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.
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.
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.

We live in Alaska, but wanted to show my sister-in-law from Hawaii a unique Alaskan experience, and boy did this do it! Granite Point is absolutely fantastic. This is roughing it without the rough. We were lucky with 4 days of incredible weather, kayaking, whale-watching from the big stump overlooking Resurrection Bay, and just relaxing off the grid, with a view that just kept pulling us outside. This is NOT a bare bones cabin, it's a comfortable, fully equipped home--granted you do use an outhouse, but so what? It's Alaska! The stairs up to the cabin are a workout, but we carried in way too much food and drink. We'll be back every year and this will be our must take visitors to experience.
We spent two nights here and I wish we could have stayed longer. The lodge is absolutely beautiful and so clean. It's absolutely private, too. Pepper Creek Cabin is down on the beach, but you don't hear or see that cabin from up on the cliff. Honestly, there aren't words to describe how incredible this place is. The views from the living room are breath taking. We enjoyed dinner and a fire out on the cliff. Definitely take the kayaks out and paddle around! It's so peaceful. We saw eagles and a sea otter. No whales, but it sounds like lots of other people see them out there! We loved talking to Jeff and hearing more about how he built the lodge. This is truly a special place. There are so many thoughtful details, too, like the great coffee and snacks! Hot showers, fluffy towels and very comfortable beds. Thanks for sharing it with us, Jeff!
Jeff isn't kidding when he says to be ready to haul your stuff! The steps are steep, so pack in backpacks not rolling suitcases. The view at the top is absolutely worth the trip up the stairs!
Wow! If you want seclusion, beautiful views, comfortable place to stay, and a unique Alaska experience, this is a perfect spot! It really is quite the engineering feat. Aside from needing to use the outhouse outside, everything in the cabin is so comfortable and convenient (hot showers, running water, comfortable beds and couches, huge windows, kitchen appliances, outdoor grill with everything you need, and a great supply of pantry items, spices, and drinks, including GOOD coffee). It rained for a good chunk of our stay but we still enjoyed the time overlooking the water (saw one sea otter just below) and reading and talking in the cabin. In good weather the fire pit is great. We enjoyed talking with Jeff about how he built it, too. Highly recommended! I would not bring young children because of the cliffs and all the steps, though.
My family of 5 stayed in Jeff's Granite Point Lodge for three nights. We will have lasting memories of cooking smores out by the fire overlooking Resurrection Bay. The kayak trips to Humpy Cove and Thumb Cove were breathtaking. The lodge itself is well constructed and save the hike to the outhouse, all the creature comforts were available to us. We grilled salmon one night as we watched the whales and sea otters and listened to the chirping eagles overhead.
Plan on quite a workout getting your luggage and supplies up and down to and from the lodge. I recommend bringing boots or water shoes to wear while kayaking.
We paid extra for the water taxi to give us a tour of the area. They took us to a nearby rookery and to the mouth of the bay where we saw a pod of approximately 10 humpback whales hunting. It was an incredible sight and sound.
I highly recommend Granite Point Lodge and it's owner Jeff.
I have two little children, 7 and 4 and we were looking for an authentic Alaska vacation with a few more luxuries than typical (shower and power). This place is truly one-of-a-kind. We took the train from Anchorage to Seward and then a boat right to the house. Right when we pulled onto the shore we knew we picked the right spot. The house was perfect, and they even had a bunch of items we forgot (hot chocolate!). We took the kayaks out every morning to fish and whale watch. We caught 100's (really, 100's) of delicious rock fish, I pulled in a nice size halibut (yup, from the kayak) and whales and dolphin's swimming right next to us was a daily occurrence. We hiked up the stream many times and other than boats coming in and out of the bay, no one was around for miles. The cell phone booster was also a bonus (I had never cleaned a halibut, so I was able to watch a youtube video).
Everything about this place is amazing... you can't go wrong.

Like you're climbing up into a tree house, and then you arrive at this amazing lodge perched on a cliff! We set up our food in the kitchen, grabbed a brew and returned to the beach for some horseshoes and paddling. Back to the lodge for an outdoor campfire and vast views of the bay. Hung out, relaxed, and watched whales. Dope surround sound system in the lodge. Great hike up through the woods- found a lake! Fantastic spot. Highly recommend this gem on the bay. The water taxi ride adds another adventure!
The property is located 15 miles out of Seward Alaska, and only reached by landing craft or helicopter. It is a remote location surrounded by beautiful Resurrection Bay and pristine rugged mountains. World class sea kayaking awaits you out your front door and the marine wildlife viewing is truly spectacular!
