Glacier View Get-A-Way is Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Glacier View Get-A-Way was definitely a highlight of our eleven day trip to Alaska. The cabin was beautiful, spacious, comfortable, clean and well stocked with any of the essentials that we may have forgotten. The gorgeous view and solitude was so refreshing and just what we needed. The private beach access was a highlight for our boys, who spent hours beachcombing, hiking and playing. We saw many members of the Kilcher Family, whom were all very friendly and hospitable. A special thanks to Catkin for her time and efforts in visiting with us, providing a tour of the Kilcher Homestead Living Museum, and maintaining such a special space. We hope to return again on our next visit to Alaska!

I have returned to Homer three years in a row and have always stayed at this cabin. The views are wonderful, and can see the Spit and the glacier across the bay on a clear day. I have seen may moose and calfs every year that i have come. The cabin is very clean and very comfortable. It's home.

If you want to see amazing views of mountains, glaciers, and Alaskan wildlife, this is the place. The owner is personable and a joy to talk to. Just show up with your suitcase because everything else you need is provided. Thank you, Catkin, for a wonderful experience.

Perfect Alaska Getaway with Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have asked for a better place to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary! We didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Catkin but every conversation with her was a pleasant one. Very friendly and accommodating. We did get to meet Otto, Atz Lee, Jane, Eivin & Eve which was an added bonus to our stay along with the moose who liked to join us for breakfast! The views from the cabin are second to none...breathtakingly beautiful!! The cabin was very clean and stocked with everything you could possibly need. We highly recommend this cabin for anyone who truly wants to have the perfect Alaskan experience! Catkin from the bottom of our hearts, thank you!!

Peaceful frontier paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful little cabin , perfect for 2-3 people, with stunning views on "the homestead". Impeccably clean and stocked with everything you need. We saw a few moose up close, as well as porcupines & lotsa birds, squirrels, etc.... friendly host.... verrry quiet location.... nice 2.5mi hike to the beach & back.

Cabin feels very remote, yet only 11mi from town of Homer... and Otto's cabin is about two hundred yards away..... i even heard him talkin to his cows one morning...haha.

.... definitely take eye masks for sleeping, as the cabin is very bright... .. only negative, which is very minor, is that the wood floors throughout the cabin, crackle & creek with almost every step.... so if you get up early or during the night, everyone will hear you....lol.... foam ear plugs are a cheap solution...ha.... enjoy ! 😊?
