How do I possibly write how much my stay at the Alaska Homestead Lodge meant to me without writing a book? I would begin with = the best possible place to view Grizzly Bears :) It is an absolutely beautiful lodge, tasteful decor, newly renovated, well kept up & to date, clean and most of all the warm friendly reception...

This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the wildness of Alaska while enjoying comfortable lodging, great food and friendly guides. There are two lodges that work together to provide guests with plenty of bear viewing opportunities. The scenery is beautiful and there is the opportunity to go clamming or fishing. Homestead's staff and location are first class. We spent two... More

We really wanted to see bears in their natural habitat and this was an outstanding experience. the people at the Homestead lodge were welcoming and the food was great. Michael, the chef, is very talented and could easily cook in a 5 star restaurant. Our guide was Bel and she knew just where to find the bears. there are 20-25... More

It took a while to get used to being that close to grizzly (brown) bears. But it seemed like the sows with their cubs wanted to be close to humans, not for dessert, but for protection from competing boars that try to kill the cubs or take the sow away from the cubs. 40 yards (the closest approach distance; a...

We booked a full day bear viewing tour with Alaska Homestead Lodge. We flew from Soldotna at 9 am and left the lodge at 5 PM. We were met by Don, our guide, when we landed on the beach. He started our tour immediately, since there were bears on the beach digging for clams. It was a wonderful start to... More

To be in the presence of Bears everyday is a privilege.I spent 7 days in this beautiful remote place photographing bears. This is magnificent country and really is the last frontier. The... More

There were 7 in our group. The sleeping accommodations were quite comfortable. They have 2 in house chefs and 2 guides for fishing and bear finding. The... More

Mike and I stayed here in early June 2014 for 3 nights. What an amazing opportunity to just begin to scratch the surface on bear behaviour. Our adventure started with a beach landing, followed by many trips on an ATV to get to bear viewing sights. It was early in the year but we still saw bears every day and... More
