Jack Johnson and his family built their homestead in the area
which now encompasses the Tangle River Inn in 1953. He and his father laid most of the
trails in the area, which are now used for hunting, fishing & other recreation. A map
of the extensive trail systems in the area, provided by the Bureau of Land Management, is
available at the Inn.
Jack and his wife Naidine built the Tangle River Inn
45 years ago, and have been constantly improving and expanding it since that time. Jack
handles the mechanical end, and Naidine and her staff keep visitors coming back for more
of their unique brand of Alaskan hospitality.
Bartender, cook & right hand man to the
boss-lady, Violet has been with the Inn since 1993, and Renee has been
making guests feel right at home since 1996.
Hostess - Naidine Johnson
And, of course, you will find your
hostess, Naidine, moving between the cafe, kitchen & bar, ensuring all are welcomed,
served, and entertained.
