From Pioneer Avenue, turn north onto Bartlett Street. We are 1/2 block up on the left hand side. You can’t miss us!
Imagine a little town nestled on the shore of a glistening bay; glaciers and mountains rimming the shoreline and active volcanoes looming in the distance…
This is our town!
This is Homer, Alaska, on stunning Kachemak Bay. Made famous as “The End of the Road” in Tom Bodett’s tales, Homer is at the end of the Sterling Highway, 250 miles south of Anchorage, surrounded by wilderness and ocean. A home base for great fishing (“The Halibut Fishing Capital of the World”), kayaking, bear viewing, hiking, food, and art; Homer is quickly becoming known also as the Eco and Adventure tourism capital of Alaska.

Home port to the F/V Time Bandit of the Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch” fame, Homer’s museums, art galleries, fine dining and seaside accommodations, all help create Alaska-sized memories to last a lifetime.
The Homer Spit (“spit” is a geological landform) features the longest road into ocean waters in the world and was recently named one of the best 100 beaches in the United States for its incredible views and variety of wildlife along the wonderful 4.5 mile multi-use trail that runs from its base to its tip – the true end of the road on Alaska’s Highway.
And just across the Bay, less than 10 miles from the Spit, is the state’s only designated wilderness park – Kachemak Bay State Wilderness Park. Local water taxis specialize in bringing outdoor lovers to the trailheads and campgrounds of the park. This unique combination of location, commerce, beauty, natural resources and wilderness makes Homer a wonderful place to visit, and a great place to live!
