The hexagoda. That stovepipe has twice come disconnected over winter due to storms. If you are the first guest of the year, you might have to put it back. We do our best to have someone check in periodically on the cabin but there are no guarantees as its very remote and only for the hardiest of folks.View from the hexagoda of Fireweed Mountain.

House Rules

Standard Alaska cabin rules. Leave everything in the same or better condition than you found it and don't be an asshole. If you run out of something or note that something is out or broken, please tell me so I can fix it up. If you eat a lot of the house food, please make a corresponding contribution; it's not easy to get it out there. If something breaks while you are there, please fix it if you can.

As you have been told, because this is a remote rental, you simply must must must return the cabin to as good or better condition as when you arrived. While I can occasionally get neighbors to check on it, this is not a normal vacation rental, so you have to clean up after yourself in every way and dispose of your own rubbish (pack it out or burn it responsibly). If you can’t handle making everything very tidy before you go, please book one of the rooms in town that offers cleaning services.
In Alaska, many people leave their cabins unlocked in the winter just in case someone needs to use them. It’s all trust-based, as is this rental. We are trusting you will leave the cabin in fantastic condition, ready for the next person who needs it, whether it’s us or an AirBNB guest or a weary traveler who gets stuck outside in winter.

Do not stay here. This cabin is not well built. I would not be surprised if it collapsed any day. You're better off just camping near town

"A quiet quaint place in remote area but nothing to do. After hiking every trail in the vicinity we decided to cut our losses and left with another full week remaining in our reservation. Don't be fooled by the hike into town. While downhill from The Shanty it is all uphill from …

Kimberly had great, quick communication. We ended up not staying in the shanty due to a family emergency, so I can't speak on the property, but Kimberly is great.

If you are up for rugged and privacy this is your place. Kimberly was very upfront about the amenities (and lack thereof). The area has amazing hiking, glacier climbing/hiking and wilderness opportunities. McCarthy is a fun frontier town. Kimberly was very responsive to our inqui…

Kimberly was absolutely right about the shanty. Out in the middle of no where, no hot water or electricity, and in the middle of a funky town. The shanty was perfect for my lady and I. Offered cozy space to call home for 12 nights. We had a blast at the summer festivities and ma…
