A Private Room for Two

Stay in the cozy hutkeeper’s quarters for a comfortable night surrounded by the Alaska wilderness. You stay in a private room for two attached to the main cabin.

Located an hour and a half south of Anchorage, the Manitoba property is a hike-in/ski-in cabin just 3/4 mile off of the Seward Highway. The hutkeeper’s quarters option was added in 2016.

This rental features a private room with one double-sized bed. This private room for two is attached to the main cabin but is set apart by a breezeway/storage area.

The Manitoba property provides guests with access to a cozy wood-fired Finnish sauna for relaxing after a busy day in outdoors. An outhouse is also located on the property for all guests to use.

  • Chevron down Included in Rental
  • The Manitoba property is fully outfitted with mattresses on bunks, dishes and utensils in the kitchen, wood for the wood stoves, and propane for cooking. There is also an outhouse on the property for all guests to use.

  • Chevron down What to Bring
  • All you need to bring is a sleeping bag, food, water, and friends! We have a long tradition of guests who leave Manitoba Cabin and Yurts even better than they found them. Please be sure to collect and pack out all clothing, gear, and food (including spices, condiments, coffee, tea) before you leave. Edibles attract unwanted visitors!

  • Chevron down What We Don't Have
  • There is no running water at the cabin, but Canyon Creek runs right by the back door and is a reliable year-round source of water. It should be treated by boiling, filtering, or chemical means before drinking. We also do not have any electrical outlets available. We encourage you to use this opportunity to unplug and enjoy the outdoors and your fellow visitors.

  • Chevron down What We Ask of You
  • The Manitoba property is an off-grid facility with no staff on site. We do our best to maintain the facility, but being a small non-profit, our resources are limited. We ask that guests pack out all of their trash and leave the cabin cleaner than you found it. It’s a huge help to us and makes the next guest’s stay even better. Thanks!
