Best place to stay in Homer, AK?

Jump to last reply

What's the best place to stay in Homer, Alaska?
I've heard that the Sea Lion Cove is a nice place. Anyone heard or it, or stayed there?
Also, what did you like best about Homer?
We'll be there 2 days.

    <What's the best place to stay in Homer?>
    Because this is not your first post you know how things work on this forum. You need to do a text search. Right here on fodors.com you can find hundreds of posts recommending accommodations in Homer. You need to decide what is the best place to stay in for you. Meanwhile read the post "Homer B&B." I heard some negative and some positive comments about the place you are thinking about staying in.

    <what did you like best about Homer?>
    Again, please do your search here. We spend at least one week each time. We like scenery, activities across the bay, museum, nature center, beach, bird watching, Homestead trail, moose, bald eagles, trips to Katmai National Park and Preserve, visiting with our friends, buying fresh fish on the spit and cooking it as soon as we get to our place, watching moose with a baby from the kitchen window, relaxing, reading, writing, not having to answer e-mails and phone calls, and many more things.

    <We'll be there 2 days>. Do you mean 2 days/1 night? If you can't stay at least two nights, save Homer for your next visit and plan on staying there longer so you can find out why so many visitors go there and what you like the best about this small town.
    Have a nice trip

    Each of the towns we visited in Alaska seem to have a unique personality. I liked the Pratt Museum a lot because of the short video about homesteading in Homer in the 50s. Since that was when my parents were starting out, I was amazed at the differences in life. Horses were still important to Homer homesteaders in 1950s. Homer has some interesting craft galleries but is probably much better known for fishing. You can get fresh oysters at the farmers market. As you near the town there's a scenic rest area with a fantastic view of Homer Spit and the surrounding bay. What a great introduction to town. We made two short visits during the same trip. Once as part of a weekend package to Seldovia and another as a day trip from Kenai. Although it would be nice to spend more than two days, if that's all the time you've got, enjoy it. I also enjoyed the other stories behind what Homer is today like the canvas/fleece company that started out in a school bus (really nice store and catalog today) and reading about the Eagle Lady.
