Established by pioneers Pat and Helen Gwin, Gwin's Lodge first opened in January 1952, before Alaska was even a state.
They began harvesting logs from the surrounding Chugach National Forest in 1946. Gwin's Lodge is the oldest surviving roadside lodge on the Kenai Peninsula.
Gwin's Lodge has been an iconic and historic landmark, well-known for delicious home cooking and comfortable lodging.
Gwin's Lodge is under new ownership and management. The entire property has been renovated and remodeled.
