Hi! I'm Lila

As the innkeeper of Pioneer Inn, I have the pleasure of welcoming guests from all over the world to our beautiful corner of Alaska. My name is Lila, and I'm not just an innkeeper—I'm also a mom of four fun, energetic, and adventurous children: Sawyer (13), Wylder (12), Selma (8), and Ginny (3). Our family also includes a Chesapeake Bay Retriever named Louie, a cat named Oscar, and many chickens and fish.

A Life Full of Joy and Activity

In addition to my innkeeping duties, I'm a K-2 reading teacher here in Homer, Alaska. Balancing these roles keeps me busy, but I love every moment of it. When I'm not working, I cherish exploring the stunning Kenai Peninsula with my tribe of athletic friends. Endurance open-water swimming and marathon running are my passions, and I occasionally participate in triathlons.


Embracing the Alaskan Lifestyle

Growing up, I spent many summers deckhanding for my dad on his salmon gillnetters in Cook Inlet and Bristol Bay. Recently, I've taken up gardening and farming, raising vegetables, chickens, and pigs. I also enjoy canning and preserving the fruits of our labor, and during the winter months, I love to crochet hats and other items to keep us warm.
