We stayed for 4 nights in the Mount Douglas room. It was clean, quiet and one of the most comfortable beds we slept in in Alaska. We didn't do the bear viewing trip but next time it will be on our to do list. Talking to people who did it said it was great. The location is also good. Easy... More

The hotel and staff are wonderful!! The bed was VERY comfortable and the view from our cabin was the best! The only thing that really suprised me is that Homer is a fishing town and they do not have a freezer for your fish. I will be back to Homer in a few years and I will for sure stay... More

Our family of four stayed in the lodge two nights during our two week Alaskan adventure, this was probably our 2nd favorite accommodation of all the places we stayed! We found the room clean and smelt fresh. Beds were very comfortable. We arrived late and left early so we never got a chance to meet the owners, but via email... More

It is very hard to find a nice clean hotel in Alaska. This hotel had the most comfortable bed's, linens and pillows. They have duvets over the comforter which they wash each time a new guest comes in. It is right on the lake so you can fly in by floatplane dock and walk right up to your room. We... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. Very peaceful and relaxing, no wifi or phone service. Very comfy beds, had a great sleep. The hot tub by the lake is a bonus. We caught halibut and cooked in on the BBQ outside our room. Would recommend.

If you want your Alaska experience to be something more than a few days in a generic hotel room, this would be an ideal choice. We stayed in a cute, two-story cabin that had everything we needed for our stay, including a kitchenette with stove burners, a small fridge, and glasses, plates, and utensils; a living room with a sofa,...

This was one of the best places that we stayed in during our nine day Alaskan vacation. Situated on a beautiful lake this is a perfect restful location from which to explore the Homer area. The owners are warm and gentle which makes you feel at home. Ask for one of the lakefront rooms...it is worth the extra cost. And... More

We always wanted to visit Alaska. We were not interested in a crowded cruise. We decided to concentrate on the Kenai peninsula, specifically Homer, for the halibut and salmon. Float Plane Lodge took care of the details. We went all out and got the week adventure package! Two days of fishing (brought home 150# of fish!), kayaking and bear viewing... More

Craig and Sarah, We had such a great time at the lodge, it is beautiful there and all your people are fantastic!! Our room was everything we could have asked for, and more! We loved sitting on the deck just relaxing, watching the planes take off and land, talking to other guests, talking to Craig and your son, and just... More

This was a disappointment. The location is quite nice with a lake view. We weren't made to feel particularly welcome, just handed the room key and told to take our bags to our cabin. The standard cabin we were given was much smaller than we had been told by our agent- a quick word and we were allocated a bigger... More
