The Second Star Mansion is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The most luxurious destination wedding in Alaska! We are a destination wedding and do have a 3 night minimum requirement. Imagine a stunning seaside lodge sparkling with luxury unlike anything you have ever seen… in one of the world’s most majestic settings. Children young and old can climb, slide, dream and play in a 2,000 square foot Neverland complete with Pirate Ship (be careful not to walk the plank!). Pamper yourself in your own private SPA wing that includes an indoor pool, steam room, Turkish Bath, massage room, and infrared sauna. Play shuffleboard or foosball in the spacious game room. Take in a movie in a huge custom theater (with a secret passageway to a candy shop). Wander over to the opulent library perched above the ocean to read a book. Spy Alaska’s wildlife through the giant telescope in a 270 degree conservatory …like seals sunning themselves on the rocks below. Enjoy cooking in a fabulous gourmet kitchen; snuggle in front of any of 4 fireplaces for S’mores; prepare homemade pizzas in the outdoor wood-fired pizza oven. Or you can simply relax on the 3,000 square foot private deck right above an oceanfront paradise with unforgettable views of the waters of Kachemak Bay and the wondrous mountains and pristine glaciers that surround it. There is an endless array of adventure calling you year round at this property… Experience Alaska in majestic wonder and luxury. Imagine you and your loved ones in the most picturesque city in Alaska (some would even say the world!) where sightings of wildlife happen every single day. Imagine waking to the sound of the Bald Eagles’ singing (they don't caw, cry, or chirp--they actually sing!). Make your way down your own private beach path to the ocean where otters, seals, and even Humpback Whales can be seen. Imagine dining at one of the many magnificent local restaurants, with amazingly fresh seafood and farm-to-table produce from award winning chefs. The surrounding area is a haven for beauty and adventure--and every day in the Second Star Mansion is a dream. You will make memories to last forever. And if your soul craves adventure, then imagine world-class fishing* in the Halibut Capital of the World, salmon fishing in rivers, streams, and an ocean teeming with this delicious sought-after seafood. Imagine taking a private sea-plane* to a front-row seat to the Bear’s playground, kayaking*, biking*, horseback riding*, and dozens of hikes* on well-groomed trails in the greenest, most pristinely beautiful wilderness you have ever seen. It is our pleasure to help you arrange all of these excursions and more including private chefs, personal shopping, in-home massage, travel, transfers, and anything you can think of with your own personal concierge. Upon booking, you are assigned your own private Alaska Luxury Adventures Magic Maker. So imagine yourself (and up to 29 of your friends and loved ones) capping off every night by sleeping soundly in one of 8 custom suites with pillow top mattresses and exquisite sheets. In the master suite, the moon reflects off the ocean and onto the decorative tin ceiling—and it shimmers like magic. Neverland, the Spa wing, 2 gourmet kitchens, giant theater room, library, 14 bathrooms, conservatory, massive walls of windows and luxurious sitting rooms are all included in this 17,000 square foot, 2.5 acre paradise. And in an unmatched wilderness setting that is superbly unforgettable! Create your life’s most magical memories at the Second Star Mansion!
