I stayed in the bunkhouse since it was just a quick overnight trip on our way to McCarthy. Mike was extremely nice and made us feel at home. The bunkhouse had no running water buy Mike had plenty of containers filled up for us to use. The bunkhouse had a quartz heater that just barely kept it on the chilly side on our cold July night. The outhouse is an experience in this day in time. Watch our for the moose!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We invite you to stay with us and experience the natural beauty of Alaska.....Located in Chitina, at the gateway to Wrangell St. Elias National Park, our "Alaskan First Class Log Cabins" were built by the owners with local spruce logs including the log furniture.To begin your Real Alaskan Adventure in Chitina, our cabins are a beautiful hike from the parking area. During the short walk we may encounter grayling or an otter in our stream, perhaps an eagle soaring overhead and if we are lucky, a sheep peering down from the hillside or mountain above. From our walk to the cabins, the cabins themselves, to the outdoor plumbing, a visit with us is like stepping back into time and history for a true taste of the "Last Frontier". ... more less
