Across Kachemak Bay from Homer, this lodge provides wildlife-viewing opportunities and panoramic mountain and bay vistas in an intimate setting for up to 14 guests. The main log building has a piano and a big stone fireplace to warm you after a day of hiking, fishing, kayaking, or touring in one of the lodge's five guided boats (some of the guided fly-out trips may cost extra). Scattered through the woods, the rustic cabins, all with electricity, full baths, and decks,
are decorated with antiques, original artworks, and homemade quilts. Cabin layouts differ slightly; some are best suited for couples, others for groups or families. Dinners focus on seafood—clams, mussels, and fish—caught in the bay. There's a two-night package for $1,750 per person, a three-night package for $2,400 per person and a five-night package for $3,750 per person; rates are half price for kids ages 6 to 12.
