“Wonderful Experience, Lori rocks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2010

I had the great pleasure to stay at the Bay Avenue Bad and Breakfast the weekend of 10/11 July, 2010.

It was fabulous!

The rooms are clean and comfortable and very well kept. They also have really good shades, which that might sound a little crazy but when the sun goes down at midnight and is up again at like 4am and you sleep like me- it's important and I was very thankful!

The service was simply fantastic, Lori is a wonderful woman that makes it feel like you're right at home. She is also a fantastic cook and the breakfast assortment was awesome. Everything from cold cereal and muffins up to eggs and a really cool apple breakfast dish that (and I'm sorry Lori) I have no idea what it's called but it was really good!

I would absolutely stay there again and have already reccomended it to family that is thinking about traveling to Alaska!

Lori was amazing! My brother was recently married in Homer and his new wife's entire family and mine, including my partner and some family friends all stayed at Bay Avenue. Lori was like staying with an old friend. She greeted us when we arrived and showed us where everything was. Our room was beautiful, clean and quiet. She cooked a wonderful breakfast for everyone in the morning, including setting out cold cereal, yogurt, cereal bars, coffee and tea. The views are amazing, it is nestled off the main road but is still very close to everything. It was a relaxing experience and should I be back in Homer I will know exactly where to stay.

We were a church mission group with 21 and rented out the entire B&B. Lori was wonderful and prepared all of the details for us. She was tireless in making sure we were set and all ready to go. We took over the place and were allowed to use all of the facilities to cook our own meals which saved us a bundle.

The B&B is right on the bluff overlooking the bay. The views out the bayside rooms, kitchen, living room and deck are magnificent. We would wake up to Bald Eagles flying around and see the mountain ranges and glaciers across the bay.

The B&B has 7 rooms with attached baths in the main house, and then room for another 10 or so in the attached bunkhouse and suite, with another two bathrooms. This provided our group with great sleeping arrangements in a really wonderful place. The ability to cook our own meals along with the laundry capability really helped us out.

All in all a great time at a wonderful place with really nice hosts. The price was very fair as Homer is not cheap and Lori really worked with us to come up with a reasonable package.

Thanks again

Kurt Johnson

Bay Ave runs along the waterfront, the views from the deck are mesmerizing. Hostess Lori, was sweet, gracious and accommodating. The breakfasts were delicious and varied (and the coffee outstanding)! I've never stayed at a B&B that was as much like being home: access to the kitchen, great restaurant, event and activity recommendations. Our reservations were meticulously confirmed and all our needs were met in a timely and friendly manner. I can't wait to come back - hopefully early this Fall with my sweetheart! Thanks Lori, you MADE our vacation.

Our hosts were wonderful, helpful, and the room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Breakfasts every morning were unique and delicious. Our room had a beautiful view, and we took advantage of the on-site hot tub. It was a 4+ mile walk to the end of the Homer Spit, and a couple miles to the downtown area. Great food, great fishing, and nice people throughout Homer.

Mark and Laurie have you feeling like a family member from your arrival. They are welcoming, warm and very outgoing. Nothing is too much trouble. The house is warm, welcoming and clean. We are looking forward to a return visit in a couple of years. The one thing the traveler should be aware of is that although breakfast is a delicious treat, it may not always be served on time, so if you have an early appointment, you may want to take this into consideration. Usually the reasonfor the delay is that Laurie is involved with her guests, talking and helping with directions and suggestions and time gets away from her. Laurie is totally into her guests and their needs and this makes the stay so very personal; like staying with a friend from way back!

A warm and friendly place to stay - truly just like being in someone's home. Easy access to both the Spit and downtown Homer, in great surroundings. Lori and Mark present a great place to stay in this funky town! Many thanks
