This new 18x20 Alaska cabin is near McCarthy airport. Complete kitchen and tiled walk-in shower. Wireless internet, at cabin for Verizon subscribers. The best view by far of Mt. Blackburn, Ice Fall, and the Kennicott Mine right from the deck. You won't want to get off the deck. We offer vehicle transportation during your visit for a small fee (gas). Usually $10 for two days. We offer breakfast and light lunches. Bottled water too.
“Dan’s cabin was perfect for our one-night stay in McCarthy. It was clean and comfortable, with plenty of light breakfast and tea/coffee options. We loved sitting on the deck and taking in the views. Dan kindly picked us up from the McCarthy airport and drove us between McCarthy, Kennicott, and the cabin (for gas money, which was far cheaper than taking the Wrangell shuttle). Highly recommended.”
Welcome to Kennicott River Lodge, McCarthy Alaska where the Wilderness is at our front door! The main lodge building provides a common area for guest to enjoy the comfortable lounge, self-contained big kitchen to cook and dine in, and decks and out side BBQ fire pit to cook and have bon fires around.
“The Kennicott River Lodge and cabins really are in the perfect location. They are super close to the McCarthy footbridge, which makes getting in and out of the town very easy. The cabins and lodge definitely have the most spectacular view of the Glacier in the park, it’s absolutely unobstructed, beautifully peaceful, and a wonderful place to stay. We were in a private cabin, as with most accommodation in the area there was no ensuite facilities, but there was a toilet located nearby, and we could use full facilities in the main lodge such as shower, sink, toilet etc. The lodge itself had a very comfortable living room area, plus a well equipped large kitchen and dining area. So we were able to make some breakfast and coffees each morning, other guests had brought more supplies and were happily cooking their own dinners there. As a host, Brad was absolutely superb. From the booking process, answering questions quickly and helpfully via the app, to greeting us in person when we arrived, to show us the facilities, and give us so much helpful local information. His dog Rio is absolutely adorable too! Brad was always available for any questions, advice, or queries. Having been there many years, he is a wealth of knowledge on the area. He recommended two places to eat, the food truck up at Kennicott ( Meatza wagon), and The Potato in McCarthy itself. Both of which were absolutely superb. The cabins are very well maintained and spotlessly clean. As was the main lodge, for the parts that we saw. I would highly recommend Brad, and the Kennicott River Lodge, for anyone who is looking for a fantastic place to stay in McCarthy.”
A true Alaskan retreat in the heart of Wrangell-St.Elias National Park. Two miles before the McCarthy footbridge, the cabin sits on a hillside above Swift Creek nestled in the birch trees with a breathtaking view of the Chugach Mountains. This family built traditional " trapper style"cabin was built in 2015 and has most all of the modern amenities with solar powered electricity and hot running water in a serene and private drive-to location.
“Stef and Adam's cabin was amazing - very cute and in a private location! It is nestled in the trees on the hill above a gurgling creek and has a very peaceful and relaxing ambiance. There is power, running water, and a refrigerator, which are such a convenience out in the "middle of nowhere"! The bed was comfy and everything was extremely clean. There is an outhouse instead of a bathroom, which worked perfectly for my husband and me. Communication with Steph was smooth and easy and reasonably timely. Will definitely stay here again!”
