The cabins here were the best I have ever stayed in. I stayed in Cabin 1. It was very well built, clean and comfortable. It was a short walk to the main building where there were shared kitchen facilities. There was a private guide with a large family that was always in there tying up the facility. In the same area was the only inside shower. Behind this area on the outside was two showers/bathrooms but it was not lighted. The upstairs was occupied by summer workers. The view from the front porch of the main building was breaktaking. There was a generator running but it wasn't too noisy. The generator struggled if there were people in the kitchen cooking.
This has nothing to do with the property but wanted to share this experience. If you are flying in on a plane and staying here, there is nothing convenient. We had nothing to drink or eat, no cooler because we couldn't take this on the bush plane. If you walk out onto the road and turn right there is a small grill about a mile down on the left. The other option is to walk to the footbridge and catch the shuttle into McCarthy or Kennicott. If we had driven our stay would have been much more enjoyable. If flying in I recommend staying in McCarthy or at Kennicott Glacier Lodge.
