We visit the McCarthy - Kennicott area several times every summer, we have a cabin in the area, so have not stayed at the lodge in many years, but we make a point of coming up to the lodge the last evening of every trip to enjoy some wine on the veranda and overlook the glacier. The atmosphere and staff... More

Whether we were there seeking a wonderful meal/shelter one year during a rainfall, or enjoying a cup of tea and a fabulous pastry while we took in the view on their open air veranda, it was a great experience! Fantastic staff and service!

Stayed at the ever so characteristic Kennicott Glacier Lodge where you can either come by Chesna or by 4x4 over the dirt road. The place breathes the atmospere of the mining age when men were digging for copper and others were diggin them for their money. We had no alternative than to stay for dinner at the same place. It...

We stayed in the south wing. These rooms are larger and have attached bath. Kennicott lodge is literally next to the Kennicott mines. The location is very picturesque. We took the meal package. The meals were phenomenal, well worth the $$. We flew in to the Airport and took the shuttle out. The flight in was beautiful gave us an... More

We visited Kennicott Glacier Lodge for the second time last month. The first trip was five years ago. Staying in Kennicott was a wonderful experience. So much history. I was able to do some late night photography that was a real treat. The staff at the Lodge was very helpful and professional. The food was great. The accommodations were comfortable... More

The Kennicott Glacier lodge is a very special place. The location is great above the glacier. The surroundings are very special. The ancient copper mine and the walking tracks. Dinner is family style but good. It is very nice to meet other people at the table. Our south wing room was very good and spacious. Breakfast and lunch is good... More

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Lodge in late August. Did their Grand Tour Package, flying in from Anchorage to Gulkana and then to McCarthy. The weather wasn't the greatest but we still saw amazing scenery on our ways in and out. The pilots were awesome. Once we got to the Lodge, we went to our room in the... More

This place is the bomb! (That's a good thing). How many places can you go with a glacier out your door? Glacierologysts (is that a word) come here from round' the world to study. Get your butt out there and take advantage of the terrific outdoor guides (outside the lodge door). Yes, they have shared bathrooms but pretend you're a... More

Expensive -- very isolated. At least a seven hour drive east from Anchorage, the last 60 miles of which is on a pretty good (the days we drove it) gravel road, the "McCarthy Road." Very few rental cars are available for this trip, and though we'd "reserved" one from Budget (the only major company that will rent a car for... More
