Two Unique Alaska Lodges

One dedicated team

The Within the Wild family owns and operates two remote Southcentral Alaska lodges, offering a range of adventures from exploring the endless views from the top of a mountain in the Alaska Range to sea-kayaking near whales and otters in the Pacific Ocean.


COVID-19 Update

Our lodges are remaining OPEN for the 2020 season and the State of Alaska is authorizing interstate travel beginning June 5’th.

Our Anchorage office can provide details and answer any questions you might have about your visit with us. And, our enthusiastic and knowledgable team is presently in place and ready to greet you at both Tutka Bay Lodge and Winterlake Lodge.

We have implemented many health and safety measures to ensure that both our guests and staff will be safe and comfortable in our new-normal world. You can read about these measures in our BLOG posted listed HERE.

We have some availability for last-minute reservations. 

Amidst our normal offerings at our boutique six-cabin retreats, we offer a new Your Own Private Wilderness program – Lodge buy-out for privacy, sanctuary, and rejuvenation. Call our reservations office for details.

This is Who We Are

Authentic to place, ethical in detail

The Within the Wild family of lodges were founded on the vision of the Dixon family. Thirty-plus years into their backcountry adventure, they are as enthusiastic and inspired by their surroundings as they were from the very beginning. And, nothing gives them more pleasure than to share their Alaska dream.
