Bryn-Teg Cottage (Welsh for house on a hill) is a charming 1200 plus square foot house with two bedrooms, two bathrooms on private, beautifully landscaped ground. The cottage is fully furnished right down to Homer's own locally roasted coffee. It is also tastefully decorated with many pictures, curios and books on the 49th State.
The Cottage is located on East Skyline Drive, a picturesque drive less than 6 miles from downtown Homer. Homer offers an endless array of recreational and site seeing opportunities that will leave you with great memories!
After a day of fishing, biking, hiking, skiing, berry picking or sightseeing, you will look forward to returning to the cottage to watch the beautiful sunset of Cook Inlet. In the winter the magnificient northern lights often light up the sky.

My Grandparents were true Alaskan Pioneers! My Grandfather, a Welshman with an adventuress spirit, traveled to the Klondike in 1898 in search of gold. They later settled in Seldovia, Alaska where my Mother and I were born. We moved to Homer a couple years after the Great Alaska Earthquake of 1964.
I have lived in Homer for almost 45 years and have enjoyed every moment of it.
My husband and I built our log home almost 34 years ago, which sits adjacent to our guest house.
We built our guest house for my mother in law who lived in White Sulphur Springs, Montana. After a few health issues she wanted to be closer to her children and grandchildren in her old age.
She loved living her last few years in her little cottage watching the wildlife, flowers and sunsets and Mother Nature at it's finest.
We appreciate Homer visitors enjoying all the bounty and beauty that Kachemak Bay and surrounding areas have to offer. Every day is different, every sunset, sunrise, the color of the sky, clouds...just a never ending pallet of life in Homer by the sea!
This house was so cute. It is decorated with many antiques and unique items. Yet it was very comfortable. We were so happy to have two bathrooms and to have the availability of laundry facilities. Plenty of room was available for two couples and our grandson to have privacy. Wandering in the garden was very relaxing. The flowers and the veggies were all beautiful. The view was beautiful-when the weather was clear! We were able to see down to the spit. The ride up was a little farther that we realized, but the view and accommodations were well worth it!! We would definitely stay there again!!
My four friends and I recently spent 5 days/nights at Bryn-Teg. The home was extremely nice, comfortable, pristine clean, with the owners being the nicest people you'd like to meet. Their hospitality, warmness, and effort to make our visit enjoyable could not have been greater. I would highly recommend these fine people and their cottage to everyone who wants an "Alaskan experience."
This home for our stay was amazing!!! The owners were very kind and helpful in planning our fishing trip, and stay. The house and views were fabulous, our only regret is we should have stayed longer. Highly recommend to anyone going to Homer, AK.
My wife and I stayed at this home for eight days. Bobbi and Lyni provided sunshine throughout our stay, a moose who came through several times, fresh fruit when we arrived, and other goodies that made our vacation so relaxing and enjoyable! How could I not wholeheartedly recommend this rental. Homer is a wonderful setting made thoroughly enjoyable at this home!
We spent 3 weeks with Bobby and Lyni in Homer having probably one of the best vacations of our lives. We traveled the Kenai Peninsula and all the roads and byways we could find in Homer, returning to our cottage on the hill. It was our home each night. Bobby and Lyni were warm and gracious and we felt part of their family. They gave us ideas where to explore and what to see from the prospective of people from Homer. We brought good weather with us and when the rains started we went back to Arizona. Their gardens are beautiful. Lyni is from an Alaskan Pioneer Family, and she and Bobby gave us information about the area you would not receive if you stayed other places. With the time we had, we really grew to love our cottage and the area more each day. We did things ranging from fishing, watching moose, touring across the bay, to wine tasting. They keep the cottage very clean and so, so special. We thank them for welcoming us into their Cottage on the hill! We hope to come again next year....
We spent two nights at Bryn-Teg cottage and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Homer. Our party had two couples and two kids, and the sleeping arrangements worked out great. The cottage was just as advertised, spotless and very well furnished. Thoughtful items like milk and orange juice were waiting in the fridge along with fresh baked cookies. The gardens were lovely even though summer is late in coming to Alaska this year, and the hosts Lyni and Bob were extremely gracious and easy going. We wish that we could have stayed longer but were lucky to have found a couple of free nights. Make sure to plan ahead.
The cottage is a short walk from the Wynn Nature Center. Crossmam Ridge Trail and the Homestead Trail are also nearby
