Full description

This holiday blends two of Alaska's most remarkable lodges and offers a plethora of activities from walking, hiking and canoeing to berry picking, bird watching and fishing. Both properties offer cooking classes and cheese and wine tasting along with yoga classes, use of the hot tub and a complimentary massage (one per person per stay).

Winterlake Lodge offers five guest cabins, nestled along a mile-long lake that is home to loons, swans, bears, moose and arctic grayling. Guests can enjoy opportunities for hiking and wildlife viewing with many species of Alaskan birds often seen nearby, as well as a variety of wildflowers and berries that are rarely seen.

Situated on an eleven-acre property, Tutka Bay Lodge offers a main lodge, six private guest accommodations, a sauna, hot tub and boat house – all connected by boardwalk. The lodge offers an array of activities to introduce you to the Kachemak Bay marine community. In addition to tide-pooling and other marine-based activities, guests can often visit the nearby villages of Seldovia and Homer for art galleries and cultural exploration. Guided adventure activities include deep-sea fishing for salmon and halibut, freshwater fishing, ocean kayaking and hiking the unique trail system.
