Comfortable and peaceful with a spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Glacier View Getaway last week. The cabin is very well-appointed, clean, and well-kept. We enjoyed being able to have the comforts of home and more, including a wood stove, firepit, grill, and convenient washer/dryer, as well as a beautiful kitchen. It's wonderfully quiet, but we could drive to Homer for boats, stores, and beach in about 20 minutes. The owner and her grounds-keeper were super helpful and checked in during our stay to be sure all was OK. My only cautions: be aware that the onsite path to the rugged, isolated beach is about a mile each way (though WELL worth the trek and a gorgeous walk with wildflowers everywhere), and know that there is not much insulation between the upper and lower floors, so if you have kids with you the noise may carry a bit. Those are nits, however. We adored this place and hope to be back in a future summer!

simple Alaska ambiance in a breathtaking setting

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 10 year old son and I spent a wonderful and quiet few days in the cabin.

The host made us feel very welcome, the cabin was very comfortable and well stocked.

We can wholeheartedly recommend this property to others and would love to come back.

Comfortable, Clean and Tidy with the most Amazing Views!!!

Kilcher Homestead

The Glacier View house is comfortable, neat and tidy, nestled perfectly into the surrounding meadow. It allows one to enjoy the the surrounding forest and flowered glade dancing to the cacophony of birds and whispering winds telling of tales past. The longer one sits allowing this symphony of splendor to grow louder, the less you can hear the threatening and relentless sounds of "progress and comfort" becoming barely audible on the distant spit. Sounds of humanity busily searching for their own piece of splendor and life's reasons. Thank you to Yule, Ruth and the Kilcher clan to have the wisdom to share it and to

pass it on to their next generations. Hopefully they also, will see the wisdom of preserving and maintaining this special place and embracing the way of life it can afford. Thank you Catkin and the entire Kilcher family for allowing us to celebrate this special time in our life, in such a magical place filled with so much energy and serenity.

It truly is incredible!

One of our favorite places on the earth!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love staying at Glacier View. We stayed here 5 years ago, and always planned to return. It will always be on our list of places to stay when we come to Alaska again. The cabin is adorable, well stocked, comfortable and the view is breathtaking! We love walking about the homestead and walking to the beach. Catkin is a great host and has become a friend as well. We will be back for sure!

Beautiful, relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location. Very quiet and relaxing. House had much more than we expected and was very comfortable. Views were incredible! Catkin was a very gracious host and gave a great tour of the Homestead. The hike to the beach was full of awe-inspiring views. Highly recommend anyone considering this to stay here!
