Wonderful place to stay!! We stayed at Keith and Melissa's home the end of March/April. It was cold and lot of snow on the ground. Keith was kind enough to let us borrow some snow shoes etc.. items i don't have on hand in Southern California!! He was very accommodating to any of our needs. I'm a clean freak, and...

My visit to Homer was greatly enhanced by my stay at Crane's Rest. It felt like a home away from home. I only wish I could have stayed longer. Not only are the hosts very warm and friendly, the place was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was different everyday and hearty. And the jaw-dropping views! Not only do you...

Hosts Melissa and Keith were exceptional. We spent our time in Homer fishing so they prepared our delicious breakfast to go. It is some distance from the hubbub of the Homer Spit and we enjoyed some solitude here.

Had a wonderful stay, Keith and Melissa were great hosts, they provided a different cooked breakfast each day. Their home is very comfortable and has views to die for - it was very easy to relax.

Exceptional hospitality, great views, comfortable room, nothing was too much trouble, very helpful information on local activities, beautiful home cooked breakfast by Keith, different each morning. We went on an awesome bear viewing tour with Ultimate Alaskan Safaris were the helicopter picked us up from the B&B and then delivered us home at the end. Everything was 100%.

We recently spent several nights in Homer at the Cranes Rest Bed &Breakfast. While driving from the main highway to the B&B, we started to become a little concerned about how far off the "Spit" we'd be. Upon arrival at Cranes Rest however, any concerns we had quickly dissipated. Keith and Melissa welcomed us with open arms and there were...

Keith and Melissa are great. The place is spacious are tasteful furnished. Though it is a bit further from the activities, that what we are looking for; a secluded place that you can rest and relax. Breakfast are excellent! Don't miss it!
