Property description

'The Moose Lodge' is a beautiful log building that sleeps 7. The classy rustic decor creates a very special atmosphere. The loft area has a Queen Bed and ensuite. There is a Queen size day bed on the main floor. A spiral staircase leads down to a spacious bedroom in the basement with a King bed that can be seperated into 2 twins. The stair well room has additional sleeping options, The fully equipped kitchen includes a partially stocked pantry. Large windows and decks ensure that you enjoy the ever changing moods of the ocean and mountains.
You may see moose wander through the yard, eagles flying overhead, seals and sea otters swimming in front of your living room windows.

The Bears Den, an adjacent cabin, that can be booked for an additional $75 per night, has a Queen bed on the main floor and a sleeping loft upstairs (great for the kids!). The den occupants have their own full bathroom. Kitchen facilities include refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot.

Because of the 20 foot unstable bluff on the front edge of the property, there is unfortunately no direct access to the beach. It can be accessed by car 1 mile east. But really the best sandy beaches are Mariner Park (2 miles away, first right on the Spit Road) or Bishops Beach (4 miles away accessed through Old Towne).

Car: Recommended

The property is just one mile from the base of the famous 4 mile long Homer Spit and Mariner Park Beach. The seperated pathway is great for walking, biking (rentals available from Homer Saw) and rollerblading. The End-of-the-Road is a mecca for tourist shops and galleries, cafes and restaurants. The picturesque Homer Harbor offers access to Fishing Charters, Wildlife Cruises and hiking in Kachemak Bay State Park.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: We, Sam & Marilyn, first visited Homer in 1974 and made it our home in 1976. We enjoyed raising our 2 children and 2 adopted native children in this small community setting. We have been involved in establishing a successful construction company, dabbled in commercial fishing and our adopted son 'Captain' Willie now helps to run our Fishing Charter business - Reel Fun Charters. The property is managed by our friend Ruth. Proud to be a Kiwi, but she has lived in Homer for 30 years now. She raised her 3 children here and has hiked, biked, rafted and paddled her way through much of Alaska and beyond.

Why Homer:
When we first visited this property, we were awed by the sense of peacefulness that surrounded us. The craftsmanship of the woodwork and the inspiring views are delightful and capture much of what we love about Alaska. We enjoyed upgrading some of the features to create a real gem of a place that we are excited to share with others who choose to visit. The location, so close to all the amenities and tourist attractions, makes this property so ideal for your vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The 2 buildings are nestled among the trees on 1 1/2 acres with full southern exposure to capture the sun. There is a great feeling of seclusion, yet it's so close to the many attractions of Homer! The expansive deck and front lawn make a wonderful place to relax - right on the water's edge - while you marvel at the drop-dead-gorgous view of the rugged mountains and glaciers across the bay. Done with relaxing? Just 1/2 mile away the Bay Club offers a full range of exercise opportunities including a pool and racquetball courts. The paved spit trail, 1 mile away, is ideal for walking, biking and rollerblading or enjoy wandering along the beach at low tide. Grocery stores, banks, museums, galleries and several notable restaurants are all within 3 miles.
