“A True Alaskan Fishing Adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

Have been a past guest at Shelter Cove and this lodge is outstanding. I am writing this as I was convinced by a friend to go elsewhere. I wasted a TON of money to stay in Sitka this past summer. Will Never make that mistake again.. These people are friendly, professional and work to give you the BEST Alaskan fishing experience. Will never waiver on my choice again!!

Stayed September 2011, traveled with friends

This lodge is normally used for groups charter fishing in the summer but in the winter it's like a mildly luxurious space to relax. Ask for any of the rooms that face the water. There are only two floors but the first floor rooms facing the street aren't pretty and feel somewhat dingy (probably because as soon as you open your drapes you are faced by monstrous vans parked outside if you happen to get the first floor rooms)

In winter, it felt like we "lived" in the place as we had the great room to ourselves (fireplace, couches, large TV, tables to play board games and large picture windows that looked out the water. There was no one monitoring the desk, no lodge workers frittering around doing laundry, cleaning rooms or prepping meals. This also meant that if we needed immediate assistance, we had to wait until someone came down to help (there was a number left on the front desk for emergencies). Fortunately, we never had to use this. Everything was ready on our arrival (I reserved three rooms) and everyday for the next three days our rooms were tidy and supplies replenished when we returned.

Great lodge to use for small groups and walking distance to the one main grocery store (Thompson's) in town. Though I noticed very few people walking likely due to inclement weather

Bring your own snacks if you're a snacker (there were no vending machines for that late night sweet tooth). The town closes down early so plan accordingly.

Room Tip: Ask for water side.
