The Lodge
Whaler's Cove Lodge is located on a beautiful secluded beach overlooking Killisnoo Harbor and the snow-clad mountains of Admiralty Island. The main lodge is the hub of activity. It serves as our dining and central social & recreational facility. Come enjoy the waterfront party deck and socialize with friends old and new while basking in the warmth of a one of a kind Alaskan fire pit.

All rooms capture a view of our harbor looking east over Admiralty Island National Monument. Each room is appointed with custom reclaimed burnt juniper log and cedar furniture. All rooms and cabins have electric heat and hot water, 24 hours a day. ADA accessible rooms and bathrooms are available!
