  • Best spot on the island

    "We fell in love with Halibut Cove and this cabin! The view from this cabin is astounding. It has all the comforts you might want and more. We had an amazing time and can't stop thinking about when we'll return."

  • Loved it!

    "A very beautiful, comfortable off the beaten path cabin in the woods. The cabin is immaculate and well located. Loved, loved, loved the deck. Cooper, the owners dog was a frequent visitor and just a delight. The owners very helpful & accommodating to anything you might need. We were to early for any of the tours they offer this year, but realized later that we had used their company for a Salmon float trip on our previous visit to Alaska. The guys went on and on about that side trip. We would highly recommend their Cabin and their excursions. We will use them on our next visit to this beautiful state!"

  • Great place to stay

    "This house is sunny (lots of windows), clean and comfortable, with beautiful plants! A well stocked kitchen, plenty of seating in the living room, cozy bedrooms, and a big bathroom to top it off. Close to both the airport and downtown Anchorage. We would definitely recommend this place."

The lodge was spacious, comfortable, clean, decorated very nicely and kitchen was well stocked There were great views from every window of the water and every day we enjoyed watching two eagles sitting on a tree branch. We definitely would return again."

In both summer and winter, there are a host of great activities that can keep you occupied on your travels.

The more traditional way to explore the countryside is by dog sledding. The dogs are superbly trained and exceptionally fast. This is an amazing experience. There are several places in Alaska where you can go whitewater rafting on grade IV and V rapids. Be prepared for the ride of your life on the churning white waters. For paddlers, there are many kayaking opportunities. You can also test your skills in the white waters or opt for something a little more leisurely up the fjords or along the coast. In season, you can experience amazing whale, dolphin and orca sightings and get up close to these magnificent creatures of the sea. There are endless hiking opportunities in Alaska.
