About Doug and Gloria Stuart
Gloria and I came to Homer in 1981 from Long Island New York. Our first three children were born there and our two adopted kids were born in Alaska and came to be ours in their infancy. We have had a busy 32 years of raising children, Doug working on the North Slope for ARCO Alaska, commercial fishing and more recently working for the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge as a Naturalist on the State ferry Tustumena traveling from Homer to Dutch Harbor over 120 times. We've built a smaller home out of town to be near our children and grand children. We have loved our 'town house' and have wonderful memories of our years spent here. It's a very comfortable home from which to enjoy and 'take in' all that Homer, Alaska has to offer. Please see our expanded link to see many more pictures and our special free amenities we would like to offer you.
Doug and Gloria Stuart purchased this House in 1989
Why Doug and Gloria Stuart chose Homer
As soon as we stepped through the door with our realtor, we immediatly fell in love with 292 Mountain View Drive. It was huge compared to our homestead trailer out of town. It had bedrooms for all and a view that has awed us for 27 years besides having three levels so that children and adults can gather together or separate for entertaining. The benifits of living close to but not next to all the amenities a large, growing family needs was wonderful. Gloria and I feel that not only your needs but all your vacation wishes will be met here also.
What makes this House unique
As large as our house is it has the warmth that makes everyone feel they've come home! We know you will feel that way too. Doug and Gloria Stuart

Its spacious and has seriously some of the most breathtaking views you could ask for, we often enjoyed the deck perfect little deck out front! We cant thank Doug & Gloria enough for their wonderful hospitality, super yummy homemade jam and English muffins left for us! Thank you so very much for this wonderful home!
Hi Again Patty - Thanks for such a great review. I'm featuring it on our web site. Our home has something special going for it. We raised our family there and it definitely fits!!!!! That seems to be a common compliment in our reviews. Gloria and I strive very hard to make our family home as "just like home"to all our guests. Please consider us your Alaskan friends in South Central, perhaps our paths will cross again! Best to you and your family in the upcoming winter holiday season. Doug and Gloria Stuart
Wonderful Spacious Home with Million Dollar View
Doug and Gloria were wonderful hosts every step of the way — prompt in responding to questions as we booked, leaving Doug's homemade jelly and a loaf of local bread as a greeting, stocking the house with everything we needed for a relaxing and comfortable weekend. The 180 degree view from the dining/living room showcases the mountains, ocean and Homer spit. Our granddaughter loved pointing out each of the many times an eagle landed on the roof of the house across the street! Thanks to Gloria and Doug for making us feel so at home in their beautiful space.
