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 Kenai Peninsula

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.

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....

Glacial Paradise

  • 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!

Perfect Home-Away-From-Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Songbee with two other couples and fell in love with the place. The location is excellent, just a few minutes from downtown Homer, off of East End Rd. And the views from the deck are spectacular. Actually, there is a gorgeous view from every bedroom in the house! The kitchen is well stocked, and the upstairs bathroom is very spacious. We had a little trouble with the washing machine while we were there, but it wasn't a problem. There is a laundry mat at the bottom of the hill, so we just washed our clothes there, then took them back to dry while we played games. We thorougly enjoyed the game cabinet! There are books and comfy chairs everywhere. I would highly recommend this home. We will be back someday, and hopefully we will be able to stay at Songbee again. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home.

Nice house with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This house has a great location up on the hill overlooking Homer's bay and the amazing mountains on the other side. Almost every room in the house has a great view. The views are probably the most spectacular of any lodging I've ever stayed in! Distance from the town is perfect--SafeWay is about 5 minutes away but you don't feel that you are right in town.

Kitchen is very good and well equipped. The beds are comfortable and the living room furniture is quite fine. Lots of interesting books around the house.

We do have a few tiny gripes though. The washer and dryer weren't working--we were provided money to use a laundromat, which is a nice gesture, but it is better to have a washer and dryer. Not a big deal but I infer the problem has been there for a while, and it should be fixed. The water heater is small, but this is probably out of the owner's control, since the water seems to come from a tank and is probably limited in quantity. It's a remote place so you can't expect perfection. The location is a bit tricky to find at first and google maps doesn't really work that well--would be nice if owners would draw a decent hand-drawn map of the roads on the hill and scan it and make that available.

Despite these minor issues we are giving this 5 stars and would definitely recommend the property. Also, Homer is also a terrific town to visit, with startlingly good restaurants.

Homer Fishing Adventure

  • 5 of 5

The house was as advertised, clean with all the amenities. Beautiful view from the deck of Kachemack Bay, mountains and glaciers on the Peninsula. We had cocktails on the deck while viewing the scenery and grilling our catch(salmon and halibut) on the pit provided on the deck. Short drive to town and the Spit to fish. Captain Patties will cook your catch if so desired on the spit! Plenty of shopping in town and on the Spit.

Plan on booking next year!!
