Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Homer - Wild Shore Escape

Comfortable and cozy...4 Br/2-1/2 Ba Log Home with Views of Kachemak Bay!

Wild Shore Escape is a tri-level authentic log home built in 1983. The three floors are connected by an elegant steel spiral staircase. It provides that cozy Alaskan ambiance with wide open views of Kachemak Bay and the Homer Spit. Just 8.5 miles East of Homer, we are located just half a mile from the Fritz Creek General Store and The Homestead Restaurant.

Our cabin gives you the rustic Alaskan feel while providing modern creature comforts. If the weather is rainy, you will feel snug and comfy here. If the weather is nice you can open up the french doors and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful views.

We provide 4 bedrooms including a loft with a 1/2 bath. A continual spiral staircase connects the three floors. There is a fully equipped kitchen to meet your cooking needs while staying in Homer. The wrap around deck provides the perfect place to have your morning coffee or an evening barbeque.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Kim Winslow

My husband, Eric and I bought our property with a dream of building a log cabin in 1983. As our family grew, so did the cabin! Eric is a commercial Salmon fisherman, so while he is busy with the Fishing Season, I run the vacation rental! We are happy to share the cabin with you, our special guests!

Kim Winslow purchased this cabin in 1983

Why Kim Winslow chose Homer

We love our location because it is out of the hustle bustle of town, but just far enough. It is a short 10-15 minute drive from Homer and the World famous Spit! And only 1/2 mile from Fritz Creek General store/deli, and The Homestead Fine Dining restaurant. (We highly recommend both!)

What makes this cabin unique

You will fall in love with our views of the Bay and Mountains in the daytime and the twinkling lights on the spit at night.

Awsome Views

  • 5 out of 5
Recently rented this place during our Homer fishing trip. The views from the deck were awsome and the log home was very comfortable. We really enjoyed The bbq and deck for evening dinner. The sleeping arrangements were perfect for 4 guys with each getting his own room. I strongly recommend this rental to anyone vacationing in Homer.

Awesome Time!!!

  • 5 out of 5
This place is a gem! There were 3 couples total that stayed in the cabin and we all had plenty of room. Kim was wonderful in meeting all of our needs and I would recommend this beautiful cabin to anyone looking to getaway but still be close to everything Homer has to offer. We had a blast and I look forward to coming back again.

I stayed at this lovely cabin with my husband and in-laws, and it was the perfect place for us. We loved the amazing views of the glaciers and enjoyed hanging out on the deck with a neighborhood dog. The cabin is a short drive to Homer spit. Staying at the cabin was the best part of the vacation!

We had a lovely stay, different view of kachemak bay and spit from the typical view in town. Very cozy cabin, elegant, comfortable, kept very well. Will definitely rent again next year.

Kim was very welcoming! The cabin was inviting and pleasant-clean. My family of 6 were very comfortable, we had plenty of room and lacked nothing. Wonderful views of the bay and the spit. Quiet and relaxing. Thank you for sharing.

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 out of 5
Wonderful cabin! We had a great time. The cabin was very clean, the beds were comfy and there was plenty of room for our group of 6 people. The views from the living room and deck are fabulous! Very quiet and relaxing, but only a short drive into town. Thanks for letting us enjoy your place and hope to stay again sometime.
