Brian and Katy Borchers have made their home on and off in Cooper Landing for the past 10 years. Shortly after their graduation from Alaska Pacific University in Anchorage, they began working for a local outfitter on the Kenai River and fell in love with the location and community. Management of select destination fly-fishing lodges took them to locations such as El Placer, Quintana Roo, Mexico and Kukaklek Lake, Katmai National Park, Alaska, but when the opportunity to manage Alaska Heavenly Lodge in Cooper Landing presented itself they grabbed it with both hands.
Katy grew up in the interior of Alaska, Delta Jct., and has traveled extensively throughout the state. However, she hasn't seen, and cannot imagine a place more beautiful than Cooper Landing! Brian always dreamed of traveling to Alaska, growing up in Fredericksburg, Virginia. They both enjoy fishing the Kenai River and it's tributaries, hiking the surrounding Chugach Mountains, and visiting with guests exchanging stories of adventure.
The Owner purchased this lodge in 2005
