Kenai Wilderness Lodge

about Kenai Wilderness Lodge, Fox Island

Charming cabins set amongst the woods on the privately owned Fox Island, with beautiful ocean and lagoon views. This rustic and authentic lodge has just 8 cosy cabins, all with en-suite facilities with the majority of the power being generated by solar and wind. With no televisions or phones in the rooms, this rustic lodge provides you with the tranquil surroundings that you need to truly relax.

The main area of the lodge was built back in the early 1960’s and was bought by its current owners in 1997, they have expanded the lodge to include the cabins. Keeping the feel of the original building, you get to experience genuine Alaska.
