Carrol and JoAnne Martin came to Alaska as newlyweds in 1963, first to Southeast Alaska and then to their dream location on the Kenai Peninsula in 1975. In 1997 they began building what is now Diamond M Ranch Resort from raw land with one of their children and his wife. Blair and Ronna Martin, son and daughter-in-law, were both raised in this great state and are now raising their own family of third-generation Alaskans. The Martin’s have roots that run deep in hospitality, ranching, and good old-fashioned family fun. Active in their local community, they run their working ranch alongside their award-winning RV Park, awe-inspiring suites carefully modeled after historic Gold Rush era buildings, and a few unique cabins, for a variety of different accommodations to meet your needs.
In 2012, the Martin Family was voted Alaska Farm Family of the Year! Read more here.
