“Amazing boat - but pricey to stay”
Reviewed 10 August 2010

We stayed on the Double Eagle boat which one of about 5 self catering properties that form Alaska Adventure cabins. The boat is amazing and it's a truly unique location. All of that said, we did think that for the price we paid, there may have been a few more nice touches. For example, our daughter slept on the sofa bed which meant she had no curtains and there is a lot of daylight in Alaska in August.
We met the owner and he was lovely - although the lady who worked in the office didn't seem that bothered when we told her we couldn't use the key to lock the door.We guess it all depends on what you're after.
If the location is everything to you then you'll love it otherwise save your money and book one of the properties available from the same owner.

One of the nicest places I've ever stayed.
Incredible up-high view of the bay.
Clean, comfortable, great group space with privacy too.
Well-supplied kitchen.
All we could have asked for!

Don't let the words "Adventure" or "Cabin" fool you. Alaska Adventure Cabins are an exquisite adventure with all the comforts and luxuries of a first rate hotel. We stayed in the Dovetail Cabin--a cozy cabin with vast and stunning views. We loved the loft bedroom; it was luxurious but homey. Lovely quilts, soft night lights, and immense windows added to the ambiance. The downstairs offered a full kitchen, modern bathroom, and cozy living room. We only had one complaint--the cabin sat too close to the road to feel like a a real Alaskan adventure. However, all the other units sit away from the road, so definitley try one of them.

When I began searching for places to stay in Homer I came across this cabin. I knew that I HAD to stay here! Alaska Adventure Cabins has several options available but I fell in love with the DOVETAIL. The owners were wonderful, the location was incredibly easy to find and let me tell you about the views...unreal. The cabin sits on the bluff overlooking the spit and out onto the volcanoes around Homer. The log cabin has everything you could possibly desire to find! Warm bed, full kitchen, satelite tv, deck, bbq, you name it, they have it there for you! Luxury, comfort, you may end up like us, reluctant to leave!! Not only was the cabin itself stunning, but the views from every angle were spectacular. Even in the cloudy weather we experienced you couldn't help but feel in awe of the geography and the workmanship involved in creating this little slice of perfection! Seriously though, if you are looking for a cabin a step above the usual, you need not look any further.
