“Fishing at it's finest!”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

First class accomodations with a visual setting to die for! The staff is as good as it's accomodations. Fishing is off the hook! The total package for a fisherman's paradise. Every year i am patiently awaiting to return to Talon, to pick up where i left off from the year before!

Just returned from another stay at Talon. Fishing is great in Sitka and the new catamaran hull boat is really nice. The owners continue to improve the facilities each year. The food and staff are just terrific.
This place defines “luxury” fishing in Alaska.

My first time to Alaska, the Talon Lodge was outstanding. The lodge made me feel like I was in Lake Tahoe, the fishing experience was one for the books. The facility, staff, food, scenery was over the top. Like nothing else I have ever experienced all in one place and at the same time. We saw bald eagles, whales, dolphin, sea lions, bear. We caught wild King Salmon and Alaskan Halibut. I would recommend this lodge and fishing trip to anyone. My buddy and I were treated to an unexpected surprise.... Celebrity Chef Sam Choi was a guest of the owners and he cooked our meals and fished with us. His food was outstanding and he is a fun person to be around. A very generous and friendly gentleman. The owner's Gwen and Phil make sure you feel at home in their home. Their staff didn't treat us like guests, but as long time friends.

Room Tip: Rooms are assigned by staff based upon the guests. Don't think there is a bad room on the islan...

Second time at resort. This time with family. Fabulous time. Staff 5 star. You can tell they love what they do and enjoy working for Phil and Gwen. We had the pleasure of having Hawaii's Legendary Sam Choy as our guests chef. What a pleasure to meet and spend some time with a true legend. Food was fantastic. Staff Chefs were fantastic. We all caught our limits every day and came back with 50 lbs of salmon and halibut each. 300 lbs of filets in 3 days Megan was the perfect organizer. Worth every penny.

Talon Lodge is Rock Star! The incredible Fishing and Scenery are only second to the Food, Service and Staff. The nightly entertainment of 10-12 Eagles feeding on halibut is something everyone should see...The Youngers really have it going on, right down to the "Wine dinners" and fire pits on a chilly night, which there were a few.

Hard to believe a fishing "lodge" could be so much like a privste resort. I spent my fishing trip at the lodge with my two sons, mother and father! The sights were amazing with bald eagles sharing overhead, whale just off shore and salmon from the dock who could ask former?
Did I mention the fishing? We had a blast! Salmon, halibut, rock fish and more- we had three amazing days. The crew helped us bait the lines and coached us when needed. Loads of great fishing translated to loads of good fish to take home and share with family and friends.
Food was never better. Gourmet dinners each night served night where shared our stories from the days adventure. Good food, good wines and lot of laughs capped off each day.
We will be back this summer to enjoy the adventure all over again
Can't wait!!!

Talon Lodge was an incredible and amazing place. My three sons and father-in-law experienced magnificent service and the accomodations were perfect. The food was tremendous and was only topped by the quality of the service we received every minute we were there. I am not sure how Phil and Gwen get the passionate commitment to customer service out of their team, but they do. The fishing - bar none - superb and unmatched. Not only is fishing in this area breathtaking, the catch was better than I imagined it could be. It was fun, exciting and trip of a lifetime. I say that, but everyone wants to go back and do it again. That is how good it was. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the trip to Talon Lodge and would recommend to anyone who asks.
