taking view of Puntilla Mountain, Puntilla Lake and the Alaska Range. Rainy Pass Lodge is right at the edge of the tree line which gives you options for amazing un-obstructed views of the tundra and mountains as well spruce trees for that ideal Alaska look you see in the magazines and on t.v. The views are truly postcard perfect.
The Lodge buildings are mainly log cabins – the oldest of which dates back to 1937. On the property there are about a dozen buildings with a handful of sheds and service buildings. Off-property are 10 Out Camps that we use for overnight guest activities and wilderness safety camps. Don’t let the remote setting fool you, there are plenty of modern amenities to keep you comfortable throughout your stay.

Cook House - Built in 1982, the Cook House is one of the few non-log cabin buildings and is used as our main cooking facility. Its unique dinning room features large wrap around windows and a deck that is practically hanging over the lake. It is an ideal spot for eating meals, after-dinner board games and taking in the view. The Cook House also houses our wine cellar and gift shop. It also serves as the Headquarters for the Iditarod Staff during the famous Iditarod Dog Sled Race.
Puntilla's Cabin - Built in 1937, Puntilla’s Cabin is the oldest building on the property. The structure was built by Wayno Puntilla, who originally settled the area. Although the cabin has been restored and is now a private cabin, guests can arrange to tour this unique log cabin.
Caribou & Moose Cabins - These newer cabins were built in the last few years as private cabins on the hill with a private deck and view of the lake, Puntilla Mountain and the property below.
