About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This home sits on a site selected as a homestead over 100 years ago. The view is simply mesmerizing. Gaze across Cook inlet at Illiamna volcano, Saint Augustine volcano and on a clear day all the way to Mount Douglas. In the foreground you gaze over the Stariski Creek valley. Located at the end of a private driveway you will find a large plush and cozy cabin perfect for enjoying Alaska in all seasons.

Located a few miles north of Anchor Point we are about twenty minutes north of Homer or fifteen minutes south of Ninilchick.

Choose from countless options for salmon and halibut fishing in either direction. This is a retreat from which you can embark on daily excursions to go fishing, wildlife viewing, hiking, clamming, or flight seeing, Rainy days are perfect to visit the Islands and Oceans Visitor Center, the Pratt Museum or meander the shops and art galleries of Homer.

If you want a break from it all this is a fabulous place to sit and read a book, write a book, paint, grill salmon or halibut and contemplate life. On a clear day dinner on the deck is unforgettable.

Bald eagles frequently are soaring overhead. Moose are occasional visitors to the yard. Other wildlife sighted from the house include black bear, ermine, river and sea otters, harlequin ducks, gulls, yellowlegs, belted kingfishers, loons, harbor seals, murres, oldsquaw, scoters, Steller's jays, chickadees, kinglets, warblers.

About Kelly

We have been coming to Alaska for thirty years to visit family and enjoy the spectacular scenery and wildlife. Our kids talk about our time in Alaska all year and look forward all winter to returning.

Kelly purchased this house in 1999

Why Kelly chose Anchor Point

We love to spend time in Alaska every year. The views, the wildlife, and the experiences create memories to last a lifetime. This house provides solitude and a million dollar view. Good proximity to fishing, hiking, and the charm of Homer.

What makes this house unique

Far enough off the paved roads to be quiet and peaceful, yet close enough to be easily accessible.

Jim and Kelly have the most beautiful stay you could ask for. 20 miles from Homer, but away from "everyone". Saw mother moose and her 2 babies up the driveway. We had 1 single moose come up to the lawn and up the driveway at 1030pm. Eagles galore. Pictures can't do this place justice. The inside was beautiful and the place was clean. Would recommend this stay totally! Thanks Jim and Kelly

Very nice cabin/house with great location. View is breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week here. We had lots of space with a large family area for entertainment. The view was spectacular and the property was far enough off the highway to feel secluded! We will definitely be returning.

Kenai Peninsula secluded retreat

  • 4 of 5

awesome property, spectacular views, very quiet and relaxing, well equipped. We were sad that the hot tub was not working and we had to buy bottled water as the water on the property is well water with a very strong iron taste.
