About the property

Blackburn Cabins: McCarthy, Alaska

Nestled in the forest near the toe of the Kennicott Glacier, our 5 eco friendly, private log cabins offer a comfortable place to rest after a day of exploring the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. The cabins, completed in 2015, were modeled after nearby original trapper cabins. Each cabin has two full size beds, a small kitchen set up with running water, and a drinking water filtration system. The cabins share a shower house with hot water (also considered a luxury in this neck of the woods!), along with an outhouse. Linens, dishware, and towels are all provided. Two bicycles per cabin are available for our guests.

We are located in the center of the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, along the five mile wagon road connecting McCarthy and Kennicott (3/4 mile from the footbridge and 3/4 mile from McCarthy).

Comfortable, stylish and rustic cabins - We loved it! McCarthy is a special place

Mark and Levvi are awesome! The cabins are perfect for a couple or a family. The grill outside with a whole set up of pots and pans is an excellent addition. The location is perfect and the bikes helped a lot! They picked us up at the foot bridge so we were able to bring all of our stuff in such as our cooler. If you are looking for an awesome McCarthy experience but still sleeping well, I highly recommend Blackburn Cabins. McCarthy is a very neat place, Kennecot and the glaciers are amazing, but the Blackburn cabins really made the whole experience perfect!! Thank you Mark and Levvi!

Outstanding! I'm almost afraid to give too good a review knowing that it will probably be fully booked the next time I try to rent a cabin... But Blackburn cabins deserves it.

Everything was thought of, right down to the coffee and the rental bikes. Saved us the trouble of dragging camping gear onto the airplane and sleeping out in the rain. Terrific service! I'd recommend to anyone.

We were greeted at the bridge to McCarthy with a friendly smile and kind offer to have our gear loaded and delivered into the cabin. It was an offer we could not refuse as we came prepared to have some good meals, drinks, and adventures in the backcountry. We were given great ideas on some of the area attractions to go sightsee, or just listen to the Glacier cracking through the silent night and day. We went on a cross country ski trek up to Kennecott and we loved the trails and views. The cabin was a great place to come and relax after a day of trekking. The beds were so comfortable and the propane furnace keeps the cabin very comfortable. After some relaxing, we walked 3/4 mile to McCarthy for some great food, drink, and laughs with the locals. We can't wait to come back in the summer to see McCarthy in its hustle and bustle surrounded by green trees and huge Mountains. We will be back to Blackburn Cabins! Thank you!
