clammingAfter a day of fishing on the Kenai River, clamming or beach combing, return to the Clam Gulch Lodge BnB to discuss the day’s adventures with other guests from around the world. Warmed by the flames of our stone fire pit, guests share their Alaskan adventure stories of the ocean, river, and mountainside with other travelers whom may have chosen to remain closer to the comfort of our Alaskan Vacation Lodge and snap photographs of eagles, moose, and ravens.

Wild flowers, wild berries, moose sightings, ocean air, and beautiful vistas of the Alaskan wilderness are part of what makes our job so easy: We love the stunning bluff on which we live and we love sharing it with travelers who enjoy fresh Alaskan fare; great Alaska fishing; and sunsets that city dwellers still see in their dreams.

10 Foot Landing

10 Foot Takeoff
Unlike other places where speed may dominate pilot discussions, up here it’s all about how slow you can go. It’s directly related to how quickly you can get off the ground and how little room you need to land.

It’s called, “STOL” or “short take-off and landing” and here in Alaska it is synonymous with flying.
