This 2 acre home is a real treasure. Completely secluded among towering birch trees, it offers a rare combination of privacy and panoramic views. Listen to the babbling creek as you relax on our large deck taking in the beautiful landscaping and birdsongs. The entire rental unit has been completely renovated and refurnished in 2011/12.
Bear Creek Guest House is an easy 2 mile drive from downtown Homer and the base of the spit. Walk along Bear Creek and visit the local winery where you can while away the afternoon sampling their unique collection of hand crafted wines. If its night life you’re looking for, take a five minute stroll to Down East Saloon and settle into an evening of live music and Alaska brewed ales. The Homer bike path is located 50 yards from our guest house so you can walk the 2 miles into town or wander down East End Road.
I live on site in the upper level of the residence and am available to answer any questions or help when needed. The very private and spacious rental unit is separated from the rest of the house and has its own entrance off of the porch. The structure is truly the quintessential Alaska home. Originally a homestead, there are many rustic, hand hewn construction features.
Roughly 1000 square feet are portioned into two queen bedrooms, one full bathroom, a spacious fully equipped kitchen and huge, window-filled family sunroom. Bedrooms are outfitted with excellent linens. You can kick back on the overstuffed sofas in the family room while watching the 42 inch flat screen or gazing out the numerous windows.
Bear Creek supports a plethora of wildlife which frequents the yard. Coyote, moose, bald eagles, ermines, hares, sand hill cranes, numerous songbird species and the occasional black bear may all be your neighbors. We can help advise you how to
see the varied widlife in Kachemak bay such as sea otters, whales and seals, or how to go experience amazing bear viewing in Katmai National Park on a day trip!
