About Kim Winslow

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!

Kim Winslow purchased this cabin in 1983

Why Kim Winslow chose Kenai Peninsula

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!)

What makes this cabin unique

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!

Beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful log cabin. It was clean, well stocked and there was plenty of space for all of us. The view was amazing and the homeowner very kind. The only reason for not giving five stars is because you are not alone on this property. In the house itself, yes, but the homeowner stays in a RV parked behind the house and other family members live on the second story of the garage. Their vehicles share the same parking area and you will see them walking around outside from the log cabin windows. This did not really take away from our experience, but it was a bit of a surprise upon our arrival.

Our party of four really enjoyed our stay at Eric and Kim's home. The history of building the home, the attention to detail and the view were all great. I look forward to renting again.

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great! A little out of town, beautiful view of the bay. The house was nice and big, with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for our group. The log cabin has a great back story and is beautifully made. Also, the host was great, I would definitely recommend this place!
