I stayed here for 2 nights when I was on a Natural Habitat tour of various places in Alaska. This place was a highlight. The log cabins were very comfortable with a stunning view. The electricity is provided by solar energy and isn't enough for a hair dryer but enough for lights. We didn't really need lights though since the... More

We spent two nights here during a wildlife safari, and enjoyed the outstanding cuisine. The chef is quite good, and his use of local ingredients is a treat. Cabins along the beach are rustic, but comfortable. There was a large bed and a sofa bed, so one of us had to sleep on the sofa bed. It was comfortable enough.... More

The cabins were surprisingly nice - the lack of electricity was unnoticeable, really. The bed was wonderful, and the view was captivating. The food was exceptional, the staff was friendly and attentive without overdoing it. The lodge was welcoming and restful. I cannot evaluate the value for the dollar because we never knew the price (part of a package). But... More

This place is expensive but we felt it was worth it. Pleasant cabin with a very plush bed. The service was exceptional. The food, prepared by the chef, was okay, not anything memorable. The evening snacks were actually better than the entrees. Private lodge with small fireplace and beautiful view. Paddle boating on the lake behind was fun. We saw... More

We are very dissatisfied with our stay at the Fox Wilderness Lodge. We did not get the culinary experience and the Kayak tour which was included in our package. Culinary experience was cut off as they said they do not offer it for Vegetarians. And there was lot of confusion about the Kayak, we were told they tried reaching us... More

The reservation people were so very helpful I had great expectations for this lodge. Several big disappointments: (1) We had a party of three and the sofa bed mattress was horrible--very, very uncomfortable. (2) One of the three breakfast choices was oats which were simply softened in hot water and even then were still raw. My husband commented he got... More

I'm an Alaskan and I loved this. A little spendy but I was impressed. This is not everybody's kind of thing but it exceeded my expectations. Chef Ryan, Elena, Alyssa, great staff, nice cabins, wonderful meals.

Before I start I have to warn you that there is limited service and none at all with some carriers. When you go here you need to put yourself in the mindset of being "unplugged" I thought it would be hard staying here by myself without internet but in the end I truly was able to enjoy this place without...

This wilderness lodge was the culmination of our family's vacation. I would definitely suggest staying at least 2 nights to get the most out of this wonderful place. As soon as you arrive on the island, you are greeted by the staff and they take you to a most delicious lunch. After lunch we did both the Ranger walk as... More

The Lodge on Fox Island was renovated last year, and the main lodge, dining room/gift shop, and cabins are beautiful, spacious, and picturesque. There is a small lagoon behind the cabins that has paddle boats which the other's guests' youngsters enjoyed. Electric power for the cabins' lights is provided by solar panels which preclude lights at night which would exhaust... More
