We just spent seven blissful days in this bed and breakfast. And we loved it SOOO much we plan to go back next summer. The views are incredible of the bay and the glaciers. We are bird watchers so hearing the multitude of birds every night with the windows open was delightful. We could go for long walks during the day. The sights and activities of Homer are not that far away-- well worth the short drive into "town". We did several day activities and Don was very accomodating with the breakfast timing.
His breakfasts were creative, enjoyable and delicious. Always fresh fruit and yogurt and then a total variety every day of delights from stuffed French toast with local syrups such as fireweed ( and of course real maple syrup-- both warmed up!). The truly best part was Don and Sharron's local knowledge of which guide would suit our desires for fishing or bird watching or photography.
The house is honestly immaculate.Totally pristine. They do have two very well behaved dogs which stay in their apartment but you really could not "tell" they had dogs otherwise.
They are such nice and welcoming hosts. We have stayed in innumerable B and Bs and this is our favorite.
We stayed in the "Christmas" apartment. Every room has a theme and they are very much into details of the decorations. This allowed us to do laundry, have a refrigerator and more room. Bed was very comfy, linens were nice. The kitchen is fine for general cooking. Has everything one might expect in an apartment type situation. They were most helpful-- we forgot ziploc bags to freeze our salmon we caught and they gave us some so we didn't have to go back to the store!
Overall incredible place to stay.
