Beautiful, quaint cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying out on the Kilcher homestead. Catkin was incredibly helpful. The views were out of this world.

A slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Simply put... Magnificent! The cabin, the host (Catkin is a delight!), the location, and especially THE VIEW! Other joys included the visiting porcupines munching clover in the meadow in front of the cabin, the freedom to explore the Kilcher Homestead, meeting the very real and down-to-earth Kilcher family members busy with the work of the day to day (a dry season causing a lack of water for the animals etc during our stay), the walk down to Kilcher Beach with so many incredible views of the bay, homestead, hay fields, fireweed, eagles... and more!

The biggest "problem" was knowing when to come inside in the land of the midnight sun. It's nearly impossible to stop soaking in the view of the glaciers, mountains, bay, forests and meadows as the light changes through the day and evening.

We also enjoyed the town of Homer, sailing off of Homer Spit, and pizza at Finn's on the spit.

Our visit to Glacierview and Homer was a true highlight of our two week trip! Many thanks to Catkin for such a warm welcome!

Our stay at the Glacier View was as awesome as the landscape. The cabin was stocked with all items that you might need. Catkin treated us as guests in her home and we felt like family, The tour of the Kilcher Homestead was informative and got to meet a few Kilcher family members. We enjoyed our trip down to the beach. Thanks to Catkin for her personal tours. It was a vacation to remember in a cozy cabin with a fantastic view of the bay & glaciers.

We had a wonderful 3 day stay on the Kilcher Homestead. The views were breathtaking and the stay was awesome. Catkin's cabin was fully furnished and very quaint. We loved seeing the family pictures and viewing the video on the Kilcher family. Catkin was very accommodating and even made time for a personal tour. Thanks again! Highly recommend this rental!

Awesome Alaskan Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Glacier View Getaway in early May. From the moment we saw the view of the bay and the mountains in the backround we fell in love. It is by far the best vacation we've had and being able to stay in a cozy, beautiful, well maintained, clean, etc. cabin made our stay even better. We actually had hoped to meet more of the Kilcher's (we obviously met Catkin), but in the end it didn't matter to us. While your channel selection will be sparse, you won't be needing the TV anyway :) Thanks again.

Hospitality ++++++++++

  • 5 of 5

You would think that the stars of the hit show "Alaska, The Last Frontier" would be stuffy, and standoffish. Nothing could be further than the truth. We found them to be friendly, accommodating and very patient with our starstruckness, (is that a word?) Although we wouldn't think of intruding on their privacy, when we did crosspaths with them they were amazingly gracious to us. Catkin, especially, was super kind to me and my gimpiness (sprained knee). She gave me a ride back to our amazing cabin with the most spectacular views. I have found my new "home" away from home in Homer Alaska.
