A quick boat ride from the Sitka Harbor and you're transported to luxury accommodations and 5-star cuisine. A private island available to stay or just for lunch. While the guests are out fishing every day, the lodge hosts a gourmet lunch for @ 40 diners. The chef is innovative and uses the freshest local ingredients available. The meal was colorful, well prepared and the perfect Alaska experience. The lodge is beautiful with fireplaces, a bar and long table dining. Such an authentic feel. Highly recommended.

This all inclusive lodge in Sitka is located on a small island in a sheltered bay, a ten minute boat ride from the dock in Sitka. It features very comfortable accommodations with decor appropriate for the area, world class gourmet dinners prepared by two chefs, great fishing for salmon, halibut, rock fish, ling cod, etc. The fishing was great. All fishing gear, boat with a very experienced captain who knows the surrounding waters very well, and fishing clothing and boots were included. We limited out on king salmon, rock fish, and halibut every day of our three day stay. The staff is very helpful, warm, friendly and eager to assist. The scenery is breathtaking! Snow capped mountains are viewed across the small inlet on one side and island dot the bay on the other. We saw sea lions and whales while fishing, and the lodge has many bald eagles flying around it. We were well taken care of from the time we arrived at the Sitka airport until we were checked in for our return flight. Each suite has a bathroom and a sitting room; the two cabins have two bedrooms. Very clean and well maintained. All have great views. The lodge is the only facility on the five or so acre Dove Island, which is owned by the owner of the lodge. A separate sauna is available, and a spa is under construction. A very well stocked bar in available in the great room as well in the area where the boat docks after a day of fishing. Both feature great views. The lodge owner owns and operates a vineyard in Napa, needless to say this is a great place for a wine connoisseur. Truly a world class lodge with world class, exceptional service. We will be back next year.

Room Tip: All rooms are outstanding.

We came to Dove Island with another couple for fishing and adventure. Boy did we get that and more. From the moment you arrive at the island you are treated extremely well.
The food is fantastic as is the staff. Our fishing and adventures were over the top.

We came to Dove Island with another couple, our plan was to have an epic Alaskan vacation and that was exactly what we got! I would give them extra stars for the food if I could. Both chefs are extremely accomplished, and showed off their talents every evening. The owners and staff work really hard to accommodate every single guest. They are friendly and eager to help out any way they can. They orchestrate daily fishing trips, both salt and freshwater, like true professionals. Whether you are an experienced fisherman or a novice, the guides at Dove Island bend over backwards to make your experience special. And if you just want to "chill" the lodge is both beautiful and comfortable. There are jacuzzis, a sauna, a cute little bar with a patio, I could go on and on. The views are spectacular. They are also happy to plan a trip to town to see the Sitka sights if that is what want. Most of the other guests were returning to the lodge for 2nd or 3rd time, I can understand why. Dove Island Lodge is Five Star in every way.

I have been fortunate to be able to call this my second trip to this great location. It is first class from the moment you picked up at the airport until you take him back to the airport. The staff does anything and everything to accommodate it's guests. The food and the fishing is just as good as the hospitality exclamation point
