manitoba Cabin

Located an hour and a half south of Anchorage, Manitoba Cabin is a hike-in/ski-in cabin 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, all kitchenware, as well as books and games. There are two 16' yurts for sleeping, each with 4 single bunks and 2 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. New in 2016 we will also be renting 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 an outhouse, as well as a wood-fired Finnish sauna.

reservations

Make reservations online here or email amy@alaskahuts.org with any questions. We take reservations up to six months in advance, but will make exceptions for educational groups or special gatherings (i.e. weddings). Our cancellation policy can be found at the bottom of the Rates & Bookings page. 

what to bring

Manitoba is fully outfitted with mattresses on bunks, dishes and utensils in the kitchen, wood for the wood stoves and propane for cooking. All you need to bring is a sleeping bag, food and friends! 

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.

 What we ask of you

Manitoba Cabin 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 will make the next guest's stay even better. Thanks!
