Overview

About the property

Cozy 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Beautiful Cabin With Spectacular Views!

You will not be disappointed with the breathtaking scenery, exceptional wildlife viewing opportunities and the multitude of recreational, historical and cultural activities available in Homer and the surrounding area.

After arriving at the Twin Puffins (located a short 15-minute drive from downtown Homer), you can relax in the cozy cabin accentuated by warm, rich and natural golden hues of native Alaskan spruce.

The Twin Puffins features two comfy bedrooms; the Blue Bedroom has a king size bed with an en suite bathroom that has a standard size tub and shower. The Green Bedroom is available in either two twin or one king size bed configuration. A futon-style sofa in the living room is also available for additional guests. The main bathroom has an over-sized shower and is conveniently located between the bedrooms and the living room. A washer and dryer are in the cabin for your use, so you can pack light (soap is provided). The kitchen is fully equipped, including a refrigerator with a small freezer, a full-size microwave, a stove/oven and a dishwasher. Other amenities include satellite TV, a flat panel TV with surround sound and DVD player in each bedroom. In addition to the TVs in the bedrooms there is a 42' flat screen TV in the living room. The stereo in the living room can also be heard through built in speakers in the ceiling above the deck. A small selection of movies and some board games are available to keep you entertained if the weather keeps you indoors. Wired internet and WiFi are available.

From the living room, French doors open on to a large wooden deck; the perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying the view of Kachemak Bay, the Kenai Mountains, Grewingk Glacier, as well as a peaceful green pasture with a large pond. Depending on the time of year, you may see beautiful wildflowers such as the brilliant fields of fuchsia-colored fireweed, or pick fresh raspberries along the driveway. Homer is also a Birder's delight. In addition to the migrating shorebirds in the Spring, there are many birds in the area surrounding the cabin, among them are the Golden-crowned Sparrow (the 'oh-dear-me' bird) with it's distinctive call, Bald Eagles and other raptors, and Sandhill Cranes are often seen. Keep your camera ready as wildlife, such as moose and the occasional black bear or coyote, may be seen. Moose seem to enjoy an evening swim in the pond.

Whether you are in Homer on business, sabbatical, vacation or honeymoon, the Twin Puffins offers a private and secluded getaway with all the modern conveniences of home.

About Suzy or Carlton Erikson

The eight Erikson siblings (Erikson Heritage, LLC) are co-owners of the Twin Puffins. Although five of the siblings reside in other states, three live in Alaska, two of which continue to live on the homestead and co-manage the rental cabin.

Suzy or Carlton Erikson purchased this cabin in 1950

Why Suzy or Carlton Erikson chose Fritz Creek

The forty-acre homestead on which the Twin Puffins is located was established in 1950 by Bill and Esther Erikson. The Erikson children inherited the homestead property in 2003 and built the Twin Puffins Vacation Rental Cabin in 2006 as a means to keep the homestead in the family.

What makes this cabin unique

The location of the Twin Puffins was chosen for its beautiful views of the mountains and bay in the distance as well as the near-by pasture and pond. It is situated to provide privacy with a wide-open feel while at the same time remaining convenient to Homer.

Beautiful and peaceful cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed our stay over the 4th of July. It comes equipped with all the essentials and lots of nice little extras. Views from the deck of the bay and Kachemak range is awesome. The grill is perfect for cooking your fish. It is new and clean.

The property is a little outside of town but the drive is easy. It is decorated nicely and well stocked with the essentials. Great stay for any group of four wanting to explore around Homer.

Beautiful home with beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

I would love to give it a 4.8 rating if I could because the house was perfect for the 3 of us to stay. Only a couple of minor issues: water pressure was low and there was no cutting board in the kitchen. The owner was very nice and accommodating. The home was close to all attractions and very easy to find from the main road. Very quiet and peaceful.

Owner's Response: When I received your rating/review, I immediately checked on the cutting board, and located it where it normally is - although it is white, which is the same color as the cabinet it resides in. We always provide our phone number for any questions (it's not a bother), which would have quickly resolved that issue. I will try to find a better way to make it more obvious, so as to leave no doubt for future guests. As to the water pressure being "low," I'm having to assume it was in reference to pressure at the shower head(s). It's not that the water line pressure is low, per se, but we changed our shower heads to ones that flow 1.5 g/p/m in an effort to conserve our precious water. I will, however, do more research to see if there might be a shower head that offers more settings to accommodate personal preference (high or low pressure) while maintaining low water usage. Thank you, Twin Puffins Management

Beautiful home and beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this location. We always enjoy the tranquility. My husband fishes on the spit so this location is convenient. It takes about 20-25 minutes to get to the spit. Would highly recommend.

A cabin with a view

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has it all - outstanding view, spotlessly clean, excellent beds, mud room for dirty shoes, great washer & dryer, new BBQ, ceiling fans, good TV, well equipped kitchen, lots of peace and quiet, attentive landlords. We were very pleased - there were no negatives at all.
