Confirmed guesses at Sadie Cove Wilderness Lodge will be required to present an official CDC confirmation card showing completed Covid-19 vaccinations before being admitted to their water taxi to Sadie Cove and also upon arrival at the lodge. Guests without this card will not be allowed to remain on the premises and will not receive any refunds for their payments due to the high contractability of Covid-19. We do this for your safety as well as the safety of our staff and ourselves. Masks will also be required to be worn properly according to CDC recommendations at all times on lodge grounds, cabins, water taxi, and on optional guided charters. Stay well and cautious.
And one intangible that is included in the cost of your
Sadie Cove was built by hand with driftwood salvaged from the beaches of Kachemak Bay over the last 40 years. It was then milled by hand and put in place in it's natural state without preservatives, oils, or chemicals of any kind. One day, when Keith and Randi Iverson are gone and buried up the mountain in their favorite spot, the lodge will return to the earth as do fallen trees in a virgin forest. All that will be left to clean up will be some nails, roofing materials, and hand tools and we sincerely hope that these will be re-used by the next adventurer carving out his place on the wild Kenai Coast.
Parties of 6 or more get the entire lodge to themselves so make your reservations early in order to enjoy our special place.
