The Golden Spruce is great, we were heading to the St. Elias National Park so we stayed in one of their cabins for one night. These are dry cabins but they have electricity and were very cozy. John and Patty have a beautiful log cabin store that he built himself...Incredible! The store is great, they have lots of movies to... More

Everything about this place is great. Patty is the nicest person ever and a darn good cook! The milkshakes are amazing and so are the burgers. My friend and I were on our way to Wrangell St. Elias National Park and it was a longer drive than we thought so we decided to eat and spend the night there. We... More

My parents swear by this place and took us there while we were on our visit heading to Valdez. Patty makes the BEST food! My fiancé tends to be very picky about his burgers, and when asked what his favorite part of the entire trip was, he said, "Patty's Burgers". They have the cutest little store and set up. I... More

My girlfriend and I stayed there on our way to and from Wrangell St Elias National Park. The owner Patty was really really friendly, accommodating, and kind. She tipped us off to the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights one night and that night we got to see an amazing display, one of the high points of the trip.

These must be about the cheapest cabins in this area I suspect coming in at about US$75 for a double and they are pretty good. The cabins themselves are clean and comfortable and have tea and coffee making facilities in them but no bathrooms or toilets. There are a couple of long drop toilets outside near the cabins but up... More

We stayed at Golden Spruce Cabins for two nights with a group of 7 sharing one cabin. The host was very friendly and accomodating. She allowed us to put up a tent next to the cabin for no extra charge. The cabins are in good condition and clean. The little store/restraunt is nice and prices are reasonable. I thought that...

I often drive between the middle of Wrangell Mountains and Anchorage. When I first discovered the Golden Spruce restaurant I was very pleased at the quality of lunches they served. So for the next couple of years I tried to time my departures to from/Anchorage so I could have lunch there. The meals were delicious. However, I guess all good... More

I started my search the year before on the internet. So I emailed Patty and got a feel for her place and her opinion. We arrived and found a very nice cabin on the edge of the National Park. Way cheaper than anything in Chitina, Kennicott, McCarthy. But within a reasonable driving distance to Kennicott. Yes, we drove out rental... More

I looked at a lot of options on the internet, seeking a place within range for pickup by the shuttle to Kennecott Mines, before choosing Golden Spruce Cabins. I almost traded the convenience of a private bath/shower at more expensive options for the charm of Golden Spruce. Our cabin was very clean and comfy, with bunk beds and a log-frame... More
