About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

The Old Inlet Bookshop, Mermaid Café and B&B is located on Main Street in beautiful downtown Homer, just off the Sterling Highway towards the beach. In a renovated historic log cabin, there is a used bookshop offering quality used books in most genres. Next door, there is the Mermaid Café that serves lunch and dinner. Upstairs is the Mermaid B&B in a charming Victorian style construction--it is well appointed and features local artwork.

In a private, wooded setting in Old Town, Homer, the Mermaid B&B offers a scenic, clean place to stay with a queen sized Posturepedic bed in the bedroom and a full sized fold-out futon in the living room. The dining room is in the turret with windows looking out over Kachemak Bay and the mountains and glaciers beyond. The kitchen is fully equipped and has everything one needs to prepare meals. Outside on the private deck is a hot tub built for five that offers a way to relax and wash away the worries of the day while one enjoys a beverage and great ocean/mountain views.

The establishment is within a few minutes walk of the beach, grocery stores, banks, post-office, movie theater and other dining opportunities. We include fresh locally roasted organic coffee beans. We look forward to your stay.

Charming getaway in Homer. Cant wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this charming little gem in Homer. The apartment was clean, convenient and and exceeded expectations. What cannot be adequately described is the charm of this quaint place. Beautiful views, great location, excellent dining, and the beach just a short stroll away. Plus the added bonus of your own private hot tub. After a long day this was a welcome way to relax and wind down. Owners Andy and Sally were very helpful and friendly right from the start. We truly felt like special guests. Our only regret is that we wished we could have stayed longer!
