This would be the perfect winter retreat for someone who would like to be productive in a tranquil setting (calling all writers and artists!), or for someone who would like to experience Homer, Alaska, during the winter. Homer offers fantastic cross country ski trails, one of which is only 5 minutes away. Enjoy art galleries, fine dining, and even winter fishing! There is also backcountry skiing across Kachemak Bay for the more adventurous. You might even see the Northern Lights during your stay! Our 1400 square foot custom home is beautiful and open with a vaulted cedar ceiling. Light pours in a 5- foot skylight at the peak of the ceiling, 21 feet above you. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are all completely open- great for families and friends interacting while relaxing or cooking a meal in our upscale kitchen. All our appliances are stainless steal and less than 1 year old. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a closet. The second bedroom has a full bed and a set of drawers.

Interaction with GuestsWe will be out of the state from Dec. 23- Jan. 31, 2015. There will be someone on call in case you need assistance. The NeighborhoodOur house is 9 miles east of Homer in an area called Fritz Creek. It's very quiet, and most of the lots are at least 4 acres, so you will have plenty of privacy during your stay. We live off of Greer Rd, which is paved and maintained well during the winter. Our next door neighbor owns a snow plowing business, so you will be at the top of the list if we get a heavy snow and our driveway needs to be plowed. This cost is covered in the monthly rate. Getting AroundYou will need to rent a 4-wheel drive vehicle to get around during the winter. Please contact us before making a car reservation to discuss the most economical option. Other Things to NoteOur home is exceptionally efficient and will not need much to heat. We have huge south facing windows, and on some days, the sun during the day is almost enough to heat the entire home! Our home is super cozy and comfortable. We have a wood burning stove and a direct vent oil heater. Our home is also a show home for Mandala Homes, a prefab builder from Nelson, B.C. building expertly crafted, meaningful dwellings.

      A spacious little hideaway awaits you. A scenic drive away from downtown Homer. The recently remodeled two bedroom and living room offer a relaxing, tranquil space to unwind after a day of adventuring or simply to take solace in while enjoying the surrounding natural beauty. East End area, besides it's scenic drive along the hill crest, offers you the amazing Homestead Restaurant and,closer to town, Bear Creek Winery, both come highly recommended. Also recommended are Wasabi's,Vita's Thai Food, and nearby Fritz Creek general store/post office, which is great for freshly baked deserts and fabulous deli sandwich.Our abode comes fully furnished, satellite TV,and WiFi to expand your relaxation options. The porch out front is a lovely spot for morning coffee or tea. A BBQ is available for use well. Whether you need a place to rest and unwind at the end of a long day on the road or water, Fire and ice is a cozy place to land.

          Sailwood Adventures is your connection to private wilderness lodging in backcountry Alaska. Surrounded by thick forest, La Caleta (meaning “safe cove” in Spanish) is a clean, comfortable step into rural, waterfront living. This cottage was designed to bring people together to enjoy the protection and whimsey of this small cove. The main building of La Caleta is open two level layout with sleeping quarters upstairs. The lower portion is devoted for the living room and dining room with full kitchen. A large wrap around deck joins the separate bath house which houses a shower and sauna. A fleet of Sea Kayaks and safety gear are all a part of your stay at La Caleta. Sea Kayaks are a dream for traveling along the shore watching eagles and bears forage for food. The tempo of the tides and nature rejuvenate your spirit and allow time for wandering. The water access provides many hours of exploring by foot or Kayak towards the head of Sadie Cove. Relaxing activities as tidepooling, beach combing, clam and mussel gathering, sailing, fishing, and cooking fresh meals allow quality time with family and friends. Sailwood Adventures can provide total support for your trip. We can help with all the logistics, from water taxi transportation, to state park access, complete with guiding services for hiking, kayaking and Mt. biking. If a self designed wilderness adventure with the comforts of seaside living sound interesting to you, contact us for further details. Our home is on the south side of Kachemak Bay, in a very remote setting that is accessible only by boat or float plane. It is a private setting in Sadie cove, with kayaks, beaches to roam and scenery to die for. Relaxing, cooking together, walking, exploring and soaking up nature are some of the highlights. There is fishing, sailing, paddling and lots of playing to do at La Caleta. In the evening be sure to enjoy the delightful woodburning sauna and listen to the silence. We provide the water taxi service for your visit, you can leave your car at the harbor.

