We are an off the grid wilderness lodge located on Saltery Lake, which is on Kodiak Island, Alaska. We are a 20 minute flight from the City of Kodiak in the lodge's floatplane.

We have an average of 8 guests at a time that come in for week long trips, fly fishing for salmon on the rivers near the lodge. You will be working alongside 2 fishing guides and the chef.

General help is needed, mostly in the kitchen, and housekeeping duties, (changing out the guest rooms) every morning. Other duties will include, dish washing and friendly interaction with guests.

And.. yes.. although remote, we do have Wi-Fi in the lodge.

For the 2020 season you would be in the lodge from:

1st shift- Early July through the 1st or 2nd week in August. (4-6 weeks)


2nd shift - 3rd week of August through the end of September (6 weeks)

Each helper will get their own private room inside the main lodge.

The guests leave tips for housekeeping when they depart each week so you will have some compensation. :)

We strive for a fun environment with a good mix of lodge help and free time in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I hope you can be a part of our team.
