Overview

About the property

Rustic Getaway - Ideal for the Avid Outdoorsman Looking for Cozy Accomodations

The Little Green Cabin a very rustic getaway in the heart of Hope, Alaska. This vintage cabin is an ideal retreat for the savvy camper who wants the comforts of a real bed and wood stove without the grand expense of luxurious living. We describe this cabin as the next step up from tent camping. It is extremely comfortable, cozy, warm and affordable. There aren't many bells and whistles, and the campers who most love this cabin are looking for just that - an isolated retreat that removes you from the every day busy-ness of life. The Little Green Cabin a queen size bed in the loft (all linens provided) and 2 pull-out couches in the living area (if using the pull-out couches, you will want to bring a sleeping bag or other such linens, as only the queen size bed in the loft includes linens). Both pullout couches cannot be fully laid out at the same time very easily, so most guests choose either the single bed or full sized couch bed. But, if you get creative, it can be done.

The wood stove and electric heater will keep you plenty warm in the evenings, and the mini fridge will keep you food plenty cool (be sure to bring firewood if you would like to strike up the stove or fire pit).

The Little Green Cabin is approximately 300 square feet with an additional loft overhead. It is sweetly decorated with country touches, and is an adorable retreat at an extremely affordable price. The cabin has a front porch for relaxing on, and a small portable gas grill to cook up your dinner. The fire pit is shared with the neighboring historic Hirshey Cabin, and it is surrounded by wooden chairs and a picnic table. The Little Green Cabin has a small dinette set for playing cards or enjoying a snack indoors.

The Little Green Cabin is considered a 'dry cabin' in that it does NOT have running water. There is a dedicated outhouse for using the facilities, but there is no sink or shower. We recommend guest bring their own drinking and non-potable water. Coin-op shower facilities and laundry machines are located 2 doors down at the Dacha general store. While the Little Green Cabin doesn't have consistent wifi, a signal from the owner's cabin nearby can frequently be picked up. Ask for the password when you arrive.

Please note that the cabin was recently painted and the furniture has been replaced, so the photos are slightly outdated. New photos are soon to come.

The Little Green Cabin is located at Mile 16.25 on the Hope Highway, just 1/4 mile from downtown historic Hope, Alaska - the perfect walking distance to all of Hope's nearly untouched attractions. Just take a right at the large wooden fish on the side of the road.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I read through all the reviews, and I can see that some people are expecting a posh stay at a "backpacker cabin." We were expecting something super rough, but we were shocked by how clean and cozy the cabin is. It's well-stocked, accurately described, and very warm. I guess it's not for everyone (certainly not someone expecting 5star accommodations) but we loved it and can't wait to come back!

Crap

  • 1 of 5

We did not stay. We got there about 10 pm, after a 8 hr plane flight. it was dark, there were no outside lights, the cabin was hard to find and not a marked clear path to it. The porch was wood and soft and rotting. It was wet and my husband fell and hit his head, and as I say there was no outside lighting. The interior was dirty, and unkept, no window curtains other than the front window and the bedding was nasty. I would have taken pics but my husbands head was hurting so we just got the heck out of there and luckily found another place down the road that was still open.

It was exactly as discribed!

  • 5 of 5

It was comfortable and quiet. It was great in every way. Except one. And it is in no way their fault. In the last year and a half I've had both knees replaced, so climbing the latter to the loft bed was a slight effort.

But that being said...I would book again. Tiny Hope Alaska is such beautiful place!
