About Greg Koehler
We fell in love with Alaska during our initial visit and knew immediately that this is where we wanted to live. We reside in Eagle River and came upon this property by chance just last year and now we drive down to the cabin every chance we get. Lots of room for the grandkids to run around.
Greg Koehler purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Greg Koehler chose Ninilchik
We came upon this property by chance and liked it for a number of reasons. It is half way between Homer and Soldotna, each of which are only 40-minute drives; halibut charters are available right out of Ninilchik; the property is close to the beach; the fairground is within walking distance.
What makes this Cabin unique
Beautiful setting; mountain views; great views of the Milky Way and the northern lights; very quiet. Oh, and the cabin is awesome!

Clean, wonderful. Nine different moose walked through the yard. Our son even had his own building. I recommend this place.
Excellent place to stay, loved the location. Could have been some more fire wood to enjoy a fire in the evening but other than that, Absolutely awesome.
Clean, quiet, beautiful location, everything we needed
We were on the peninsula this week for the Kenai Peninsula Orchestra summer festival and this house was the perfect home base for our concerts/rehearsals in Ninilchik, Homer, and Kenai. The house was very comfortable with a well-stocked pantry and kitchen and space for all of us. Thank you!
Everything was great. We had moose come by every day. Great fish cleaning area also. Highly recommend for your stay.
Great spot for a group
Greg did a nice job in putting this spot together. the loft units are a bit difficult as they are a ladder straight up and down. We sent the young guy (52) up there and stayed in lower beds using both places. the little place needs heat.
good spot overall.
Felt like home - clean, spacious, washer/dryer, awesome decor = National Park posters.
This property was awesome. More than enough room for our family of 6. Rìeally felt like we were home each time we drove in the driveway. Big cabin had 3 comfortable beds, big bathroom with washer/dryer and tub/shower. Fully furnished kitchen (minus a diahwasher). Even had a fish cleaning table and waterhose outside and a vacuum sealer and deep freeze - perfect for all the red salmon we brought home! Very spacious and comfortable livingroom/dining/kitchen. Loved how open & airy it was. Especially loved the decor and all the old National Park posters - got us dreaming of our next getaways. Little cabin was great for sleepng a couple more people - and private, altho not much headroom in the loft. We liked the quiet location of Ninilchik. We were able to fish north near Soldotna and sightsee south in Homer, all while staying in the same place. It was nice having 4 nights in one location and not having to pack up and move. Ninilchik isn't the most beautiful place in Alaska but it's unique and provides a real Alaskan experience. We even did the Ninilchik 5k Clam Scramble on the beach - very fun!
Situated halfway between Soldotna and Homer, Ninilchik is an excellent location that provides easy access to excellent salmon fishing, sightseeing, or treasure hunting throughout the western peninsula yet also provide a quiet and comfortable respite from the hustle and bustle of these popular locales.
To get to Koehler's Holiday House, take the Seward Highway to the Sterling Highway. Once you are on the Sterling Highway you'll pass through Cooper Landing, which is situated on the world-famous Kenai River and you'll cross where it meets Kenai Lake. You can get a good burger at Gwin's Lodge, which is on the south side of the highway on the outskirts of town just before you come to the Russian River campground, which will probably be full. You don't have to camp there to have access to the river but if you plan on fishing, go early.
From here you'll cross the river just before you approach the Russian River ferry, then on to Sterling where Susie's Restaurant has excellent food. You'll find Susie's on the south side of the highway. From Sterling, on to Soldotna, where you'll find a Fred Meyer's grocery store on your left as you come into town. Fred Meyer's also has gas, diesel, propane and dry ice.
From Soldotna continue south on the Sterling Highway in the direction of Homer. Ninilchik is situated about 40 miles south of Soldotna and when you arrive, you will find a Tesoro gas station at the intersection of the Sterling Highway and Oil Well Rd.
Turn left (east) onto Oil Well Road and drive approximately one mile until you come to Reba St. Turn right on Reba and drive about 1/3 mile until you come to a fork in the road. Take the left fork, which is Easy St. Drive about another 1/3 mile and you will be at
Koehler's Holiday House
16582 Easy St.
Ninilchik, AK 99639
It will be on the left.
If your plans include halibut fishing, be sure to check out one of the local charter operators as there are several that operate out of Ninilchik. You can also drive to the beaches at the mouth of either the Ninilchik River or Deep Creek. Bearing in mind that these beaches are not like beaches you'll find in the lower 48, you can still go to either and usually see eagles gathering or feeding.
If you have time to include Homer in your plans (and at this point, why not?), be sure to drive down to the Spit where you'll see not only eagles, but maybe even whales. And don't forget to stop into the Salty Dog Saloon for a souvenir.
