Spread across the best real estate on the Spit, Land's End offers splendid bay views from variously styled rooms and suites. The resort also has three-bedroom condos—economical for groups of up to 10 people—that come with full kitchens, balconies, and access to a private beach. The restaurant, The Chart Room ($$$$), specializes in seafood but also serves burgers and steaks. Call in advance to reserve a table with a window view of Kachemak Bay—or on a sunny day, dine
on an enormous deck that perches over the water. In the winter, when the deck is closed, guests can partake of the chef's monthly wine-paired, themed-dinner ($80).
