In 1959 Joe and Elisabeth Aprill purchased this Kenai Peninsula property from one of the early Alaska homesteaders. They converted the small cabin into a cafe and built a motel, calling the business Aprill's Anchor View Apartments. Julie Egbert purchased the business in 1965 and renamed it the Anchor River Inn. Later, when she was joined in partnership and marriage by Bob Clutts, they replaced the old cabin with a much larger restaurant, bar and liquor store. When Julie passed away in 1982 the Inn incorporated with Bob Clutts serving as president. Bob eventually married Simonne and adopted her two sons. The Inn is now being operated by Bob and Simonne’s son Jesse and his wife Jennifer as they raise their five children. Since its incorporation the Inn has undergone many changes. The north side of the property, across the street from the restaurant, has been developed to include a year round liquor store and grocery store, and 10 modern motel rooms. A fitness center was added later for the benefit of motel guests and members of the community. While very little, if any, of the original homestead cabin remains, the staff at the Anchor River Inn remain as committed as ever to serving weary travelers, hard working Alaskans, and fishermen with traditional Anchor Point hospitality.
