Situated at the point where Idaho Inlet
merges with Icy Strait,
Gull Cove has provided a refuge for fishing boats and other travelers
for years. In 1936 Bill and Jenny Graham built their homestead at Gull Cove. They established the Gull Cove trading post and operated it for many years, catering to the needs of local fishermen. Preserves and
jams from locally picked berries, home made breads, and smoked fish were a big attraction at Gull Cove.
It was 1995 when Gull Cove Alaska lodge and first
appeared along the shore of Gull Cove on the north side of Chichagof
Island. After many years in Elfin Cove, Paul Johnson had a vision of a
remote lodge, tucked away in a protected cove, with a stunning view of
the Fairweather Range across Icy Strait. Now that vision is a reality
and Gull Cove is the starting point for daily adventures into the
waters of Icy Strait, Glacier Bay and beyond.
