Fodor's Expert Review Rock Haven
Across bay, Coffman Cove, Alaska, 99918, USA
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Walk up a slightly steep incline to the lodge, just a few minutes' boat ride from the shores of the fishing-centric Coffman Cove, and you'll find instant peace and relaxation, a scenic setting, good company, as well as access to trophy-size fishing. Owners Ellen and Dan live on the property year-round—and it's clear that they love sharing this haven with guests. The lodge's three guest rooms are comfortably decorated with plush beds and wooden furniture. The impressive main room features rich woods, leather furniture that invites long reading sessions, and views out to the water. Several packages are available, including round-trip transportation, fishing, adventures, and all meals. Consider booking a full meal plan; Ellen is a wonderful cook. A cookie jar is always filled with fresh-baked treats.

- lodge pets are a friendly bunch
- the town doesn't offer much in the way of restaurants
- you need to be handy with a skiff if you want to motor out to the lodge on your own—there are some widowmaker rocks in the water
