About

Up to 90 guests

Perched upon the Sugarloaf Mountain, the Grande Denali Lodge is a unique wedding destination in the wilds of Alaska’s Denali National Park. Secluded in nature, the lodge offers a luxurious vantage point from which to gaze upon panoramic views of the surrounding mountain range. Couples can exchange vows in a ceremony like no other, with the limitless bounds of Alaska as their witness.

Facilities and Capacity

The Grande Denali Lodge provides a cozy retreat from the crisp mountain air outside its doors. Its aesthetic is classic and comfy, combining a warm wooden finish with rough stonework and roaring fireplaces throughout. The décor pays homage to the Alaska Native heritage of the lodge’s owners. The venue’s meeting room comprises a setting for an intimate wedding celebration, with views out over the Nenana River canyon. The property’s guest rooms are spacious and modern, featuring climate control and cable television. Cabins, in turn, allow for loved ones to relax in their own private mountain get-away There is parking available on site.

Services Offered

Wedding guests can spend the days surrounding the ceremony by taking part in a number of activities, which the property’s staff is happy to help organize. There are frequent bus tours of the park, ample hiking trails, and even the opportunity to try dog sledding over the nearby peaks. Those who prefer to remain closer to home may be tempted by a round of golf in the Alaskan sun, or a calm bike ride through serene mountain paths.

Cuisine

The Grande Denali Lodge offers couples a true taste of Alaska, with a focus on seasonal produce from the surrounding wilderness. Such epicurean delights are complemented by the property’s extensive bar menu, featuring local microbrews and signature cocktails. The venue’s cafe offers locally roasted coffee and delicious pastries throughout the day.

Location

The true crowning glory of the Grande Denali Lodge is its location, amongst some of the nation’s most pristine and beautiful natural sights. From climbing North America’s highest peak to trekking across vast glaciers, there are ample adventures to be had. Despite its resplendent isolation, the location is accessible from both Anchorage and Fairbanks by train, car, and coach.

    Our Special Day in Denali

    We worked with Shalley and Jennifer at the Grande Denali Lodge for almost 9 months. Our wedding was just what we hoped for. Shalley helped us book all of our guest rooms and the wedding venue. It was simply gorgeous. The hotel itself is very clean and the staff went way above and beyond to make our guests feel welcome. I can't even count on how many people went the extra mile to take care of us. Do you love incredible food? Well, Jennifer provided the most scrumptious meals. I was so proud of her hard work and the outcome was fabulous. Every single dish was beyond our expectations. Even the staff in the restaurant went out of their way to take care of all of our special requests. If you want a beautiful venue to get married at, the Grande Denali Resort is the place to go for beautiful surroundings and top notch service!

    Consumer Traveler getting married.

    It was a perfect place to stay. Very clean and well maintained. I worked with Shalley and she went above and beyond to see that all our needs were met. We had the Elopement package and were more than satisfied with the price and all that came with it. We had our own private cabin with a great view.

    Beautiful and Fun Wedding

    Perfect for a small wedding, the balcony was absolutely gorgeous for the ceremony. Minimal decorations needed because the mountains speak for themselves. The Sugarloaf room was the perfect size for our 38 person wedding, leaving us enough room to dance and do karaoke. Dinner was excellent, two hours of open bar was the exact right amount, and the service was amazing. The only hiccup the entire day was the sound system. The music cut off a couple minutes into the father/daughter dance, which was a bummer, and from then on we struggled on and off for the rest of the night with music and karaoke, even though we had tested the system before. We had a positive attitude about it, and the staff continuously tried to fix the problem. It still ended up being very fun, and they let us stay later than agreed upon because of the technical difficulties. The event planners were very thorough and had many meetings with us before the event to make our dream wedding. All the staff working our wedding were very kind and helpful, and the bartender even joined my mother in karaoke!
