About Bryan Zak Owner

One winter day in February 2000, Karen and Bryan came upon the property on Baycrest Hill for sale, they pulled up to the property and walked around and Bryan said ' there is no better view in Homer than this location, can you imagine if visitors could experience this view?

Bryan Zak Owner purchased this lodge in 2007

Why Bryan Zak Owner chose Homer

The property was carefully developed for visitors with privacy in mind, exceptional views and all the comforts of home. Over the years Bryan and Karen have added many unique accommodations with the vision to provide guests with that one-of-a-kind experience.

What makes this lodge unique

The ultimate Homer Alaska experience whether your fishing, flying out for Bear Viewing, or kayaking in the bay. You'll never forget the taste from barbequing some of your very own fresh catch here on your Alaska Adventure Cabin's deck. Homer's Halibut get so big that they are affectionately called 'Barn Doors'. Charter Boat captains offer their years of experience to make your trip successful and fun.

Incredible views, fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Alaska and we chose to explore the Kenai peninsula. This home is a 10-15 minute drive to Homer Spit where we took a small charter boat to fish for Halibut and King Salmon, and is only minutes away from scenic beaches and hikes. This home is very charming and Bryan was quick to respond to any of our questions. He employs a young man who lives just a stone's throw from the home. Adam was very helpful and considerate. My 2 adult sons and I loved staying in this home. It is quite charming, clean and has astounding views even on cloudy days. There are 2 fireplaces which add to the ambience of the Alaska experience. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the property.
