George Inlet Lodge rests on the shores of the spectacular George Inlet waterway! This picturesque lodge is accessible by road 15 miles south of Ketchikan. As a former cannery bunkhouse, it was built in the 1940’s and housed primarily the upper echelon of commercial fishing employees–ship captains, managers, and owners. After the cannery’s closing in 1970, two local businessmen, in an epic undertaking, had the lodge jacked up from its foundation and lowered onto a log raft. Towed for over 90 miles, the log raft crossed the waters of the Inside Passage from Hidden Inlet, located in the Portland Canal.

 

 

It is nothing short of miraculous that the 40 x 70 foot, hundred ton, three-story structure survived the relocation in tact. Since the pivotal year of 1974, the lodge has operated as an excellent sport fishing retreat complete with fine dining and cocktails. The rustic yet elegant atmosphere of the George Inlet Lodge is sure to provide you with a memorable experience of your visit to Alaska.
