'The Moose Lodge' is a beautiful log building that sleeps 8. The classy rustic decor creates a very special atmosphere. The loft area has a Queen Bed and ensuite. There is a Queen size day bed on the main floor. A spiral staircase leads down to a spacious bedroom in the basement with 2 twin beds. The stair well room has additional sleeping options, The fully equipped kitchen includes a partially stocked pantry. Large windows and decks ensure that you enjoy the ever changing moods of the ocean and mountains.
You may see moose wander through the yard, eagles flying overhead, seals and sea otters swimming in front of your living room windows.
The Bears Den, an adjacent cabin, that can be booked for an additional $75 per night, has a Queen bed on the main floor and a sleeping loft upstairs (great for the kids!). The den occupants have their own full bathroom. Kitchen facilities include refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot and hot plate.
Because of the 20 foot unstable bluff on the front edge of the property, there is unfortunately no direct access to the beach. It can be accessed by car 1 mile east. But really the best sandy beaches are Mariner Park (2 miles away, first right on the Spit Road) or Bishops Beach (4 miles away accessed through Old Towne).

We stayed in over Thanksgiving and couldn't have had a better time. We had nine people, from ages one to 80, and all fit comfortably in the house and cabin. The accommodations were perfect - warm and cozy and the world's best view. Also, Ruth is wonderful! Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
The property was awesome with beautiful views. We had the additional cabin which slept 2 of our party and that worked out fine. Cabin was stocked appropriately for essentials and also was clean. The beds were comfortable. The only concern we had were the spiral stairs down to the additional rooms were narrow with a tight curve which made it semi difficult for a person in our party with a bad leg. Otherwise we were very pleased with the cabin and would definitely recommend.
Beautiful spot with true cabin character
We had a destination wedding here. Ruth went above and beyond to accommodate us, even when I made an error in the dates! The property is rustic but has modern conveniences. It feels cozy yet has lots of sleeping options. We have beautiful wedding photos and memories.
Great place to stay in Homer!
Great view and place to stay during the visit to Homer! We had plenty of room for our family of 5 and enjoyed the nice accommodations!
Perfect vacation rental
We loved our stay here, easy, no nonsense check-in and access. Lots of provisions in the pantry so you didn't have to purchase everything for cooking. Two bathrooms made it nice for our group of 5 to shower up. Our adult son who ended up sleeping on one of the twin beds downstairs said he wasn't comfortable. But that bed did have a memory foam pad on it. My husband and I chose the king bed in the basement and it was nice and cool and room darkening shades for sleeping but the loft area was the most beautiful and we only chose the basement because the loft didn't have shades. My son and his gf slept there and didn't seem to mind the lack of shades. So I would say the place is great for two couples and 2-4 children. Elderly may have difficulty with either stairway, especially the spiral one, but there is also a hideabed in the living room, but no blinds there. The windows there are large and let in lots of of daylight, great during day, not great at night. It would be nice to have more pillows too, but we are pillow hoarders. Ruth stopped in to meet us and see if we needed anything, she was very nice and accomodating.
There are two bikes and also a lock for them on the property, that was great, if you aren't a runner you can still get out and explore. We were on the busy road and there is no shoulder for running, but we did fine, the traffic was courteous overall. We were 5-10 min. From the Spit, groceries, restaurants, gas station... no problems finding anything at all! We would definitely recommend this cabin for anyone coming into Homer on an Alaska getaway. Thank you Ruth!
Oh yes, we talked about replacing that one bed ... better get with it. Wish he had chosen the other one.
Sorry folks, it would be about impossible to have shades on all the high triangular windows, and our summer days are SO long. The best we can do is provide eye shades. Not a problem in the winter ...
Alaska at it's finest!
Log home was gorgeous, beautifully decorated and in pristine condition. Property manager was exceptionally attentive and made us feel very welcomed. Location and view were amazing - cannot wait to visit again! If I could give this 6 stars I would!
The property is just one mile from the base of the famous 4 mile long Homer Spit and Mariner Park Beach. The seperated pathway is great for walking, biking (rentals available from Homer Saw) and rollerblading. The End-of-the-Road is a mecca for tourist shops and galleries, cafes and restaurants. The picturesque Homer Harbor offers access to Fishing Charters, Wildlife Cruises and hiking in Kachemak Bay State Park.
