Perfect....that sums it up! We had planned a two week Alaskan vacation beginning in Homer. We were looking for a place north of Anchorage, yet not too far from from the airport.
We found The Hermitages and thought it looked ideal. We were not disappointed. It was even better than the description. The main cabin is beautiful with all kinds of artwork. The kitchen is perfect for cooking......it is better equipped than my kitchen! Upstairs is a large bedroom with its own living area and TV. The bathroom is downstairs so keep that in mind if anyone in your group has difficulty with stairs.
The guest cabin with extra sleeping quarters is footsteps away and joined by a pergola....artwork even outsid in between cabins! There is a bedroom on both first and second floor of guest cabin. You will use the main bathroom in the other cabin...and this was not a problem at all.
We enjoyed the patio with fire pit and gorgeous view. Pat and Sally had the wood all ready for a fire when we arrived...so nice!
Our host were warm and gracious. We felt at ease and enjoyed chatting with both of them during our stay.....but they were not intrusive at all....I wish we had been able to visit with them a little more!
While staying at The Hermitage we drove up to Talkeetna to go flight seeing around Denali. Unfortunately weather did not allow us to go up so we just enjoyed the town.
This is the perfect place for a couple or a small group of adults. It would not be the best set up children. Our stay there was one of the highlights of our vacation. We miss it!
