Edge of the bluff retreat.

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect getaway! Only 3 miles from Homer! Cabin nestled on a bluff that gives you a superb panoramic view of the bay, volcanos and night sky with minimal light pollution--all accessible from your private hot tub. The Alder cabin was so much fun to explore, all the details from beautiful homemade furniture to all the welding art accents--this place felt very special and inviting! Thank you again Jenn & family!

Wonderful Home Away from Home

  • 4 of 5

The view from the Alder is outstanding. We loved the design of the fire ring, with all the attention to detail. Everything you need to build a bonfire is out there, even marshmallow and hot dog skewers! The private hot tub is a great addition to the property. The kitchen was well stocked and we pulled off our Christmas feast without a hitch. I had requested that the linens get changed out once during our four night stay and it got overlooked. I’m sure if I had reminded them that third morning it would have worked out. The owners are a delightful and very hospitable family. We look forward to staying here again in the future.

Owner's Response: Tracy & Aaron, Thank you again for staying with us over Christmas! I'm so happy you had a wonderful stay in the Alder! I've already contacted you personally about this but I want to say again how sincerely sorry I am for my misunderstanding about wanting maid service the day after Christmas. That was completely my fault and won't happen again. Our number one priority is taking care of our guests and providing awesome amenities like private hot tubs, incredible views, fire pit, gas fireplaces, etc. I hope to see you both here again soon! I really appreciate your feedback. It helps us improve! Thank you, Jen

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Lupine cabin - everything is new. All the modern conveniences you could want. Flat screen TVs in every room, the kitchen is really nice and well stocked, there is a bathroom for every bedroom, and the views can't be beat. The hot tub is a bonus. We will stay here again.

Beyond expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Loved absolutely everything about this little gem! The Alder was everything we had expected from seeing the pictures online....and even more. We stayed for three nights which was the longest run of our visit to Alaska and I am so glad it was here. Wish I could have packed up the Alder (along with that view) and taken it with me for the rest of my vacation!