Jetted tub with sea salt and essential oil(URL HIDDEN) ****ABOUT THE HOME**** Our home was custom built by us in 2006. We finished the renovation to separate the first and second floors into separate units int he spring of 2015. The rental apartment is the full top floor (1200sq. ft.). It has one good sized bedroom, one "to die for " (bathroom according to guests), an open living, kitchen and dining floor plan and an outside deck to the West of the house with a view to the West and South. **Wheelchair/walker friendly** While our home is not handicapped accessible by ADA Guidelines, all doorways and the kitchen cabinet to cabinet distances are 36". If you need a wheelchair or walker for general mobility but can stand to move to a commode and to wash up at the sink, you will be able to navigate the home. The shower in the bathroom has no curb. It has a slightly raised arch to keep water in the pan area but is easy to navigate for persons who cannot lift feet very high off the floor. **The Main Living Space** The entry, dining area, living room, kitchen and sitting room are all open to each other. **Kitchen** The 5 burner gas cook top is located in the island and provides a view of the bay and mountains while you cook. A full sized refrigerator provides plenty of room for perishables. Other conveniences include an eye level oven that can be used as a standard oven or convection oven, microwave, toaster, french press, coffee grinder, carafe, hand mixer, pots pans, baking ware, cutlery, storage containers, etc. The floors are 3/4" purple heart hardwood and the home has radiant floor heat throughout with area rugs under the furniture to protect the floors and pamper your feet. The dishwasher, clothes washer and clothes dryer are all elevated for convenience when loading and unloading. Laundry and dishwasher soap are provided. **The Bathroom** The bathroom is custom tiled and has custom rock work on the shower floor, across the lavatory vanity, and around the jet tub. The rocks were collected from the beach here in Homer and we cut the large tiles to "marry" with the edges of the rock work. It is really quite lovely. The beach rocks are great for massaging your tired feet while you shower after a day of hiking, fishing and beach-combing! Or mayhap... a soak in the jet tub while taking in the view is just the thing to sooth a vacationing soul? ****SLEEPING ACCOMMODATIONS**** There is a queen sized memory foam bed in the bedroom (room for 2) and a large picture window with a view of the mountains and bay. A queen sofa bed in the sitting area adjacent to the living room provides sleeping accommodations for 2 additional guests for a total of 4 maximum. An additional 2 picture windows and a large window to the West provide a panoramic view from the living area. I could go on and on but in the interest of time and not being too chatty I'll just say... really, you just have to experience it to appreciate it. We believe you will be very pleased indeed! Guest Access**** Your Privacy is Our Policy**** You have a private entry by way of the deck and the entire top floor is yours. Our home is on 5 acres at the very end of the street and you are welcome to go anywhere on the outside grounds you wish. We hope to install a fire pit this summer and you are welcome to join us whenever we have a fire lit. We will also begin working on a system of short trails this summer. ****Studio TEN Cabin on site working fused glass studio**** I hope you will come and visit me (Tanya) in my Studio anytime I am in. It is located just across the yard from the main house. Just knock before entering as I work with large sheets of glass and surprises that startle can lead to injury. I hope to begin offering lessons in fused glass to guests in the summer of 2017. Interaction with GuestsWe will make every effort to meet you in person when you arrive or as soon as we return if we are out on errands when you get here. Just in case we cannot be there to meet you or if you arrive after 6 PM and we are not home, you will be provided with a combination for the door lock. These combinations are changed between every guest stay for you protection. We operate on the philosophy that you are coming to Alaska to relax and get away. To that end we try and be as unobtrusive as possible once you are checked in. We do live in the downstairs suite, and are available whenever we are on the property should you need anything. You will undoubtedly see one or both of us out in the yard from time to time doing chores, yard work, etc. If you do see us out and about in the yard please do come and say hi, and maybe have a cup of coffee a glass of tea. The NeighborhoodOur vacation home is located on 5 acres approximately 9 miles to the East of Homer. We are at the end of Newell Court. The road dead ends at our place so there is no through traffic past our house. The property is treed with a mixture of White, black and blue spruce and alders. Blueberries, currants, high bush cranberries, lowbush cranberries, and watermelon berries can all be found in late August and