New, beautiful, Scandinavian-influenced, cozy, 360 sq ft one-room cabin is modern, with all of the amenities needed for your perfect weekend getaway or week-long stay in Homer. Located next to the owners' house, tucked away from the road, on an acre and a half in a subdivision overlooking Homer, the views are fabulous of Kachemak Bay, Cook Inlet, and the volcanoes. Few places in Homer have views of both Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet. Hardwood floors and Jøtul "wood" (gas) stove give the cabin a warm and cozy feeling. Majestic large windows bring the views into the cabin.
The cabin is consistent with the "tiny house" concept, providing everything you need efficiently in a small space.
The one-room cabin sleeps two in a queen-sized bed, with a gel mattress and three-inch memory foam topper. The luxurious cotton sheets, down pillows and comforter make this bed truly comfortable. If the bed is too soft, the topper can be removed or replaced with a two-inch topper.
Ask about the possibility for extra guests. We have a Pack-and-Play for your baby or toddler, a twin blow-up mattress, and a foam twin mattress. An extra fee of $20 per stay per person is charged for more than two people.
The kitchen is fully-equipped with a two-burner stove, a small refrigerator, microwave, and counter-top oven. All of the pots, pans, dishes, and utensils you need are provided. There is no dishwasher.
There is a full bathroom with shower, sink, and toilet. The dining room table seats six people comfortably.
The cabin is located a 2 minute walk from a sandhill crane nesting area. From May into September, sandhill cranes can be seen overhead, walking along the street, or strolling through our property. Moose are regularly seen year-round walking though the property or in the neighborhood as well as eagles perched in the trees by the cabin. A walk on the streets in the neighborhood and an undeveloped subdivision offers majestic views of Kachemak Bay. When you are ready to walk the beach, go out to eat, get some groceries, or explore Homer, it is only an eight-minute drive into Homer and another ten minutes to the Homer Spit and Harbor for fishing, kayaking, and boating.
We have fast wifi and good cellular coverage in the cabin. There is no TV.
Take your breakfast or dinner outside on the deck to enjoy the spectacular views and at some times of the year fantastic sunsets over Cook Inlet with views of the volcanoes.
Love an authentic Finnish sauna? For those guests desiring a sauna, we have a traditional Finnish wood-burning sauna. For an extra fee of $35 your hosts will warm the sauna up for you with 24-hour notice.
Coffee and teas are provided for your convenience.
Have a boat or RV? No problem -- there is ample parking space for a smaller RV. Please ask for prior approval.
Pets are no longer allowed.
