We really enjoy opening up our home and lodge to guests making your experience extraordinary in every way from the activities, exceptional food to very comfortable accommodations. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our unique lifestyle with you.
Shelia came to Alaska from Southern California; just a slight climate and atmosphere change! Marrying James prompted the big move for her. Shelia lived in Southern California for most of her life and her background is in sales, marketing and business administration. She has a great love for nature and the outdoors along with decorating, quilting, cooking and doing all the domestic things.
James was born and raised in Alaska and has tremendous insight and stories to share, many of which stem from his love of flying. James started flying at the age of 16 and enjoys being a bush pilot flying a J3 Piper Cub and Cessna 182. James has proven ability and talent as a craftsman. You will appreciate his work first hand because he renovated the original homestead into the now even more beautiful Alaska Homestead Lodge. You’ll enjoy getting to know James firsthand. Together Shelia and James enjoy opening the lodge to people who want to escape from the pressures and demands of life to a place of spectacular beauty, peace, relaxation and fun.
“Guests often comment and thank us for making them feel apart of our family, as we take time to enjoy meals together and share the many stories of the bears to Homesteader, Joe Munger and the logistics of living in the Alaskan bush.”
“The best part for us is meeting people from all over the world, getting to know them and seeing the thrill and excitement as they experience a piece of Alaska’s paradise."
They look forward to meeting you and your expectations during your Alaskan adventure.
