Alaska Adventure vacation where memories are made for a lifetime. One client told the owner, “This has been the best day of my life next to the birth of my children!” Tiffany, from Alabama. Her family of six is about to embark on their third trip to this lodge and they travel the world on an annual basis.

Enjoy late afternoon with a cocktail overlooking the bay on the deck listening to the sound of the whales passing by. Private rustically elegant log cabins with bathrooms ensuite overlook the rushing stream as it makes its way into the bay. Every comfort of home has been well thought out and you will lack for nothing. The scenery is breathtaking and the meals are equally fantastic. The garden of fresh vegetables and crab pulled up from the crab pots are a part of every evening meal.
