About Us

The Original Susitna Lodge

The Susitna Lodge was built in the 1950’s and served as a seasonal roadhouse along the Denali Highway which was the only route at the time to access Denali National Park. It also operated as a hunting lodge plane base for remote hunting and fishing trips. The original lodge stopped providing services in the 1980’s and has been mostly abandoned until it was bought in 2019 by Cody Strathe and Paige Drobny. They are working to rehabilitate and rebuild this amazing property! 


Susitna Lodge History

The old lodge once featured a great room with an abundance of large game mounts. The old lodge is currently being used for storage and a shop. We have hopes of rehabilitating the old structure and creating an event venue for weddings, live music and conferences.
