Why Mossy Kilcher chose Homer
I grew up on a wilderness homestead with my 7 siblings, and when this old homestead near Homer came available I just had to own it and continue the farming tradition I grew up with. Its one of the few properties left along Kachemak Bay, with a trail down to the beach where you can beach comb for miles in solitude, watching the eagles soar overhead and the sea otters play out in the bay. I also make the meadows available to tent camping, and have cabins around for guests who enjoy simple, rustic Alaska style accomodations. Young workers come from around the world to learn organic farming skills and the Homer residents come every fall to pick raspberries in the 70 year old patch or attend "farm day" in summer with their children.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
I love this old house because it reminds me--and everyone who visits--of my own childhood. It feels like grandma's farm. Its nothing fancy, dont expect the best western hotel! Facilities are shared, and a bit rustic. I try to create an out of the way, down home, winnie the pooh playful feeling. I want people to have a retreat here, or mingle with people, enjoy solitude or wildlife and connect with your inner child, with nature and simpler times. As an added bonus, I will be glad to organize a special tour of my family's cabin at the Kilcher Homestead. Advance notice is required. The town of Homer is only 5 miles away, with art galleries, theatre, fancy restaurants, coffee shops, fishing opportunities, boat rides, and tours available.

We loved Seaside Farm!
We loved Seaside Farm. It is rustic, not schmancy, like the working farm that it is. Mossy is delightful. We definitely plan to come back!
