Best food in our 2 1/2 week trip in Alaska, surprisingly for a remote location such as the Kennecott mine. Very friendly staff + this place is very authentic, which is rare. Reminded me of lodges in the Alps. Highly recommended! (Please mind that we only had lunch there, we did not stay overnight)

I stayed in the new building with private bathrooms (the older building has shared baths). Room is large and clean, with a porch on the front of the building with great views of the glacier and valley. Hotel www prompt about picking you up from the bridge when you arrive. The available meal package is pricey, but the food is... More

What a fantastic drive to Kennicott and to top it off, sleep in the Glacier Lodge! It is fantastically decored, full with character and what a views! Rooms are not very spacious, but every room has it's own theme. We really loved staying here. You should too.

The spacious rooms away from the main lodge offer beautiful views of the Wrangle Mountains. Guided hikes are available to walk on the glacier and enjoy learning about the area. The Restaurant offers wonderful food and very attentive service. The main lodge area may have older rooms, but is very quaint.

We stayed in the newest bit of the annex in a large ensuite room with a porch that had amazing glacier views. This is one of many Alaskan hotels where the bathroom basin is in the bedroom rather than in the bathroom. What's that about? Tasty meals are served family style. You're assigned a table and so get to chat... More

Dear LimehouseTraveller, Thank you for your review of Kennicott Glacier Lodge. It is great to hear that you liked your large room and amazing view. Most of the rooms in the South Wing have a toilet and shower room with a vanity and sink area next to it that is separate from the bedroom. There are two handicap rooms, however,... More

Friendly family run lodge in the remote historic mining 'ghost town' of Kennicott. Service and dining great and fun to sit with other visitors and exchange travel stories. Enjoy a pre- dinner drink on the terrace while gazing over the fascinating 'moonscape' created by the glacier. Lots of activities to do - including a hike up to the Root Glacier... More

Love this place! The road is in much better shape then it was 4 years ago. Once you get there it is like stepping back in time. The park service does a good job of keeping up the old mine. The Lodge is very nice and serves excellent food

Dear Laura M, Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your visit to Kennicott. The State of Alaska has been working hard to improve the gravel road from Chitina to McCarthy and it now takes around 2 hours to drive the 60 mile road.

The privately-owned Kennecott Glacier Lodge is in the middle of a huge and remote National Park. It is an historical one of a kind place to slowly enjoy. Many tours (glacier, mill) start near the lodge. Our room was large with expansive views: of moraine tracks (mud and rock) and white glaciers and mountains. The beds were great. The food... More

This is the place, an old style lodge with a full staff and chefs for the full resort experience in Alaska's (and the country's) largest National Park. The rooms aren't luxurious like the Plaza Hotel in NYC, but this isn't NYC! And go for the meal package, you're spending enough for the rest, it really completes the experience. Your room... More
