Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4 (5 with inflatable cot)

Give us a call--we love chatting about Homer, our cottage, about life, or whatever!

And welcome to Little Fireweed Cottage in Homer, Alaska! We strive to ensure that your experience at our cottage is one that stays with you forever. Whether you are in Homer just to relax and soak in the breathtaking views or here to dive into the multitude of outdoor activities this unique area of the world offers, we are confident that your stay at Little Fireweed Cottage will be one of the highlights of your trip.

Before we discovered the jewel that is Homer, we traveled around the world and stayed in many vacation homes along the way. We have taken many of those things, which we enjoyed the most when staying in those homes and have tried to incorporate them into our vacation rental.

Just recently built in 2006 on one and a half private acres, Little Fireweed Cottage was made to serve as a retreat and a home-away-from-home for those traveling for the 'Homer experience'. After a long day of fishing for halibut, sightseeing, or hiking, come home to cook up your seafood just the way you like it on the barbecue grill.

Pour yourself a glass of wine from one of our bottles on site and ponder whether it is time to melt away in the very brand new hot tub with its grand views or whether that should wait until after the movie you are going to watch on the flat-screen TV/home theater. If you're a night owl, there's always the fire pit up on the hill, with the swinging chair that turns into a bed.

We know that everyone has their own ways of doing 'vacation'. With that said, we believe that in whatever way you seek to find ultimate relaxation, Little Fireweed Cottage will serve you wonderfully in that endeavor.

About Ailsa or Tyson Hall

My wife is from New Brunswick, Canada and I am from Palmer, Alaska. Growing up six hours away, in the Matanuska Valley, I always loved the opportunity to get down to Homer to visit my family there. Since a very young age, Homer has held a very special place in my heart. I have traveled to over 40 different countries around the world but I have yet to see a place that matches the majesty of Homer, Alaska.

Be sure to take a trip across the bay if you come all this way. It's really a wonderful experience.

Ailsa or Tyson Hall purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Ailsa or Tyson Hall chose Kenai Peninsula

Ever since I was 13, it has been a dream of mine to own a piece of Homer. That dream came true in 2006! We were able to grab a great in-town lot with a wonderful view of Kachemak Bay! We built the cottage the same year we bought the land. We feel truly blessed!

What makes this cottage unique

The reason we got into Vacation Rentals is because we have stayed in many ourselves and like the idea of staying in a private home instead of a noisy, crowded hotel. As a result of those visits at various rentals across the nation, we came up with four very important qualities that we look for when booking a Vacation Rental and incorporated them into ours. They are, 1) The lodging must feel private, 2) It must be close to the town you are visiting, 3) It must have a HOTTUB!!, 4) If applicable, it must have a view. We are happy to report that we have checked all four of these boxes!! We are only two miles from lovely Homer, on almost one and a half private acres, with a great view that you can soak in while in the wonderful hot-tub!

We are proud of our cozy little cottage in Homer and are so confident that it will exceed your expectations and serve to be the retreat you need after coming all this way.

Beautiful home at an amazing location.

  • 5 of 5

This place exceeded my expectations in every way possible. The hot tub was clean and perfect. The rooms and beds were super comfortable. Thank you so much for letting us use your home for the weekend!

Nice place but wasn't clean

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed the hot tub and the views were amazing. You could see the airport and we would watch the planes from the hot tub. The swing outside with fire pit was nice but we did not use it because the weeds just about overtook it. It does have a nice gravel path leading to it. Overall we really enjoyed the rental. Very spacious. The only problem ( which is a big one for me) was the cleanliness of it. I actually had to clean the toliet myself. There was dried pee stains on it and small hairs. I would not use it until I cleaned it myself. There were spider webs in many places. Had it not been for the condition of the bathroom I would have rated it a 5 star but because I really care about how clean a rental is I just gave it 3 stars. The unit does have a washer and dryer unit which came in real handy because we had been on a bear viewing trip and were soaked and were able to dry our clothes before leaving the next day.

At home in Homer

  • 5 of 5

Little Fireweed Cottage was clean, well stocked, and very comfortable. Our family of four felt right at home and thoroughly enjoyed the views and soaking in the hot tub after our days spent kayaking and fishing. Charming!

Incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

What a great little cottage and so well equipped we couldn't have asked for more. Hot tubbing while looking out over the Spit or sitting in the glider by the fire pit we expected Moose to appear anytime. Beds and linens were extremely comfortable and the kitchen had everything we could have wanted. We can only hope to return again to charming Homer and would stay once again in the tranquility of Little Fireweed Cottage.
