    beautiful cabin and river front access

    Thrilled that we chose this venue for our small intimate wedding. Jenny is amazing and we loved all the amenities they have to offer. Having a river front property was a must and it was serene and made for beautiful pictures

    We couldn’t be happier with Cusack’s as our venue.

    We searched all over the state of Alaska for the perfect venue for our wedding and Cusacks was perfect, it certainly didn’t disappoint. It’s a huge, beautiful lodge right on the Kenai River, with a beautifully landscaped yard that was perfect for the tent we rented. The owner is amazing, she is so accommodating, helpful, and just all around great to be around! We are so happier with this venue, and our out of state guests sure loved it too!
