“The Lodge surrounded by
Kachemak Bay State Park”
In hand crafted cabins, visitors to Alaska's
Sadie Cove Wilderness Lodge are transported to a place where the troubles of
the outside world fall away like leaves in the wind. Reminiscent of the
bygone Viking era with details so often seen in the Norwegian countryside,
construction of the lodge has been an ongoing labor of love for
owners/founders Keith and Randi Iverson. Each building is unique, and
comfortable, with stunning views of Sadie Cove and far off Mt. Augustine
(One of the few active volcanoes in the USA). To the East of the
lodge, around the bend, are 3 rarely used but picturesque summer cabins. From
the lodge and throughout the remainder of the extensive view, you will see
no other man-made objects as we are one of the very few pieces of private
property inside the State Park.

electricity is provided by an in-house hydroelectric
system operating from a clear and swift stream which tumbles
down the mountains from the high snowy peaks of Sadie
Cove. Self-sustaining and independent,
the lodge is completely off the "grid".
Lodge guests (no more than 10) are housed in
5 handcrafted private
cabins. Wonderful meals are served in the dining room and on the outer deck. A cozy, spacious lounge is available to
guests for reading, gaming, visiting, or just relaxing and enjoying

As our world becomes increasingly technological, we have
come to feel a need for those rare places which retain their natural
beauty and individuality. Visiting Sadie Cove is its own reward in
that respect and still there are those special touches and small
details which remind us of days when the words
and "personality" and "character" had deeper meaning. Sadie
Cove Lodge is not like any other place you have ever been and, being in
the wilderness, it is definitely not predictable. Visiting this lodge
can easily be a lifelong highlight for those who seek adventure and a
place that is pleasantly apart from the "norm.".
Uncrowded except for a night sky glittering with stars and,
on special occasions, the Northern Lights, Sadie Cove Wilderness Lodge
offers you several cozy cabins to suit the tastes of the adventurer
and the romantic alike.
from the unimaginative cookie cutter resorts so often seen these days, when you
awaken at Sadie Cove there is no doubt that you are in a special place
creatively and ingeniously designed to survive Alaska's harsh winters
and bask in Alaska's warm summers.
Sadie Cove is a unique wilderness sanctuary where a person can
personally recharge in absolute comfort.
Warm, calm, Sadie Cove

Organic architecture has helped the lodge buildings to blend into
the environment and become an integral part of the vista. With a
reputation for tidiness, comfort, and good companionship, you can't get much closer to nature than a peaceful yet
at Sadie Cove.
What to expect - Private Lodge cabins are not so much posh as
they are practical. They are super-comfortable, but not opulent, and the
lodge itself is not a sterilized, sanitized,
/ Las Vegas
fantasy hotel experience. Sadie Cove is a hand-built,
small, Wilderness Lodge - full of comfort, raw natural wood,
character, wilderness, good company, and adventures. It is a year-round
home and full-service lodge that was cut out of the beach and the wildland of Alaska totally by hand, beginning in 1972 when Kachemak Bay
pioneer Keith Iverson first landed on the beach in his Klepper Kayak.
