Sparkling clean, outstanding hospitality, amazing amenities, stylish space
Jennifer’s place is really nice. Our young kids enjoyed the large field to run around it and it’s on a quiet area where we didn’t have to worry about the road and the kids playing. 2 nice bedrooms and living space. Kitchen has all the pots and pans.
If you are going to Homer this is the place to stay!
This is a top notch property and as title says this is the place to stay if you are in Homer, for many reasons. The accommodations were spotless, nice bath towels, great hot water with good pressure and spacious to just name a few. The location is central and close to the spit, shopping and other sights. Great neighborhood that is quiet. The beds were amazingly comfortable and there was good black out blinds-needed in Alaska summers! The property is well cared for and this includes a great lawn. There is also a deck that is set up with chairs that has an amazing view and we experienced no mosquitoes spending time out there. The interactions with the owners was great kind, nice, knowledgeable and of course professional. Easy check in and check out and overall smooth transaction. Don’t just think about renting this property I would recommend planning your trip around Bear Canyon Cottages availability.
We rent frequently on Vrbo so are well versed in dealing with property owners, how true to life the pictures are, etc… It all adds up in quality of life, especially when you rent frequently and for months at a time. Jen was absolutely great to deal with, communicated honestly, quickly and efficiently! She was able to work out any kinks in our quickly changing work situation, the property has an amazing view and beautiful grounds, all details were attended to ~ truly stress free! We’re going to be booking them for fishing charters next year when we get some time off! Thanks Jen for making our lives easier and being authentic in your advertising!!
We enjoyed our stay in Homer. It was everything we needed. Thanks for a great visit.
**Fabulous cabins and property**
This is our first pick of cabins when we know we are traveling to Homer. They are ALWAYS beautiful and clean and the property is immaculate, with an enormous lawn to set up your summer games; croquet, Cornhole, volleyball, etc. it’s just a “pretty” property, and you will not be disappointed with the quality and quaintness of these cabins, from the appliances to the to the themed furniture.
A Wonderful Weekend Getaway
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Garden Cabin. It was a perfect place for a weekend getaway from Anchorage. The place was spotless and cozy. Jared and Jen made us feel right at home. Highly recommend!
Jeret and Jen are excellent host! We had a great time staying and fishing with them!
It was very nice the meet all of you, Jeret, Jen, Makala and Hanna! Thanks again, Ken and Deb
Very cozy, clean, relaxing and it’s a little closer to town. We would definitely 100% stay again. Host were super nice and friendly.
My stay at Jen and Jaret’s cabin could not have been better! Not only was it lovely and fully equipped, but it truly felt like my home away from home…cozy and plenty of privacy. The check-in/out process was also refreshingly easy. I had a question about something at one point and Jen and Jaret were super responsive. The cabin is in a beautiful, convenient location, too. Thanks again for a truly wonderful stay!!
Very nice home away from home
This cabin was nicely set-up. Very roomy and comfortable. Kitchen is a great size for the cabin. It had all you need for your stay. Kellie was great to work with. It had a great green space in front of the cabin with a good view. Nice quiet area not to close to downtown. I would keep it on my list of great places to stay again.
This is a group of cabins surrounding a large green space with a nice deck. Perfect for our family of 4. Kelli was great to work with and the cabin was clean and well equipped. I highly recommend this property.
Feeling like at home
It was the best place we have stayed so far via either airbnb or homeway; clean and comfortable with nice decorations. We could find everything we need. Washer and dyer were very helpful when your trip was more than 7 days. Bob provided his personal views in details of the places of interest and vendors for different activities when I booked the place, which was very helpful. Particularly, when I reached out to Bob for help beyond his responsibility, he and Kelly were willing to go extra miles to help. Kelly was very quick in response. We met her before we left, she was nice and warm. I feel that we could become friends with her and Bob.
The property was beautiful and well maintained
Our overall experience was fantastic. The owners were very attentive to our specific needs. My father was going through chemo and the owners showed such concern and care and I could tell would go out of their way to make our stay magical. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the owners and property. I could tell the owners are upstanding citizens in the community as well. They knew the area and everyone they recommended was A+. I highly recommended this property.
