Unique Alaska Luxury Adventure Lodging

Full-Service Lodge and Guided Experiences

We invite you to Tutka Bay Lodge, an award-winning boutique adventure lodge nestled along the south shore of Kachemak Bay. The lodge is situated at the head of a deep nine-mile fjord surrounded by Kachemak Bay State Wilderness Park, offering endless wild places to explore. At Tutka Bay Lodge, we offer transformative adventures, rustic luxury, nature-based wellness, and award-winning cuisine that immerse you in our natural world.

Within the Wild is a curated collection of three Dixon family-owned Alaska properties. We own and operate Tutka Bay Lodge and sister businesses, the Danish Daughter Farm and La Baleine Cafe, all located in or near Homer, Alaska, within the Kachemak Bay region of Southcentral Alaska.

Just outside of Homer lies our Danish Daughter Farm, a verdant 40-acre flower farm, where pastoral beauty compliments the wildness of Tutka Bay.  Tour the farm, meet Carl and Kirsten Dixon, and perhaps have lunch or a cooking class while there.

And on the Homer Spit, La Baleine Cafe offers rustic, harborside dining where every meal is grounded in our commitment to hospitality and local bounty. Consider this your base camp for exploring the vibrant artisan shops along the Homer Spit.

Together, these three facets of Within the Wild are bonded by a shared mission: to celebrate the abundance and beauty of Alaska, to share our love of our home with our guests, and to work toward the preservation and protection of wild places.

This is Who We Are

Authentic to place, ethical in detail

The Within the Wild Adventure Company was founded on Carl Dixon and his family’s vision of life lived close to the natural world. Forty-plus years into their backcountry adventure, they are as enthusiastic and inspired by their surroundings as they were initially. And nothing gives them more pleasure than to share their Alaska dream.
