They are off the grid but we always had lights, TV, and hot water when ever we needed it. A full kitchen room available for guest... More

We called Ken at the last minute to book a stay. Fortunately a large party had just left and they had availibility. The owners or caretakers, Jill and George, worked with our 1 a.m. arrival time without hesitation, unlocked our room for our family, and "left the lights on" for us. Couldn't have asked for a better reception for a... More

We had lots of room for the kids to sleep. Carl is the treasure to the Bear Essentials cabins. It is kind of far out there but I didn't mind knowing... More

We have stayed at Bear Essentials the last two years on our trek from Nebraska to fish halibut with Catchalot Charters. The hosts are great people and will do everything to ensure your stay is pleasant. Off the beaten path, it is very relaxing. We stayed in the Snowshoe Room and slept six with the fold out futon on overlook... More

Recently returned from a vacation to Alaska and wanted to recommend one placed we stayed, Bear Essentials in Anchor Point (about 20-30 minutes from Homer). If you want to get off the beaten path and enjoy nature and good company at reasonable prices, then this is the place to stay. Bear Essentials is located about 2-3 miles off Sterling Highway...
