Intricate Bay Lodge - The Comeback
1 Year After Disaster, Intricate Bay Lodge is rebuilt and ready for fishing in 2015
After a devastating fire consumed Intricate Bay Lodge a year ago, the eight owners decided to lick their wounds and go for the impossible: design, fabricate, ship and build a new replacement in a single year.
"We knew rebuilding off the grid in just one year would be a huge challenge, especially in this remote part of Alaska, but we were lucky enough to find a great collaborator who could fulfill our wish list", said Brian Harry, owner and manager of Intricate Bay Lodge.
The reincarnated lodge, erected on the same location, incorporates dozens of improvements suggested through the accumulated knowledge of many fishing expeditions. Guests will have spectacular views of Lake Iliamna, short boat or float plane rides to Alaska's unparalleled fishing, meals from the new gourmet kitchen, and a new hot tub to relax muscles worn from handling large fish.
"Since this is a small-scale, remote, off-the-grid, commercial fly fishing lodge in Alaska, every design choice was critical – driving cost, functionality and the business model itself," explains Harry.
"We are very grateful to the community for their help and support throughout this process. We're updating our IntricateBayLodge.com site, and are once again booking reservations. The lodge will operate for years and years to come, giving hundreds of people a dream-vacation experience in a very special place."
Introducing the New Intricate Bay Lodge
Amenities and Aesthetics
The lodge has 4 comfortably carpeted bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, one queen and one full bed. An additional 5th bedroom with private bath can accommodate extra guests. The hickory hardwood floors and pine walls and ceilings give the lodge a rustic feel. The heated mud room will ensure wadering up will be comfortable and your gear will be dry for your next adventure.
Warm, Cozy, Elegant
New construction brings advances in technology. The lodge was insulated above and beyond any code requirements. The combination of a walk around fire place and forced air will ensure a warm and cozy environment for unwinding after a great day on the water. Sparing no expense in the design, the lodge provides a unique first class experience not normally associated with remote Alaska. Surround sound, wifi, and satellite TV provide modern conveniences and connectivity.
Hot Appetizers and Cold Drinks
Enjoy hot tasty treats and drinks at our custom bar during cocktail hour. Bar includes comfortable chairs, a flat screen TV, darts and views to dream about.
After a long day on the water, relax and soak up the views, laughter, and fish stories. Our wood fired, jet powered hot tub will enhance your next Alaskan Adventure. Wading rivers, casting your fly rod and fighting large fish of various species can tire those muscles. Take a dip and rejuvenate your body preparing for the next day.
