This restored log cabin is a unique, comfortable accommodation in the middle of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Up to 3 people can enjoy the cozy cabin that's close to downtown McCarthy and the wilds of the park. Come visit--we welcome you!
tinycabin is a lovingly-restored 30-year old Alaskan trapper's cabin, full of rustic charm and comfort. It's a small (11'x16') one-room log cabin, so come with someone you love! You'll be rewarded with an authentic "AK bush-town" experience in the middle of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. tinycabin is perfect for couples, but a third person can be easily accommodated also. There is a double bed, plus a futon mattress that can be set up on the floor. A lovely covered porch looks out on a private grassy area (additional guests could camp), wildflowers and berry bushes, and mountain scenery. The cabin has both a woodstove and propane heater, propane and electric lights, and electrical outlets where guests can charge electronics. Wifi can be purchased by the day from the local hotspot. The kitchenette is stocked with supplies for guests to cook simply, plus "semi-running water" which is a cold water cistern and basin. Towels and linens are provided, as well as filtered drinking water.
Zugang für Gäste
Guests have a private, clean, new outhouse for their use and are welcome to use our hot water, outdoor shower (it's rustic, but refreshing!) under the deck of our next-door home. The town of McCarthy is 2 blocks away--a quick walk to the local general store, restaurants/bar, shuttle-to-Kennecott bus stop, flightseeing operators, guide services and historical museum. The end of the Kennicott Glacier is a 20 minute walk away and the Kennecott Mines National Historic Landmark is 4 miles away; you can walk, bike or take a shuttle. Guests can only drive to the Kennicott River, then need to walk across a footbridge and either walk or shuttle-bus the 1/2 mile into McCarthy town. If you fly into McCarthy from Chitina or Anchorage with Wrangell Mountain Air, they will shuttle you to downtown McCarthy, then it's a 2-block walk to tinycabin. I may be available to pick some guests up at the footbridge, depending on my work schedule; this may be arranged on a case-by-case basis.
Interaktion mit Gästen
We live right next door to tinycabin, so are available to answer questions and help guests, but we respect our guests' privacy and space. I spend a lot of time in the yard and garden during the summer, so I am often working near tinycabin. Our friends visit and we work on various projects, so it's not a place of complete solitude. For those that want an entire property to themselves, this may not be the place. We live in an Alaskan bush community, with all its daily activities, and we welcome anyone who wants to experience a bit of that routine. We love to answer questions about the area if guests want information. We provide a binder of information about the area in the cabin.

I love being outside, gardening, birdwatching, cooking, berry picking, skiing, dancing, sewing, snorkeling, hiking and wildflowers. My husband and I travel, budget-style, each winter, to escape the dark and cold of December and January. But the rest of the year, we live in the funky little town of McCarthy, in bush Alaska. We have restored a 30-year-old trapper cabin that guests can now enjoy, and we're eager to share our little piece of Alaska, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, and McCarthy with visitors.
