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.

          Why the Owner Chose Homer:
          We built this house on an amazing cliff side lot that shows any occupant the outright raw beauty that Alaska has to offer. 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.
