    We are super convenient to get to and located right on the main road to McCarthy, Alaska. No need to schlep your luggage and groceries by walking or waiting for a pick up at the Kennicott River. You can drive right to your guesthouse door. Located only 2.5 miles from the end of the road you will enjoy our peace and quiet after a long day of adventuring in Kennecott, on the Root Glacier or rafting down the Kennicott River. We built our guest houses from scratch starting in 2003 and opened everything by the summer of 2006.

    All of the guest houses are made of locally sourced spruce logs and rough-cut lumber where we could use it. Nice touches that remind you of the railroad days are the rail spike coat hooks located in the house and the towel hooks in the bathrooms. We don't provide the following because we are off the grid and provide all of our electricity with solar panels and a battery bank - Hairdryers, irons, tvs, and electric coffee makers and microwave ovens.

    Besides staying in the nicest private guest houses in McCarthy, Alaska, our guests can use our large yard and toys for fun when not out and about in the National Park. We also have lots of firewood and a fire ring for your use.

    Occasionally there are large animals that wander through our yard and by our guest houses. If you encounter a bear or moose please give them the room they need to not feel cornered or threatened. If possible get to your guesthouse or into your vehicle. Never feed or harass the wildlife, please.
