50th birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Alaska to celebrate my 50th birthday. Part of our stay was at Glacier View on the Kilcher Homestead. The cabin and awesome views were breathtaking! We had everything we needed as the cabin was fully equipped with everything you would need. It was truly a home away from home. We took a tour of the beautiful homestead, hiked to the beach and the georgeous meadows overlooking the bay. We also got to meet Otto on our hike to the beach. Such a nice surprise as we are huge fans of the show! Will definitely stay here again if we ever get back to Alaska!

Can't get better than this

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Glacier View! It was clean, well stocked - we wanted for nothing. The house sits above the bay as shown in the pictures. We probably took 300 pictures of the same view 😀...but it's hard not to!

Catkin is a pleasure to deal with and clearly cares about her vacationers and wants to be sure you are happy. She is very responsive.

Homer is only 12 miles away, so getting groceries and fresh fish is easy. Once you get back to the house you can just be in your own quiet world and be in awe of Alaska from your front porch!

A Magical Place to Unwind and Reflect

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 nights at GlacierView Getaway. The home is wonderfully cozy and very well stocked. Catkin came by to welcome us and check in. She introduced us to some family documentaries that were so interesting and gave us such insight into the homestead, how it came to be and how it is that it is still so wonderfully in tact. We had a moose and her calf with us all 3 days from when we arrived until when we left. They even slept all night in the meadow just beneath the bedroom window. The views are not only beautiful, they are almost magical. This is a wonderful gift that Catkin has chosen to share. Catkin referred us to Captain Greg for Halibut & Salmon fishing which turned out to be an amazing experience with a wonderful captain & deck hand. We had busy, adventure packed days and then spent quiet nights at the cabin cooking the salmon we caught that day. A recent knee injury kept me from walking down to the beach but I do hope to do that eventually some day. We hope to visit again soon and spend even more time in Homer and visiting the homestead.

Once again, we had a Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at the Glacier view cabin on the Kilcher Homestead. We could not ask for a more gracious host in Catkin Kilcher Burton. We even got to meet Atz, Bonnie, Shane and Kelly at Atz's Gallery showing in Homer. The cabin is comfortable, well equipped with spectacular views of the Bay and Glaciers. The Kilcher's are down home kind of people. We wouldn't think of intruding on their privacy but when we saw them out and about they were gracious, friendly and very accommodating.

A beautiful cabin in a beautiful setting!

We had a blast staying at the Glacier View Getaway cabin! The cabin, the view and everything about our stay there was more than we expected. I would recommend everyone to book a vacation there.
