Stay in this lodge located in a very remote area in Prince William Sound only accessible by boat or by plane. The quaint and cozy cabins and main lodge offer humble yet comfortable accommodations. The lodge's owner and main host and chef, Chris, is proud to show you his home and his 'backyard' wilderness. Meals are cooked and served family style and peace and quiet is sure to be had here.
Your lodge host takes you out on excursions each day as you prefer, or drops you off to go adventuring on your own. Sea kayaks and gear are available, along with recreational fishing gear. Set out on the classic 32' former fishing vessel to tour the waters and spot wildlife along the shores.
Meals are prepared by the host using freshly grown vegetables and herbs in the local lodge greenhouse, as well as any fresh caught fish or flown in meats. Come gather blueberries from the fields around the Lodge, and then we will use our delicious sourdough starter for fresh blueberry pancakes. Go out and catch dinner from the front yard, like succulent halibut, or several varieties of delicious salmon. Alaska’s fresh blue mussels are right on the beach out front and you will enjoy collecting salmon berries and mushrooms from the boreal forest. Once you have had a paella made with tiny clams from our reef and wonderful fresh Alaska seafood, you will never forget it!

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