September if growing conditions are just right. On most days from our deck and the guest suite you can see 4 glaciers, nearly the entire bay and the spit. On really clear days you can see to the inlet and even see 2 of the volcanoes across the inlet. The neighborhood is made up of retired couples and families with children from 2 years old to early teens. There is a mix of year-round and summer only residents on our street. Fritz Creek General Store is located a short 3 minutes from our home. It is a one stop deli, grocery with movie rentals, Post Office, gas station and liquor store. The food is great and the people are awesome. Just across the street from the general store is the Homestead Restaurant, a favorite fine dining establishment of travelers and locals alike! For more entertainment, dining and recreation options, Homer is a short 15 minute drive. Getting AroundTo travel here you will need a car. If you are flying, cars can be rented at the airport or Adventure car rentals. We have never rented a car from either one so regretfully cannot give opinions on the quality or service of either. I may also be able to pick you up at the airport with enough advance notice, but we are 10 miles West of town so you will need some type of transportation. Taxis do come out here, but that can get a bit expensive for anything other than a trip to town to pick up a rental car. Other Things to NoteQuiet hours are between 10PM and 7AM. Please keep noise down during these hours. Please keep use of the jetted tub to a minimum before 7AM and after 10PM as it can be heard throughout the lower level. TV/BLUE RAY The house contains a 50-inch flat-screen Smart TV and Blue-Ray HD/DVD player for your entertainment use. We have a small library of movies and you can rent movies at your own cost from Fritz Creek General Store, Safeway and Millie's Videos in town. The guest agrees not disassemble, remove or tamper with any of the TV /DVD players or Internet connections. Regarding the TV reception. We do not guarantee that you will be able to get a TV signal. It is part of the "Alaska Experience" that TV and cell phones signals can sometimes be sketchy at best, especially outside the city. 95% of the time service is fine. However, we do not guarantee these services as part of this agreement. We have provided a 50" Vizio Smart TV with DVD player so you can enjoy movies and when available you may even get a TV signal ;-). We have a small library of DVDs and you can rent DVDs at Safeway and at Millie's Video in town. LEAVE ONE/ TAKE ONE LIBRARY We have provided a small "Leave One Take One" library for your reading enjoyment. While it is not necessary, if you have a book you can leave when you take one it would be greatly appreciated. If not, and you are in the middle of an enjoyable read, by all means take it with you! There are also books in the library that are to stay with the house, these include a small selection of children's books. WATER AND SEWER The sewer system is an onsite a septic system. We have a high mineral and tannin content in the sub surface water. This gives the water a slight yellow cast that is only noticeable when filing the jet tub, it is perfectly safe. The home is supplied with drinking water via an onsite well. House water is filtered twice through a water softening system and the DRINKING WATER is filtered a third time to remove the salt from the softener. We have provided 2 pitchers for extra drinking water storage. THE SEWER: Due to the limited lifespan of septic systems, We kindly request that the Guest(s) conserve water as much as possible during their stay. Your assistance in conserving water and thereby protecting our septic system are greatly appreciated and will assist in making it possible for us to continue to offer our home as a summer rental. DO NOT FLUSH anything other than toilet paper down the toilet. No feminine products, paper towels, Kleenex etc. should be flushed at any time. If it is found that any of these products, or other improper materials, have been flushed and clog the septic system, the cost of the damages will be the responsibility of the Guest(s). There is a garbage can right by the toilet for non-flushable items.! WiFi There is WiFi available throughout the house via wireless router and secured network. Network name and password will be provided to you upon arrival. Alaska signals can be problematic at times and we cannot guarantee uninterrupted service of the internet or TV signals, therefore, this service is provided as a convenience only and is not integral to the agreement. No refund of rents shall be given for outages, content, lack of content, speed, access problems, lack of knowledge of use, or personal preferences with regard to internet service or TV. FRESH SALAD GREENS FROM THE GARDEN During the summer months (approximately the middle of May until the middle of September, we have a vegetable garden and are very happy to share fresh greens and anything else we have extra of with our guests. Just let us know if you would like us to harvest some for you!

