Kennicott River Lodge lies within the boundaries of the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve and near the entrance to the Kennecott Mine National Historic Landmark and the historic town of McCarthy, AK. Site construction began in 1996 and consists of the Main Lodge Building, Owner's 2 bedroom cabin, 5 individual rental cabins, 1 Office/Manager's cabin and a combination sauna, well-house & generator Bldg with supporting infrastructure all on approximately 19 acres of land. The Kennicott River Lodge can accommodate 23 people in comfort. The entire complex is "off the grid" with electricity supplied by solar panels, batteries & 5-kw diesel "back-up" generator. A 60ft. deep freshwater well supplies the drinking water. Septic is provided by a 2000 gallon tank & leach field which is pumped & serviced annually. The property has easy access to McCarthy Road which terminates a short distance away at a pedestrian bridge over the the Kennicott River. The lodge and cabins have magnificent views of the Kennicott Glacier & glacial lake, the Stairway Ice Fall, (the tallest of it's kind in the entire Northern Hemisphere) and the Wrangell-Saint Elias Mountain Range. The site location, it's world class view and easy access to the park lends itself naturally to hotel or resort development and/or the construction of single-family "get away" cabins for residents of Anchorage who can be found there on weekends. As the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park continues to be discovered the growth potential for this area is enormous. More information is available upon request.
