LITTLE FIREWEED COTTAGE≈HOT TUB, WONDERFUL VIEWS OF BAY, IN CITY LIMITS, PRIVATE

Homer Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to Little Fireweed Cottage in Homer, Alaska. We strive to ensure that your experience at our cottage is one that stays with you forever. Whether you are in Homer just to relax and soak in the breathtaking views or here to dive into the multitude of outdoor activities this unique area of the world offers, we are confident that your stay at Little Fireweed Cottage will be one of the highlights of your trip.

Before we discovered the jewel that is Homer, we traveled around the world and stayed in many vacation homes along the way. We have taken many of those things, which we enjoyed the most when staying in those homes and have tried to incorporate them into our vacation rental.

Just recently built in 2006 on one and a half private acres, Little Fireweed Cottage was made to serve as a retreat and a home-away-from-home for those traveling for the 'Homer experience'. After a long day of fishing for halibut, sightseeing, or hiking, come home to cook up your seafood just the way you like it on the barbecue grill.

Pour yourself a glass of wine from one of our bottles on site and ponder whether it is time to melt away in the very brand new hot tub with its grand views or whether that should wait until after the movie you are going to watch on the flat-screen TV/home theater. If you're a night owl, there's always the fire pit up on the hill, with the swinging chair that turns into a bed.

We know that everyone has their own ways of doing 'vacation'. With that said, we believe that in whatever way you seek to find ultimate relaxation, Little Fireweed Cottage will serve you wonderfully in that endeavor.

My wife is from New Brunswick, Canada and I am from Palmer, Alaska. Growing up six hours away in the Matanuska Valley, I always loved the opportunity to get down to Homer to visit my family there. Since a very young age, Homer has held a very special place in my heart. I have traveled to nearly 40 different countries around the world but I have yet to see a place that matches the majesty of Homer, Alaska.

Be sure to take a trip across the bay if you come all this way. It's really a wonderful experience.

Ailsa or Tyson Hall purchased this cottage in 2006

Ever since I was 13, it has been a dream of mine to own a piece of Homer. That dream came true in 2006! We were able to grab a great in-town lot with a wonderful view of Kachemak Bay! We built the cottage the same year we bought the land. We feel truly blessed!

The reason we got into Vacation Rentals is because we have stayed in many ourselves and like the idea of staying in a private home instead of a noisy, crowded hotel. As a result of those visits at various rentals across the nation, we came up with four very important qualities that we look for when booking a Vacation Rental and incorporated them into ours. They are, 1) The lodging must be private, 2) It must be close to the town you are visiting, 3) It must have a HOT-TUB!!, 4) If applicable, it must have a view.

We have all four!! We are only two miles from lovely Homer, on almost one and a half private acres, with a great view that you can soak in while in the wonderful hot-tub!

We are proud of our cozy little cottage in Homer and are so confident that it will exceed your expectations and serve to be the retreat you need after coming all this way.

Staying at the Little Fireweed Cottage was our final stay on a 12 day Alaska trip and it was our favorite stay by far. I was traveling with 3 others and we all were surprised at how nice this place was. There was enough space to make us all feel comfortable. The cottage was well-maintained and clean. The beds were comfortable. The hot tub and view were absolutely awesome. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Homer!

Everything was just right in this sparkling clean refuge perched above Homer. The hot tub was wonderful, the kitchen was well-equipped, the owners were helpful and friendly, the beds were very comfortable. The up-to-date washer and dryer set was handy after some rainy walks. Even though the house is secluded, it was only a few minutes drive from downtown and a few minutes more to the Homer Spit. Our last morning in Homer, there was even the footprint of a moose in the driveway!

Perfect Cottage in the Most Beautiful Place in the World

We just spent 8 nights at Little Fireweed Cottage in Homer. This was the first trip to Alaska for my family and I. The cottage was very clean when we arrived and the place looks just like the pics in the listing. Everything was just as described. The views off the deck are actually far better in person.

On our first morning, we got up to have coffee on the deck and lo and behold, there was a Momma moose with her baby browsing about 20 feet off the deck. We hopped in the hot tub and watched them walk around the yard and eat for about a half hour. We saw them nearly every day we were there. Very exciting for us.

We loved grilling the fresh halibut and salmon we caught during our stay. BTW, we were extremely happy with our halibut charter captain, Pete Wedin (http://captpete.com/). Pete has a fantastic attitude and is great with kids. We also went clamming and fried up a delicious batch of Pacific razor clams. The kitchen in the cottage is fully stocked with appliances, dishes, pots, pans, etc. You will want for nothing.

Our favorite places to eat were:

Breakfast - Maura's Cafe on the corner of Main and Bunnell
Bakery - 2 Sisters Bakery, 1 block east of Maura's on Bunnell
dinner - Cafe Cups on Pioneer and Mermaid Cafe on Main
lunch - Fresh Catch and Captain Patties, both out on the spit

You will need dinner reservations 7 days a week in the summer season.

We had a great sea kayaking experience with True North. Fantastic sights and even got to paddle up close to an otter.

I can't recommend this cottage highly enough. We loved every minute and are already planning to visit again next summer.

My husband and I just loved your house. It was fully equipped and very close to town and the spit. Homer is such a beautiful place and the views form the house were awesome. We want to return to Homer in the future for more fishing and would definitely stay here again. We have already recommended it to family and friends if they plan to visit Homer. Thanks for everything!
