After reading the excellent advice on Denali tours vs. shuttle bus, we plan to reserve the shuttle bus in Denali Park but are having trouble finding lodging. I have been calling around and the hotels are booked. I called tour companies--they have rooms available but we have to purchase the expensive Denali bus tour package which includes lodging. We are renting a car and doing our own thing. I did find 3 small cabins ($125 each) available at the EarthSongLodge 17 miles north of the park entrance. Has anyone stayed at this bed and breakfast ? Is it too far from the park? We plan to stay 2 nights--July 31 and August 1st. Any other suggestions? Thanks so much for your help.
