This is the beautiful original Kilcher Homestead. Some areas have been featured on the Discovery tv show Alaska: The Last Frontier. Several of Yule's 8 kids still live on the land. We enjoy sharing the wonder of this land and this life style with others. It is a truly peaceful and grounding experience to walk these woods or stroll to the beach.

Kelli Kilcher purchased this cabin in 1944

Yule Kilcher left this property to his children in a Trust so that it would never become developed or exploited and could remain in its natural setting for many generations to come. We still have a working farm on the property and are in the process of developing a folk school.

Very beautiful and secluded. The host family is engaging and friendly. The cabin is much bigger than it looks from the pics and all the farm activities continue all around you. You'll want to bring a little extra money to buy the rooster that crows at 4:00 in the morning, and have him for dinner the next day.

Redefining comfort

To be frank, I was a bit apprehensive when I first arrived at this place. It takes a while to get to the cabin from Homer. Its very old and rustic. I probably didn't read the description before booking but I found out there were no showers and the restroom was a outhouse. But the location is beautiful set in a huge meadow, overlooking the Kachemak Bay and glaciers across. The inside is simple and basic, but cozy and comfortable. I probably spelt the best in my two weeks in AK. The place forces you to redefine what we city dwellers call comfort. You may not find the external comforts, but you will soon find a internal comfort. It made me realize, I don't need modern amenities to be comfortable. There is this certain warmth and welcoming feeling to this place. We arrive feeling tentative, but left happy. Thank you for keeping this place the way it is (which probably is the way our parents and grandparents lived). We had a teenager in our party and to our surprise, he loved the stay here.

Best part of my Alaskan holiday

There are many reasons why I would 100% recommend that you make the Barn part of your Alaskan adventure. Firstly location, the view is to die for, it is off the beaten track but not too far, there is access to miles of beach via a lovely walk down the edge of a canyon. Then there is the history of the site being a pioneer homestead with the original homestead cabin (living museum) nearby to visit and marvel at how the Kilcher family lived. The barn itself has everything you need, and a real 'little house on the prairie' vibe, even a piano! Then of course there is Fay ( of the original Kilcher family), lovely Fay who will make you feel soooo welcome, I spent 7 weeks touring alaska and without doubt this was the best part of my holiday
