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.

Spent 2 nights in the Glacier View cabin...the place was awesome! Catkin checked in with us to make sure everything was as expected. On our walk to the beach and back...August stopped and talked with us and a few minutes later Otto rolled up and chatted for awhile. What a weekend!!! We will be coming again....maybe in the winter months!!!

once in a lifetime dream stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the place for you especially if you are a fan of Alaska the Last Frontier! We had an incredible stay. The cabin is beautiful with all the modern conveniences. Catkin is lovely and very easy to work with. The view is breathtaking. The cabin is just a short walk from the Kilcher Homestead Museum (the original cabin) and the Barn! Do not miss hiking down to the beach and back. It's all amazing.

Beautiful home and amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Glacier view cabin! The home was clean and had everything we needed for our stay with 3 kids. The views were even more beautiful than we expected. We were able to hike around the homestead and talked to several of the Kilchers. They were all very welcoming and friendly. Catkin was very nice and accommodating. The homestead is a very pretty place and we are looking forward to coming back someday.

We were there for 2 nights and wished we had another night or 2.

Another couple went with my husband and I as a 35th wedding anniversary. We had an absolute wonderful time. The cabin is beautiful and meets all your needs from cooking to washing clothes! We had a visit by a porcupine and a walk down to the beach. Catkin is a wonderful host. She checked on us both evenings and even introduced us to the newest cast member for the Discovery program, as we are fans. She met with us to do the Kicher homestead tour early, as we needed to get on the road. My biggest recommendation would to be not to hesitate in asking her for suggestions or assistance for activities you may want to do. She will assist you in any way she can. Thank you Carlin for a wonderful visit, just needed to be longer!
