The lodge is located in Kachemak Bay, near Homer on the Kenai Peninsula and adjacent to Kachemak Bay State Park. Situated between Halibut Cove and Seldovia, the secluded Tutka Bay reaches seven miles into the glacier studded Kenai Mountains. These glaciers join one another to form the massive Harding Ice Field, which presses down the other side of the mountains into Kenai Fjords National Park. The Lodge buildings are situated on a narrow strip of land that is bordered on two sides by water and offer the perfect vacation setup. Extravagant decks and walkways connect each building which are placed along the edge of the land, with ample views of the water and lush wilderness. The remote Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge offers a unique Alaskan experience for travelers looking for premium comfort in less traveled places.
