Kym & Mark – Eagle River, AK
As the lodge’s website developer, I’ve been drooling over the pictures and descriptions of the lodge on the website for over three years now. My opportunity to visit did not disappoint! It’s amazing when you find new ways to experience the beauty of this state as local Alaskans. My husband and I will definitely be back!
Deena and Tom Norton – Phoenix, Arizona
We went to Raspberry Island for our honeymoon. I have numerous dietary restrictions and was very nervous about going somewhere where I couldn’t go to a grocery store to supplement the foods and get enough nutrition. Tiffany listened and reassured me that they would take care of me and they did. The food was awesome and they made me feel safe.
We’ve never been on a fishing trip and I went because Tom wanted to go. It was THE BEST!!! We had a blast and want to go back just for the fun of fishing with Birch and the gang. The halibut and salmon were amazing and the family atmosphere of everyone coming down to meet the boat when it came in each day was so much fun. Hanging out, talking about the adventures of the day, eating fresh tanner crab, drinking beer…awesome!!!
We’re big aviation buffs and loved the float plane rides. Who knew that a “fly out bear viewing” meant you parked in the ocean, walked onto an island and hung out with the bears – yikes! LOL! Our guide made us feel safe which is so crazy in hindsight, but it was a once in a lifetime experience.
Roger and Brandon Podhola – Rhinelander/Green Bay, Wisconsin
What an outstanding experience! We fit in so much during our week at the lodge. The staff and other guests from FL quickly became new friends and we had some great times together. We returned home with halibut, salmon and crab to last us awhile and the fishing, hiking, kayaking, wildlife and great jokes will always be remembered as some of the many highlights of the week. Our expectations were exceeded. Now the countdown begins for our next visit to Raspberry Island.
Thanks Birch, Tiffany, Mike, Chelsea, Scott, Devin, Sage, Fisher, Kenny and Linda. We had a lot of fun.
Hall & Goulden – Poulsbo, WA & Portola Valley, CA
This was our first visit BUT not our last! We each brought back a 100 pounds of fish – mostly Halibut and Silver Salmon with some Black Rockfish too. The wildlife is amazing.
Goulden and Hall – Portola Valley, CA and Poulsbo, WA
Mike and I first visited the lodge in 2011. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we made our wives join us this year (Yes, this is absolutely true!). They came somewhat reluctantly but we started planning another longer visit in 2013 during our return flights. The sockeye and crab were very cooperative as was the wildlife.

Sometimes you got to a place and expect or at least hope it will be great-and are disappointed. And some times magic happens…..The scenery, bears, fishing, jokes and hospitality are all something we will never forget. Warning though—we’re sending all our friends to visit. It is sad for us to leave. – Vic
I will never forget the kayaking and wonderful setting. The scenery was fantastic. I will always remember my first fly fishing lesson…Thanks again for a great week. – Tracy
Terry & Mason
Mason and I really enjoyed our week at your beautiful lodge. Everyone was warm and friendly and worked so hard to make our experience the best. We love the beauty of this place and enjoyed all the activities…
