Kathy Carlile is one amazing woman! I've stayed at her B&B twice now and each time has and will be a memorable experience. She also bakes a mean cookie, just like mom makes! The first was for a Road Rally in 2010 and secondly in May 2012.
The bed was very comfy. If it was blustery outside she has a new TV to watch a movie or any photos you may have taken during the trip (has a USB port).
It's secluded enough to be quiet, yet close enough to Soldotna and Homer to use it as a home-base for Peninsula excursions.
Kathy is a joy to talk with and makes us feel at home and comfortable.
Now, THE VIEW!
On a clear day the active volcano plume of smoke can be easily seen with the naked eye. The B&B is poised on the cliff and one can carefully make their way down to the beach to run, walk, collect seashells etc.
For those who expected sourdough pancakes or any requests, Kathy would gladly hear what you would want and do her best to accommodate that. She not a mind reader but IS a mindful person.
If you are wanting a little sweet secluded spot the little cabin is AMAZINGLY quaint and quiet.
This last trip, my boyfriend is a writer, and he found it to be rejuvenating and just the relaxing and quiet place needed to let the words hit the page.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The B&B sits high on the bluff overlooking the Cook Inlet with three volcanoes visible from the bluff, Redoubt, Iliamna, and Spur. There are steps to access the beach, where depending on the time of year, you will find commercial fishermen with their set net sites, or dog mushers training their dogs, or just a calm walk along the shore gathering shells. The house has three bedrooms sharing two baths, a common sitting room and dining room. The cabin on the bluff, is completely self contained, but the guests staying there are welcome to come in and have breakfast in the house. ... more less
