Alaska Fishing Lodges | Setting the Bar at Elfin Cove Resort

You don’t have to be an avid angler to know that Southeast Alaska offers unrivaled fishing opportunities. Heck, even people who haven’t wet a line more than a handful of times will tell you that the “Last Frontier” is a popular destination for anyone seeking an unforgettable fishing adventure. The blessing of such productive waters goes hand in hand with having a wide range of Alaska fishing lodges to compare and contrast. And we’ll be the first ones to say there are plenty of good resorts and guides to select from, but if you want something that offers a genuine Alaskan experience, then it’s good you’re checking out Elfin Cove Resort.


We’re confident that our newly renovated all-inclusive resort with four separate buildings will exceed your Alaska lodging expectations. Every guest room has a private bathroom, and you can find awe-inspiring vistas exemplified by glacial and mountain views greeting you to begin each day. Our main building is home to our kitchen, dining and common area, and five guest rooms. Next, the chalet features two bedrooms, a cozy living room, and a private deck. One of the most popular options, the beach house, has three rooms and a family room. And finally, the former Fishmasters Inn is now a rustically elegant four-story cedar lodge with six rooms, kitchen, dining area, family room, and wrap-around decks. Although we’re in a remote location, you won’t exactly be “roughing it.”


When deciding between Alaska fishing lodges, you’ll want a place that has a little bit of everything. Whether you choose to spend all day angling—or when you aren’t fishing, immersing yourself in an abundance of wilderness with other activities, there is no such thing as boredom at Elfin Cove. From soaking in hot springs to ziplining above the forest canopy, we keep everyone in mind when providing a full spectrum of adventure. Here are three examples of what you can do to pass the time when you aren’t fishing during your trip: 

  • Wildlife viewing is easily one of the most popular reasons people travel to Alaska, and there are plenty of opportunities to do so at Elfin Cove. Bald eagles, brown bears, sea lions, and whales are just some of the native fauna you can expect to see.
  • Kayaking in Alaska is one thing; doing so next to a magnificent glacier isn’t nearly as common. Glacier Bay National Park is a must-stop destination for kayakers and other outdoor enthusiasts.
  • Hiking in Tongass National Forest is a bucket-list item for any seasoned hiker wishing to trek beneath the trees of the nation’s most expansive rainforest. The Tongass National Forest is also an excellent place to take photos.


It shouldn’t take long to realize we offer much more than elite fishing guides at Elfin Cove Resort. For nearly 30 years, we’ve put a valiant effort into separating ourselves from the other Alaska fishing lodges, and we’d like to share the fruits of our labor with you. With an experienced staff that takes pride in giving you an unforgettable experience every time, everything else is icing on the cake.
