These classic log cabins are an affordable option for families looking for a quiet place to stay on the highway between the towns of Kenai and Homer. Each cabin can sleep up to six people on two queen beds and a full futon. Parents will appreciate the semi-privacy of the upstairs loft, while kids can spread out downstairs. Cabins include a kitchenette, with refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker, plus free Wi-Fi and satellite TV. The forested property also has a wood-fired sauna, BBQ grills, picnic tables, fire pit and horseshoe pit.

Sleepy Bear Cabins is located on a quiet stretch of road a few minutes off the Sterling Highway in Anchor Point. Most of the town is within walking distance of your cabin, giving you easy access to a small grocery store, post office and several restaurants. For lunch or dinner, you won’t find better burgers and milkshakes than at the Blue Bus Diner. For more variety, make the 20-minute drive into Homer, where you’ll find everything from fast food to fine dining. Within just a few miles of your cabin are plenty of prime fishing spots along the Anchor River. Golfers will also love the rugged beauty of the 9-hole Fireweed Meadows Golf Course, a half-mile down the road. For plenty of other family-friendly activities and excursions, like halibut fishing, whale watching and glacial hiking, head into nearby Homer. With its quiet location and beautiful surroundings, the Sleepy Bear Cabins are a great choice for your family vacation to Alaska.

Did not see any Bears but had a great 11 days at the cabins!

Theresa (the owner) was very accommodating and friendly and went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect (which it was). We stayed in Cabin #2 with the loft and where lucky to experience her new kitchen upgrade which included a very nice solid surface counter top with modern sink and an induction (electric) cooking device with all the utensils and pots/pans for cooking breakfast / dinner. (as well as a gas grill outside). This was very convenient for us as we cooked a lot during our 11 days. The heater was very efficient (we stayed into late September where it was getting down to 38-40 F at night). Theresa was always available and her daily service was efficient. The table in our cabin was a work of art, a large piece (for two people) carved out of a single log as the top with all the beautiful natural curves and knots on the side. We did get to see mamma Moose and her two babies most evenings which seemed to occur around 7:00pm. Luckily we saw no Bears, sleeping or awake. We will stay here again next year as it is great value for the dollar and Theresa takes good care of her clients!

I stay in Anchor Point quite often. I love the Anchor River recreation area. Homer can be so busy in the summer, but this quaint hamlet has just as much fun and character!!!! Great fishing, great coffee (Lazy Latte has Kaladi Bros coffee and the BEST cinnamon rolls!), great mexican (Ramiro's and Blue Bus diner) great thrift store (Heart n Hands)...I could go on and on!! Homer is great but you are missing out on a sleepy little community that can compete well, but shhhhh don't tell anyone! The Sleepy Bear Cabins are SOOOOO reasonable, so accomodating and clean. In room fridge, microwave, table, free wifi. I had everything and more and the owner was so incredibly NICE!! Have laundry? It is only 5 minutes away at the Cheeky Moose. Cheeky Moose has laundry, wifi, showers and great soup/cafe!!! You can not GO wrong staying here if you are tripping to go to Homer. The bed at Sleepy Bear Cabins was soooo comfortable. I just can't say enough about this area and the Sleepy Bear Cabins...but shhhhh don't tell anyone!!!! In my review I will say the WIFI was perfect I had NO trouble at all. This is Alaska and it is not the same as the lower 48.....