This short 13 minute drive is just enough time to decompress from your exciting day and relax with your family. Hill Street is a quiet gravel road with a handful of neighbors whose homes are out of sight. Moose and plethora of birds, including Sandhill Cranes, are also our neighbors. Fritz Creek General Store is just a mile down the hill from our house. Here you can pick up anything you forgot in town, grab a delicious pizza, or pick up a six-pack. Just across the street from Fritz Creek General Store is the Homestead Restaurant, which offers five star dining, specializing in steak and seafood. Getting AroundYou will want to have your own car or a rental car. Public transportation is few and far between in Homer, though the taxis will pick up and drop off. Other Things to NoteThe third bed is a mattress on the floor in our son's room. It probably would be more comfortable for a child. There is also a crib if you have a baby. We do not have cable TV. We have a smart TV with minimal access to shows and a small collection of DVD's that can be watched in the downstairs guest bedroom. We have water delivered and would appreciate all the water conservation you can do. The hot water takes a little while to reach the end point. Please be gentle with our septic system, meaning nothing but paper please:) The hot tub is empty and not in use at this time, so sorry!

          The SpaceEnjoy the midnight sun in style. You can have a summer day anywhere, but the summer nights in Alaska have a magic of their own. The place is 9.5 miles east of town, and there is no public transportation. Taxis to town are $25 each way. We call our place "The Sanctuary." Moose are often born here in May, and come and go. Sandhill Cranes, Eagles, Ravens and many other bird species are often seen here. Great Horned Owls and Wilson's Snipes can be heard at night. A small creek runs along the property, and there are great views of Kachemak Bay, the Homer Spit, Kenai Mountains and glaciers, from the lawn, camp kitchen and picnic area. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. Lounge around the fire pit with wood provided, and watch the sunset turn into sunrise, or watch the moon travel above the mountains. The full moon always passes right in front of the property on its journey over the mountains and bay. A picnic table, gas grill, coleman stove, small fridge, cooking utensils, and everything you need for outdoor food preparation and dining are provided. We have a very limited water supply, so I prefer for campers to use the outhouse, located a few yards below the end of the driveway, although there are indoor bathrooms available if needed. There is a covered, lighted deck off the sauna porch for cooking, or hanging out. Extra blankets, water, soap, shampoo and towels are provided inside the sauna. WiFi is available from camp area and house deck. There are electric outlets in the sauna building, and guests are welcome in the living room to plug in and charge your devices, enjoy the view, or visit and look at maps and books about Alaska and Alaskan artifacts. The garden has places for 2 groups of campers, so it doesn't get too crowded. There are three guest rooms in the house. We have a Finnish style wood-fired sauna building, paneled inside with local cottonwood, with a secluded view of the bay and Homer Spit. Three tiers of benches easily accommodates 6 or more people. You can reserve the sauna stocked with wood, water, locally-made soap, essential oils for scented steam, shampoo and extra towels, for $25 for 3 hours. You can light it yourself if I'm at work. Detailed instructions are posted. I will be glad to heat it up for you if I am around. It needs about an hour to pre-heat, 2 hours in winter. Guest AccessCampers are welcome to hang out on the house deck and living room where you can pick up WiFi or just relax and enjoy the view. Firewood gathering is not permitted. Dogs must be kept under control or on a leash so as not to disturb wildlife or neighbors. Raspberry picking is encouraged late in the summer. I have limited access to water delivery. There's an outhouse with a nice view, a typical Alaskan outdoor experience. I encourage campers to use the outhouse, although indoor bathroom access is fine if needed. Shower and laundry facilities are available in town at The Washboard for $6. Although we have to have water trucked in, if your vacation schedule makes it hard to get a shower while in town, let me know. Showers in the house are $5 and I can add that to your reservation. Or consider getting REALLY CLEAN by sweating, scrubbing and hydrating in the sauna. Interaction with GuestsMy interaction with guests varies, as I may be working in town. I like to let folks enjoy the space to themselves as much as possible. Sometimes I have friends over for cookouts, and we often love to work late in the garden, in the midnight sun. The NeighborhoodLocated in the Fritz Creek area. A quiet, rural neighborhood abounding with native wildlife, and country roads with breathtaking views that are peaceful enough for moonlight walks. The house is one of the original homes in the neighborhood. Most homes are on 2 and 5 acre lots. 1 mile west is the historic Fritz Creek "town center", with Fritz Creek Store, originally built in 1954 with horse power and used as a community center. It's now a small grocery store, post office, liquor store and kitchen with pizza, baked goods, soups, sandwiches, vegetarian dishes, and more. There are a couple tables, and it's a perfect stop for picnic treats. Across the street from "The Fritz" is the log cabin Homestead Restaurant, operating since 1961, offering seafood, steaks, glacier views, a small cocktail bar, and featuring local fine art. Also nearby is the 27 acre Alaska Perfect Peony farms, with it's 1947 log cabin, peony fields and Alaska hardy perennial garden trails. Ask about the trails at the greenhouse. Further East you'll find McNeil Canyon Meats for game and local livestock processing, McNeil Canyon School, with it's playground and surrounding wilderness trails, connects to Eveline State Recreation Site, located off Alpine Meadows Drive. The 80-acre site offers a network of trails traversing mostly gentle terrain, with scenic views of rolling hills, Kachemak Bay, the Kenai Mountains, and wonderful views of Doroshin and Portlock Glaciers. The Eveline trails offers spectacular wild flower hiking in the summer and is groomed for skiing in winter, snowshoers and well-mannered dogs are welcome. On-site parking, outhouse, picnic table. Getting AroundThe place is almost ten miles East of Downtown Homer. Close to the main road. It's about $25 each way for a taxi from my place to downtown. Hitchhiking is common. The only public transportation is in mid June to mid August; Homer Trolley runs around downtown and the spit. $12 for a hop on, hop off Day Pass, 11am-6pm. Taxis are available around town. Other Things to NoteLaundry facilities are available in town. Blow dryer, ironing board and steam iron available.

