We are here to share McCarthy during the Guest’s Vacation. We intend on exceeding guest expectations in our approach to hospitality. We embody respect of the area’s history, with a relevant sense of community. We have always used a local approach to architecture & artifacts, ingredients for the restaurants, and local hire preference. Every staff member is trained and empowered to solve any guest concern on the spot.
Our preservation and sustainability programs go beyond building and growth controls to include all aspects of hospitality performed in a world heritage site in remote Alaska. From procurement logistics and recycling, to locally farmed food and low-impact restaurant operations; we take our role seriously because we choose to live as stewards of McCarthy, Alaska.
We support local farming. We recycle and re-evaluate effectiveness every year. We bury glass after crushing. We haul metals and non-burnable solids out of the national park to appropriate waste management facilities. We only burn in our high-temp incinerator during appropriate times of low impact.
