Reviewed 19 October 2009

My husband and I stayed here in June for 3 nights while on our Alaska sightseeing vacation. Julie and Steve were wonderful hosts and we fell in love with their dog Tess! The view of glaciers across the bay is amazing and in the main living area some high powered binoculars allowed us an even better view. Julie and Steve were very helpful in guiding us around town. Breakfast was wonderful and more than enough to get an active day started in Homer. The rooms were slightly small but more than adequate for our needs and were very nice. They were nice enough to plug in an extra freezer in their garage so we could store our frozen Halibut during our stay, which helped us avoid additional storage costs. We would love to return to Homer some day and would definitely stay at Crane's Rest again!

The property is a bit out from the Spit [the popular hangout place for everyone at the edge of the city] but it is still just a 10 minute drive to Spit. From the room and the backyard you can look at the Bay and the Mountains. The house is big with separate entrances for the rooms from the back, so the room faces the huge backyard and the bay and mountains. It is a new house with a big deck. The area is quiet. It is called Cranes Rest because Cranes come on the property to hang out.
Julie and Steve are great hosts and great to talk to. I stayed there for 2 days and enjoyed my time.
They have a dog and it is nice and friendly. I am mentioning this in case you are not a dog person.

Julie and Steve were warm and down-to-earth hosts who were great fun to talk with. They have built a high quality home in a lovely setting. The guest rooms are new and irreprochable. Breakfast is cooked and ample. A bit far from town and the Spit, but with a car, that's no problem. And the location offers many opportunities for animal viewing. During our two nights we spotted a black bear crossing the road and a cow moose with two calves. I cannot imagine a guest regretting this address, particularly as the price is more than reasonable.

Beautiful hillside location overlooking mountains and bay. The rooms are new and very clean. The bedding is superior as are the plush towels provided. The rooms which have private outside entrances face a beautiful landscaped back yard with great views. There is no noice and the air is fresh. The hosts, Julie and Steve, are especially warm and engaging. Breakfest is gormet quality with real maple syrup provided. You won't be disappointed.
