Outstanding hospitality
6 recent guests complimented Donald for outstanding hospitality.
Nicely furnished rustic cabin nestled among large spruce trees. Located near the Gulkana River Bridge (13 miles north of Glennallen). Cabin is also located just 8 miles from the historic Gakona Roadhouse and the Copper River.

The space
Beautiful views of the magnificent Wrangell Mountains abound in the area. The cabin is secluded and has a south facing view. No person on site and check in is either by phone or in Anchorage. The cabin is 1/3 mile from the highway. Road is not plowed in the winter.

This is a remote cabin (vehicle accessible) and directions/check-in are provided by phone unless passing through Anchorage. There is no running water, electricity, or WIFI, and toilet facilities are provided by an outhouse. Guests must bring their own water and sleeping bags unless Anchorage check-in (which can be completed a few days in advance of the stay) . If Anchorage check-in, full water containers and linens will be provided. Cabin does have a propane cooking stove, battery powered lighting, a wood stove/firewood, and kitchen supplies (pots, pans, dishes, silverware). There is excellent cell phone service with AT&T and GCI. The "Award Winning" comfortable upstairs king bed is accessed by a factory made ladder as shown in the photographs. This ladder may be difficult for elderly or handicapped persons to climb. No showers are available at the cabin, but are available 15 minutes away at a RV Park and may possibly be available at the Gakona Lodge. This place is designed for the person who enjoys a rustic, natural, pleasant, peaceful setting, or who just wants a place to crash while on the road. It is available at an economical price for those who are willing to sacrifice a few amenities. Most guests love it. Lots of mosquitoes in the area during the first part of the summer. It is requested that guests leave the cabin in a clean, tidy condition when they depart for the next guests since nobody is available on site. If You Are Looking For A true Alaskan Experience This Is It!! I personally come here occasionally to unwind!

Guest access
Access is available to all areas of the cabin and surroundings.

Other things to note
Guests are required to clean the cabin when they leave and leave it in good condition for the next guests since there is no on-site person. If checking in and out in Anchorage, the date of check in and out does not have to coincide with the dates of your stay if you plan to visit other places on your trip.

I have lived in Alaska since 1975 and moved up here when the Trans Alaska Pipeline was under construction. I enjoy outdoor activities including fishing, hiking, hunting, and along road trips. I also enjoy international travel and have traveled many places throughout the world. I also manage a 9-plex in Anchorage.
