We passed a great time in the Ridgewood Wilderness Lodge. Kevin constructed their wonderful house himself. It became a very nice lodge in the middle of wonderful nature. We liked the good food, the interesting outdoor activities and the perfect service.

Our family's stay at the Ridgewood Lodge was the highlight of our Alaskan vacation. The Sidelinger family who runs the lodge provides a perfect blend of relaxation and adventure. They work hard to take care of everything you may need, from the delicious meals to the customized wilderness treks. Everything is taken care of with love and a smile. The... More

Heaven on Earth! The Ridgewood Inn was not only the four best days of my 10 day Alaska vacation, but four of the best days of my life (and I have travelled to many parts of the world on a variety of different wonderful vacations). 1) The VIEWS and SCENERY – Absolutely breathtaking!! Majestic mountains with snowcaps in the background,... More

This is the real deal! A small very comfortable family run lodge with personal attention to detail. Fabulous food and the full Alaskan experience on offer. Our stay here was only three nights, giving us two full days. Too short. Black bears on the beach at Halibut cove. harbor seals and many sea otters in the bay. Puffins, bald eagles... More

We stayed for a couple of nights at the end of our Kenai fishing trip and were very pleasantly surprised. The Sidelinger family run a beautiful and lovingly maintained property, with every detail seen to, in a relaxed environment with no distractions such as radio or TV. Kevin and Lucinda welcomed us to their home, and frankly it never felt... More

My husband and I had an amazing visit to the Ridgewood Wilderness Lodge with the Sidelinger family late in August 2013. Halibut Cove is one of the most beautiful places on earth but it was honestly the graciousness and warmness of the Sidelinger family that left a lasting memory with us. We were greeted by Kevin and Lucinda as if... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Ridgewood this June. I can't say enough about the hospitality the Sidelingers exhibited. We booked our trip almost a year in advance and Jess never complained when I asked her tons of questions in preparation for our trip. It was nice having the water taxi arranged for us - one less...

Beautiful lodge with a pristine view. We felt right at home, the food was amazing - made fresh daily. Lodge owners were super friendly and took the time to make things extra special. It was all about the details. Every day our day was planned with adventures. Very accommodating, once in a life time experience. One of my favorite things... More
