Property description

Stariski Overlook Home

This home sits on a site selected as a homestead over 100 years ago. The view is simply mesmerizing. Gaze across Cook inlet at Illiamna volcano, Saint Augustine volcano and on a clear day all the way to Mount Douglas. In the foreground you gaze over the Stariski Creek valley. Located at the end of a private driveway you will find a large plush and cozy cabin perfect for enjoying Alaska in all seasons.

Located a few miles north of Anchor Point we are about twenty minutes north of Homer or fifteen minutes south of Ninilchick.

Choose from countless options for salmon and halibut fishing in either direction. This is a retreat from which you can embark on daily excursions to go fishing, wildlife viewing, hiking, clamming, or flight seeing, Rainy days are perfect to visit the Islands and Oceans Visitor Center, the Pratt Museum or meander the shops and art galleries of Homer.

If you want a break from it all this is a fabulous place to sit and read a book, write a book, paint, grill salmon or halibut and contemplate life. On a clear day dinner on the deck is unforgettable.
Bald eagles frequently are soaring overhead. Moose are occasional visitors to the yard. Other wildlife sighted from the house include black bear, ermine, river and sea otters, harlequin ducks, gulls, yellowlegs, belted kingfishers, loons, harbor seals, murres, oldsquaw, scoters, Steller's jays, chickadees, kinglets, warblers.

Our all cedar home features 4 bedrooms, 1 -full bath, 1- 3/4 bath and 1- 1/2 bath. In season there is an outside shower that is great! Full kitchen, Living room with wood stove, dining room, and den area with Toyo stove. Wood fired hot tub as well as an electric hot tub with an incredible view is available. It takes some work but it is great!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We have been coming to Alaska for thirty years to visit family and enjoy the spectacular scenery and wildlife. Our kids talk about our time in Alaska all year and look forward all winter to returning.

Why the Owner Chose Anchor Point:
We love to spend time in Alaska every year. The views, the wildlife, and the experiences create memories to last a lifetime. This house provides solitude and a million dollar view. Good proximity to fishing, hiking, and the charm of Homer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Far enough off the paved roads to be quiet and peaceful, yet close enough to be easily accessible.
