Peace of Selby Wilderness operates the Lodge at Selby Lake and 4 remote Alaska cabins at 4 locations.
Constructed in the early 80's of white spruce logs harvested from the surrounding forest, The Lodge is a lovely example of superb log building art. Peace of Selby is the only facility on the lake, making it your private peaceful haven.
On the main floor are the lounge, bathroom, dining and kitchen areas. Relax in the lounge which is highlighted by a collection of historic and Eskimo artifacts. Browse through our Alaska reference books.
Visit with Be and Damaris as they prepare meals in the clean kitchen, adjacent to the dining area. Blueberry sourdough hotcakes with wild berry syrup, fresh caught trout and grayling, oven fresh breads and desserts are special features of our kitchen. Art is the outdoor cook, a master at beach barbecues. Fresh meats and produce flown in from Fairbanks allow us to offer exceptional dining. We are happy to accommodate special dietary needs if requested in advance.
Linger over bountiful family-style meals with your hosts, at the dining table which affords a spectacular view through picture windows to mountain peaks that rise majestically by the lake.
Climb the stairs to the sleeping loft. Skylights flood the cozy loft with light. A large window offers a scenic view of the lake and mountains, extending down the valley and into the Lockwood Hills beyond the Kobuk River. The large carpeted loft features a cluster of lounge chairs, a desk for your personal writing and an interesting collection of local memorabilia. Rest in comfort in a queen size bed or two twin beds which include clean linen, comforters, and handmade quilts. You and your party will have exclusive use of the loft during your stay.
Gas lights and appliances and a woodstove provide comfortable frontier-style living.
