About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-11)

This five bedroom log home is nicely handcrafted from 10" diameter Alaskan spruce logs. It has a cozy, in the wilderness feel, with large picture windows over looking Kachemak Bay. A center wood stove provides warmth and blends nicely with the surrounding hand carved notches and beams. The kitchen is large and accommodating.
The dining, living room area has many Alaskan books and games, and two couches to enjoy the glacier and mountain views. The large deck is available from the kitchen and dining room area and adds a fresh air, open view with table and gas bar-b-cue.

The upstairs has three bedrooms, one king, one double, and one with two single beds,
A full bath with double sink. The computer room is also on this top level and has Wi-Fi. There is a lovely hand made log queen bed on the main floor with the living area. It has a half bath. Downstairs there is another bedroom with a queen bed, view, and full bath with Jacuzzi. The down stairs level also has the TV room, pool table, and laundry facilities.

The yard has a fire pit in the center of a large lawn, with stumps to sit on while you watch the boats in the bay and the changing colors of the snowy mountains and glaciers tucked in the mountains across the bay. There is a tiny tree house with netting
all around for safety.
