The super comfy queen bed in the private bedroom will give you a relaxing sleep for the next day of adventure in our version of paradise. Look no further for your private lodging needs while in McCarthy, Alaska. The Lakina is a lovely, custom Alaskan log house. The house is fully contemporary with power 24/7, hot and cold running water, private bathroom with tub and shower, full kitchen with all the pots and pans and utensils all provided. Additionally, there is a gas grill supplied out on the spacious deck where you'll be able to enjoy the views while grilling. There is also a table and chairs set on the deck for outdoor dining, relaxing or enjoying a beverage while enjoying the views. 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 electric appliances because we are off the grid and provide all of our electricity with solar panels and a battery bank - Hairdryers, irons, tvs, electric coffee makers and microwave ovens. We have a total of 6 guest houses and you'll have to check-in at the office to get the keys for your accommodations. Besides staying in the nicest private guest houses in McCarthy, Alaska, our guests can use our large yard with toys, balls, frisbees, etc. for fun when not out and about in the National Park. We also have lots of firewood and a fire ring for your use. We love to meet everyone and spend some time with as many visitors as possible. We produce all of our electricity with solar panels and store the energy in an industrial battery bank. You should expect unlimited power for charging your devices while visiting us.
