My husband and I with our two children (12 & 9) had the pleasure to stay at Orca Island two nights and three days. Words can not describe the beauty and nature this magical island offers. We hiked, kayaked, fished and most importantly completely relaxed. Susan, Dennis, Simon and Yen are impeccable hosts. I know we will be back to... More

What a stunning, magical place. Dennis, Susan and family have created a incredibly special place in their tiny nook within Resurrection Bay, and we are lucky that they share this with us. Stress melts away the moment you step onto the dock at the cabins. The views and wildlife you experience are spectacular - we were lucky to see otters... More

The setting was ideal for a getaway - we hiked, paddleboarded, kayaked and took long afternoon naps. A whale breached 30 feet from our kayak one evening - the memory of a lifetime. The perfect combination of comfort and connection to the out-of-doors. Our hosts were helpful but not overbearing - you could really feel alone but have the security... More

What a remarkable place. The care and attention the Swiderski family has put into creating this Resurrection Bay haven is apparent not only in the lodgings and amenities, but in the way they have respected the natural habitat that surrounds the property. We travel regularly and have been fortunate to have countless experiences — from the most rustic to the... More

I spent two nights here the first week of June and it was a wonderful place to unwind, kayak and spend some quality time with my oldest son. (My son lives in Denver and I live in Anchorage.) The views are spectacular and the accommodations are clean and comfortable; however the real attraction is Resurrection Bay. The natural beauty, abundant... More

I'm not sure we would have come across Orca Island if it wasn't for Tripadvisor, and we'll always be thankful for that. What an incredible experience. We stayed for two nights and wish we could have done a 3rd. The weather was the only negative, as there was rain on and off our entire trip. Everyone involved (Dennis, Susan, Yen,... More
