    Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge: One in 80

    Herb crusted halibut, Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge

    One of the lodge guests, Jon, had the good fortune of going out halibut fishing on a day that his fishing boat caught 80 halibut fish among four guests. What do you do with so many halibut? You donate some of them to the Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge where Nelda and Christy, with their fabulous culinary skills will whip up an extraordinarily delicious fish dish. This halibut was baked with a herb crust - to perfection!

    Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge: Fabulous 5-star Alaskan cuisine!

    Dining at Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge

    Nelda Osgood, owner of Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge, and her daughter, Christy, are the head and very accomplished chefs at Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge. Three meals were included with our stay, and they were always the highlights of the day. Breakfast and dinner were served family style around a large dining room table with floor to ceiling windows giving great views of the forests, mountains and inlets surrounding the lodge. One of our favorite activities at mealtime was watching the bald eagle family (2 parents and 2 chicks) that had made their nest in a nearby tree. Nelda and John, the owners, would jump up in the middle of dinner and focus the telescope on the nest so we could see the eagle chicks pop their heads out of the nest.

    Favorite Dish: So many meals were incredibly delicious - there was an herb crusted halibut, poached salmon, sea food pasta, delicious side dishes, incredible desserts. At breakfast we ate homemade granola and yogurt, homemade bran muffins, scones, egg dishes, omelets, pancakes, french toast. Lunch consisted of box lunches with delicious sandwiches (such as a salmon sandwich one day), fruit and homemade cookies. The best food we had in Alaska was at the Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge.

    This photo was taken in the dining room on our second evening. From left to right are my son Danny, Jon - our halibut fishing buddy, his wife Maddie, Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge owners Nelda and John Osgood, their friends and Homer residents Rick and Dottie, Karen, Greg and Melanie. We are feasting on a delicious poached salmon.

    Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge: All around the blueberry bush

    by karenincalifornia Updated Aug 8, 2005

    Tutka Bay blueberries, Alaska

    Blueberries are abundant throughout Alaska, and they are ripe in July and August. On our second day, we went out halibut fishing but came up empty handed. In the afternoon, my daughter and I wanted to salvage our egos by going after easier game - so we picked blueberries on the Mental Health land that borders the Tutka Bay Wilderness Lodge property.

    Wild blueberries taste very different from the kind you can purchase in a market. Wild blueberries are extremely tart, but packed with flavor. Add just a little sugar, and their intense sweet flavor is released.

    Favorite Dish: My daughter and I picked about 8 cups of blueberries and donated what we didn't eat to the lodge. That is the sort of thing you want to do at this lodge - the owners are so creative in preparing the dishes. You just can't wait to see how many ways they can cook with a blueberry. The lodge used our blueberries in an outstanding blueberry creme brulee, blueberry scones and blueberry pancakes. They were all delicious!
