Our guests most frequently remark that the comfort and convenience available at Homer Guest Cottage is like 'being at home'. The owners personally strive to ensure the level of welcoming care you require is met with typical Alaskan friendliness.

The modern, beautifully appointed 2500 sq. ft. home sits on 2.5 landscaped acres and offers both privacy and accessibility in a unique 'close in' setting as well as amenities inviting to families, couples and small groups.

Homer offers one of Alaska's most beautiful natural settings as well as many opportunities to view and enjoy it's flora and fauna, including frequent visiting moose at the cottage.

Come experience Alaska, the Great Land.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS:

From the intersection of the Sterling Highway and Pioneer Avenue coming 'down the hill' into Homer, take Pioneer Ave. east (left) through the central town business area to the four-way flashing red traffic signal at Lake Street.

Continue straight, on East Road 1.9 miles to the cottage- the first driveway to the left past Williams Pl.

Amazing place - good price

  • 5 of 5
This place blew me away. Every detail appears thought out from the huge stacks of tourist guides, to the phenomenal locally roasted coffee, to the extra towels by the door to the hot tub and even the spare emergency rain jackets. Everything is sparkling clean, very well maintained, well thought out, and then there is the view.... I actually can't describe the view, you can see the picture, but that is a bit like having someone tell you what chocolate tastes like. Try this place out just for the view. Except for the one rainy night, we watched gorgeous sunsets reflected onto the bay, the mountains, and the glaciers from the patio.

I highly recommend this place to anyone!!!!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
Everything about the Homer Guest Cottage is fabulous...the view, the furnishings, the hotub, etc. We were a 3-generation family of 8 ages 9 to 70 celebrating our 50th anniversary in the 50th state. It was the first time for trying VRBO and this was our favorite. It was perfect for us. We booked in Nov. 2013 for our July 2014 trip. Liz and Tony have thought of every need and detail...Wish we could've stayed longer and would love to return.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5
This house far exceeded our expectations in every way. It was large with comfortable furniture and a bed for each of our kids. The kitchen was fully stocked and so were the bathrooms. We loved the hot tub, the views from the many windows, the location in regards to town, and the moose in the yard! The owners really made our stay in Homer memorable. If we went back, we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5
The house was so neat and clean. The owners had thought of everything! We stayed for a week with our three teenagers and my mom and mother-in-law. The view from the porch was breathtaking and we enjoyed sitting outside and viewing the glaciers. We saw several moose and a mother and baby moose even went through the yard while we were sitting outside. We visited the Homer Brewery and the Bear Creek winery. My husband and girls halibut fished and also went fishing off the spit. We came home with halibut, cod, flounder, and salmon. We also took the water taxi to Kachemak Bay state park and hiked to the glacier one day. Went sea kayaking another and took a nature tour via water taxi as well. So much stuff to do in Homer. It was great coming back to the house at the end of the day. We cooked almost all our meals there. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils etc.. Owners were super helpful and had a ton of reading material etc... About Alaska and surrounding areas. They had movies the kids could watch and bikes for them to ride. We were so busy we never got to the hot tub. It was great place to stay and we plan on returning in the next year or two.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five just rented the house for a portion of spring break. Let me begin by saying the house is far nicer and better appointed than the photos show. "Quaint" is a good word, but insufficient; the owners didn't leave a single thing out. Beautiful linens. Soft and ample white towels. Throw blankets. Cut wood next to the fireplace. Every imaginable necessity for the kitchen. Two satellite TVs and DVDs for every taste. Books. Puzzles and games. Toiletries. Fresh coffee beans in the cupboard. And the hot tub... clean and hot and ready for use upon our arrival. You know when you go to a VRBO and there is always a closet or cupboard that is the "owners" and it's locked? This home does not have one of those. Everything is available for your use and enjoyment. There are ample windows from which to watch the sunrise over Kachemak Bay and the surrounding mountains. I imagine renting the home in the summer is even more amazing, as they would have deck furniture on the lovely deck to admire the view, and bicycles to ride the 2 miles of paved sidewalk to downtown Homer. Rent. This. Home. It's lovely.
