Description of Glamping Units

These romantic and tranquil lakeside cabins hidden in the Alaskan wilderness have nine custom designed Yukon-style cabin tents in wooded settings, connected by gravel pathways and boardwalks to protect the fragile ground below. These comfortable accommodations combine cabin comfort with canvas tent charm. With small front porches that have chairs, guests will be able to sit outside to relax and take in the scenic Alaskan wilderness.

Two of the cabins reflect the historic property's charm and are lakeside log cabins. One of them has a loft that kids love, and two newer log cabins have attached private baths/showers. All cabins offer charming indoor amenities, including lodge-style furnishings, linens, comforters, propane heaters, and lights. Modern “his and hers” bathhouses with flush toilets and hot showers are located a short distance from the cabins. Read More
