Tutka Bay Lodge

Homer, Alaska

Situated at the southern end of Kachemak Bay, Tutka Bay Lodge is ideal for exploring the Alaskan wilderness. Six private rental cabins, a massive sunning deck, a gourmet kitchen, and even an on-staff masseuse make up this glamorous option in the middle of the wild; 907/274-2710.

Eat: Before making the 25-minute trip by boat over to Tutka Bay Lodge from Homer, stop in at any of the fish-n-ship joints, like the Mermaid B&B and Café for an espresso and great homemade fare. Once you arrive at Tutka Bay Lodge, you won't be disappointed with the fresh local salmon and oysters prepared by Chef Kirsten Dixon, trained at Le Cordon Bleu.

Do: Take a sightseeing tour of Kachemak Bay, hike the nearby area, or go fishing with Seaman's Adventures. Learn how to prepare your fresh catch with The Cooking School at Tutka Bay.
