Luxury Cabin in Halibut Cove

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin


About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

Luxury cabin located on the highest point in Halibut Cove. Stunning, 360 degree views of Halibut Cove, Homer, Glacier Spit, Pool Peak, and the head of Kachemak Bay. Enjoy the solitude of this remote and secluded cabin, and catch a glimpse of soaring eagles and whales swimming in Kachemak Bay. Access to the cabin is by walking via a moderately-challenging hiking trail (however, we will transport you and your supplies to the cabin when you first arrive in Halibut Cove on the Kachemak Bay Ferry, M/V Danny J or M/V Stormbird).

The cabin has incredible views from every room! Comfortable, queen-sized bed in sleeping loft, full kitchen with breakfast bar, indoor bathroom with shower and flush-toilet, and large deck with chairs and table where you can watch the sunrise and sunset, and wildlife.

The Saltry Restaurant, Halibut Cove Experience Gallery, The Cove Gallery and the boardwalks are a 20 minute walk from the cabin. Bring your fishing pole and cast for Dolly Varden and salmon from the Isthmus Beach, or wander the boardwalks of quaint Halibut Cove.

Transportation can be arranged through the Kachemak Bay Ferry, aboard the M/V Danny J, or if you plan on a Saturday or Tuesday arrival, you may be able to travel on the M/V Stormbird, for a fee. Please let me know if transport via the M/V Stormbird is planned so I can ensure seating for you.

Beautiful lodging and place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon. We couldn't have asked for a more magical spot to wind down and relax. The cottage is very private, yet everyone on the island is friendly and welcoming. We really appreciated the time to explore Halibut Cove and the surrounding Katchemak Bay State Park. Tracy and Vince are great hosts, helpful with logistics, and available for communication. We would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for a special wilderness retreat.

Beauty, views and comfort

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit to this Halibut Cove cabin. The views are unparalleled - mountain ranges and glaciers on one side, the bay and a lagoon on another side. We watched whales breaching each night from the highest spot on the property and then sat on the deck to watch the sun "set" each night.

This cabin has a fully stocked modern kitchen for cooking, it also has an amazingly comfortable bed upstairs with views of mountains and water in 3 directions. There are shades on the windows to block the light at night so you can sleep. The bathroom was clean, stocked with soap, lotion, and shampoo and conditioner. There's running hot and cold water - which not all rental cabins in Halibut Cove have. Our hosts, Tracey and Vince, met us at the ferry and offered to take us and our bags up to the cabin. The cabin is about a 20 to 25 minute walk away from the ferry dock and Saltry restaurant. We ate lunch or dinner at the Saltry each day and cooked the rest of our meals at the cabin. If you enjoy solitude, spectacular scenery and are content to sit and read/eat/drink/cook/converse when not hiking or kayaking - this place is for you.

BEAUTIFUL setting and wonderful people

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went here for our honeymoon after our wedding. What a wonderful place to unwind and get away from it all (barely have Verizon service)! The view and atmosphere took our breaths away. The cabin is in tip-top condition and possesses all the necessary cooking supplies. We stopped at Safeway in Homer before we caught the Bay Roamers water taxi over to the cove. We ate dinner each night at The Saltry. The food was superb, a little repetitive after 4 nights, would have brought food to grill one night if I knew the grill was so nice. Tracey was very helpful coordinating our taxi rides and kayak rental. It's like a mini travel agency since everyone in cove knows everyone else and works together. It's a good 20+ minute walk from the Saltry to the cabin with a steep incline, fine for us but would definitely not work for some. But luckily there is only 1 road and it was light until 11pm! Making walks back after dinner easy. Highly recommended.
