The views from this property are lovely. Don makes wonderful breakfasts and supports whatever whacky schedule you may have based on your excursions. The airplane room was large and clean. Sharron leaves very detailed instructions and keeps everything fresh. The surprise was having a helicopter land in the yard to take some of the other guests bear viewing. Ask Don for recommendations on excursions, he is really good at it!
I woke up every morning to a smiling and warm host waiting with a hot breakfast and coffee. The views from every window in the main kitchen and dinning room area were of two incredible mountains with glaciers across the bay. WOW! The house was clean. The rooms were cozy and comfortable. Immaculate home! Don and his wife Sharron were super helpful and made great recommendations. I would stay there again! My wife and 15 year old loved the cozy cabin feel. A must if you are looking to stay in the area. It's only a 15 to 20 minute drive to all the towns hot spots. They do have a no shoes on in the house policy, so be prepared to take off your shoes at the door. Other than that, it was great!
Homer, Alaska has something for everyone! And to enhance your visit, stay at the Timber Bay B&B which is not far from town but when you see this place amidst views of mountains & Glaciers across Kachemak Bay you will be glad you did! And the gourmet breakfasts are not to be missed! I loved especially the Oatmeal Souflle and the Eggs Benedict...Gorgeous rooms, ample areas designated for guests to lounge and take in the views, wildlife, and serenity. Don't miss the outdoor jacuzzi as your eyes feast on "in your face" glaciers! The hosts, Don & Sharron Cotogno, are hands on for your needs but never overbearing.
Outstanding B&B. We had a great time and we highly recommend it. This B&B is located about 14 miles east of Homer so you are definitely not in town. The view across Kachemak Bay was simply stunning. While we were having our 1st breakfast a Mama Moose and her baby strolled by the house eating in the brush located next to the house. To top it off we were picked up by a helicopter in the backyard for our bear watching expedition by Kirsten (pilot) of Alaska Ultimate Safaris. Don (B&B owner) recommended that we go on a bear watching tour and I am glad we did. He told Kirsten that if she picked us up in the backyard he would make her breakfast as well. So, we had an enjoyable breakfast Kirsten. After breakfast it was off to see the bears.
We were a party of 6 and stayed at the Canine Room for 2 nights. We were very comfortable and the common areas are very spacious. The views from the house and our room were amazing. The mountain and glaciers are breathtaking. The breakfast was delicious and abundant. Don and Sharron are great hosts. They gave us lots tips for Homer and other places in Alaska. They are very nice to talked to. The house is 15 miles from Homer but for us was not an issue as we left in the morning and spent the day in Homer to come back after dinner. Highly recommend it and looking forward to come back.
