There are NO discounts for Golden Age and Golden Passports for Alaska cabin rentals. Kook Lake Cabin is set amidst a beautiful stand of spruce and hemlock on the west end of the lake, surrounded by flat terrain with a sandy beach. Mountains rise sharply around the lake, and evidence of past logging is visible from the east end of the lake. This primitive, A-frame cabin is equipped with a sleeping loft, wooden bunks, table, benches, woodstove for heat, and an outhouse. It has no mattresses or cooking utensils. Cabin users should bring sleeping bags, pads, cookstove, cooking gear, and food. A skiff with oars is provided for cabin users only; bring personal flotation devices. A 2-10 HP longshaft outboard motor (not provided) enhances use of the skiff. Brown bear frequent the area, rain gear and boots are a necessity, firewood may be scarce, and the cabin is not maintained in the winter.
