Experience Sadie Cove Wilderness Eco-Lodge in Alaska

Alaska's Sadie Cove Wilderness Lodge is located on the beach where the mountains literally meet the sea in Kachemak Bay State Park, which is situated just across the bay from Homer, Alaska on the Kenai Peninsula in the southern part of the state.

Voted one of North America's top ten eco-resorts by Natural Home Magazine and one of Forbes Traveler's 10 best green hotels in the US, Sadie Cove offers visitors a wide variety of activities sure to suit even the most adventurous in spirit.

In fact, the wilderness lodge is located just minutes from the ''bear viewing capital of the world,'' which is Homer, Alaska, and lies between the charming villages of Seldovia and Halibut Cove.

Homer is also viewed as the gateway town for Kenai Fjords National Park, Lake Clark National Park and Katmai National Park.

For more than 30 years Sadie Cove has been a favorite destination among wilderness junkies, with structures that were constructed using lumber that was hand milled by owner and artist Keith Iverson.

Accessible only by boat, helicopter or float plane, the lodge gives visitors a firsthand glimpse into backcountry living among Alaska's vast wilderness.

The untouched beauty of the nearby parks is renowned throughout the world and offers access to a stunning array of ecological variety.

Originally constructed in 1973 to be a full-time residence, Sadie Cove, the lodge has been open to guests since 1981 and is operated using an eco-friendly system of alternative energy, including wind and hydro power that regularly creates more energy than the property needs.

Activities to consider while visiting the Sadie Cove Wilderness Lodge include bear watching, whale watching, hiking, wildlife photography, sea kayaking, river rafting, fishing and flightseeing. Kayaks and fishing gear are provided for guests free of charge, as is access to a fabulous sauna, beach bonfires and hammocks.
