Alaska's Ridgewood Wilderness Lodge, Homer — Soak up the Alaskan wilderness at this intimate, timber framed lodge on Ishmailof Island adjoining Kachemak Bay State Park, part of the Kenai Peninsula Mountain Range.  Enjoy three gourmet meals a day, and highly personal attention with majestic scenery, miles of beaches, and secluded salt water coves right out the front door.  

The hosts of this secluded getaway are two sourdough Alaskans, Kevin and Lucinda Sidelinger. Kevin, who built the lodge using timbers from the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, created a building that compliments the environment.  The Douglas fir, timber-framed bedrooms offer plenty of space as well as large windows and panoramic views of the bay, mountains, and beaches, along with private baths and an undeniably Alaskan flavor. Or indulge your senses watching for whales, porpoises, sea otters, and seals from the decks that surround the lodge. This eco system is quite unlike any other.  Enjoy the sounds and the smells of this rich marine environment.

Activities to enjoy on your own such as bird watching, hiking the extensive trail system within the Kachemak Bay State Park, miles of beaches to walk and beach comb, or let your imagination wander, visiting an early last century trapper’s cabin set in amongst massive cotton woods along a clear mountain stream. Don’t forget your trout rod for this may be the opportunity to catch that big rainbow trout.
