    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

    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 pictures
