Tutka Bay Lodge

Alaska, USA

Tutka Bay Lodge is a 4-star property nestled at the head of the rugged nine-mile fjord in greater Kachemak Bay, Alaska. Just a short boat ride from Homer, the lodge is surrounded by tide pools, natural estuaries, and thirty acres of old-growth spruce forest. A unique trail system and quiet cove near the large oceanside deck provide a distinctly Alaska maritime feel, offering a serene space to observe marine life and soak in fresh ocean air.

The family-owned and operated lodge offers a remote, genuine, and transformative stay within Alaska’s coastal wilderness. Enjoy adventures within the bay by kayak, boat, or seaplane, or simply take in the views of a perfect juxtaposition of mountain and sea while enjoying world-class service.
