Homer house description

“The Raven” Guesthouse is named for the birds that play in the updrafts along the bluff where she sits. Tucked back into an alder grove on a 7 acre lot it's unobstructed view watches the puff of a whales blow hole, rafts of sea otters and fishing boats catching Kings Salmon and Halibut down below in Kachemak Bay and the Lower Cook Inlet. Her view extends from the shores near Seldovia to Mt. Redoubt including the expanse of Mountains and Volcanoes that make up the Alaskan Ring of Fire.

It occasionally catches a glimpse of a lynx, black bear, coyote or a moose and on a daily basis enjoys the company of playful ravens, soaring eagles, hawks, and strutting cranes and pheasants.

It’s a newly-built 2400 square foot 3-bedroom/3½ bath house that can easily accommodate 6 or more people. It's open floor plan is a comfortable place for friends and family to gather and enjoy each others company.

'The Raven' is complete in every way with a washer & dryer and a full kitchen loaded with all the appliances, pots, pans, utensils and staple foods. Each bedroom has an incredible view, its own bathroom and can sleep either 2 singles or 1 couple.

It is adorned with larch wood flooring and trim, butcher-block counter tops, and beautifully painted and decorated rooms. Southwest facing the 'Raven' basks in the sun. With a wrap-around deck you can use the Weber grill to cook up some freshly caught fish or just sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The sunsets dropping behind the Alaska Range are spectacular if you're patient enough to stay up and wait for them.

It's private location, amazing view, and comfortable interior make the 'Raven' Guesthouse a ideal home for your vacation. Call Chris or Daniel and we'll be happy to help you make your vacation a memorable experience.

                This is a great rental property. Plenty of room and fantastic views. We only used one bed and it was very comfortable. The house is well stocked with shampoo, soap, coffee, sugar, etc. We saw whales, rafts of sea otters, and eagles from the house. The sunsets are beautiful even on cloudy days. We hope we can return to "The Raven" someday. Thanks for having this home on a rental program so others can enjoy the beauty.

                We spent a week at the Raven this summer for a family vacation and thought that it was amazing. This was our favorite part of our Alaska trip which included a cruise of the inside passage and a visit to Denali. We have been fortunate to stay at some extremely nice places on our travels, and the combination of grand views and comfortable accomodations put the Raven near the top of the our list. - Accomodations were spacious, well-cared for, and like-new - Views of the bay and the far mountain ranges were incredible. Property provided clear views from the rooms, deck, and yard. Property was secluded as well. - Kitchen had modern appliances and well-stocked with all of the basic staples - coffee, spices, condiments, etc.. - Linens and furnishings were nice quality and in good shape - Daniel, the owner and his wife, were extremely gracious, responsive and helpful. We also went on a fishing charter with Daniel which was a lot of fun for the entire family (eventhough we had not done any fishing before). - The property is a short drive from Homer spit which was one of the most beautiful towns in Alaska. The people there were extremely friendly, the shops were fun, and there was plenty of adventure (hikes to glaciers, boating, fishing, wildlife spotting, museums, etc...).

                Five women from Indiana ventured into the Alaskan wilderness, leaving our husbands to hold the forts down back home. While they eat their Campbell's Soup the Fab Five journeyed the waters catching Halibut galore! Feasting like queens! Your cabin was our castle and you were both so helpful and generous. Daniel guided us to the Halibut (and shark!)while Chris was kind enough to help us find our way around. The Raven- Amazing!! We truly felt at home. The views breathtaking!! A vacation of a lifetime! We will see you again soon!! (and maybe let the boys come) Ha! Thank you and god bless

                This house is an absolute dream- very senic and peaceful. It felt like home. The pit was exquisite for late night campfires and s'mores! The sunset by Mt. Redoubt was spectacular. The town of homer is very quaint, rustic and has lots of charm. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

                Thank you for the fabulous memories of great accomodations and spectacular fishing. We all loved being on the boat with Daniel. Everything was perfect as can be. Chris, thank you for all your work in this beautiful home-"The Raven". We only had one problem- what to do with 300lbs of fish. Yes, Daniel is that good a guide. Thank you,

                This was the perfect home for our family to spend time in Homer together. We loved the view! Also loved the fact that each couple had such a spacious bedroom and private bathrooms. We took you business card and may have the opportunity to come back. Thanks for your great accommodations. Blessings!

Fishing good- both the salt water & river- for the soul. Thanks Daniel and Christie for allowing us the opportunity to enjoy "neck of the woods".

                A class act vacation all due to our stay at the Raven. Thank you very much for the wonderful stay. We slept like a baby and when we were awake we were so relaxed looking at the view of a life time. I believe we will be back not to mention we will tell all our friends about you as well!

It sits above Kachemak Bay and you can see the expanse of the Bay and Cook Inlet to the incredible Alaska Mountain Range on the other side. It's quite a property.
