Beautiful location, excellent service
Had the most amazing wedding ceremony and reception at Viking Cove! We asked to have our wedding at the edge of the woods, and Kim found the perfect spot to give us the feeling of being deep in the forest, but with plenty of space for our sound system to be set up and for everyone to sit comfortably (including some elderly relatives). We had photo shoots in on the beach, in the woods, and with those gorgeous mountains in the background - it’s impossible to take a bad picture! All the guests had a wonderful time, and the barn was perfect for the reception, plenty of room to dance and set up the decor we wanted. Highly recommended, it was unforgettable!Sent on 02/27/2020

Beautiful wedding venue & stay
My husband and I had our wedding here in June of 2017 with about 40 guests. The setting is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The weather was not cooperative (it snowed up on the pass!), so even though we had our ceremony on the beach, we ended up having our dinner and party mostly indoors, and it was really nice that this was an option. Kim was so friendly and helpful but also gave us our space and privacy, which was perfect. We had the best rehearsal dinner in the house, she cooked the food and was the BEST hostess. We HIGHLY recommend Viking Cove!!Sent on 03/24/2020
Viking Cove's reply:Susie, it was a pleasure to have your friends and family there. Such a lovely group of people and a perfect Alaska wedding!
