The Lodge Features

The Ridgewood is arguably an architectural gem amongst wilderness lodges in Alaska, built by Kevin Sidelinger using timbers from the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, creating a building that complements the surrounding wilderness. The Ridgewood features 360 degree wrap-around decks with views of majestic mountains, including oceans, miles of beaches, secluded salt-water coves and estuaries, and manicured lawns and gardens surrounded by native Alaskan forest & vegetation.

We are eager to help you plan a tailor-made adventure for your family & friends.
