We are Andrea and Jeremy Anderson. In the spring of 2016, we purchased Silvertip Lodge and Cabins from Dean and Mary Talley, who built the first cabin in 1999. The summer of 2024 will be our 9th season of operation at Silvertip & we are excited to have you stay in our cabins.
Andrea grew up in California but fell in love with Alaska after visiting her grandparents in Cooper Landing. After graduating college in 2004, she moved up to Cooper Landing and worked in nearby Moose Pass. Jeremy grew up in Wisconsin, and in 2001 he spent his first summer in Alaska working at the Russian River Campground. Jeremy spent the next few years working as a rafting guide on the Upper Kenai River. In July 2004, Andrea and Jeremy met and began a great adventure on the Kenai Peninsula.
Over the past 18 years, Andrea and Jeremy have developed a diverse set of skills in the Alaskan tourism industry and spend lots of time recreating outdoors. Andrea has worked as a guide for several rafting companies, ran a fishing lodge, and currently manages reservations, logistics, and accounting for Alaska Drift Away Fishing. Jeremy is co-owner of Alaska Drift Away Fishing and guides on the river for trout and salmon.
Our years in the industry have helped us develop sustainable tourism practices that preserve our natural environment and natural resources, minimize waste, and support our fellow local business owners. We are committed to creating better practices in all aspects of our business. Our motivation is helping create an even better Alaska for our 3 kids and generations to come.
Our experience and the industry relationships we have developed over the years will make your vacation to Alaska an enjoyable and hassle-free trip. We partner with local quality guides and outfitters and recommend trips that we enjoy ourselves. We want you to enjoy everything Alaska has to offer, while staying in comfortable, clean cabins that make you feel like you are at home. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our lodge with you and yours.
