Rainy Pass Lodge is situated 125 air miles northwest of Anchorage, Alaska.  Visiting the Lodge is like stepping back to a time when all of North America was untouched by man's hands—wild, magnificent and rugged. The Lodge is your rustic, yet well-appointed, home from which you can hunt, fish, hike, ski, ride horseback, sightsee, view the Iditarod or participate in any number of other activities. The Lodge is an unforgettable setting for special events such as weddings, family reunions, photo safari's, wine tastings, or corporate retreats. Of course, you can just relax amid the majesty of the Alaska Range. The Perrins family is there to make sure you are comfortable, well fed, and wonderfully worn out at the end of each day.

Rainy Pass Lodge is Alaska's oldest hunting lodge! It was founded in 1937 by Bud Branham, a legend among Alaska's Master Guides. 2014 will mark the Lodge's 76th year and many special activities are planned.

At Alaska Island Retreat, located on historic Kalgin Island Homestead, you can leave the crowds behind and enjoy a quality wilderness experience.

In the summer in Alaska, it’s difficult to find a beautiful place with excellent fishing opportunities together with peaceful solitude, but Alaska Island Retreat is located on beautiful remote Kalgin Island, on a historic homestead that encompasses both sides of Packers Creek.  The location is good for families because there are no bears on Kalgin Island, the cabins are on the beach, the food is healthful and delicious, and your fish will be ocean fresh.  (There is no spawning bed fishing here).

Delicious meals, prepared by our nutritionist, using local ingredients from the ocean, forest, and garden, are part of the deal.

You can catch Sockeye and Silver salmon from the creek and ocean.  In May, King Salmon fishing in the salt water can be very interesting.  Also, there is Rainbow trout fishing in the Island’s nearby lake.  Halibut can be caught near the Island.  Additionally, guests can experience traditional hand pull set netting from a skiff, weather permitting.

In late September and October, there are water fowl hunting opportunities, and limited opportunities for a moose in August.

There are high quality chamber vacuum sealers, freezers run by solar panels, smokehouses, and a fantastic sauna beside the creek.  The Island is only 75 miles from Anchorage or Homer and 25 miles from Kenai, however, it remains untrammeled by the summer hoards, and an ideal location to experience abundance and solitude.
