This is an excellent opportunity for a husband/wife or father/son who wants to spend the summer in a beautiful remote Alaska location. There are less than 20 homes on Keyes Point, so there aren't a large number of property owners to deal with. Most weeks over the summer there are only two or three families on the Point at a time. The Association would like to find an applicant that would prefer to return as caretaker for several years. The caretaker will be responsible for their own food and supplies. It is about 180 miles to Anchorage by air. There are several commercial air taxi operators that service Keyes Point. They can be contacted by phone, fax or email. They will pickup groceries and supplies in Anchorage and deliver them to Keyes Point for a small fee. The Lake Clark area has fantastic fishing and is a beautiful area.