Very Clean; Fast, Stress-Free Check-in
Great customer service and the property + place was beautiful and very clean. My only critique / wish is to ask for a fold out couch in the living room. The current furniture is comfy and well appointed but not the most practical with a party of three adults… a small issue but it would help. Otherwise, we had a lovely time.
Fantastic cottage with beautiful views!
We enjoyed every minute here. The cottage is beautiful, located in a perfect place and well-cared for. In the morning, a couple moose went by one day and the views of the mountains created a perfect backdrop. We would stay here again for sure!
Unbelievable outdoor space, quiet, privacy and views. Wonderful, responsive hosts. Most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in – no lie – I am going to ask what kind it was so I can buy one. Close enough to town to make things easy, but far enough away to feel truly like a retreat. Everything was spotless. It was hard to leave. Thank you Bob and Kellie!
Loved the cottages
Loved the cottages and the location. Had our wires crossed regarding the date of arrival and the owners bent over backwards to accommodate us. Also owners are very friendly and will help in anyway. The cottages were clean. Would highly recommend these cute cottages. I will definitely stay here next time we visit Homer again.
Clean, gorgeous view, plenty of room.
I’d recommend these cabins to anyone. Everything you need is there. A little ways out from downtown, with great privacy and views of the mountains. Will definitely stay there again. Second stay for us, will stay again.
Very peaceful, clean home! My son loves it so much. Enjoyable stay. Self check in and check out, very convenient!
My husband, 2 children and I called bear canyon cottages home for about a week and half before making a cross country move from Homer. Absolutely loved our stay here and it was a breath of fresh air working with Bob and Kellie! Very helpful and caring people! Will be visiting in the future and these guys will be our first call for lodging! Thank you for your hospitality!
Everyone in our family said, “Wow!”, when we walked in. Really cute and immaculately clean. The grassy area in front is pleasant and there is a nice view towards Cook Inlet. Took us maybe 10-15 minutes to drive down to the Spit. Kellie was very friendly and helpful. It is just down the road from the Bear Creek Winery which was a fun stop. Our only regret is that we did not have more time to be able to relax and enjoy all the amenities like the deck and grill. We would definitely stay there again if we are ever lucky enough to come back to Homer.
My Wife and I stated at the cottages for 3 nights while we were in Homer. The cabins are wonderful. It’s a beautiful setting, with a great view. The cabins are really nice. They are really clean, with everything you might need. Homer is a great town, with lots to do. It also has the best weather in Alaska.
Perfect and Comfortable!
My husband and I found these wonderful cabins when we visited Homer in March, 2016 and we chose them again for our visit with our extended family in May! Our group rented all three cabins to accommodate 12 people. The most important thing for me is comfortable beds and theirs were definitely comfortable! All of the cabins were super clean, beautifully decorated, have well-equipped kitchens, soft fluffy towels, and again – Nice, Comfortable Beds. The owners, Kellie and Bob are wonderful to work with – so friendly, caring, and helpful. They gave us a lot of information about things to do in Homer, including offering free use of the health club with beach access! We would definitely stay again! Thank you, Kellie and Bob! We all enjoyed our stay in your wonderful cottages!
Ideal Homer Cabin
The Bear Canyon cottages are simply perfect. The cabins are situated on a huge, gorgeously maintained grassy field, with expansive views of the Kachemak bay. Our cottage was impressively clean down to the tiniest detail upon our arrival, and are beautifully crafted, well decorated and well stocked. Kellie was so pleasant to work with and helpful with tons of recommendations. This place has everything – views, convenience to town, comfy beds, open areas for kids to run around, and great owners. Basically it’s a no-brainier. This is our new Homer spot, hands down!

Best vacation rental in Homer!!!
I contacted Kellie at the last minute. I had a few questions about Homer and things to do while in town. We talked for 30 minutes about EVERYTHING she is AWESOME!! When I go back to Homer this is now the only place I will stay.
Amazing place to relax and enjoy Homer
What a wonderful little cottage overlooking the water and mountains in Homer! It was so clean, inviting, super comfortable and a fully stocked kitchen. We meet the owners Bob and Kellie, both very helpful, friendly and accommodating! Enjoyed our stay immensely!!
