Tour Inside This Newly Built Log Cabin Nestled On Beluga Lake

    Take a look inside the Beluga Lake Cabins with the newly built studio log cabins nestled on Beluga Lake in Homer, Alaska. The new luxurious studio log cabins are situated in the heart of Homer on Beluga Lake. Centrally located to the Homer Spit and Downtown Homer, these cabins each feature 1 king-sized bed and 1 queen-sized pull-out couch, kitchen and living room setup, and 3/4 bathroom, and are a stone’s throw away from the shores of Beluga Lake. Each unit features 1 king bed and 1 queen-sized pull-out couch, 3/4 bath, full kitchen (no dishwasher), large flat screen tv featuring Samsung TV plus channels, washer, dryer, outdoor seating area, and 2 parking spots per cabin. Access to a community fire ring and lake.

    Another option is Cabin 4 with the second-floor loft-style log studio cabin. The cabin features 1 queen-sized pull-out couch, 2 half baths, and a full kitchen (no dishwasher) on the main floor. The second-floor loft houses 1 king bed, a 3/4 bath, large flat-screen tv featuring Samsung TV plus channels. There is no washer or dryer in this cabin. There is an outdoor seating area and 2 parking spots per cabin with access to a community fire ring and lake. The following are some of the things to do during your vacation stay.

    Hiking at Emerald Lake. The network of hiking trails on the Kenai Peninsula is, without a doubt, the best in the state. Some, like the Upper Russian Lake Trail, have public-use cabins that can be reserved. The Resurrection and Johnson Pass trails are popular and well-traveled, while others are little more than game trails. The Chinapoot Peak hike in Kachemak Bay State Park takes you straight up 2,600 feet to spectacular vistas, while others, like Crow Pass and Twenty Mile out of Girdwood, take you through rugged mountain passes. Small short hikes can lead to hidden jewels. The Exit Glacier hike in Seward is one example, which leads up to the Harding Ice Field, and the Diamond Creek hike down to a deserted beach just outside of Homer is another. The trail system across Kachemak Bay from Homer leads to an entirely different world of remote adventure. The hikes to Leisure Lake and Emerald Lake from Glacier Spit are two examples of short hikes that take you into seclusion. Trail conditions and levels of difficulty vary, as does the concentration of bears and other wildlife, so it is a good idea to read up on your desired destination.

    Bear Viewing. From mid-May to mid-September, Homer, Alaska is the premier destination for bear viewing in the world. Alaskan brown bears are among the largest in the world, and some of the highest concentrations of Alaskan brown bears are directly west of Homer. You are virtually guaranteed to see bears. Tour operators will pick up in Homer and fly to one of several popular bear viewing destinations, including Lake Clark, Katmai National Park, Bruin Bay, and McNeil River Sanctuary. Flight time is approximately 1 hour each way and highlights some of Alaska’s most spectacular natural scenery along the way.
