  • AMAZING FAMILY CELEBRATION - 60TH B-DAY ADVENTURE

    "Our family traveled to Homer Alaska to celebrate our father's 60th birthday with a family adventure trip! It was important that we selected the perfect house as a home base for our family dinners and a great property to explore and build wonderful memories we can treasure forever! This property and Catkin (and her family) exceeded our expectations. Everyone of our family had a wonderful time on the property and appreciated the time spent with some of the Kilchner family and the property caretaker. The property has wonderful views as well as some wonderful family history to experience. Catkin has done a nice job of paying attention to all details that make the cabin so comfortable - comfortable beds, warm and comfortable extra comforters and blankets and pillows! The kitchen is fully stocked and it was nice to have some items provided in the kitchen as a good start to the visit! Our family would highly recommend this property to anyone who is seeking an amazing property in Homer Alaska! I hope you are lucky enough to meet Catkin and her wonderful family!"

  • No need to shop around - would easily go back again

    "My wife and I visited Girdwood with my parents and had a fantastic stay here. The host was extremely accommodating to our late night arrival, and helped answer questions we had about Alaska before we arrived, and even further on our trip. They were a great resource, and it felt so good to be traveling a long ways, but have someone on the other end helping answer last minute questions and curiosities. They also made fantastic recommendations on great places to eat, shop, hike, etc. Inside we found probably the cleanest, most organized rental I've ever stayed in. The place was so quaint, with beautiful woodwork, books, games, DVDs, a compete kitchen, coffees and muffins for breakfast, and a gorgeous walk-out patio within an earshot of a small creek that runs only about 10 yards away. I could have sat there for days. My folks took the bedroom that was very spacious with two closets, and my wife and I took the pull-out sofa which worked just fine and was even already made up for our late night arrival (thank you again). We had plenty of room for bags and gear. There’s even a small coat-rack/shoe/boot area outside the apartment door in a foyer area to put clothes after a wet day of hiking. The property itself is on a small street, so there was very little traffic, very little noise, just pure quiet. The location is also walkable to a few restaurants and stores for food/drinks (about a half mile) and some great hiking trails with trailheads near the resort only being a little over a mile away. Easily walkable. It was a great way to start our trip, and we all agreed that we could have easily stayed longer to just sit and enjoy the apartment as much as we enjoyed hiking and touring throughout Girdwood and the surrounding area. We would gladly go back the next time we come to town."

  • Fantastic place.

    "My husband and I stayed 2 nights here. Wanted to stay longer. The grounds are beautiful with connecting streams and a small pond. Much bird life. Clean quaint cabins. The place is very quiet and perfect for relaxing after hiking or fishing the great trails and streams nearby. Kent and Melanie are great hosts and Melanie is a dynamite creative cook. So nice to have full course dinner when you return each day. We will send friends and we will be back too! T and C"

  • Michigan friends have an awesome time!

    "three couples from Michiganspent 10 days here. the house was very nice clean and accommodating to making it feel just like home. The river was easy to get to and very nice that we did not have to fight the crowd to fish. we could fish at anytime and we are taking home over 250 pounds of fish! I would definitely recommend these accommodations!"
