Great private location. Great view.

We spent four nights at the glacier view cabin. It was a great experience. Excellent views of the mountains, glaciers and wildlife. Would be happy to stay again and would recommend it to friends.

Peaceful Alaskan log cabin with a priceless view.

  • 5 of 5

I had been planning my 1st ever trip to Alaska for over a year. I wanted a comfortable cabin with the true Alaskan feel. I wanted peacefulness and incredible views. Catkin's Glacier View cabin delivered on all counts. Every morning, I awoke to views of Kachemak Bay, the mountains, and glaciers. The tranquility was perfect for unwinding from my busy life. I return from this vacation refreshed and very happy. Thank you Catkin for sharing this lovely cabin!

Beautiful cabin, breath taking views, calm and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The cabin is beautiful and welcoming. We could feel the love that had been put into it. The scenery is unbelievable and the history of the property is awe inspiring. We would recommend this property to anyone who values nature and peaceful surroundings.

Comfortable and peaceful with a spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Glacier View Getaway last week. The cabin is very well-appointed, clean, and well-kept. We enjoyed being able to have the comforts of home and more, including a wood stove, firepit, grill, and convenient washer/dryer, as well as a beautiful kitchen. It's wonderfully quiet, but we could drive to Homer for boats, stores, and beach in about 20 minutes. The owner and her grounds-keeper were super helpful and checked in during our stay to be sure all was OK. My only cautions: be aware that the onsite path to the rugged, isolated beach is about a mile each way (though WELL worth the trek and a gorgeous walk with wildflowers everywhere), and know that there is not much insulation between the upper and lower floors, so if you have kids with you the noise may carry a bit. Those are nits, however. We adored this place and hope to be back in a future summer!
