“Locals Secret”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

My husband and I have enjoyed numerous visits to this lovely Inn. We are always greeted warmly by the staff. Our favorite treat is the side-by side massage! Usually proceeded by a soaking in the
hot-tub that over-looks beautiful Kachemak Bay. When we leave, we are re-newed, re-freshed, and so relaxed. This is a must "stop" for any traveler who visits Homer!

Loved this place! The views are spectacular and the owners are helpful without being obtrusive. Paul was very helpful with changes and giving pointers of places to go/sights. It was almost like having our very own place. On the last day as we packed there was a very small amount of noise as we packed, didn't even notice it honestly. Paul made a point of apologizing and was very gracious. It's not a question of if I'll stay there again, it's only a question of when!

We stayed in the glacier suite, which has it's own private deck overlooking Kachemak Bay. We loved our stay. Here are the details:

Pros:
- The VIEW, The View, The View!!
- Bed was comfortable and room was well provisioned (microwave / fridge with good coffee and tea / oatmeal).
- Free Merlot (made by owner and tasted great!)
- Plenty of places to enjoy the view (Deck, shared swing, chairs around fire pit, etc.)
- Quiet and private
- Great location: quick drive to spit or downtown homer.
- Good WiFi: We were able to stream movies on Netflix on our laptop with no issues.
- The view!!! :-)


Cons:
- Stairs were not in place yet for the season so we couldn't walk to the beach from the property. Owner said we could still when I called, but all the access in the area was through private land.
- No one was ever at the registration desk and we had to call / leave a message when we had any questions.

Final Thoughts:
I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for the wonderful stay!!

Room Tip: Spring the few extra $$ for the Glacier Room!

Thanks for the input! So glad you had a great time...
Our apologies on the staircase down to the beach...we should have had that in place for the summer season earlier. Next time you stay with us, please come enjoy a free massage!

We have stayed at the Homer Inn and Spa and thought it was perfect. Ocean out your front door, hot tub and so very relaxing!! The room we enjoyed was very clean and stock with everything you could need. We hope to be back soon!

This place was amazing! The owners were extremely accommodating to all of our needs. I was meeting my fiance in Alaska for his 2 week leave from deployment and his leave dates changed 4 days before I was supposed to depart. The owners were extremely helpful in changing the date or our reservations and worked with me to find days that worked. We booked a couples massage and also the flight tour over to Seldovia. Everything was taken care of and I didnt have to worry about a thing. The wine was AMAZING! I would go back just for the blackberry Cabernet. :) The rooms were comfortable and the view of the ocean was beautiful to wake up to. We also loved the outdoor hot tub that was available. With the 23 hours of sunlight there were many opportunities to use it by ourselves.

This review is a bit dated because we visited about 2 years ago, but I had to come back to tell people how nice this was. The hosts were just the right amount of helpful. If we needed anything they were right on it, if not, we were left alone. I could go fishing at the spit for the day while my wife enjoyed the massage therapy. The rooms were nice and the views could not be better. Close enough to see and be apart of Homer without being in town. We brought back the Salmon we caught and placed it on their grill, offering it to anyone staying there. I would definately stay here again with my wife.

You feel like part of the family here. Grab a bottle of wine in the main room and a couple of wine glasses and take it ouside to make a fire and sit around the fire and watch the ocean. Now that is truly restful. Bring back the left over wine for the next person.

Room decorating was a little too funky. It had a microwave and refrig, cups, bowls and many amenities. This is right on the water. The room had a flat screen, but no cable hook up and no TV reception :-(

Thank you for your input! We have chosen to go "TV Free" (movies only) in order for our guests to have the most peaceful, serene, and quiet experience...and help our guests get in touch with the matchless beauty outside their view windows. Of course, we have very high speed internet for our guests..and they can plug their laptops into the flatscreens via an HDMI connection.
