What an amazing place Duane and Tracy have created! My husband loves Alaska and has been to several fishing lodges and always wanted me to go with him....I finally said I would go IF I could choose the lodge....I chose Dove Island and it was WONDERFUL! I do not have a single negative comment to make about this beautiful place! The food was amazing, cooked to order breakfast and 5 course gourmet dinners, served in a room with a view! The lodge itself is on an island, off the coast of Sitka and is nestled in the trees. Furnishings are beautiful and very appropriate for the setting! We had the Rainbow Trout suite.....it was very spacious and very pretty. Nicole keeps everything running smoothly and Chad, her husband, is a top notch guide! I am not a fisher person but I went fly fishing 2 days and saltwater fishing 2 days and had a great adventure each day! Chad was very helpful and took good care of me! My two favorite things about the trip were the float plane rides, which were awesome, and returning to the dock each day! Upon your return to the lodge each afternoon, the boat or plane guests were met at the dock with warm towels and hot chocolate, spiked with marshmallow vodka! YUMMY!
This was a wonderful adventure that I would highly recommend !
