We needed a place to stay for one night in Homer before we continued on to Seward. We found the Chocolate Drop to be our answer!! We were treated like family from the moment we made our reservation. Ty, the host, was charming and helpful with all of my questions about the area! We were able to check in early and then after a Midnight Sun Paddle we returned to jump in the hot tub over looking the mountains across the bay! The next morning we enjoyed a family style DELICIOUS breakfast that Ty prepared of salmon quiche, sausages, potatoes and poached red salmon. The room had a beautiful view of the mountains and the glacier, it was clean and comfortable. Most of all though, the fact that Ty was so generous and friendly and funny made this experience wonderful!
