Having just returned from another trip to Elfin Cove for some great fishing thought I'd share it with all of you. Elfin cove is located 80 miles west of Juneau only by boat or float plane. There is a wonderful history of pirates etc. in days gone by which makes it all the more intriquing. This village exsists primarily on fishing excursions. There are very few lodges in the village. Our lodge 'The Inner Harbor Lodge" only hosts eight people at a time. This,of course, makes for a wonderful host/client relationship. Actually from day one you become family. The rooms,which are not spartan, each have their own bath and are treated each day as any hotel room would be. You may want to bring your own special toiletries since stores in the village are not very stocked. However any store will open for you at any time. Very informal.
The meals; which are served family style in an airy scenic dining room over looking the bay, are delicious and plentiful and varied.
Breakfast and dinner are served; lunch is "make your own" from a table laden with sandwich makings and soda and chips and cookies. You will not hunger.There is not a night life in town since there is only one small bar/cafe. Your free time will be spent watching the bald eagles circle, the sun trying to set(long days) or playing string instruments and singing with the host family. There is a TV in the mail living room and a phone in the kichen.
The scenery is Alaskan and beyond description. The days on the water are exillerating and full of adventures with whales and other ocean life and if you are there to fish you will not be disappointed.
