Owner:Eric and Shan
The beginnings of the company for Eric and Shan and their four children began in 1983. Eric, a lifetime Alaskan, had been a General Contractor and part-time Alaskan hunting guide since his graduation from high school in 1969. Shan was born in Washington State and moved to Alaska in 1962 with her mother and step father. She has lived here ever since except for summer visits to her dads in Washington when she was younger. Eric and Shan met in 1970 and were married in 1973.We had our own plane, varying in size as the family grew, always venturing out into Alaska’s wilderness for fishing, hunting, and camping. We bought some land on a lake in the late 70’s and built a cabin. At first, we were the only cabin on the lake, but after a few years the surrounding land was open by the state for public purchase. By this time we had upgraded to a Cessna 180 in order to have room for our two kids, Brent and Tyson. We had always left our cabin unlocked in case someone was in need of shelter, but people began abusing that generosity including the local bear population. We sold the cabin in 1982 and began our search for another getaway location. The fabulous Northwoods Lodge started life as a tent in the wilderness. During Eric’s many years of flying and fishing the area where Northwoods Lodge was built, he had spotted this piece of land and fell in love with it. He contacted the State Land office and obtained the name of the owner in Oregon. Made contact with him and (it must of been meant to be) he had just put the land on the market with a local real estate company. We bought the scenic location and spent our summer weekends of 1983 in a white wall tent, clearing a place for the cabin.
