About the owner: Kristi McLean: is a self-supporting artist and fisherman. She was born and raised in rural Alaska to a fishing family. This property belongs to her family. Each year she returns to this homestead in Alaska to reconnect with the land and sea that has been so inspirational to her art work. In fact, there is kelp forest shower created and installed by the artist herself. There is a working fish-site on the property, an artist studio with art installations accenting the cabin. Another unique highlight is the 100 gallon outdoor aquarium. Kristi's favorite thing to do on the property as a child was to collect sea life for view in the aquarium and release at the end of the year.
Why the Owner Chose Seldovia:
History: Alaskan Pioneers built this rustic cabin and retaining it's historic charm, water and electricity were later added for comfort. It has everything you need for an unforgettable stay. Kristi lives next door and can answer any questions.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Wildlife & Sea Life: The waters of Kachemak Bay are some of the richest in the world for sea life offering visitors an unforgettable experience. Here you will see Bald Eagles and Sea Otters from your doorstep. The unique geology of the area, has produced a fantastic setting for beach combing, tide pooling (best at minus tides), fishing and wild life. Watch the sun rise over one beach and set from over the other.
