For the ultimate log cabin experience in Homer, the Alaskan Suites will satisfy. The suites are, in fact, cozy cabins that can comfortably sleep a family of five on two queen beds and a twin sleeper sofa. There are five cabins, all the same, perched on a high bluff looking over Kachemak Bay. Some call it the best view in town. Judge for yourself as you sit on your private deck. The cabin includes a kitchenette, with refrigerator, microwave, dishes, utensils and coffeemaker. There’s a very comfortable sitting area with leather chairs and satellite TV, but you’ll either be sitting on the deck or in the nearby hot tub. The owners pride themselves on keeping their cabins clean and tidy. A continental breakfast of cereal, yogurt, bread and fresh fruit is available each morning.
The Alaskan Suites cabins are 3 miles west of Homer, on a rise just before the road dips down into town. The unimpeded panoramic views will make you feel like you have the entire bay to yourself. It’s a quick 5-minute drive to the nearest grocery store or restaurant. Downtown Homer has many attractions within easy walking distance of each other. Spend a few hours at the Alaska Islands and Ocean Visitor Center, where kids will have fun learning about the sea creatures. Another fun place to visit is the Pratt Museum, which celebrates the history of Kachemak Bay with cool exhibits on native culture and the early homesteaders. Kids will want to go beachcombing on Bishop’s Beach and the nearby wetlands or explore the trails that run out onto the Homer Spit. With its almost perfect view and comfy log cabins, the Alaskan Suites are a wonderful choice for your family vacation in Homer.

We had an incredible anniversary weekend staying here. The views alone made everything worth the trip; gorgeous sunsets as the moon rises on the other side of the bay and coffee in bed while watching the sunrise from behind the mountains. The beds and pillows were so comfy that we spent an entire day in bed just relaxing in the ambiance of the cabin. A grill is provided on the back deck that made cooking an absolute delight with a glass of local wine and music playing through the large flat-screen TV. The managers were fantastic and got us everything we needed and offered recommendations to local restaurants which turned out to be perfect. We absolutely loved it here and cannot wait to go back for more adventures and relaxation.
We really loved our cabin at Alaskan Suites. Very comfortable and beautifully decorated. It's a good location for visiting Homer with an awesome view of the ocean.
The cabins come with nice gas grills which we used to cook dinner and our cabin came with everything we needed for a great stay. Would definitely stay there again!
