Remote Alaska Adventure Lodging

Two Family-Owned, Full-Service Alaska Adventure Lodges

Carl and Kirsten Dixon have been operating rustic luxury lodges in the backcountry of Southcentral Alaska since 1983. Both of our authentic full-service lodges offer award-winning cuisine, professional guide service and accommodations, and all with world-class views of Alaska. We offer an exciting collection of adventure activities such as fishing, hiking, bear and wildlife viewing, fly-in hiking and fishing excursions, and more.

Each backcountry lodge offers something completely different, all within the context of spending time on the path less traveled in Alaska – and, all Within the Wild.
