We had a wonderful stay in the Bear Paw Studio. The apartment was clean and spacious. The refrigerator was stocked with breakfast foods so we could make our own. A plus for me. The apartment was nicer than pictures show. We even had a moose come by.

We loved our stay at Cozy Cove. Marcella has thought of absolutely everything for a perfect stay. We were wow’ed by all the treats and fresh goodies we had for snacks and breakfast. I am still dreaming of the smoked salmon that Marcella makes herself. The studio is furnished with everything you need- there were so many thoughtful touches throughout. We stayed in the studio which was perfect for 2 people. Super comfortable bed and bedding, and the place is immaculate. We are incredibly picky about comfortable beds when we travel and the bed in the studio didn’t disappoint! We can’t wait to stay again!

Cozy Cove should be rated six stars, and the owner of this beautiful home, Marcella, should be rated 10 stars. Unfortunately, the star ratings only allow me to go as high as five stars. My two adult sons and I stayed in the main house at Cozy Cove. (There is a separate apartment I did jot see, but the people who stayed there for 9 days told me they loved it.) This gorgeous home, with its beautiful view from its mountain top location, is exceptional. It is clean and stocked with everything you need or want for your home away from home. It has a nice and comfortable master bedroom with bath downstairs and a bedroom and bath upstairs. There is a queen bed and two twin beds in the upstairs bedroom. The open backyard is beautifully manicured, and the view from the backyard is breathtaking. On a clear day you can see the Kachemak Bay. While the house sits near the top of a small mountain, you are less than 10 minutes from downtown Homer and 15 minutes from the Homer harbor. Next summer I would love to stay at Coxy Cove for at least a month (assuming I can break away from work to do so, which I am pretty sure will happen). Oh yea, as to Marcella, while I never personally met her, she could not have been more friendly or helpful in assisting us while we were in Homer. She help set up our ocean fishing trip for salmon and halibut, and she provided us with some great suggestions for local restaurants. She also recommended our hike to the Grewingk Glacier and help us set up the water taxi to get to the hiking area. Plus, she makes some pretty darn cookies and smoked salmon to greet you upon your arrival. I almost hate giving Cozy Cove a five star rating because I know I will be increasing my competition to stay at Marcella’s beautiful home in the summers to come. Oh well, that’s the risk I will have to take because this beautiful home should be rated much higher than the five stars allowed. Thank you Marcella for making our first trip to Homer so memorable. We will be back. Hopefully next time we will be able to personally meet you.

I wholeheartedly endorse all of the five-star reviews. My mom and I stayed in the “Bear Paw” studio while visiting Homer.  Marcella was an incredible, responsive host who goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome in her beautiful home. (She also provided wonderful recommendations for our time in Homer, and even had bear spray waiting for us.) 
 The personal touches were unbelievable. There are freshly baked goodies, and she even brought over a beautiful bouquet of peonies that she had picked!   
 The kitchen was very well-stocked with tons of food for us (including smoked salmon) and cooking appliances. The coffee maker was already prepared for us (beans loaded, just needed to turn it on). We especially loved the delectable homemade jams! 
 The studio and bathroom are both spotless  and spacious—the beds are super comfortable, and the shower was fantastic.  Marcella stocked the place with organic soaps, shampoos, and lotions.  
 The location was ideal as well: only 10 minutes from the Spit, and the ultimate retreat at the end of a long day with the hustle and bustle of downtown. Whether you want to hang out inside or outside, the place is perfect. The studio has breathtaking views and plenty of windows to let in the fresh Alaskan air. There is a beautiful backyard and porch to enjoy. 
 It was so hard to leave the Bear Paw, and we couldn’t stop talking about this place for the rest of our trip! Thank you, Marcella, for providing a home away from home!

Marcella is an amazing host who goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome in her beautiful home. House is so clean and she has adds the nicest touches to make everything feel luxurious and relaxing. We loved the sauna and the big bath tub with her essential oils and Alaskan bubbles! Not to mention the cookies and smoked salmon were fantastic. All around could not recommend this more!

We stayed 3 nights in the Bear Paw studio in September 2019 and we loved it!... from the welcome snack, to the view, the well-stocked fridge, the bear decor, Alaskan furniture, comfy bed, to the feeling of relaxation & comfort. We had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again. TIP: There is GOOD REASON for the Bear Paw Studio to get such excellent ratings!

My honey and I loved our stay here. Marcella was so relaxed and easy to deal with, super friendly. She offered to let us wash our clothes which was SO nice as we had been in Alaska for a week and were running out of fresh items. The Bear Paw studio is where we stayed and we loved it. The "room" was quite large with a TV, kitchen, table nice bed and really nice shower. This house and studio were quite large, very clean and really nice people. Highly impressed with Homer overall and loved all of the glaciers, views and wonderful food. Can't wait to go back to Homer in the future and stay with Marcella. I believe she rents the entire house out as well which would be awesome with the entire family. Great time and super nice host!!!

Near the end of a long road tour of Alaska, we stayed four nights at this delightful place. We booked the second floor "Bear Paw." It featured everything we could want for our stay. Marcella had breakfast items stocked in the refrigerator, plenty of variety. The room overlooks the bay, though nearby fires (a scourge we'd faced during all three weeks in our travels) kept us from getting the panoramic views we'd hoped for. However, seeing the beautiful flowers, getting a view of a moose and her calf were good consolation. During our stay we hiked some of the suggested sites that Marcella made, including the Carl Wynn Nature Center. Took a trip to Seldovia where we walked the Otterbahn Trail through the coastal forest to a beach where we lunched. Spent some time in Seldovia visiting the harbor and the historic district. The highlight of the trip was flying to Katmai with Alaska Bear Adventures (KBay Air). The tour was the best we have ever done with any vendor anywhere! We had opportunity to do all this because we had such a beautiful, comfortable place to spend each evening. The location of this place up the hill and away from the "city" of Homer added to its charm. We felt like we had our own bit of paradise.

Beautiful spacious home away from home. This is a great rental. Extremely clean, wonderful amenities, comfortable beds, and breathtaking views. Marcella, the owner was great to work with. We’ve stayed in several rentals & this is by far one of the nicest!
