vacation rental description

A beautiful, hand crafted log cabin, fully outfitted, next to an Alaskan historic site of rich significance & space. Can accomodate large groups (4 bedrooms and loft) or small. Each log in this cabin was carefully downed, limbed, crafted, notched, and fitted by a long time homesteader, Atz Kilcher with help from his brother Otto Kilcher. Sitting above stunning scenery, the cabin provides modern amenities in a rustic setting. A mix of antique furniture with modern and log style furniture in the kitchen, living room and downstairs bedrooms. Bamboo kitchen flooring is a treat and the cabin has been lovingly maintained (new downstairs shower, new laundry & high end machines, new tiling and carpeting throughout). We have provided a wood stove with a custom built rock hearth for ambience, but has upstairs and downstairs oil heat for convenience.

The large master bedroom overlooks a view you will never forget (think Kachemak Bay, glaciers, mountains, pink and purple sunsets and, admittedly more rarely, the aurora borealis), and there is a small bedroom right next door if you have a youngster you prefer to keep close, and two windo nooks that even adults sleep in. The older kids or adult guests will enjoy the two bedrooms on the lowest level. Sited on a 50 acre parcel next to a homestead where eight children of an early State Senator grew up in an austere 400 square foot homesteaders cabin.

Easy access to the Kilcher Family Homestead provides over 600 acres to hike in if you desire along with prized access to the beach via one of only two beach access sites outisde of Homer on the near side of McNeil Canyon. There is a pole barn and meadow/pasture above the house that is fun to explore. There are also meadows, and other interesting land features surrounding the cabin. It is not unususal to see moose, black bear (shy ones), porcupines, sandhill cranes, eagles, hawks, song birds, marmots, seals and other wild life on the Kilcher Homestead.

Amazing Log Home

Review submitted: June 11, 2014   Date of arrival: May 24, 2014

My family spent 2 weeks in this beautiful log home. It really felt like a home away from home. Catkin and Tom are wonderful people and really made our stay even better than imagined. The views from every window are breathtaking. The kitchen is fully equipped, beds are very comfortable, and the home is cozy with the warmth of Kilcher personal decor. We had a great tour of the museum and enjoyed learning about the Kilcher homestead. We went fishing with Captain B. and brought home lots of halibut and rock fish. We took walks on the property and hikes in the local parks. This was a trip of a lifetime! We have beautiful family photos and memories that will last forever! Thank you Catkin, Tom, and Liam for making our stay truly unforgettable.

SIMPLY AMAZING

Review submitted: May 27, 2014   Date of arrival: May 20, 2014

The cabin is absolutely beautiful! It sits half way up the bay and has incredible views of the bay and the mountains! It's about 15 minute drive from Homer and feels like you are in the wild! Great place and had a wonderful time. We actually cancelled a few things on our itinerary just to stay on the property! Will plan to stay here again!!!
