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

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
