At this year-round B&B just out­side the heart of Homer, the notion of being a guest takes on a new mean­ing. In her sun­ny two-sto­ry home, innkeep­er Paula caters to just one par­ty at a time — whether you are trav­el­ing on your own, or have up to six in your group. That means the B&B caters entire­ly to your needs dur­ing your stay — and you have easy access to quaint Homer, just out­side the doorstep.

Guests who come to this sun­ny, com­fort­able inn just out­side the main hub of Homer might be for­giv­en for doing a spin on the front-yard mead­ow and break­ing into The Sound of Music.” After all, own­er Mar­cel­la Suy­dam says that guests often tell her that this spot reminds them of the Alps — and no doubt, the hills here feel pret­ty alive.

At Brigit­te’s Bavar­i­an B&B you’ll find cab­ins and fur­ni­ture, hand-built by the Euro­pean own­ers. You’ll also be treat­ed to home-raised food and award-win­ning gar­dens. Views of Kachemak Bay are read­i­ly avail­able from the prop­er­ty so you’ll have plen­ty to see while you relax in this lit­tle piece of paradise. 

Locat­ed with­in walk­ing dis­tance of town over­look­ing Bish­op’s Beach.

The Two Sis­ters Bak­ery is an insti­tu­tion in Homer. 

There’s a good rea­son why every room in this four-room inn out­side Homer is named after a bird — such as pheas­ants, ptarmi­gans and puffins. Feath­ered friends tend to pop up in the gor­geous views from the inn’s win­dows — and birds know a great place to kick back when they see one.

Alas­ka may not be known for its wines, but it is famous for its great berries — full fla­vors that make for won­der­ful wines. At this small win­ery and B&B in Homer, you can taste and pur­chase a com­pelling mix of award-win­ning fruit wines and fruit grape wine blends.
