Bear Viewing Charters can be arranged for trips across Cook Inet to view bears on the beaches and in the grasslands at the foot of glacier crusted volcanoes, as well as at the world famous McNeil River Falls (requires a permit). Brooks River Falls is perhaps the next most famous bear viewing destination, and we can arrange for a trip there, also. Please call us and we can help make arrangements.
Halibut Cove and Seldovia Daily ferries can be taken from Homer to either of these beautiful destinations in fjords across Kachemak Bay. Gull island, enroute to Halibut Cove, is heavily populated with puffins, cormorants and terns. Both communities are old Alaska fishing villages and have boardwalks to stroll on, explore, eat, and enjoy the art and often music. Kayak rentals and trails are available also. Great photograhic opportunities! Please call us and we can help make arrangements.
Bonfires We have a campfire spot on the premises, but you might also choose to take dinner and smores to the beach and enjoy the evening sky while cozying up to a fire. We'll supply your wood, a cooler, and folding camp chairs!
Beachcombing The peninsula is chalk full of beaches. Some are gravely and in rocky coves with awesome tidepools, and some are very long sandy stretches, such as the beach 6 miles from us. Our beach is known for being lined with salmon set net sites all summer, which is interesting to walk by and observe this commercial style of salmon fishing being done by local families who work them. Our Cohoe Beach is excellent for sunbathing on hot days, bonfires, collecting agates and shells, as well as walks and runs. The sunsets are long and spectacular, as the summer sun skips over the mountain peaks, reluctant to set, then barely dips down and pops right back up again a couple of hours later to herald the morning.
Flightseeing There are numerous fixed wing aircraft flight seeing companies all over the Peninsula, that we can book for you. Homer is a good embarkation point, and also offers helicoptor flightseeing.
Hiking The Kenai Peninsula has dozens of beautiful trails, both mountain and lowland, all levels of difficulty. Some even traverse beaches and access ice fields and glaciers. We'll help you with supplies, such as daypacks and bear spray!
Canoeing There is a small pond on the premises, where we store our canoe available for use by guests, and two large lakes nearby for canoeing, swimming and fishing. Kasilof River "slackwater", also nearby at the end of the road, is the 2-3 mile stretch of slow moving water suitable for canoeing that begins the Kasilof River from 20 mile long Tustumena Lake.
