“Should have an excellent rating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

The view at these cabins in Homer is excellent and I would have given it an excellent rating except they were doing road construction right behind our cabin and the beep, beep, beep was unending from 7 in the morning until 8 at night. Then they had evidently just varnished the woodwork and walking into the charming cabin made my throat close up. The owner Kelly was friendly and knowledgable about the area.

Room Tip: All the cabins have a good view of the glaciers.

We spent 4 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed out stay. We had Sandhill cranes landing and dancing in the yard! Very clean and comfortable for us. Kelly runs the place and was absolutely super. Thanks for great stay.

Our fishing captain recommended the Glacier View Cabins. We were very pleased with the room,location and ease of checking in and out. The only issues we encountered; our cabin had an adjoining room, the walls are very thin and it was easy to hear the neighbors conversation; the other issue, there was no sink in the bathroom. The only sink was in the kitchen area. It felt strange brushing my teeth, fixing my hair, and putting on make-up in the kitchen. The view of the glacier was phenomenal.

Room Tip: If you're looking for privacy, avoid the shared cabin; Poppy 1 & 2.

This place completely ruined our stay in Homer. Where do I start, the carpet had never been vacuumed, the kitchenette had crumbs every where, dishes, utensils and everything else in it had caked food on it, crumbs and dirt all over it. BBQ utensils had never been cleaned. When the bedspread was pulled back the blanket was full of women's hair, dog hair and dirt. Sheets were awful, towels smelled funny. Cob webs EVERYWHERE! The sofa/couch was stained, full of hair (dog and human pubic). They also didn't have curtains, so it was light in the cabins ALL the time! Additionally, there was never anyone in the office, but I saw where the "cleaning" was done and could see why it was horrible, it was literally a dirt barn! Steer clear of this place it was horrible!

The cabins are nice and clean but the best part is the privacy and mini kitchen/grill. We happened to be staying in the only cabin that is a duplex, all others are single cabins but ours had a shared interior door which might be nice for a larger group. It wasn't an ideal set up for us since we had a toddler struggling to sleep in a room with only blinds to block out the light (sorry neighbors!). Each cabin/room has a little porch with a propane grill. The mini kitchens contain a sink, dishes/cutlery, microwave, mini refrigerator, toaster, coffee/tea maker and fixings for s'mores. There are picnic tables and firepits (with complementary firewood) out in the large shared yard. The beds are a bit squeaky and by no means the best but they are good enough. The largest complaint is that the large window and window in the door only had blinds so a decent amount of light gets in. If coming bring dark trash bags or something similar if light bothers your sleep. It is nice and private (more so if you don't have the duplex cabin) and the grills are nice if you want to grill fresh fish or any other grillable.
