Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge
The remote Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge sits on a spit of land along the private Fox Island in Resurrection Bay, nestled in the forest with an isolated pebble beachfront and towering glacial peaks. This 18-guest eco-retreat is accessed by a scenic 45-minute boat ride from Seward, and offers a backcountry stay surrounded by Kenai Fjords National Park.
Amenities & Common Areas
The main day lodge offers rustic charm and modern amenities with commanding views across Halibut Cove with its occasional sea lions and humpback whales. Indoors, the lounge features plush sofas and chairs around a warm stove and massive view windows. Outdoors, gracious deck spaces offer seating for all via picnic tables and Adirondack chairs.
The pebble beach at Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge provides easy access to pristine kayaking and is a prime location for an after-dinner beach campfire or session in the wood-fired sauna. And Fox Island features two Alaska State Marine Parks ready for exploration, with common sightings of Steller sea lions, otters, whales, Dall’s porpoise, and a variety of seabirds including eagles, puffins, cormorants and murres.
Glass wraps the walls of the laid back dining room, where gourmet meals reflect innovative menus with local ingredients. The menu also features a selection of fine wines by the glass or bottle, Alaskan beers, traditional spirits and libations. The chef and kitchen staff of Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge enjoy engaging with guests, and offer a culinary experience that encourages travelers to then re-create dishes at home.
The 8 knotty-pine, waterfront log cabins (4 each per building) offer views to either the freshwater lagoon or the bay. Each Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge guest cabin comes equipped with one queen bed and one queen-sized sofa bed, premium linens, ensuite bathroom with shower, propane heat, solar-powered lights and an alarm clock.
In order for guests to unplug and unwind, cabins do not offer electrical outlets, a television, radio or telephone (the main lodge has a charging station). However, view windows and a private deck for each cabin ensure no wildlife is missed.
