Amazing experience for a close family wedding.
I'm so beyond happy with how our special day turned out. The lodge setting was beautiful and allowed us to have the whole bridal party stay together for the whole weekend. Our family was able to rent the Cusacks cabin next door as well, which worked out perfectly. We set up tents by the river and had own forest fairytale. Jenny made us feel so welcome from day one and helped make everything go smoothly. I highly recommendSent on 04/27/2020
Cusack's On The Kenai's reply:Ah Degen! Thank you for that! It was an honor to have you guys at the lodge for your big day! You guys are such a cool couple! I love your idea of a honeymoon-that was the best! I enjoyed following you on your RV travels throughout all those countries! What an awesome group of Alaskan crazies who came out to your wedding and who definitely knew how to have fun! And I love your wedding photos saying your vows on the river bank with the caribou antlers!

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 picturesSent on 09/21/2020

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!Sent on 03/25/2020
