A short walk from the Alaska-bound Haines Highway you will find ample space around the cabin and endless wilderness right behind it. Forested trails and grassy meadows, not only invite moose, coyotes, bears and other native inhabitants, but will lead you into some amazing, untouched northern back country. Deep blue Kathleen Lake, the high country of St. Elias Mountain Range, and the remote valleys of the Cottonwood Pass are only minutes away.

The cabin comfortably sleeps 4 people, with 2 people on a fold-out futon bed and 2 people each in the 2 bunk beds. The main part of the log house sports one open concept with table and chairs, closet and cabinets to provide lots of space for your gear. Windows along two sides provide for a fantastic view of the back country and “King’s Throne” summit from the kitchen window or front porch. The kitchen area is separated by a counter. It comes with all the kitchen equipment such as pots and pans, cutlery, water containers and dishes as well as a 2 burner propane stove.
