I would like to thank one of the ladies for going out of her way and sending me postcards that I forgot to get!! I mean amazing... More

We really enjoyed our stay in the lodge. We stayed in the main building with the shared bathroom facilities. As another reviewer mentioned, there are only a few bathrooms on the upper floor and there are 18 rooms. But one evening when I was waiting for the shower a staff person came by and told me that there were more... More

I really liked this place in spite of its drawbacks. First the rooms in the main building have Internet access but shared bathrooms, whereas the rooms in the new building have private bathrooms but no Internet access. Second, it remains fundamentally a fairly standard American lodge. But it has a lot of character and warmth. It is also in a... More

A wonderful, unique hotel that I will never forget. There is a long veranda at the front with chairs to sit and admire the view. The rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Wifi available. The meals are delicious with the evening meal served family style and buffet breakfast. There was so much meat in the packed lunch we had to... More

This lodge is at a remote, beautiful location in the Wrangell St. Elias park. Their shuttle picks you up from your plane or car. The receptionist (Mary) was very friendly and always helpful. The rooms in the south wing are very spacious and have their own bathrooms. Dinner (extra cost) was excellent from start to finish. It was an all... More

We stayed two nights in this uniquely charming, isolated lodge. As other reviewers have observed it is indeed quaint and friendly. However, compared with other (admittedly not quite so) isolated National Park lodges it has a couple of significant flaws. First, there are 18 double rooms on the second floor of the main lodge sharing 2 showers and 3 toilets.... More

This was our third trip to Kennicott Glacier Lodge, our first trip was in 1989 and have brought our teenagers back twice and they love it. It still has the same charm as the first time we visited, very friendly staff and a comfortable lodge with a lot of outdoor activities to keep you busy.

First visit to this remote lodge at the end of a 60 mile, two lane gravel road. Four adults shared one room with 2 queen beds and a private bath. Took advantage of the meals provided by the Lodge. All I can say is every bump along the drive there was well worth it. The stay at Kennicott Lodge enabled... More

We flew in from Chitna, which was great and took 30 minutes. In the main lodge the rooms had shared toilet and washroom facilities, which also doubled as washroom for the restaurant area. But we stayed in the annexe, which has steep steps if you have a problem with mobility. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The food was good... More

If you're visiting Wrangell-St. Elias, you need to make a choice. If you're day hiking and visiting the mine, stay in Kennicott. Perhaps if you're passing through via plane for more back country adventures, McCarthy might be a better fit. Decide which, because the shuttle between the 2 towns is $5 per person each way. Kennicott Glacier Lodge fit our... More
