                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: Hello, my name is Bob Rude and I am the owner of Bear Canyon Cottages. I live in Homer for the same reason you should visit: Homer has a spectacular, dynamic, connection to Nature. Whether you like fishing, hiking, birding, sea kayaking, nordic skiing, snowmobiling, water tours etc.., or just a beautiful relaxing walk on a sand beach in the setting sun, Homer provides the most beautiful concentration of wildlife, mountain, sky and sea that you will ever experience.

                      Why the Owner Chose Homer:
                      This property is unique for its immaculate and quiet setting so close to town yet so secluded. I developed this old Alaskan homestead property. I built and maintain the cottage to the highest standards. The cabin, as is other one onsite, is a fully functioning home away from home, situated in a restful park like setting: a perfect 'base' camp for all your Alaskan adventures.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The cabin has two queen sized beds, plenty of privacy, a fully functioning kitchen and back deck for with a barbeque. This cabin is one of two onsite. Complementary toiletries, extra towels and linens are available upon request. Alaskan wildlife is abundant in the whole area: moose, eagles ravens, etc.., wander through the area frequently Owner is an 'avid Alaskan' and dedicated to making your Alaskan vacation experience the best one ever. Relax at the end of the day--and experience the land of the Midnight Sun from the comforts of your home away from home.
