Send us a message to take advantage of our 20% off Legends Aviation flightseeing discount.

STAMPEDE COTTAGE -- $125 per night. Sleeps 4-6 in beds. 2 night minimum. $15 for each additional person over 4. Ask about large groups.

Stampede Cottage is located on Antares Road (3rd driveway on right) off of Stampede Road in Healy, Alaska- 20 minutes from the entrance to Denali National Park. It is 5 miles from Eight Mile Lake and a view of Mt. McKinley. Stampede Road/Trail is a historic mining trail and the featured location of the book and movie 'Into the Wild.' There is a trail at the end of Antares Road that will take you above treeline and up a ridgeline paralleling Dry Creek and Mt. Healy.

Stampede Cottage was purchased as a one bedroom dry cabin where the owners spent the winter with their four boys. Racing to the outhouse before bedtime became a family sport and the huge closet was transformed to a 'bunk' room. In February came the long awaited arrival of a baby girl and in April the boys watched in amazement as the first trickle of water made its appearance from the kitchen faucet. The bathroom became functional just in time to avoid the summer onslaught of mosquitos at the outhouse. The next major project was to put in a foundation. Using a small tractor, the basement was dug out around the railroad ties holding up the cabin, footers poured, and walls stood before freeze-up. The following summer the basement floor was leveled by hand, radiant tubing laid, and the slab was poured as the first few snowflakes fell. The basement floorplan adds a family room, two bathrooms, and three bedrooms. The anticipated completion date is April 2015. The owners live on property in the Homestead Cabins.

Currently Stampede Cottage is furnished with 2 double beds and a twin bunk bed. The sleeping arrangements are family-style. One double bed is located in the large bedroom closet. The other beds are in the single bedroom. There is a jetted tub in the bathroom and an outhouse outside. Stampede Cottage is by no means glamorous, but it is perfect in every way for the seasoned Alaskan. If you would like to give the simple life a try, Stampede Cottage is the place for you.
