Dave and I had a wonderful time! We were really in need of a break from all our responsibilities and time for just the two of us. Your place was perfect for what we needed; we hated to leave! Thank you so much!

WONDERFUL vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
We would highly recommend this attractive, well equipped vacation home for your next stay away from home. The view of the bay is ever-changing, breathtaking! If you are looking for a getaway that is close to many vacation activities, shopping, fishing, wonderful dining, this is your choice. The owner quickly answered any questions that we had, prior to our trip. The home is comfy and clean. We couldn't have asked for more!! If we vacation in Alaska again, we'd want to stay on the Homestead again. A wonderful experience that we won't soon forget.

Gorgeous location, lovely cabin

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I really enjoyed our week-long stay in this lovely cabin. The main floor has a well-appointed kitchen with plenty of cooking utensils and a pantry. There is an electric heater as well as a wood stove. The windows open up to a gorgeous view of Kachemak bay and glaciers.

The upstairs has a master bedroom with a beautiful view and a second bedroom, the bedrooms are separated by two doors, which helped keep the noise levels down.

The access road to the cabin is a dirt road, a bit bumpy in spots which runs about 3/4 mile. Catkin recommended an all-wheel drive vehicle, and we were happy to have one.

On our 3rd day, we were delighted to have some morning visitors, a cow moose and her calf, who fed and sunbathed for a couple hours on the property. There are also some local Stellers Jays and Gray Jays who seem quite friendly.

The trail on the adjoining Kilcher homestead to the beach is well maintained - about a 45 walk each way -- a bit too grueling for my wife (it's all uphill on the way back) but I enjoyed it, and the property is gorgeous.

Only minor issues were a little trouble figuring out how to operate the bath/shower (pull the brass ring under the lip of the faucet down), and one day when we did a load of clothes, the water ran low for a bit (it is fed from a cistern). These were very minor issues and overall we really enjoyed our stay. Hope to come again.

Our Glacier View Getaway

  • 4 of 5
We spent the first week in August at Glacier View. The view overlooking Katchemak Bay was awesome! My husband and brother walked to the beach and explored almost daily. It was some of the most beautiful scenery we have ever seen. This is the place to come for stress relief. The cabin was very comfortable and we enjoyed cooking fresh fish we had picked up in town. We also visited the museum and learned the history of the homestead which is amazing. Hated to see our stay come to an end.

Great Stay at Glacier View Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect stay for my wife and I - both in mid-70's. Views were fantastic. Miss Moose slept in our front yare almost every night. Proximity to other locations was just right. Recommend Homer Air to Silver Creek Salmon Lodge (they will pull you through the bears n a wagon if you have a disability) and Halibut Cove. Good restaurants too.

We rented both this charming cabin and Eagles Rest for our large family group. Loved the privacy, panoramic views, and walk down to the beach, especially a treat to return home at midnight! We had regular visits by moose and calf, even watched porcupines. The cabin is well stocked and immaculately clean. I would definitely stay here again given the chance.
