Million Dollar Views from the 6 bedrooms, 4 bath Grand View Retreat!

Family-friendly vacation home in Homer with fitness center
Welcome to the Grand View Retreat, where 30 foot walls of windows bring iconic views of Kachemak Bay, the Alaskan Mountains, Cooks Inlet, Dixon Glacier, Portlock Glacier, Grewingk Glacier, and the famous Homer Spit right into your living room. At night the moonlight casts shadows on the water and mountain peaks, and lights glowing on the nearby Homer Spit fill the sky.
Three living rooms, three view decks, a chef’s kitchen, parking for ten and 5,200 sq. ft. of indoor space provide plenty of area for the entire extended family and friends to relax and unwind after a day catching their limit of halibut or salmon, hiking Kachemak Bay’s gorgeous trails, or taking a trip on the Danny-J wooden ferry to Gull Island and Halibut Cove across the bay. After socializing with your group, enjoy some quiet time in one of the 6 private bedrooms and clean up in one of the 4 bathrooms, including two with ensuite 2 person jacuzzi tubs. With so many unique spaces the Grand View Retreat is Homer's #1 destination for both family game nights and romantic getaways, expansive views and cozy retreats.
The Chalet is located just 9 miles outside Homer, the Halibut Capital of the World and a renowned artist and foodie haven. Being just outside of town means you can safely view Alaskan wildlife from the 3 expansive wood decks in the Chalet, including bears, our resident moose family, and bald eagles; or walk along the Spit and look for seals, otters, and the occasional whale. Your friendly and knowledgeable hosts have owned and operated the Grand View Retreat since 2005, and are available by phone or email 24/7. We hope you enjoy your stay in the most unforgettable property in Homer!

*Notes: The Cozy Corner Cabin (a studio attached cabin) is rented separately from the Grand View Resort, and is on the same property.

Beautiful home with amazing views
We very much enjoyed our stay here with our large family group. Everyone was comfortable and enjoyed the space. There were plenty of towels and kitchen items. We did not want for anything. This home is a tremendous value for how many bedrooms there are and the incredible view. We will definitely stay again if we visit Homer with the family. Even when it was cloudy, the views were great. Highly recommend!

Alaska wedding
Beautiful views from every window. This house has all amenities you could possibly need. Great trip

5/5 Excellent

Stay HERE if you have a large group and in Homer, AK
The Grandview Retreat over exceeded our expectations. Large enough to accommodate 10 of my family members. Enough bedrooms for all of us to sleep comfortably and plenty of bathrooms so we weren't struggling to get ready. Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook and coffee was provided even though we brought our own. We had plenty of seating to eat dinner together and the view overlooking the Kachemac Bay and The Spit was incredible. The option to do laundry was a lifesaver for us as we did a few loads so we had clothes for the tail end of our trip. Please stay here if you are in Homer. It is gorgeous and the communication with owner was wonderful! You will not be disappointed!

5/5 Excellent

Best place in homer for families…
Great house- clean and had everything we needed! The views were the best though. This was really the best lodging in Homer. We used it as a jumping point for a family fishing trip and a bear-plane excursion.
Stayed 4 nights in Aug 2021

5/5 Excellent

Can’t get a better view
The house has a truly stunning view with Moose mom and babies in the back yard! With a large group, we were able to spread out and enjoy good company without being on top of each other. The location was great. We were very happy with our stay. If it matters to you — the internet is a bit spotty.
