My husband and I stayed here for only 1 night but we really enjoyed it. The room was beautiful and the breakfast was wonderful. We had great conversations with the owners, who were very helpful with information on places to go, and things to see. The house is beautiful and we would love to stay here again in the future.

My husband and I had such a wonderful time staying with Rosie and Erless. Not only the view is amazing from the house, the hosts are so warm and nice to make our trip memorable. Rosie is such a sweetheart that she cares everyone's stories and needs.

The room was lovely and clean. And our hosts were so friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed chatting with them. Rosy makes delicious breakfasts and the view from the lounge room and outside on their outdoor area of the Spit and Glacier is stunning.

We only had the opportunity to be in Homer for one night (May 30th)...and we made the PERFECT choice on where to stay! The views from the living area were breathtaking! We stayed in the Forget Me Not room. It was off the kitchen and on the other side of the home from the other bedrooms, which seems to give... More

We just completed our stay at this bed and breakfast. All of the previous reviews are spot on. The view is magnificent. The two days we spent there the breakfasts were fantastic. Family oriented conversations that we had with the hosts were extremely enjoyable. I could go on and on and on. But, simply put, this is the place to... More

We spent two nights here and it was an amazing view! Rosy and Erliss were fantastic hosts and the breakfast was tasty and beautifully laid out. Sitting in the living room or on the several decks you have a perfect sweeping view of the spit and the ocean. The terraced decks were just the most relaxing sitting areas. We even... More

Rosie and Erl are the perfect hosts. They made our visit to Alaska even more enjoyable with their hospitality and stories. Highly recommend this place for any visitor. Plus Rosie's French toasts are to-die-for!!!!

Rosy Outlook's proprietors chose a prime spot for views of sea and mountain. I enjoyed meeting and getting to know the hosts. I was in four different hotels/b&bs in Alaska and this one was the best. My suggestion: if you go to Homer, consider staying with Rosy and Erless.

My first experience staying in a B&B and they set the bar pretty high! They laid breakfast out and the view was amazing! The garden was just beautiful as well! Every tip and suggestion they offered was right on point! I would highly recommend this to any visitor local or otherwise!

More home visit than B&B, this is the quintessential old-fashioned bed & breakfast where you stay in someone's house—not the room over the garage. Rosie & Erliss are hands-down the warmest and most inviting proprietors I've ever met! They're genuinely interested in their guests and equally share their Alaskan stories and knowledge. Their kindness makes you feel like your visiting... More