                  A spacious little hideaway awaits you. A scenic drive away from downtown Homer. The recently remodeled two bedroom and living room offer a relaxing, tranquil space to unwind after a day of adventuring or simply to take solace in while enjoying the surrounding natural beauty. East End area, besides it's scenic drive along the hill crest, offers you the amazing Homestead Restaurant and,closer to town, Bear Creek Winery, both come highly recommended. Also recommended are Wasabi's,Vita's Thai Food, and nearby Fritz Creek general store/post office, which is great for freshly baked deserts and fabulous deli sandwich.Our abode comes fully furnished, satellite TV,and WiFi to expand your relaxation options. The porch out front is a lovely spot for morning coffee or tea. A BBQ is available for use well. Whether you need a place to rest and unwind at the end of a long day on the road or water, Fire and ice is a cozy place to land.

                  Sailwood Adventures is your connection to private wilderness lodging in backcountry Alaska. Surrounded by thick forest, La Caleta (meaning “safe cove” in Spanish) is a clean, comfortable step into rural, waterfront living. This cottage was designed to bring people together to enjoy the protection and whimsey of this small cove. The main building of La Caleta is open two level layout with sleeping quarters upstairs. The lower portion is devoted for the living room and dining room with full kitchen. A large wrap around deck joins the separate bath house which houses a shower and sauna. A fleet of Sea Kayaks and safety gear are all a part of your stay at La Caleta. Sea Kayaks are a dream for traveling along the shore watching eagles and bears forage for food. The tempo of the tides and nature rejuvenate your spirit and allow time for wandering. The water access provides many hours of exploring by foot or Kayak towards the head of Sadie Cove. Relaxing activities as tidepooling, beach combing, clam and mussel gathering, sailing, fishing, and cooking fresh meals allow quality time with family and friends. Sailwood Adventures can provide total support for your trip. We can help with all the logistics, from water taxi transportation, to state park access, complete with guiding services for hiking, kayaking and Mt. biking. If a self designed wilderness adventure with the comforts of seaside living sound interesting to you, contact us for further details.

