“Birthday Get-a-way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

This is a fabulous place to stay. The rooms are very nice, the setting is quiet and serene, the hot tub is fabulous. The winery staff and owners were so nice and welcoming. I enjoyed the chocolates and wine in my room and they even put together a little tray of appetizers when I arrived. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!

This is a really special spot. Rooms are cozy and alaskan. The hosts are incredible and the surprise for us of wine & chocolates was delightful. We would certainly come back and recommend the spot to others!

Room Tip: All are great!

Green Features: So fun to see a wind turbine on the property! We also enjoyed the special Alaskan brewed wine.

This new year celebration my husband and I were reflecting on the fun we had this past year. Our highlight of course was getting married in June during one of the prettiest (warmest) summers in Alaska. We were very thankful that we chose to venture to Homer for our honeymoon and were blessed to find the Bear Creek Winery and Lodge. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute! From the warm welcome, the view, the hot tub, and even the grill- we couldn't have felt more relaxed and at peace after the wedding craziness (the wine tasting helped take the edge off too...). The room felt rustic but still luxurious. Looking forward to our next trip! Cheers to 2014 and Bear Creek Winery and Lodging! Thank you for a great memory!

Hubby and I spent the night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Everything about this place is awesome. Upon our arrival, Colleen got us settled in and gave us a small tray of her delicious smoked halibut spread on crackers. We then set out to taste some of the wineries awesome wines. Had a delightful dinner at Cafe Cups and returned to our beautiful suite at BCW. It was a beautiful evening in the cedar sit and soak hottub. Chilly with a star filled sky. Our suite was gorgeous! From the layout, amenities, craftsmanship, to the decore! All I can say is WOW! The next morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast bagel and coffee at The Bagel Store, compliments of BCW. Thank you so much for a great stay, we should have booked 2 nights...maybe next time!

I am glad that you share the idea that BCW Lodging is worth a two night stay. A two night stay provides a truly relaxing and rejuvenating experience and we provide numerous amenities that our guests can take advantage of. It also allows our guests to enjoy some of the attractions of Homer which, during the winter, includes art galleries, Nordic skiing/snowshoeing, stunning views, snow machining, live music, museums, and more. Don't forget that a stay at our Lodging also includes a complimentary wine tasting.

Cheers,
Louis Maurer

My girlfriend and I had the best time at Bear Creek Winery. I wanted to do something special for a friend of mine who helped me out this past summer, and since I've never been to Bear Creek Winery (although I've heard so much about it), I decided that'd be the perfect "thank you" location since we both like our wine. Colleen was very informative and knew her wine. She even went above and beyond and made a reservation for us for dinner that evening at Cups and gave us the phone number to call a CAB when we were ready to go to dinner. And who wouldn't love the John Wayne cabin?! After dinner we did have a clear night to sit in the hot tub--very nice! Even though it was a cold couple of days in November, it was absolutely the perfect relaxing weekend we both needed--thank you!

Spent couple nights at the winery and loved the little cabin. We used the hot tub and sauna and the view from the tub is AMAZING. Mountains and glaciers perfect view. Walked around the gardens, visited the tasting room and got special tour of the winery. Fascinating! Especially loved the halibut appetizer and house wine provided our first night. The staff were so friendly and accomodating that we felt like family. We picked up some salmon and used the grill to prepare romantic dinner. Very nice! Will be back if ever in Homer again. View is priceless!

Room Tip: Go off season for best prices! The weather was perfect Fall temps!

Very charming and romantic- We spent our wedding night here I couldn't have asked for anything more. The staff has thought of every detail in these beautiful rooms (I was really excited when I found popcorn, since I had hardly even eaten at the wedding!) The grounds are pristine, the hot tub toasty, and the wine delicious. Bill and Dorothy's special touches made our night and morning exceptionally special. Thank you guys!
