About the property

Incredible Ocean Front 2 Bedroom Lodge

This amazing lodge is located just 15 miles out of Seward Alaska, and is only accessible by boat or helicopter. Our establishment sits on top of a 150 foot cliff directly above the ocean, commanding awe inspiring billion dollar views! From this spectacular vista watch humpback whales, orcas, otters and sea lions frolic below while eagles and ravens soar above! Come enjoy the comforts of Alaskan hospitality in this modern take on the old lodge feel. We like to call it 'sophistirustication'.

Accommodations here at Granite Point are top notch. A fully equipped kitchen complete with gas range, refrigerator and breakfast bar stand ready for all your culinary desires. You will find high tech LED lighting through out, powered by a renewable energy system, and a unique water catchment structure. Relax after a long day of adventuring with a hot shower, sit next to the inviting wood stove, and curl up on our comfortable couches. When you are ready to retire there are 2 cozy bedrooms, each with a large queen bed and private views of the ocean cove below. Kayaks and paddle board use is included with lodge or cabin rental.

There is now a way for larger groups to enjoy Granite Point Mountain Lodge with the addition of the Fox Den Cabin. This new cabin acts as a overflow for the main lodge or a separate rental that can sleep up to 4 more guests in beds, and has its own kitchenette.

You can reach Granite Point Mountain Lodge by an exciting landing craft ride provided by Seward Water Taxi, or a scenic helicopter flight available thru Seward Helicopter Tours.

About jeff

I have lived in Alaska for over 20 years, and have spent most of my free time exploring this beautiful state by kayaking, hiking, back country boarding hunting and fishing. My vision in creating Granite Point Mountain Lodge is to share my love of the wilderness by providing a comfortable base camp from which fellow travelers can explore the surrounding area.

Impressive View

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is impressively nice for how hard it is to get to. The water taxi was a little sketchy because of the swells and the stars are steep. All of this made the view and the cabin even more impressive when reached. Really scratched my head wondering how he got the couches up here. We had 5 adults and two kids under 5 and we all slept very comfortably ....well sort of. Our 10 month old kept us up all night, but that wasn't the cabins fault. Saw a whale too super close. This place is pretty epic.

Only knock on it is that he should get a quieter and smoother water pump. But hey, there was water which is pretty impressive.

A note for others, there is cell coverage here, but expect very little data if any.

One of my most memorable travel experiences ever!

  • 5 of 5

The Granite Point Mountain Lodge turned out to be everything we hoped it would be. The lodge was beautiful, the views were incredible, and the natural setting in which it stands was more than I expected. The natural beauty around the lodge was beyond words. My wife and I kept finding ourselves standing along the short trail from the lodge to the beach trying to take it all in. And we must have spent hours looking out at the view from inside the lodge.

The fishing from the shore and from Jeff's kayaks was excellent. There were a number of kayaks to choose from which we found convenient for our level of inexperience, but we became confident enough during our short stay that we ventured over to Thumb Cove for more gorgeous scenery. We enjoyed viewing plenty of marine life. There seemed to be a seal living off the beach below Jeff's property. It followed us around once or twice while we were out on the kayaks.

Seward has long been one of my favorite places in the world. We came back to it and stayed at GPML looking for a unique and memorable experience. We left Seward this time with an experience we'll never forget!

Tons of relaxation and wildlife watching.

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect fit for two couples. Watching the bay for wildlife was so fun. Saw whales, dolphins, sea otter, and sea lion. The fire pit was awesome, the beach was great. The owner was really nice. We stayed three nights, glad we did. Two wouldn't have been enough.

Watching Whales by the fire over Resurrection Bay. Oh my.

  • 5 of 5

Wow. This place has to visited to believe. The views from the lodge are breathtaking, the beach is intimate, yet large and intricate enough for fantastic beachcombing. Sitting on the rocks we watched humpbacks, otters, and countless waterbirds living their lives. Pepper Creek cascades down the mountainside emptying into Resurrection Bay. Pepper Creek is your water source during your stay. The lodge is off-grid, but so dialed in you would not know it.

The patio in front of the lodge atop the cliff offers vistas that never tire. The light, the water, the wildlife, the energy from this perch is one of the most amazing places on the planet.

Jeff Erickson, the owner, is the real deal. The man has lived and lived large. He not only has true, Alaskan, adventure stories to share, but is a great listener as well.

Jeff is there for the visitor and will alleviate any anxiety or concerns. This place is remote, but at the same time, within an hour boat ride to the safe harbor of Seward.

This is in the Alaskan wilderness with all the comforts of home.

The best nights of sleep in my life rolling over with bird songs, lapping waves, the occasional lobtail, and quiet. If you are thinking about this lodge, stop thinking and do it.
