The lodge is serene, peaceful, and is surrounded by indescribable beauty. Mike Trotter could not be a more perfect Santa, unwrapping the next days' presents each evening after dinner. The "Fun Board" is a personalized... More

Our week at Baranof Wilderness Lodge was a highlight of the year. Wonderful, knowledgeable staff. Individualized opportunities for a variety of activities. One day fishing (superb guides) the next seeing whales, eagles and bears. Great food! All in one of the most beautiful places in Southeast Alaska. Can't wait to visit again.

Baranof Wilderness Lodge and the Baranof Wilderness Base Camp are my two favorite places on planet earth! We first vacationed at Baranof with our family in 2004, returned with our family in 2005, and since then, we have been there 4 other times with friends!
