The perfect base for your Homer Alaska experience

  • Submitted: Nov 24,2016

There were 4 of us, two adults and two children. The space was amazing, we were stunned with its elegance and charm. We enjoyed it so much we extended our stay an extra night. The fire pit, complete with fire starter and wood, was a perfect place for relaxing and toasting marshmallows. Sleeping arrangements were great, both the bed and the sleeper sofa were comfy-cozy. The wood stove heat is controlled by a thermostat, and the in-floor heating kept our toes nice and warm. The hosts were communicative, and wonderful to meet. We cannot say enough about this place, and will definitely stay here the next time we visit Homer.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The view from the property is breathtaking.

This is a stunning property. We stayed for two nights in November, which is not exactly high season in Alaska. Nonetheless, we were treated to perhaps the most stunning sunset I\'ve ever seen. That was just an extra, as the accommodations were perfect. Comfortable bed, nicely done interiors, and very friendly people. Just a few minutes from Homer, this is a place we would where likely return our next time in Alaska.


Beautiful view just outside of Homer

The view was beautiful. Wished we could have enjoyed it more! Clean, up to date, and just enough space without being too big or small. (If owners want suggestions, maybe a few more kitchen items, like cloths, foil, wrap and small plates would be helpful).
