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

We spent just one night here, and while this one night cost half of my overall budget for 9 days in Alaska, it was well worth it. When I plane from Soldotna landed on what the pilot called the airport (it was the beach), we were greeted by Chris, who would be our guide for the next day. He picked... More

We spent 5 nights here in August for a bear photo shoot. The residence is really charming with lots of antiques and comfortable furniture. Our room was quiet and comfortable. It was the Bear's Den Room. Tom the chief was outstanding especially the halibut freshly caught. They take you on a atv for bear watching. We started at 6:00am. We... More

We spent two days at the Alaska Homestead Lodge. We have to say, it was the biggest highlight among many for our trip. We had an amazing guide, Chris, and the supporting staff were just as awesome. In truth, the weather turned bad the evening we were to leave and we quietly wished to not be able to fly out!!... More

I've hoped to see bears many times in my trips to Yosemite and Yellowstone, but never been lucky. This time I didn't want to miss. Thinked about a day tour, but decided to live the experience at its fullest and stay a couple of days in a lonely settings, way far from tourists flowings. Alaska Homestead lodge has been a... More

My husband and I were in Alaska in mid-July 2013 for two weeks and we spent two days here. It was the best two days of our whole vacation!! We landed on the beach and within five minutes we saw our first bear!! James and Shelia are great hosts and make you very welcome and comfortable in their lodge. The... More

My wife and I visited the lodge in August 2011 and had a fantastic time. We decided to return again in early July 2013 to experience it earlier in the season. There were plenty of bears to be seen, but we especially enjoyed the two mother bears, each with a pair of baby cubs, who spent lots of time playing... More

Our hosts met us as we got off the bush plane on the beach and drove us a short distance in ATV wagons to the lodge. Shortly after settling in we had our first bear spotting as one crossed the field in front of the lodge. The staff was friendly and helpful. The lodge is wonderful, comfy lounge areas, beautiful...
