I have been fishing my entire life, and I had been waiting 15 years to take this trip to Baranof after my dad had gone multiple times, and words cannot begin to explain the magic that is Baranof Wilderness Lodge. The entire crew are wonderful. Their hospitality is unmatched. The cabins are cozy and luxurious. Fresh coffee is brought to... More

The staff made it really fun and accommodating to all the guests. Sally and Mike (the owners) are entertaining as well as informational. Mike gave us an impromptu after-dinner lecture about tides. The fishing and the activities were fun, but the best were the whales that were so close, almost next to the boats. Thanks for a great trip.

Mike and Sally Trotter offer the most amazing Alaskan experience. From comfortable cabins near a salmon stream to Ocean fishing, whale watching, hot springs, bear watching and river fly fishing to outstanding meals and Mike's one and only passion for his clients and the outdoors. I have been on a few trips to Alaska and BC but none like this.... More

Your Hosts Mike and Sally will be waiting on the dock for you to arrive on your chartered float plane arriving from Sitka. But, they won't be alone. Accompanying them will be their entire staff, from deckhand and housekeeping through Captain and Chef. They easily outnumber the guests 2 to 1. They will out guess your needs for the next... More

The staff is amazing, kind, and patient! Our first day a humpback whale came and played at the docks. It was breathtaking to be so close to such a powerful animal. The clean air helped rejuvenate me. Our cabin was so comfortable and we could watch the whale from the bed! We had successful fishing, and saw tons of wildlife.... More

If you wish to experience the Alaska wilderness in a more than comfortable environment, this is the place. It was hard to believe that our private well-appointed cabin was surrounded by miles of wilderness that provided new adventures each day: whales breaching, bears feeding, eagles fishing...just to name a few. Everything about the experience is wonderful but their greatest asset... More

More than memorable; it's magical! A dedicated staff of trained professionals creates a larger-than- life adventure in good living. The staff is always on the alert for problems to solve, but more importantly, for service opportunities. A national-class setting; comfortable, artfully accessorized cabins; restaurant-quality food and beverage; and fabulous fishing. Sea lions and whales and bears, oh my! Looking forward... More
