We actually visited in summer 2010, but I am confident that the experience has not changed, and even likely gotten better. My husband and I fortunate to be introduced to the Dixon family a few years ago and visited their other Within the Wild property both summer and winter. I was on an unexpected business trip to Alaska in the...

I recently attended a writers' workshop at Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge. We took a boat from Homer to the Lodge and the staff met us at the dock. They took our luggage to the pre-assigned rooms while showing us around the beautiful property. The owner is a chef and supervises two other chefs so the food we had was exquisite....

My wife and I visited the lodge during a Holland America cruise tour and stayed two nights. We have been many unique places around the world and this location is nearly incomparable. The scenery combined with the food and expert hospitality staff made the stay actually worth the quoted 'spendy' cost. If you are looking for truly spectacular experience why...

This was the most amazing trip we have ever taken! We were there with our two children, ages 5 and 8, and they are begging every week to go back. We stayed there four days and our kids would have liked to have stayed there our whole Alaskan vacation (me, too, for that matter). We went kayaking every day (seeing...

“I can’t say enough good things about our visit to the Tutka Bay Lodge. If you’re one for nature and adventure then you MUST plan a trip to this Alaskan getaway. Perfectly secluded (there are only six lodges, so it mostly feels like the whole place is yours) and surrounded by 40,000 acres of protected land – the scene is...

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. Eagles Nest was our room and the view was fabulous, with eagles swooping past the balcony and a lovely warm ambience. Upon arrival at Tutka we were shown over the property, booked our massages and enjoyed a wonderful rockfish lunch. Food is available at any time upon request and is of...

My husband and I were here this past weekend strictly for the cooking class they offer as it was a Christmas present from his kids. Although we weren't there as overnight guests, we got a tour of the grounds. We were the only two in the cooking class as it was a bit on the shoulder season. This allowed us...
