Cabin Rentals

Cabin faces southeast overlooking a peaceful cove and is located in a natural clearing surrounded by a dense spruce and hemlock forest. To the southeast are vistas of snow-capped peaks overlooking Redoubt Bay. Main level has one single-wide bunk over a double-wide bunk. Open sleeping loft has no bunks and looks down on main level. A small deck is located in front of the cabin with a gently sloping sand pebble beach to the water. Occasional strong winds from the southeast or from Redoubt Lake area; otherwise a peaceful cove. Popular Goddard Hot Springs is about 8 miles (13 km) or a 20 minute boat ride south; public hot tubs first-come/first-serve. Suggested USGS topo map: Port Alexander D-5, D-4 What to bring: Fire starter, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, cooking stove, lantern, pots, pans, plates, utensils, food, toilet paper, garbage bags. Rubber boots and raingear are recommended. Water available from nearby stream, 100 feet (30 m) away from cabin. Treat all water before using. Better idea is to bring your own water.

Firewood for the cabin stove may be in short supply or temporarily out at any time of year. Firewood not provided for outdoor campfires, gather only dead and down wood. Accessible year round, weather permitting. Occasionally poor weather can result in extended stays, and cabin users should be prepared for this.
