OverviewGreentop Cabin is located on the southwest tip of Yakobi Island within the West Chichagof-Yakobi Wilderness Area. The cabin was built in the 1940s by a fisherman. It is available year-round and makes an excellent base for experiencing this corner of Alaska with its many recreational options.
The cabin is remote. It is located approximately 41 miles west of Hoonah and 67 miles northwest of Sitka. It is accessible only by boat or float plane. The flight is 1 hour from Sitka or Juneau and the boat ride is 1 hour from Pelican.
This is a primitive cabin with no electricity, indoor plumbing or cell phone coverage. Visitors are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.
The cabin sits on relatively flat terrain near the rugged, rocky coastline of Yakobi Island. It is protected from the Pacific Ocean by Greentop Harbor. The surrounding area offers abundant seashore life and the beautiful scenery of West Chichagof-Yakobi Wilderness Area.
There are excellent opportunities for sea kayaking and boating in the numerous coves and protected bays. However, there are rocks in the area, so boating and kayaking excursions should be planned for high tide. Consult local tide tables.
The 2-story log cabin accommodates 6 people and contains 1 double and 3 single bunks, a table and benches, a cooking area, a broom and dust pan. A wood stove is provided for heat. Firewood is stocked in a wood shed. An outhouse is located close to the cabin.
