Experience Homer in a cabin rental

Alaska cabins in Homer are suitable for what just about everything else in this city is suitable for, and that's fishing. As the Halibut Fishing Capital of the World, Homer has seemingly endless fishing opportunities for people working commercially and fishing for recreation. Because of this, many of the local cabin rentals are located near the coast. Some even come equipped with fishing gear that you're free to use for the duration of your stay.

The outstanding Kachemak Bay State Park is home to the Grewingk Glacier Lake Trail, a 3-mile route that winds through Sitka spruce forests and towering cottonwood groves.
