We were very impressed by the efficiënt though friendly and welcoming way this hotel was managed. With humor, attention, and foremost together! Staff was really into giving us all a great time. Though diner was served familystyle which was new to us, it gave us the opportunity to meet other guests and we had a great time. Breakfast had a... More

We drove the McCarthy Highway in a friend's borrowed truck, expecting the worst from the infamous road, but were very pleasantly surprised to find the road was in extremely good condition. About a third of it was chip-sealed and the rest was flatly-graded mostly without potholes or washboard. I guess that is not always the case, but this year it... More

We were in the Wrangell-St. Elias area and decided to arrange for the shuttle to drive us to Kennecott just for the day. The area & lodge is beautiful . The view from the lodge porch is worth the many steps you must climb to reach the dining room. . After a quick lunch we headed out to explore the... More

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
