KBWL was the second phase of our Alaska Adventure- the first being in the mountains of Wrangell-St.Elias National Park. The waterfront location of KBWL provided a pleasant contrast to the first phase of our trip. The setting is gorgeous- right on the water surrounded by snow capped peaks. Everyday provided options for 2-3 activities ranging from hiking, kayaking, fishing, wildlife...

From the first contact at the dock in Homer for our short boat transport to the farewell at the end of our stay, the staff at Kachemak Bay Wilderness lodge treated us like as family and honored guests. A wonderful vacation, for adults and children alike. We enjoyed beautifully prepared meals, well appointed accommodations, and a variety of activities that...

I am so heartened to read all the great reviews of KBWL and, necessarily the comments about Mike, Diane and the staff. I had the great pleasure of being a member of staff nearly 20 years ago now (yikes) and it was more like living with and hosting family than work each and every day. (If your family includes a...

It has been months since our return from our visit to Kachemak Bay Wilderness Lodge and the thrill is still there. It feels like just yesterday we were sitting around the dinner table talking, sharing, laughing about today's adventure and making plans for tomorrow. The experience was like a wonderful book or movie and I was the main character, I...

Two weeks after our visit to Kachemak Bay Wilderness Lodge the feelings of wonder and happiness which were created continue to resonate in an almost physical way. This is not just a beautiful lodge in a stunning location which is surrounded on all sides by wildlife - although it is all of those things. Kachemak Bay Wilderness Lodge welcomed us...

An incredible stay: the location, the facilities, the service, the staff, everything! No wonder it's hosted world class visitors over the years. This place is not inexpensive - but probably the best travel dollars we've ever spent. If there is a paradise on earth, Katchemak Bay should be in the running. My only regret was having to leave.

There are so many wonderful things to say about this Lodge and the (McBride) family that owns and runs it. They are so talented to hire the best guides and cooks, their enthusiasm is contagious. There are so many activities to chose from that you cannot complete all that is offered in 5 days. There are five cabins that are...
