Overview

About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 2-8)

An attractive 2000 square-foot, chalet-style private home that sleeps eight, located 15 miles off east end road known for its stunning views.

Large windows with a southern exposure maximize the warmth of long daylight hours, so you can enjoy the scenery and wildlife—moose in the yard, eagles swooping across the sky, sandhill cranes, hawks, or occasionally a bear. Relax on the large deck and enjoy a sunset with views of kachemak bay, snow-capped mountains and breath-taking glaciers. Or soak in the outdoor hot tub after a day of fishing in the halibut fishing capital of the world.

The house has an open design with a vaulted ceiling offering plenty of space to gather together to visit with friends and family. A large kitchen is fully equipped with all the amenities you will need to prepare your catch of the day or grill on the outdoor bbq.

The spacious upstairs master loft presents more spectacular views, a private half-bath and queen bedroom set. On the main level, with living room, dining room and kitchen, is one bedroom with a double bed. Unwind in the jacuzzi tub located in the large bathroom just across the hall. The lower floor offers the third bedroom with a queen bed and recreation room with a pull out couch, laundry and another full bath with a shower. Wi-fi, wii, playstation, dvd and cable tv are all available to make your stay comfortable in every way. Grounds keeper is onsite.

Nearby is the state recreation park overflowing with wildflowers in season, where you can have a casual walk and picnic or a hike featuring fantastic views of kachemak bay and cook inlet.

Homer offers salmon and halibut fishing, kayaking, miles of beach to explore, clamming, whale watching, birding, marine tours, museums, art galleries, hiking, horseback riding, biking, fly-in bear viewing, scenic flight tours, spas and a variety of great restaurants featuring local seafood and other tasty dishes. There is something for everyone here.

We look forward to helping your homer, Alaska vacation be your best vacation ever!

No smoking for the comfort of all our guests. Thank you.

About Sherrie

Having lived in Alaska for over 30 years we had to move our family in 1997 due to medical problems. When we were able we wanted to move back but had reservations of trying to return to the past. So we moved to Homer, a new location for us and have loved it. The first time my son saw it, he arrived on our fishing boat and said it was the most beautiful place he had ever seen.

Sherrie purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Sherrie chose Kenai Peninsula

Quiet, away from busyness of town, family friendly.

What makes this chalet unique

Sunshine all day long, 20 hours of daylight, soaking in the outdoor hottub or taking in the views from the deck all seem magical. The quiet lifts your spirit and fills you. It is the perfect place to relax.

2nd stay in Homer in this house. We love it here!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed at this lovely house in Homer. It truly feels like home. Lots of room to spread out for the 3 of us. The owners are easy to work & keep the house in great order. Sherrie & Marcus offered us the use of their smoker which we used to smoke salmon. Our 10 day stay was restful & we did some fishing, sightseeing which isn't too hard...all you have to do is look out the windows to see beautiful mountains, greenery, and a moose that we saw twice in the yard. There is one bedroom on each level, bath w/shower on ground floor, full bath on main floor but no shower, 1/2 bath on 3rd floor. We took turns in the shower. Washer & dryer on ground floor. Kitchen well stocked. Clean, clean. Homer is a laid back type of small town bolstered by tourists in the summer. There are 2 grocery stores, a McDonalds, Two Sisters Bakery (try the sticky buns, my oh my) and the Homer spit which houses the fishing fleet, the Salty Dog bar & various restaurants & shops. The house is located about a 20 minute drive outside of town but not to worry, the scenery is spectacular going back & forth. Hard to keep your eyes on the road. We hope to go back again next year.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this home very much. This house was very clean, beautiful and a wonderful place for our vacation. The only thing that is a problem is lack of cell phone service out this far from Homer. We would all highly recommend the home. There are three bedrooms with wonderful beds. There are two TVs with several premium channels. There are a few DVDs available but for families and children. My only caution is the steep stairs inside which may be a problem for the elderly. The drive to Homer is beautiful, so no problem being out in the woods. btw, there are a few neighbors, you can see their roofs. The owners are very nice and gracious.

Homer Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, quiet home. The location was very peaceful and definitely out of the way. Inside they have provided everything down to board games and a fresh flower to make our stay enjoyable. On our last night we saw a mother moose and 2 calves near by.

Perfect family getaway home

  • 4 of 5

We simply loved our stay in Homer at this property. It was clean, roomy and had plenty of sleeping space for everyone. The kitchen utensils were adequate for our cooking needs and all the beds were comfortable. It was like staying at a lovely B&B.

Homer is the Halibut Fishing Capital of the World. Salmon fishing is plentiful in the rivers or by charter in the bay. On the Homer Spit is the local Fishing Hole for those less inclined to open water.

Water taxis are available to schedule your trip across Kachemak Bay to hike to Grewingk Glacier or many other destinations including the sweet fishing village of Seldovia. Twice a day are trips to Halibut Cove where you can spend the day walking on the boardwalk, visiting the local shops with handmade crafts and dine at The Saltery Restaurant.

Two acclaimed museums spark the interest of all who visit. Islands and Oceans Visitor Center illuminates the natural habitat of the area while Pratt Museum features the history with an array of excellent exhibits.

The Homer Spit offers beach activities, bicycling or walking or jogging on 5 miles of paved bike trail with spectacular ocean and mountain views. Several volcanoes are visible and make a backdrop for fabulous Pacific sunsets. Bishop Beach is also located in Homer providing miles of beach for the avid beachcomber to wander along the bluffs of Kachemak Bay or enjoy a fire on the beach.

There are 3 Old Believer Russian Orthodox villages to visit within 8 miles of our property. Within 2 miles alpine meadows overflowing with wildflowers in season and stunning views of Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet abound at the Eveline State Recreation Park. This is one of our personal favorite places!