                    The SpaceA few things that make my place unique: My 5 acres is part of the famous 600 acre Kilcher Homestead, as seen on Alaska the Last Frontier. I am the 7th of the 8 children; Atz and Otto are my brothers. There is a special feeling here vibrating in the land, and why our parents picked this spot. The atmosphere feels so pure, so silent, so wild yet comfortable. Drive in access and no issues with mosquitos!!! You get to meet me and maybe other family members as you cruise around. If you stay 3 or more nights, we include a free awesome organic dinner with us. Homer is 25 minutes away, with oodles of things to do there: great restaurants, a lap pool, fun shopping, etc We have quite good cell reception here. Lots of options to enjoy your stay... Here are my other listings all on my Kilcher Homestead property called "Miracle Meadow": Man Cave - 8x8 space https://airbnb.com/rooms/14113283?s=41&user_id=48618334&ref_device_id=8ad1ecad3f0e44552ec7875e4602c9eb221a7b7a Digit Detox retreat - in the "Lighthouse" with full retreat private personalized schedule: meals, cooking class, Ayurvedic consult, yoga, etc https://airbnb.com/rooms/15227184?s=41&user_id=48618334&ref_device_id=8ad1ecad3f0e44552ec7875e4602c9eb221a7b7a Glamping 8x8 tent https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/12185055?s=dnwJW5vp&sug=50 Guest AccessAccess to outdoor hot shower, screened-in outdoor kitchen including use of dishware, spices and other cooking items, outhouse, hammock, hanging chair under birch, picnic table, campfire, pond area, 10 minute walk to beach, berries if in season, endless walks in all directions, relaxing pristine feeling. The outdoor kitchen has running water. Please note that we are "off the grid", which means no electricity or wifi. That's in town! Or up at our Homestead cabin we have wifi. We provide heat and USB charging unit, and a lantern (though you don't need light here in summer!) Endless walks on beach, private tours of Kilcher homestead, meet the Kilchers, meet Nature. Interaction with GuestsI interact with guests as little or much as they want, because I live here in my yurt. So depending on what project I am working on, they would see me more or less. I am happy to answer all questions and be a great host, resource and friend. The NeighborhoodWhat's not to love about my neighborhood? Moose, beautiful flora, clouds, eagles souring, beach walks, and occasionally maybe meet a human?! Getting AroundDrive in to site. If you don't have a car, a taxi can bring you for about $30 from the airport or from Homer. Conceivably you could just fly into Homer and not rent a car; just take a cab for groceries, then to here and stay immersed in beauty for days and days! I hardly ever want to go do anything else because this spot has it all! Other Things to NoteCome experience this little piece of Heaven on Earth! If you have ever liked camping because it puts you in touch with Nature - come here and be comfy while you bathe in Nature's blessings! No need for hardship: comfy mattress is provided, hot outdoor shower, full outdoor screened-in kitchen AND a lovely 12x12 living space! AND no mosquito issues here! And maybe watch a movie with us while we turn on our generator. Also a chance for you to unplug and get off your devices! Though we do offer USB charging unit, but no wifi.

                    The SpaceThere is a wood-fired swedish style sauna available for $25 for 3 hours. Stocked with wood, water, towels, soap, and essential oils for steaming. Message me if you would like to reserve the sauna. It takes about an hour to get nice and hot, longer in winter. I can light it if I'm around, otherwise there are detailed instructions posted in the dressing area. Guest AccessYou are welcome to use the campfire pit, barbeque grill, and hang out in the picnic area, a short walk down below the house. Please burn only the wood near the fire pit, not the split rounds near the sauna. Interaction with GuestsI work full time, 5 days a week. I may not be available when you check in. Please review directions and check in procedures before the day of your arrival and message me with questions. The NeighborhoodLocated in the Fritz Creek area. A quiet, rural neighborhood abounding with native wildlife, and country roads with breathtaking views that are peaceful enough for moonlight walks. The house is one of the original homes in the neighborhood. Most homes are on 2 and 5 acre lots. 1 mile west is the historic Fritz Creek "town center", with Fritz Creek Store, originally built in 1954 with horse power and used as a community center. It's now a small grocery store, post office, liquor store and kitchen with pizza, baked goods, soups, sandwiches, vegetarian dishes, and more. There are a couple tables, and it's a perfect stop for picnic treats. Across the street from "The Fritz" is the log cabin Homestead Restaurant, operating since 1961, offering seafood, steaks, glacier views, a small cocktail bar, and featuring local fine art. Also nearby is the 27 acre Alaska Perfect Peony farms, with it's 1947 log cabin, peony fields and Alaska hardy perennial garden trails. Ask about the trails at the greenhouse. Further East you'll find McNeil Canyon Meats for game and local livestock processing, McNeil Canyon School, with it's playground and surrounding wilderness trails, connects to Eveline State Recreation Site, located off Alpine Meadows Drive. The 80-acre site offers a network of trails traversing mostly gentle terrain, with scenic views of rolling hills, Kachemak Bay, the Kenai Mountains, and wonderful views of Doroshin and Portlock Glaciers. The Eveline trails offers spectacular wild flower hiking in the summer and is groomed for skiing in winter, snowshoers and well-mannered dogs are welcome. On-site parking, outhouse, picnic table. Getting AroundThe place is almost ten miles East of Downtown Homer. Close to the main road. It's about $25 each way for a taxi from my place to downtown. Hitchhiking is common. The only public transportation is in mid June to mid August; Homer Trolley runs around downtown and the spit. $12 for a hop on, hop off Day Pass, 11am-6pm. Taxis are available around town. Other Things to NoteThe cabin is on the owner's guesthouse property. My adult daughter and I live in the house. We host three guest rooms, and in summer, 2 tent camping spaces.

