What Guests Say

“Our third time here and we find something new and wonderful everytime. This has become our Alaskan home.”
Shizuko Kato, Osaka, Japan
How amazing to watch seal lion roar, brown bear cross the beach just ahead of us, see rare sea birds and end the day with a 10pm waterski run down the bay! Also nice to see a family working together so well… many talents here.
Parvis and Kay Sadighi, Massachusetts
This was the BEST lodge we’ve been to. All the comforts of home in a remote setting. Very friendly people, helpful and obliging… like Laura Ashley marries Eddie Bauer! Caught fish here when all were getting skunked everywhere else. The lodge even added extra fish to our box of frozen fish for the trip home.
Don and Joyce Benioff, California
