BETWEEN BEACHES PIONEER CABIN AND CANNERY CABIN

Homer Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 3)

Our rustic 12' x 16' rental cabins, located on the McLean family home-site, are only steps away from the beach and waterfront of Kasitsna and Kachemak Bays. Each cabin, surrounded by spruce and alder, offer spectacular views of the bays, islands, and snow-capped mountains. Built by Jack and Jo McLean, Alaskan pioneers, the Pioneer Cabin faces Kasitsna Bay and glows in the morning sunrise. The Cannery Cabin, built by Kristi and Brad, faces Kachemak Bay and catches the evening sunsets. Both cabins are equipped with full-sized bed and extra sleeping cot, full kitchens with running water, microwave, small fridge, electric heat, shower, and toilet. We provide utensils, pots and pans, towels and linens, and WIFI. Each cabin site includes picnic table, BBQ with propane, Adirondack chairs, clam rakes and buckets. Renters may use our fish cleaning table, freezer space, and rowboat.

Your hosts, Kristi McLean and Brad Langvardt, are true Alaskans having spent most of their adult lives working and enjoying the great Alaska outdoors. Kristi, a life long Alaskan, was raised in a log cabin by her pioneer parents. By the age of 20, she had already coached skating and skiing, commercial fished, and was running her own boat and crew. Commercial fishing for salmon, halibut, crab, and herring have take her throughout Alaska's waters. A self-taught artist, working primarily in clay, she teaches and creates art in her studio, camps, retreats, and schools. Brad arrived in Alaska as a teenager, found work with a big-game guide, and at 21 became a registered guide. He started his own guiding business and for over 20 years guided hunters and fishermen from all over the globe. Being a pilort for over 40 years, he has been able to see most of Alaska from his plane. In addition to building wood skiffs and drift boats, he is a skilled story-teller.

Kristi McLean purchased this cabin in 1965

The inspirational wonder of Alaska's marine environment is right outside your cabin door.

The waters of Kachemak Bay are some of the richest in the world for sea life, offering visitors an unforgettable experience. Here you will see bald eagles and sea otters from your doorstep. The unique geology of the area, has produced a fantastic setting for beach combing, tide pooling (best at minus tides), fishing and wild life. Watch the sun rise over one beach and set over the other.

My wife and I went here for our first wedding anniversary. The accommodations are rustic(that's how we like it) but well maintained and have running water, electricity and wifi! The owner lives on the property but we found we could see as much or as little of her as we wanted. Lots of outdoor activities and a prime location to take off on a beach walk or a boat ride. It's a short ride to downtown Seldovia where we had an excellent lunch and then ate wild strawberries and took in the beauty of the area. Our dog had a blast chasing sticks on the beach and chasing the salmon jumping in the water. It was so much fun I almost want to leave a bad review so that no one else knows about it! Can't wait to go back!

An Unforgettable Experience

Alaska now has a very special place in my heart, and this place really did it. Staying in Between Beaches is so much more than an accommodation - it is truly an unforgettable experience. The area lives up to the saying, "where the road ends, Alaska begins" The cabin holds original pieces from early 1900s when it was built, the stove, many of the dishes, and interesting antiquities. At the same time, modern amenities like the beds accommodated my husband, 2 year old daughter and myself comfortably. The photos accurately reflect the place and it was well equipped with amenities. We spent our 5 days relaxing on either of the two beaches (both literally a few steps away), exploring around the area, kayaking, and visiting Seldovia - charming little town about 15 minutes away. Most of all, it was wonderful to let my toddler roam around everywhere without being worried. It is a very safe environment with so much for kids to do. The owner, Kristi, was kind, fun, and very accommodating, as were her neighbors. We thank them all for making our stay unforgettable! I would just recommend others to bring rubber boots esp. for children as they are not sold in Seldovia - my daughter ran around in wet shoes most of the time - and whatever provisions you will be needing from Homer before taking the water taxi to the cabin. There are no stores or restaurants within walking distance. Overall, I would strongly recommend this place!
