“If you want the REAL 411 on Anchorage...”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

... hustle right over to the Log Cabin Visitor's Center. Staffed by dedicated and friendly volunteers (who receive a lot of great training to help them do their job well), it's here that you can find out everything you need to know about everything. From what's going on in Anchorage, to options about where to stay, to options about where to eat, to options about what to do around the rest of the state... it's all here. And the flowers- on the roof, and elsewhere- are awesome! You won't find nicer people to help you, and you won't find better information.

Reviewed March 12, 2014

the workers here were great. they actually asked what I was interested in and selected a few items that "I" would be interested in seeing/doing instead of some generic list.

“Small Cabin on the Main St.”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

The one and only cabin with a sod roof that is still standing in the middle of this great city with a ton of knodledge around town to include a totem outside on the corner with the miles to all sorts of cities/countries from that exact spot so please drop in and see the first home in th Anchorage area so they say.

Thanks for your comments; we are so glad you enjoyed the unique architecture and displays of the cabin. Though it's never been a private home, we are lucky to call it our home. It's certainly a welcoming long-time landmark in Anchorage

“First Stop in Anchorage”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

On our first day in Anchorage, we stopped by the Log Cabin Visitor Information Center. It was a good beginning, and we got some maps and other information, but the woman helping us was not all that informed. Don't stop there, but go to the center next to the log cabin where there is much more information and informed staff.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We're sorry to hear that the Log Cabin didn't live up to your expectations, and we will work to make it a better experience in the future. Glad to hear you did find the answers you needed in the second visitor center behind the cabin; the two work in tandem, and we strive to provide the answers to any and all travel questions about Anchorage and Alaska!

Helpful staff who have limited information - directed us to the larger info center right next door who had more detailed brochures, maps and bus timetables.

Thanks for visiting us and for your feedback! We hope you found all the travel and transit information you needed to make your time in Alaska unforgettable. There's so much to see and do here, the Log Cabin can't quite contain it all. Lucky for us, we have part of the old city hall building to hold everything that doesn't fit in the cabin!
