A successful bidder who traveled to Kodiak Raspberry Island Remote Lodge in September, 2011, says:

"What a beautiful place ... and since fish live in beautiful places, the fish were there! Our host and hostess were so gracious and made us all feel very welcome. Did I mention the food? Fabulous! After fishing, on the way back to the Lodge, we would stop to pick up the crab trap, then we would snack on freshly steamed crabs while watching someone clean all of our fish! Then up to the Lodge for appetizers and more wonderful food! Then we'd start the next day fishing, eating, etc. I highly recommend this place. I can't wait to go back!"
