We love Prince William Sound! In our pursuit to spend more time in the Sound we developed Port Ashton Lodge a cabin rental and full service lodge. Located on the 1918 Port Ashton Saltery site, our retreat includes rustic log cabins and a Beach House that overlook Sawmill Bay.

The Talvis are four family partners in Port Ashton Lodge. Randy, Lia and their children, Myles, Tristan and Tasha live in Alaska. Randy is a life long Alaskan who has grown up living one adventure after another in Alaska’s outdoors. He has over 30 years of expertise navigating the rivers and oceans of Alaska. His background as a fisheries biologist, commercial fisherman, wrestling coach and teacher will be used to help entertain and guide you during your vacation. Lia enjoys sewing, cooking, hiking and fishing. She has over 20 years experience working with people in the hotel and food industry. She will make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Her expertise cooking seafood and desserts will keep you coming back for more. Myles is our fishing enthusiast. He loves to fish and enjoys sharing his fishing secrets. Tristan is our naturalist. He loves to talk about all of the local plants and marine life. Our youngest child, Tasha, is our artist and cleans cabins with her mom. All of the Talvis enjoy living and sharing their experiences at Port Ashton Lodge.

Paige and Russ grew up in Alaska. Although they moved to Kauai, Hawaii, in 1990, their love of Alaska has never diminished. Because of this they moved back to the city, Fairbanks, Alaska, that they had grown up in.  All of their family enjoy experiencing the vastness and beauty that only Alaska can offer. Paige loves to fish and quilt. Russ enjoys the quiet sanctuary of our remote Alaskan lodge and Russ, Paige, and their children, Bjorn, Erik, Katy, and Kristofer have all helped with the planning and building of the lodge. On Kauai they owned and operated an exquisite restaurant, 22 N (www.22northkauai.com) at Kilohana. Their unique concept was to harvest locally grown and sustainable food. We put their hospitality experience to use at the lodge to ensure you have a memorable and tasteful stay with us.

Only there one night in preparation for our 5 day kayak adventure paddling back towards Whittier, my clients celebrated their wedding anniversary enjoying your hospitality and the saltwater hot tub on the beach. Looking forward to sending more kayakers to enjoy YOUR special place in Prince William Sound. Really loved learning more about the history of Port Ashton. Thanks! Perry – SOUND PADDLER
