Originally built as housing for the managers of Kennicott Copper in 1918, this cottage was renovated in 1996.

The cottage consists of a living room, kitchen, and three guest rooms, as well as a shower and sink in an out-building. There is no flush toilet; there is a very nice outhouse in the side yard of the cottage.

Though the cottage was originally provided with electricity from the Kennicott Copper generator plant, the house no longer has electricity. It is smart to fully charge your phone(s) and computer(s) before you come. Kennicott Glacier Lodge (less than a 10 minute walk) offers a wireless connection (and limited outlets) for a fee.

Heat is provided by outside venting propane heaters while propane lights illuminate the house. (However, the long days of an Alaska summer make lights unnecessary for most of the evening.)

With three guest rooms, there is plenty of space to relax and unwind. The downstairs room has a double bed, and the two upstairs rooms have two twin beds in each.

The living room has a queen-size futon to accommodate extra family members or friends.

All rooms are supplied with fresh linen and extra blankets and pillows.

With quiet neighbors, and miles from the nearest paved road, you’ll find it easy to get that well-deserved, good night’s sleep you’ve been wanting.

Make yourself at home in the light and cheery kitchen, which has running hot and cold water, a propane stove, propane lights, a propane refrigerator, and plenty of cupboard space for storage.

If you bring your own food, you can use the kitchen to prepare meals; all cooking utensils (pots, pans, silverware, etc.) are provided. Groceries should be purchased prior to driving to Kennicott. You may also purchase meals at the Kennicott Glacier Lodge or McCarthy Lodge.

Now it’s your turn to relax and enjoy your stay at beautiful Seventeen Silk Stocking Row.

So come on! Be our guests, and take home memories that will last a lifetime.
