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

Homestead Lodge Lake Clark Alaska is beyond fantastic. The Lodge is spotless and the meals are amazing. Few places go above and beyond but Homestead Lodge is exceptional. 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

This past September my husband and I made our fifth trip to visit Alaska and as wonderful as every trip has been (reason we kept going back) this one topped them all due to our three day/night stay at Alaska Homestead Lodge. Our stay allowed us to connect with the awesomeness of Nature while staying and being pampered in the... More

We spent 5 days at Homestead Lodge in Lake Clarke Alaska. We went there to see and photograph Alaska Brown Bears. The lodge is a log cabin style house that holds 7-10 guests. 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

The Alaska Homestead Lodge was the perfect way to complete a wonderful Alaskan holiday. The bear viewing was fantastic as you can get much closer than you would ever imagine, even with the cubs. Shelia, James, the guides and all the staff were extremely welcoming and could not have done more to ensure our stay was brilliant. I would definitely... More
