“Great view but far from town”
Reviewed July 16, 2011

Seems all B and B's in Alaska are done for the income. This one was done well in that the room, a new room built well, over the garage, had a great view of the bay and the Homer Spit, but we never met the owners and the breakfast was in the room the night before, bagels, muffin, OJ, and coffee. It s a drive from town too - about 15 minutes - and we like to interact with the owners, ask about the area and where to eat etc so we had no chance to do that. For privacy and quiet and a good sleep ( as best as can be had when the sun does not go down), it was very nice.

I am somewhat puzzled by this review as the guests state "they never met the owners" when indeed they met my husband and me the morning after their one night stay. They seemed very happy and stated "everything was fine" and were on their way to sit by the pond and have their coffee. They also left a nice note in the guest book. Our model and marketing is around privacy. I realize there are two types of B and B guests, those who like to be served breakfast and interact with the owners a lot and those who like their privacy. We cater to the a latter. We are COMPLETELY available to our guests and post in three locations, our room notice posted on the wall, a note on the door and the welcome letter I send ahead, to please call us at anytime with requests. Sometimes we do not see a guests at all and other times we have see them a lot and have made some great and long lasting friends. Our room is immaculate, high end construction, with organic products, homemade jam from our yard and locally made soaps. You can sit in your bed and look at a glacier plus see views from every direction of the unit, some of our beautiful bluff behind us. Other than our roof which you look over there is not another building in site, just sweeping views of the bay. I feel that is an amazing value. I am so sorry and still a bit shocked that our guests were not completely satisfied. So if you are an independent traveler who likes privacy, quiet, gorgeous views, a great nights sleep away from the tourist area and hosts who are completely available but will not bug you then we are the place for you!

We loved our stay at Stellar View in Homer! It was a few minutes outside of town, but totally worth it! It is a private room, with a private bath, in a private building, with a private entrance! For the price, that is an amazing deal. The bed was soooo comfortable, and we could see glaciers from bed. The bathroom was very nice and there were homemade Alaskan soaps to sample. Our breakfast was already in our room for the morning... cereals, oatmeals, bagels, homemade muffins, and the refrigerator was full of everything we might possibly need (we were very impressed with how well thought out it was). Organic coffee and a variety of teas were supplied for us. We really liked having a private breakfast (without the awkward morning around the table with strangers that usually accompanies a b&b).

The owners were very friendly, there for our every need, but let us have our space. They went out of their way to help us with some special requests, and we were so grateful. The balance was perfect for us and we would absolutely stay again, but hopefully for longer next time.

Clean, comfortable, relaxing... we liked staying here better than the 4-star hotel in Anchorage!

This was the best place we stayed on our trip to Alaska, especially after the contrast in accomodations the previous night in Seward. The view is great; the space is cozy, private and chic (without being pretentious); and everything was so well thought out and with such nice touches...homemade and delicious muffins that awaited us, locally made soap in the bath, fluffy duvet, art work, lots of teas to choose from, salmon cream cheese etc. We were really sad that we were only here for a night and wished we could have stayed longer. The property has a garden area/pond where you can just hang out, and the room is in a separate building on the second floor so it's very secluded. One thing to note is that it isn't in "city" or spit part of Homer but rather in the surrounding hills -- about a ten minute drive. Like Homer, it's a very special place.
