Cabin, Yurts, and More

Rent out the whole shebang, including our main cabin along with our two yurts!

Just an hour and a half south of Anchorage, Manitoba Cabin is a hike-in/ski-in cabin located just 3/4 mile off of the Seward Highway. The main cabin is one floor, originally built in 1936 as a mining cabin, and renovated by the Alaska Huts Association in 2012.

The cabin has a wood stove for heat, a standard four-burner stove for cooking, solar powered lights, and all kitchenware, as well as books and games.

There are two 16-foot yurts for sleeping, each with four single bunks and two double bunks. Toba’s yurt has a wood stove for heat and allows dogs, while the Spirit Walker yurt has a propane heater and is pet free.

We now also rent the hutkeeper’s quarters. A private room with a double bed, it provides a sleeping option that is attached to the main cabin. There is also a wood-fired Finnish sauna.

  • 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 located 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 leaving Manitoba cabin and yurts even better than they found them. Please be sure to collect all your 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. Canyon Creek runs right by the back door and is a reliable year-round source of water. Water from the creek should be treated by boiling, filtering, or chemical means before drinking. We don’t 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 as a small non-profit, our resources are limited. We ask that you pack out all of your 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!
