About Cherish

We raised our family in this fun home filled with warm wood accents and the ever changing beauty of the Kachemak Bay through out the house. With our children grown we want to spend more time where they are and to share SongBee with others who want to experience Alaska, Homer style.

Cherish purchased this house in 1999

Why Cherish chose Homer

Close to town and the spit, yet nestled half way up the hill gives you easy access to activities and shopping with beautiful views and a quiet peaceful setting.

What makes this house unique

A fully equipped kitchen, extensive DVD library, piano and multiple cozy spots to read or catch up on your email provide you with all you need to relax after fishing or to cook up your catch watching the ever changing drama of the view.

It's all about the view!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four ladies had a wonderful stay. The house is mostly just as described and nothing beat the deck! We spent each evening relaxing an enjoying the ever-changing view of the glaciers and bay. Good location for getting into town and down to the spit quickly. We really appreciated the momma moose and her twins making an appearance on the lawn one morning.

It wasn't a big deal, but it would have been nice to have a table on the deck. Also, if you're here in the summer and light sensitive, there is no way to make the room in the loft dark.

Serene, million dollar view and comfortable. You won't be disappointed.

Fantastic house!

We loved our stay at the Songbee house! What amazing views throughout. The caretaker was very prompt and helpful. The house was very comfortable. We saw moose right out the window and loved the location. We will definitely be back.

Don' stay ANYWHERE else

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with a couple of family members for 8 days in June of 2015. We looked at many different options and decided on the SongBee Rest House. If you are reading this review, Book This House! You will not regret it at all. Everything was just as advertised and our experience was amazing. If you want peace and quiet, beautiful scenery and comfortable accommodations, this is the place for you.

This house was amazing in the view and room enough for our whole group. It was cozy and comfortable--everything we needed was available. Nicely decorated and very comfortable beds. Loved the deck and the grill was nice as an option! Thank you and we will be back someday....

  • 5 of 5

My Family of 4, plus my parents and brother visited here for five days! The stay was incredible. Plenty of room for all of us and a well equipped kitchen and BBQ kept us eating well the entire trip. The view is incredible and there is a trail system from the property that is very nice. The owners even provide a bear bell for you treks through the forest.

The piano was a great bonus. My daughter would practice daily and her grandparents absolutely loved it! A very fun cottage in the woods with all the amenities of home!
