Loved the cabin, the Mountain View’s out every window, the beautiful beach, the endless rolling hills and the kind and generous Kilcher family.

WOW!!! There is nothing like this cabin - magical inside and out!! Amazing host!

  • 5 of 5

This was was a surprise stay for a surprise engagement on a night we were supposed to be "car camping." Catkin BENT OVER BACKWARDS to make sure this was a very special experience for us. The whole nine yards. Both of our jaws dropped when we walked through the door and I was supposed to be the one that "organized" it!!! Blew my expectations out of the water.

The property is super well stocked and had everything we could have needed. The views are incredible. I wish we could have spent a week here instead of just one day. We just sat for hours enjoying the view out of the living area windows and sipped champagne in celebration!!

We slept great in the comfortable bed. It is a good thing the windows face east so the sun can remind you another day of adventure awaits. If not, we would have been in the comfy bed all day.

We one hundred percent recommend staying here for anyone that wants to experience the raw beauty of Homer not just from a tour or hike, but also while unpacking, cooking dinner, doing laundry, or just relaxing on the couch. Absolutely wonderful cabin and stellar host!!

Gorgeous!!!!! Breathtaking !!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cabin. Only disappointments were not being able to see and meet Catkin. We had to park at another cabin down the road and up the hill and walk to the Glacier View cabin with all our luggage. Had to make 2 trips because we bought groceries for our stay. The weather was nice. But with everything melting and rain it caused the roads to be spongy and closed where you couldn’t drive on them. Catkin was nice enough to contact her sister Fay and she came with her 4 wheeler when we checked out and carried our luggage to our car which was such a blessing. We loved meeting Fay. She was a absolute joy. So thankful for her. We saw Otto several times from a distance but he never made a effort to speak or anything so we respected his privacy and never approached him either. We figured if he wanted to speak or meet us then he would have. We did meet Eivin but not under good circumstances. He was a nice guy though. We did appreciate his help. We hiked down to the beach through the wet mud which was very interesting. Lol. Saw the outside of the museum but didn’t get to see the inside. Wish we could have. This was our first trip ever to Alaska and celebrated our anniversary. The views are spectacular. Ones we will never forget. So blessed and thankful we got to stay in the Glacier View cabin. But if giving advice we would recommend coming a little later on. We came April 24-26 and it was just too early Never saw a bear or moose. Only saw a bald eagle. It wasn’t until we got back to Anchorage that we saw two moose. We visited the Spit in Homer also. It was very neat to see. We recommend staying in the Glacier View cabin. You will enjoy it. Thanks for the memories. The Gardner’s from Arkansas

Cozy cabin. Stunning View.

  • 5 of 5

I've lived in Alaska for fifteen years and this cabin has by far the most stunning view I've ever seen. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. The cabin was cozy and comfortable. The peace and quiet were perfect. The night sky was thick with stars and Catkin was helpful and kind. I would highly recommend this cabin to others and would love to return again myself.

This is the second year in a row that i have stayed at this cabin. The only bad view some may say would be looking out the window at the out house, which i found to be adorable. Some of the most beautiful birds and wildlife i have seen.
