About

On WeddingWire since 2020

Cusack's On The Kenai is a scenic venue located in the wilds of Soldotna, Alaska. A Luxurious Lodge made available at an affordable price for Alaskans. The property welcomes nature-loving couples to experience the majesty of Alaska’s great outdoors from the base of a comfortable, modern mountain lodge. Those celebrating their weddings will appreciate the warm welcome and commitment to service provided by staff in planning, but then give you your privacy during your wedding days!

Facilities and Capacity

Cusack's On The Kenai is a venue with family and community at its heart. The lodge was started by the 5 Cusack sisters, who work together running the business. They have made it their mission to share their love of Alaska and its stunning wilds with the world. The property sits overlooking the aqua blue Kenai river, home to all manner of fish including the giant Chinook Salmon. Couples can exchange vows on the riverfront in a picturesque ceremony under an artistic floral arch. The party can continue outdoors with space for a tented reception on the front lawn of the lodge. As night falls, guests can converge on the firepit for intimate chats in its warm glow. During the days surrounding the event, the deck provides an ideal vantage point from which to enjoy the view while relaxing in a jacuzzi. Guests can avail of luxurious accommodation during their stay. The property’s main lodge is constructed from hand-carved spruce logs with an interior that is warm, welcoming, and luxurious. There are 7 bedrooms available, as well as several communal areas with comfortable furnishings. The complimentary amenities offered by the venue includes high quality chairs and 8' tables for events as well as the arbor, log cut plate chargers, a palette bar, and a range of wedding decor. A lot is included when you choose to celebrate your day here, preventing you from needing to source items from elsewhere at an additional cost.

Services Offered

The owners of Cusack's On The Kenai welcome wedding parties with open arms and strive to make their experience idyllic from start to finish. They can help couples by providing a range of complimentary items including a sound system, lawn games, and rustic decor items such as 25 whiskey barrels. They also have a wedding decor room filled with great stuff including the owner’s own wedding decor collection, as well as repurposing wedding decorations from previous weddings. They also ask all couples to leave something behind for the next wedding couple! They can also provide information about the surrounding area and its best trails and sights. Many lodgers travel to the property every year to fish, and the staff is happy to help guests with advise on local excursions.

Magical venue

I truly can’t say enough good things about Cusack’s on the Kenai, I feel so lucky to have gotten married at this magical place! What we loved most is that you get the entire lodge for three days (as opposed to a few hours for other venues). That means that ~20-30 friends and family have an incredible place to stay for 3 nights, with an industrial kitchen, huge river-front lawn, and lots of extras. Cusack’s gives you full privacy and freedom, so the place is completely yours for 3 days with very minimal rules. However, if you do need them for questions or help, they will show up with just a phone call. Jenny helped us find vendors and answered all of our questions as we were planning for the wedding. She and others at Cusack’s are so sweet and truly want your wedding to be amazing! They also provide chairs, tables, alters, and tons of other little things that make the process so much easier! We also felt like this was a great value for how much you get.

Amazing wedding venue!

I was so fortunate to get married at Cusacks on the Kenai on 6/12/21 and it couldn't have gone more perfect. The venue is absolutely amazing and it is right on the Kenai River. There is so many rooms and beds for friends and family to sleep in. All the amenities are there as well, besides food.. you really dont have to bring anything else. Jenny has a "pay it forward" system with brides, and provides a whole room of wedding decor that you can use free of charge (its ALOT of stuff, like ALOT) and all they ask is to leave a couple things behind for future brides. You get tables, chairs, a bar already set up with lights, kitchen ware, bikes, and more. Its amazing how much comes with the venue for the price. Staff is incredibly helpful and attentive. I must have had multiple people come up to me leaving their name and number saying if I needed anything, even at 2 am to let them know, it was very reassuring. 100% would recommend getting married at Cusacks on the Kenai. I couldn't say enough good things about the venue. Thank you for making my wedding weekend so amazing and to have memories that last a lifetime!

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 recommend
