"Simply put... Magnificent! The cabin, the host (Catkin is a delight!), the location, and especially THE VIEW! Other joys included the visiting porcupines munching clover in the meadow in front of the cabin, the freedom to explore the Kilcher Homestead, meeting the very real and down-to-earth Kilcher family members busy with the work of the day to day (a dry season causing a lack of water for the animals etc during our stay), the walk down to Kilcher Beach with so many incredible views of the bay, homestead, hay fields, fireweed, eagles... and more!
The biggest "problem" was knowing when to come inside in the land of the midnight sun. It's nearly impossible to stop soaking in the view of the glaciers, mountains, bay, forests and meadows as the light changes through the day and evening.
We also enjoyed the town of Homer, sailing off of Homer Spit, and pizza at Finn's on the spit.
Our visit to Glacierview and Homer was a true highlight of our two week trip! Many thanks to Catkin for such a warm welcome!"

"This place is absolutely fabulous!! Incredibly clean, very well stocked and quite comfortable. Nice and quiet place right on the river. Love that the owners Mike and Jaci are dog people and open to guests with dogs. Our dog was right at home wandering around. It was enjoyable to have the owners right there on the property going about their daily chores, and their dogs out and about as well. We will stay here again."

The Hot tub is the perfect touch after a long walk.....The kitchen is equipped with all the you need the barbeque is easy to you and I simple would never stay any where else again when visiting Girdwood...."

"our group rented this lovely home plus another on nearby Tanner Ct, and it was a perfect combo for our son's Girdwood wedding. The house is comfortable and well equipped with plenty of everything you'd want and need. A cell phone was left behind at checkout and we got an immediate concerned call from Steve, the owner, hoping we hadn't gotten too far to retrieve or make other arrangements. The lovely master, master bath and dressing area made beautiful backdrops for the bridal party's "getting ready" photos. Our group loved this house and highly recommend to others -- it won't disappoint."
