Staff is very friendly, and accommodating. We got to chit chat with a few of them and can tell that the staff felt like family. We really enjoyed dinner and thought the food was excellent. We stayed at the main lodge with shared bathroom and felt that the rooms were spacious enough and didn't really mind the shared bathroom arrangement.... More

The staff was friendly but we were disappointed with the meals and room conditions. When we arrived the outside temperature was 46 degrees so we turned on our heat in the room. We had it set on maximum and it never got over 65 degrees. We froze and were so uncomfortable to even take a shower. The dinner was served... More

After driving 60 miles on a bumpy gravel road, there appears a parking lot for the Kennicott Glacier Lodge. A competent greeter drives us a quarter of a mile to the footbridge where we carry our luggage to the other side of the bridge. We wait a few minutes and the van from the hotel arrives. There, in the distance,... More

I openly admit I went to the Kennicott Glacier Lodge "kicking and screaming" as it was my wife's idea and not mine. She is the Alaskan and I am a city boy who was just along for the ride. What I found and feel in love with is one of the most magical, gorgeous places in the world. The Lodge... More

Maybe I just didn't read the TripAdvisor reviews closely enough; I don't know. But I was expecting a remote wilderness lodge surrounded by mountains and sparkling glaciers, and the Kennicott Glacier Lodge is most certainly not that. If I had been expecting a standard hotel in a standard vacation destination and had paid $200 a night, I probably would have... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip this year. The lodge is beautiful and the food was excellent (we paid for the meal plan, highly recommend). The rooms are clean and comfortable and the surroundings are terrific. The mine is on the property along with tour guide huts. Everything was so easy after the 60 mile drive on... More

Impressive surrounding in the middle of the old copper mine area. Very friendly and caring staff who treat guests in a pleasant manner. The food and ambiance are delicious and the menu offered at lunch time gives you a nice choice, whilst in the evening it's a set dinner. The fact that rooms in the main building have no warm...

We spent three nights at the Kennicotte Glacier Lodge with 10 other family members the first week of August 2015. The Lodge was perfect for us and the staff was outstanding! We stayed in the second lodge rooms which had our own bathrooms, which we really liked. During our 3 night stay we all toured the mine and hiked the... More

The rooms were beautiful with great views. The meals were absolutely delicious, whether it was breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They make their own breads, and you could live on their breads alone. They partner with the Rangers to provide tours after supper. There was no television and no internet if you were not in the second floor of the main... More
