Hosting visitors to Kachemak Bay State Park and Homer, Alaska since 1981 with many an unsolicited award and commendation. In fact, we've never had any reason to pursue any sort of commendation. They've always just come to us from anonymous sources. That's the real plus of visiting a lodge with a long and admired history of service and accommodation. We are no newcomers to this business and the reward to you is our continued (and proven) high standard of customer service, good times, and positive lifetime memories.

Located on a privately owned, remote beach inside Alaska's Kachemak Bay State Park, midway between the villages of Seldovia and Halibut Cove, and only 10 miles by boat from Homer, Alaska, the “Bear Viewing Capital of the World.” (and also the gateway town for the Kenai Fjords National Park, Lake Clark National Park, and Katmai National Park.) Sadie Cove is everything you have dreamed of and more.
Custom built in the mid 1970's from driftwood that was milled by hand, piece by piece, into lumber by owner/artist Keith Iverson and accessible only by boat, float plane, or helicopter, Sadie Cove Wilderness Lodge offers the visitor a unique opportunity to participate in Alaska's wilderness lifestyle in a genuine, year-round, Alaskan home and lodge. It has been said by many guests of Sadie Cove Lodge that few places on earth can match the natural, untouched wilderness setting and natural ecology of Sadie Cove. Built as a year-round home in 1973 and established as a full-fledged beachfront / ancient forest / ecologically conscious lodge in 1981, owners Keith and Randi Iverson invite you to celebrate over 4 decades of residency and nearly 4 decades of full-service lodgings in 2019.

The early Alaskans camped here seasonally to make stone tools and gather berries, clams, mussels, seals, and sea birds for their subsistence. This historic link was recognized by anthropologists who explored the bay in the 1940's searching for the middens and the cave paintings that are on what is now the lodge property. Today, to retain it's peaceful atmosphere, Sadie Cove Wilderness Lodge serves a small number of overnight guests only. Additional patrons are never brought in for meals, equipment rentals, the lodge's signature tours, or sales of any kind. With a small guest capacity and a non-commercial, homey atmosphere, you will have the time and space to feel comfortable and form new friendships. At Sadie Cove Wilderness Lodge you can surround yourself in wilderness, not tourists.

The Lodge is run completely on a non-polluting, alternative energy system of wind and hydro power which supply the entire grounds with energy to spare. The crystal clear mountain spring water is the purest on earth and may well be the most delicious, well oxygenated, and freshest natural water you have ever had the opportunity to drink.

Surrounding the Lodge are several trails and seacoast walks. There is a fleet of sea kayaks for you to explore the ocean waters with and at low tide you can see starfish, sea anemones, shells, and a tremendous variety of sea life from your kayak or by simply walking the beaches. The lodge staff will introduce you to sea otters, bald eagles, seals, whales, harbor porpoise, tiny eels, bears, mountain goats, and Alaska's unique birdlife and ancient forests.

The atmosphere is laid back, peaceful, and extraordinarily different from the buzz of everyday life - a great place for a wedding, a honeymoon, a holiday, a family reunion, or a long-needed rest.

Through the years, Sadie Cove Wilderness Lodge has attracted artists, writers, ecologists, conservationists, adventurers, and peace-seekers alike yearning to experience the beauty, friendship, service, and tranquility that can be found at this very special place.
