Homer house description

Welcome to the Grand View Retreat Chalet overlooking a spectacular view of Kachemak Bay, Cooks Inlet, Dixon Glacier, Portlock Glacier, Grewingk Glacier, and Homer Spit.

This 5,200 sq. ft. luxurious chalet has 5 bedrooms with attached baths, and a cozy loft bedroom with trundle beds. It is very private and is tastefully decorated, has a large gourmet kitchen, a 60” big screen TV, I pod dock, barbeque grill, 4 decks, 2 Jacuzzi tubs and too much more to list. With two very large living rooms and a gigantic loft, all with spectacular views, it is perfect for special occasions such as family reunions.

Most visitors are taken aback from the breathtaking view of the Alaskan Mountains and nearby glaciers, surrounding Ketchmak Bay. At night you can enjoy the beautiful spectacle of light emanating from the nearby Famous Homer Spit.

The Chalet is located 9 miles from town, but is close to nearby shopping, wine tasting, fine dining, art galleries and museums. Animal enthusiasts will enjoy the safe view of nearby Alaskan wildlife that includes bears, otters, moose, eagles, birds, hares, porcupines and other animals indigenous to the area.

Seafood and fishing lovers will have their fill of Alaskan Halibut, varieties of salmon, rock fish, and clams. Overall this property will allow you to enjoy the awe-inspiring beauty of Alaska with all the comforts of home. Several moose live in the woods surrounding the house and it is very common to see more than one moose from the balcony. They really love the clover right under the balcony.

I promise you just one thing. When it is time to go home, you will not want to leave. But then, you can always come again next year.


Additional amenities: satellite TV, assortment of DVDs and board games, off street parking for 10 vehicles.
