Found this place on TripAdvisor and it did not disappoint. I live in Anchorage but had never been to Homer and needed a place for my parents, my husband and I to stay while we were there for a fishing trip. The view was incredible with a great open area over the water right outside the cabin. We arrived the afternoon of the first night and spend several hours watching eagles, otters, humpback and (we think) orca whales. Bring some binoculars! This place is conveniently right off the highway right before you enter Homer but you don't hear the noise from the road at all.
If you're in town for a fishing excursion (a must-do in Homer), give yourself about 15-20 minutes to drive through town to get to the harbor, park, and find the correct slip for your charter.
Gas grill with grilling tools, small table and 2 chairs outside, 1 lawn chair
Full bathroom with hair dryer
Kitchen has mini-fridge, coffee maker and set of plates, glasses, wine goblets, silverware, platter, serving bowl, salt/pepper. Also had a bowl full of popcorn, hot chocolate, coffee makings.
Big screen TV with sattelite, surround sound, wireless and DSL internet with cord
Hot Tub - 15 person hot tub was perfect in the evenings, definitely a huge plus...bring a swimsuit!
Fire pit - we made s'mores the second night. You need to provide your own firewood to build the fire (liability reasons)
Continental Breakfast - Didn't get to try but cereal/milk was available, yogurt, bagels, waffle batter to make your own waffles. This was in a small trailer right next to the cabins. Didn't open until 7 so our suggestion was to open this a little earlier since a lot of the fishing excursions leave the harbor at 7 am.
We were impressed with the TV/internet availability at these cabins, you get to experience Alaska view and wildlife while still feeling very comfortable in the cabin. Larry was great as well as the girl working the front desk (Winter I think was her name?). She saw we didn't have any binoculars but were watching the wildlife out in the water so she brought a pair to use during our stay. Nice touch and a must-have.
The owner is working to expand this place (sometime late 2012 perhaps?). I believe it will contain a lodge with several more rooms, perhaps a restaurant and a spa to replace the hot tub (although I loved the hot tub as it is).
I will return with other friends/visitors to give them a nice taste of Alaska!
5 cabins available (although in the process of building an additional lodge). All were identical, b...
