Orca Lodge is blessed to be located in a place that allows our guests to enjoy both the conveniences of being very close to town, as well as the true "Alaska feel" in a natural setting on the banks of the Kenai river.
Being at river mile 20 puts you right in the middle of prime fishing territory, but missing the major traffic that comes along with the extreme lower section of the Kenai. The general location of Soldotna is also the perfect location for your Alaska vacation due to its proximity to so many different attractions. Here in Soldotna you're only a short drive from Sterling, Cooper Landing, Homer, Ninilchik, Anchor Point, and Seward. Orca Lodge is the perfect home base for your Alaska vacation for so many reasons!
Orca Lodge guests enjoy about 500 feet of private riverfront access! A short set of stairs lead down to a platform dock and a long stretch of river for you to fish from. We regularly catch all 4 species of Salmon (sockeye, king, silver, and pink) that run the Kenai here, as well as Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden right in front of your cabin! And don't worry about bringing a bunch of gear because our gear cabin is fully stocked with hip boots, fishing rods, and the tackle that you'll need to be successful fishing here. If you're lucky enough to fill the stringer, feel free to use our aluminum fish cleaning station yourself, or ask for help and we'll be happy to fillet your catch for you.
The downstairs area of your hand crafted log cabin includes a full kitchen, a small dining area, a full bathroom, a queen bed, and a twin sleeper sofa. A stylish and efficient ship ladder leads up to a small loft area, which includes a double bed as well as a twin bed. The efficient layout of each cabin is able to accommodate small families and even up to 5 adults as the cabins at Orca aim to make the most of their 16x20 footprint. The cabins are fully stocked with all the things you'll need during your stay including dinnerware, pots, pans, linens, towels, etc.
Do you have a large family or group? Ask about a discount for booking multiple cabins, or maybe our larger upgraded Orca Cabin will be perfect for your party?
Despite the exceptional attributes of our riverfront cabins, the campfire area is undoubtedly our guest's most favorite feature of Orca Lodge. The campfire area features a campfire ring with benches, tables to enjoy a meal, firewood fully stocked, 2 gas grills, and of course it's all set overlooking the river. After a long day of fishing or sight-seeing, the campfire area is the perfect place to relax and re-live the experiences you had both with loved ones as well as other guests.
The office at Orca Lodge is centrally located on the property, and this is where you'll check in and meet our staff, who will be a huge resource for you during your stay. We want your stay to be as perfect as possible, so if you need anything at all please stop by the office and we'll meet your needs. Are you looking for guided trips? If so, our staff will get you set up!
