Tutka Bay Lodge
Tutka Bay Lodge is located on Kachemak Bay amidst jagged coastlines, ancient Sitka spruce forests, snow-capped mountaintops and dramatic fjords. This remote property (you can only get there by boat or float plane) is adjacent to Kachemak Bay and the Kenai Mountains, and is the perfect base for an exclusive Alaska experience. This special oceanfront lodge has six private accommodations, each with a stunning ocean or mountain view, connecting the indoors with the outdoors. Guests have their choice of activities including ocean kayaking, deep-sea fishing, salty air yoga classes, walking the coastline, and then there’s the wildlife viewing. Orcas, humpback whales, sea otters, and birding call this corner of Alaska home. When guests aren’t outdoors, you will probably find them in the kitchen. Aside from the extraordinary nature surrounding the lodge, the food is another reason to go. Owners Carl & Kirsten Dixon are gracious hosts, and are truly the heart of the property. Don’t miss the afternoon wine tastings and superb cooking classes, which are held on a 1940’s crabbing boat! Many guests choose to pair this luxury Alaska retreat with its sister property, Winterlake Lodge.
