About Us

We moved to Alaska in 1978 from Colorado.  We both have always loved the outdoors and that is why we moved here. 

We have been blessed with many wonderful Alaskan experiences. We commercial fished for red salmon at a set net site for 20 years.  For 5 years we lived remotely on the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge at the Moose Research Center.

We have reached a time in our lives where we want to offer hospitality so others can experience the wonders and beauty of Alaska. We support and offer a tobacco and substance free environment.  We provide a healthy environment for those that want a lifestyle free of intoxicants.

There is so much to see and do.  Although we love to fish, we believe Alaska offers so much more. The local Alaska Native Culture is rich and the history of this area is a story that we suggest you hear and learn about. At our Inn you are in a central location to visit local areas, as well as Homer, Seward, Anchor Point, Cooper Landing, and Deep Creek.   

Deb Shuey


Deb is managing our Inn.  This is a new adventure in some ways, but she in not new to working at a lodge and hosting small and large events.  She worked at a remote fishing lodge and loved every minute.  She loves to have friends over for dinner and conversation.  Deb graduated from Mesa State University.  With her nursing degree she has worked in community and public health settings.  She has over 20 years working with Tribal Head Start programs.  She currently owns her own early childhood consulting business, Lighthouse Consultation Services, and is a Facilitator for the Virtue's Project.  She is very active in community events and sits on the Board of Directors for Central Peninsula Hospital.  There is always something to do and she is never idle.

Curt Shuey


Curt is the reason Deb came to Alaska.  He graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in wildlife biology and always wanted to live in Alaska,  so they moved right out of college to Anchorage.  The first 2 years in Alaska they lived at Wood River Lodge in the Tikchik Lake-Wood River Park and loved the adventure.   Curt currently works for the Kenaitze Indian Tribe as their Tribal Talking Circle Coordinator.  Since retiring from commercial fishing, he and Deb spend as much time as they can hiking, biking, camping, and fishing.  In the winter they love to cross country ski. Curt keeps everything running smoothly at our Inn.
