During our long vacation in Alaska, in july 2009, we opted to spend 4 nights in Homer and booked a room in the Bluffview Lodge at the Driftwood Inn.
We can honestly say that everything there was beyond our expectations.
The room was nicely furnished, spacious and very luminous: the view of Bishop’s Beach and Kachemak Bay from all the windows and the terrace was fantastic and every morning, while enjoying breakfast, we could spot bald eagles and cranes. There was a lot of space in the walk-in closet and the bathroom featured a jacuzzi and a huge shower. In the ground floor of the Bluffview Lodge guests can also use a communal kitchen, well stocked with all the accessories, and a living room.
The rooms were very clean and the staff was always friendly and helpful.
Homer is a place worth visiting and a perfect base to take a floatplane to Katmai National Park to admire (and take beautiful photos of) grizzly bears fishing salmon. An experience we'll never forget.
Hopefully we'll go back there again in the future, possibly staying at the Driftwood Inn.
