The Aspen Meadows of McCarthy B&B is operated by Rick & Bonnie Kenyon, who also publish the Wrangell St. Elias News. It is located on one of the old original homesteads, about 2 miles from the Kennicott River bridge, just before you get to McCarthy.
The McCarthy B&B is also on the “driving side” of the river, about mile 59 on the McCarthy Road.

The Kennicott River Lodge is just beyond, on the left, at mile 59 1/2. Cross the River into McCarthy, and the McCarthy Lodge provides lodging, food and a gift shop.
