Historic Air Force Lodge

For the most part I’ve been camping out on this trip, but I decided to splurge when I arrived in Watson Lake and rented a room at the Air Force Lodge.

Originally built in 1942 as a barracks for pilots flying during WWII, the building has been refurbished, although many of the barracks-like amenities are still to be found.

The owner is a blast, and we spent quite a bit of time talking Rovers, VW’s and life in the North.

A great place to stay along the Alaska Highway, and actually one of the least expensive.  Highly recommended.air-force-lodge

Just a basic, down to Earth, laid back type of guy here, who loves the outdoors, the indoors, jazz on the turntable, a fire in the woodstove, the northern lights blazing across the sky, and the company of good friends. View all posts by icefogger
