We have been making this trip to Kennicott every summer for many years. It is one of our favorite places in Alaska. Whether for a stay of 2 days or longer, the view is incredible, opportunities for adventure are many from exploring the village and the glacier to hiking up the mountain to the mines with a lunch and delicious cookies in hand. It's always wonderful to then come back to the cozy rooms in the lodge and have a drink on the deck or lawn while waiting for another fabulous dinner. The meals never fail to be top notch and the service friendly and prompt. Very professional all around! I am already dreaming of this summer!
I sometimes send the manager of a lodge a note to call out an employee that was particularly outstanding. The only problem with trying to do that for the Kennicott Glacier Lodge is finding someone even more outstanding than anyone else. These are five star people here. They’re attentive without being overbearing. They all know and love the area. They’re more than happy to suggest places to see or experiences they’ve had here. The food at the lodge is easily the best we’ve had in Alaska. This is a worthwhile stop for any visit to Alaska.
What a trip--literally at the end of the road in Alaska! The staff at the Kennicott Glacier Lodge could not have been nicer. From the van driver to the front desk staff to the waiters & waitresses delivering delicious meals, we were impressed from start to finish. This unique and historic property provides everything you need in rustic Alaska.There are adventures such as ice climbing, copper mine tour & strolling the village right out the front door. And--in nearby McCarthy you can visit the town or take an amazing flight-seeing trip. I cannot wait to go back!
This lodge has SERIOUS issues and for that reason I am filing a complaint with the ADA for non-compliance with the Disabilities Act and other issues. Our stay here was concerning, appalling, and the most unprofessional place that I have ever traveled to. This is my first time with this experience and would not advise it to anyone who may be considering it. You can read my full review of my complaints on my blog Caravan Sonnet.
What an awesome place to visit!!! Make your reservations in advance because this place fills up fast!!! The rooms were basic. Clean and they have some interesting memorabilia on the walls for decoration. Common bath and restroom facilities . Every thing was clean and well taken care of. Wander the halls and common areas for some interesting material hanging on the walls pertaining to the mining company. They have a great dinner at night, also the breakfast in the morning was good. Take the walking tour of the old mining facilities, well worth the walk!