                    The SpaceThe circular design of a yurt dates back centuries. Harkening back through time, our 24 foot diameter yurt looks out over breathtaking views of Kachemak Bay, invoking memories of the past in a modern setting. Sit out on the deck and watch the sun rise and set with a cup of hot tea or other beverage of your choice, tea and coffee are provided. Step inside and make yourself at home: our full kitchen offers a refrigerator, stove, microwave and dining area. Relax on the couch and sleep soundly in the double bed. Do not let the Alaskan fall chill dampen your spirits, the yurt is quite warm and cozy because of the monitor heating. Inside you will also find a half bathroom, with a hot shower and private changing area. Right next to the yurt is a cute ad clean outhouse wired with light for those late night trips. Guest AccessDown a long driveway, the access is yours. Our yurt is in a quiet, private setting, though we are within a mile if needed. Interaction with GuestsWe can interact with you as little or as much as you would like; we can meet you to let you in or have it unlocked for you before you arrive. We are always very happy to chat as well if you have any questions! The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood offers all the joys of semi-rural Alaska. Ten miles from the heart of Homer, AK, you can see your neighbors through the alders and you may wake to moose in the driveway, yet you will find peace with the Kachemak Bay views and the sound of songbirds. Getting AroundTaxis and rental cars are available in Homer and our yurt is only fifteen minutes from Homer. Other Things to NotePlease be considerate of the fact that our water is from a cistern and has to be delivered. If you bring a dog, please pick up after him or her.

There is no one around for a mile to any side; our 600 acre homestead is bordered by a 500 foot Canyon, and my house site of 5 acres is right on the bluff overlooking Kachemak Bay with mountains and glaciers on the other side. We offer a hot outdoor shower, outhouse, and of course fresh clean bedding and towels are provided. The screened-in full kitchen offers barbecue, hot plate, pure drinking water, spices and oils to complement your own cooking. The bed is extra large Twin size, so best suitable for a single person, although an additional mattress could be put on the floor if necessary.

You're welcome to use our spices and oils to complement provisions that you bring to cook for yourself. For guests who stay three or more days, we invite you to one complementary organic home cooked meal with us. You also have access to hammocks, campfire, pool, and maybe a croquet set! Interaction with GuestsWe interact with guests as much or little as they like. We are busy and so you'll often see us going about our day doing Homestead projects. The NeighborhoodThe "neighborhood" consists of eagles, porcupine, occasional moose, and other critters. Occasionally you'll run into a human being here and there! The Kilcher beach is a short 15 minute walk where you can stroll for miles in solitude trolling for shells and rocks and views. You'll also maybe run into the cast of Alaska the Last (URL HIDDEN) family... You'll also have great adventures in the town of Homer: fishing excursions, wildlife center, the Spit with boardwalk cafes and shops, etc Getting AroundYou'll need to rent a car, preferably 4 wheel drive, so your adventurous spirit can let loose! We are about 25 minutes from the town of Homer, and even closer is Fritz Creek General Store with the best desserts in Homer, great pizza and soup, and a gas station. Other Things to NoteThis is our commonly owned 600 acre Kilcher Homestead, as seen on the hit reality TV show Alaska the Last Frontier. I have 5 acres which I share with select guests such as you: I don't accept just "anyone" into my meadow which I aptly named "Miracle Meadow". The purity of Nature in this spot is palpable and transformative. And because I only have two guest houses, you have your own quiet retreat experience, while able to venture into the "huge" town of Homer (pop 4000!) to go dine gourmet, explore the famous Homer Spit, hike across the Bay and much more to entertain yourself.

