Bear Lake Lodgings is owned and operated by Dennis and Pat Perry, longtime Alaskans with diverse entrepreneurial interests, careers and experiences.
As a bush pilot, Dennis has seen parts of Alaska that few other people have ever experienced. A 20-year Alaska resident, Dennis believes that the state is unique among the places he's lived and visited because of its raw beauty and untamed nature. He currently makes his living as a psychologist, and regularly finds time for his favorite Alaskan activities—flying, fishing, hiking, skiing, and all-around adventuring.
Pat is the owner and operator of The Original Gourmet Ice Cream Bars, a business that has become iconic on the Alaska fair and festival circuits. She also has considerable expertise in home design and decorating, and personally created much of the custom-made objects found throughout the B&B.
