Returning Team for 2024

Captains Bob and Brian will be joining us this summer, along with Chef Vincent, guides Hillary and Dannie, and of course Fisher and Sage.  Annie will help cover for Sage before Sage returns from school, and after she leaves us again this fall!  We’re thankful to have a dynamic team familiar with the goings on […]

New Outdoor Kitchen and Banya!

The banya was one of the first buildings my parents built in the mid-80s and, while still nearly as good as new, we decided to disassemble that building last winter and start over from scratch.  We love the original footprint of the banya my dad designed when he built the building, but added some space […]

New Hydro and Solar Power

In the spring of 2023, we underwent a complete upgrade of our existing hydroelectric system; we rebuilt our hydro building as well as added a new battery building, complete with permanent magnet 60 amp/48volt hydro generators, Lithium Ion (LFP) Batteries, new 15kw inverters, added a 72-panel solar farm, and new 40kw Caterpillar on-demand diesel generator.

Facebook Updates

Throughout the year, especially during the summer months, I do my best to journal on our lodge’s Facebook Page.  I also do my best, with our limited internet, to post video and pictures as frequently as I can, as well.  Winter time posts are whatever I can find; what does Raspberry Island look like under 2” […]

Top Ten Reasons to Visit Raspberry Island in June

June is one of our favorite months on Raspberry Island, and since it is really the first month of our summer, Tiffany and I thought we’d write a “top ten” list featuring June: 10:  Summer is here!!  Vegetation is coming in green, pushing right into the snow up high. 9:  The Kodiak Island Brown Bear […]


We are nearly complete booked for the remainder of this summer and are humbly receiving reservations for 2013 and 2014.  Returning to Raspberry Island and referring your friends and family interested in a vacation to Alaska is the greatest honor guests could give us.  Many are doing so, and planning their return or first visit.  […]

Summer Update

We have had an incredible start to our summer, beginning in late April with the various construction projects we undertook, and […]
