Rustic Lodging at its BEST!

I grew up in Oregon and as many people do, I dreamed of coming to Alaska.   Several years ago I just decided to pack up and move to Alaska.  I loved Alaska so much I want to share the experience with others. 

Well here I am now, living my dream, building a log cabin deep in the woods off the beaten path. I don't hear the sounds of cars and have the view of a lifetime.

We are only minutes away from Cook Inlet where the halibut are abundant and even closer to world renown salmon fishing streams and rivers. The Anchor River, Ninilchik River, and Deep Creek are just a few miles away.  

About an hour drive north runs the famous Kenai River where the worlds largest king salmon are caught.

Homer, Alaska - Halibut Capitol of the world, is just twenty-five minutes to the south. Halibut season starts late April to early May and runs through August

If its clam digging you like, there are great opportunities on the nearby beaches. 

Deep Creek, just up the road, and Clam Gulch, about twenty-five minutes north are some of the best anywhere. There are closer beaches you can dig as well. 

 The lodge has 4 fully furnished bedrooms.  Three of the rooms will sleep four people in each. The 4th Room (Snow Shoe Room) will sleep six and has a large sunroom overlooking the Alaska Range mountains. All four rooms have full bathrooms with showers. A community kitchen is available to all of our guests.

A nice place to park or camp for the night, week, or.. ?  You get the picture!
