    For the privacy of our visitors, our gate remains locked at all times. You have been provided with an access code in your booking confirmation. Please call us if you have any issues.

  • Where can I eat during my stay?

    Our in-house chefs can cater to all your private event dining needs. From crowd-pleasing barbeque to tablecloth worthy fine dining, we’ll work with you to create a custom menu. For other meals, choose from one of the many great establishments in Kenai. Additionally, a number of our queen rooms and the Apartment are equipped with a kitchen so you can prepare your own food as well.

  • Is The Cannery Lodge child friendly?

    While we do our best to accommodate every visitor, our property is not especially suited for children. There are gas fireplaces in some rooms, and an outdoor fire pit that could be dangerous for young children. Additionally, The Cannery sits on the edge of the Kenai River, which can present certain dangers for unsupervised little ones.

    You may check in after 3 p.m. If you need to set up an early or late check-in, please contact us at least 24 hours before your planned arrival time so we can arrange it. Check in at the front desk in The Cannery Lodge building on the grounds. Checkout is at 11 a.m. Please drop your room key off at the front desk before you leave.
