Comfortable and cozy...4 Br/2-1/2 Ba Log Home with Views of Kachemak Bay!

Wild Shore Escape is a tri-level authentic log home built in 1983.We are available year round for rental! The three floors are connected by an elegant steel spiral staircase. It provides that cozy Alaskan ambiance with wide open views of Kachemak Bay and the Homer Spit.

Our cabin gives you the rustic Alaskan feel while providing modern creature comforts. If the weather is rainy, you will feel snug and comfy here. If the weather is nice you can open up the french doors and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful views.

We provide 4 bedrooms including a loft with a 1/2 bath. A continual spiral staircase connects the three floors. There is a fully equipped kitchen to meet your cooking needs while staying in Homer. The wrap around deck provides the perfect place to have your morning coffee or an evening barbeque.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: My husband, Eric and I bought our property with a dream of building a log cabin in 1983. As our family grew, so did the cabin! Eric is a commercial Salmon fisherman, so while he is busy with the Fishing Season, I run the vacation rental! We are happy to share the cabin with you, our special guests!

Why the Owner Chose Fritz Creek, AK, USA:
We love our location because it is out of the hustle bustle of town, but just far enough. It is a short 10-15 minute drive from Homer and the World famous Spit! And only 1/2 mile from Fritz Creek General store/deli, and The Homestead Fine Dining restaurant. (We highly recommend both!)

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
You will fall in love with our views of the Bay and Mountains in the daytime and the twinkling lights on the spit at night. It is quietly situated away from the hustle and bustle of life. Sit out on the deck and take in the beauty and clean air!
