Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I inherited this property and built Laughing Raven in 2000 from logs harvested from the Kenai Peninsula. I'm a neurology nurse practitioner and work in Anchorage but plan on retiring to Homer. In the meantime I'd like to share my home with individuals who wish to have an unforgettable Alaskan adventure.

Why the Owner Chose Homer:
I built Laughing Raven on property that was an original Alaskan homestead. I spent my summers as a child playing on the Homer Spit. Laughing Raven is conveniently located 3 miles from the center of Homer on 20 private forested acres with spectacular views and very comfortable accommodations.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can sit by the fire place and plan many out-doors activities Homer has to offer. You can also just relax on the decks or in the hot tub and just enjoy the scenic views and observe the wild life.
