You can’t beat fun for a good time, and as your hosts at the Ridgewood, we are committed to making your time here just that fun – GUARANTEED! Kevin and Bowman have a combined experience of fifty-five years on Kachemak Bay and in Kachemak Bay State Park, and whether your interest is fishing, glacier kayaking, wildlife viewing, bear viewing or hiking, they can show you Alaska at its best. For a complete description of all the activities we have to offer, please visit our Eco Tours Page.

Soak up the Alaskan wilderness at this intimate, timber framed lodge in Halibut Cove, adjoining the 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.  

Most Alaska Lodges specialize in only one or two pre-arranged activities, but at our Alaska Wilderness Lodge, Lucinda can arrange area eco-tours like brown bear photography trips, halibut or salmon charters, guided kayaking, heli-hiking or flight seeing. Other guided activities included in the cost of your stay are bird watching, wildlife viewing, hiking the extensive trail system within the Kachemak Bay State Park, glacier kayaking, 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. Then return to the Island to relax in the lodge with dramatic high ceilings cut across by rustic timbers, or enjoy the mountains, and the cove from a comfy deck chair, talking to Kevin and Lucinda about their life in Alaska. They can always be encouraged to share their years of pioneering oyster farming on the bay, or trekking across remote wilderness areas in the Great Land with their favorite Llamas. It is the perfect complement to a very Alaskan experience. Join Lucinda as she prepares your meals, or just enjoy the melding of scents wafting from the kitchen. Lucinda will help you plan a memorable earth friendly Alaska family vacation.

Our minimum stay is 2 nights, our maximum capacity is 12 guests, and we are open year 'round. As one of the finest Wilderness Lodges in Kachemak Bay, you will have a room with a private bath, three gourmet meals each day, round trip water taxi transportation from Homer, use of all Lodge facilities, high-speed wireless internet access and all in-house activities.
