Kantishna Roadhouse Awarded Gold LEED Certification

Denali, AK – Doyon, Limited is proud to announce that Kantishna Roadhouse, a wholly owned Doyon subsidiary, has officially been awarded the prestigious Gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification.

The LEED rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, is an internationally recognized green building certification system aimed at improving the metrics that matter most to building owners and the community: energy savings, water efficiency, carbon dioxide emissions reduction and improved environmental effects.

Purchased by Doyon in 1995, Kantishna Roadhouse has undergone numerous improvements and building additions. As part of the recent certification process, the Roadhouse implemented a recycling program and installed new windows, LED lighting and low flow appliances. These improvements and many others, provided ways to maximize efficiency and environmental sustainability of the building to help achieve Gold certification.

“Our goal for operations at the Kantishna Roadhouse has always been to uphold Doyon’s mission of protecting and enhancing our land and resources and to practice the Doyon value of being socially and culturally responsible in how we do business,” said Kantishna Roadhouse general manager, Marie Monroe. “The Gold LEED certification validates our hard work and acknowledges that we are on track with our efforts to be good stewards of the land. We are proud of this accomplishment, and we will continue to strive to do more and do better.”

Doyon, Limited offers visitors the opportunity to experience the splendor of the Denali National Park through the Kantishna Roadhouse and Kantishna Wilderness Trails.

August 24, 2021 National Park Service Announcement
Denali Park Road Closed To All Traffic beyond Mile 42

Due to the unsafe conditions posed by landslide activity the Denali Park Road is closed. The Kantishna Roadhouse is closed for the season. The Kantishna Wilderness Tours bus tour is operating on very limited capacity for tours to Mile 42 through Sept 12.

The Kantishna Roadhouse is an “inholder” business and we must comply with the National Park Service. We are dismayed and saddened that we cannot keep our business open for the remainder of the 2021 season. And, as you can see, we have no choice but to cancel all overnight reservations beginning August 24th and through the end of the season. We will be sending you a cancellation notice and crediting you with a full refund.

Thank you for your understanding. I fully understand that you wanted to be at the Kantishna Roadhouse, rather than reading this and making other plans.

Best Regards,
Marie Monroe, General Manager