                    The SpaceWe are offering limited exclusive retreat time for selective guests to transform and rejuvenate. The space is a new 12 x 12' greenhouse kit, hence the name "Lighthouse". It is heated, has a desk, room for yoga, comfortable bed, lots of books to read, and in general it's a wonderful place to cozy up on either a sunny or cloudy day. The private outdoor hot shower is magical – overlooking the bay, glaciers and mountains. Fully equipped outdoor kitchen also is a delight to cook in; and part of this special retreat is that I will be giving you a private class in AyurVedic cooking. My husband is a dental consultant, as well as a Maharishi AyurVeda physician - he does traditional pulse diagnosis, and can evaluate your body type and help with minor and major health issues. We recommend a 3 day stay minimum. We include the following, which leaves plenty of time for you to relax, read, rejuvenate, hike, explore; including exploring the town of Homer, taking a water taxi across the bay to hike, etc. But the main intent of this particular listing is for people to spend more time in retreat rather than as Homer tourists. This is just for select guests with full one-on-one attention to just you. No one else. Even though the cost appears high for a "glamping" experience in my "Lighthouse" (normally listed at $75 for just the air bnb), our added retreat items are of great value. Here's what your daily cost offers: Nightly Base accommodation rate ($75) 1 hour: personal yoga each day ($30 value) 1 hour: tour with wild plant gathering plus private Ayurveda cooking class each day ($30) 1 Ayurvedic consultation ($140 value) and/or 1 Cranio Sacral session (pending if a couple or single person books) 2 meals per day ($50) (breakfast and lunch or dinner) Plus more tidbits for healing. As you can see the above adds to $325 per day; however, your cost is $235. We do hope that this interests you enough that you also would want to check-in your mobile devices for some portion of your retreat to gain the maximum benefit. We would of course be available at all times for your convenience. For anyone interested in learning the Transcendental Meditation Technique, you can book 5 days, to accommodate the 4 days necessary for the TM training. Both my husband and I are Certified TM teachers, and he can offer you a $160 Health Professionals courtesy discount. Or you can just book "Kilcher Homestead Lighthouse" for $75 base price; And ask for any of the above Alacarte once you arrive! We want your brain and nervous system to be able to "Detox" through good diet, integration of mind and body, harmony of nature and giving yourself a break from your digital world. We hope you can join us.

We are off grid, so no wifi, and hope that you will take this opportunity to "unplug" from your digital devices for a few days. Interaction with GuestsBecause this is a special unique retreat situation, we will interact with you more than with other air bnb. The purpose of this is to transform and rejuvenate. So your private retreat includes daily: 2 meals prepared for you (breakfast and dinner) 30 minutes private yoga instruction in the morning and 30 minutes in the evening 30 minutes wild edible plant tour gathering for your meal Plus 30 minutes Ayurveda cooking lesson 2 Ayurvedic health consultations valued at $140 (at no cost to you, as it's included in your stay) If you are coming alone, then you receive one Ayurvedic consultation PLUS one Cranio Sacral therapy session This schedule is designed to provide you with life changing habits, nutrition and lifestyle Detox and advice, and get you on a royal path to leave our retreat feeling transformed. The NeighborhoodOur 600 Kilcher Homestead was famous long before the Discovery Channel started the hit TV show "Alaska the Last Frontier". My father often hosted yoga retreats and wilderness survival camps. I have also hosted camps for medicinal plant workshops and wilderness training skills. However, now this is just for a select few with full one-on-one attention to just you. No one else.

We want your brain and nervous system to be able to "Detox" through good diet, knowledge, nature and giving yourself a break from your digital world. Getting AroundWe recommend you rent a four-wheel-drive car so you feel ready to be as adventurous as you want when you go out and about. However, it is not necessary. We suggest that you even do not have to rent a car in Anchorage to come down here! If you want to do this retreat for three days or longer, you can just fly in to Homer, and we will come get you at the airport. Then you can just stay here and take advantage of your retreat time, and then take a taxi for $25 back to the airport at a time of your convenience. Or if you do need to go to town, you can call the taxi to pick you up for $25, and $25 to bring you back. For $50 that is still cheaper than renting a car at the cheapest for $75 a day! We also go to town so you might catch a ride with us to do errands if you require. Other Things to NoteMy place is very special. Read the reviews, you will see. We are 25 minutes from the town of Homer, so if you need some entertainment you can always go to town to shop and explore and eat in gourmet restaurants. It's nice to mix it up a bit. However sometimes it's nice just to stay put for two or three days in your little hideaway and recharge your Self, not your mobile devices, lol! A few things that make my place unique: My 5 acres is part of the famous 600 acre Kilcher Homestead, as seen on Alaska the Last Frontier. I am the 7th of the 8 children; Atz and Otto are my brothers. There is a special feeling here vibrating in the land, and why our parents picked this spot. The atmosphere feels so pure, so silent, so wild yet comfortable. Drive in access and no issues with mosquitos!!! You get to meet me and maybe other family members as you cruise around.
