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 Homer

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.

Perfect little house for a perfect little family getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Little Fireweed Cottage! It was perfect for our family of 4 :) I give a star rating of 4 only because of the landscaping which is very over grown and doesn't leave much, if any, yard to play in. Everything else was beyond wonderful! We will defiantly be booking another getaway at the Little Fireweed Cottage in the future :)

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two incredible weeks at the Little Fireweed Cottage. We've rented vacation homes all over the world and this property ranks up with the best. Should we return to Homer (and I hope we will) we will not hesitate to rent this house again. The owners were a pleasure to work with. The house is all it's advertised and more. The photos and description really don't do it justice. Everything we needed was provided. The view from the house and deck are absolutely spectacular. The house is perfectly appointed with cookware, towels, and everything we needed for our two week stay. Some homes we've rented in the past have become the owner's dumping ground. They take their old furniture, small appliances, and whatever to stock the house. Not the case here. Everything was new, clean, and uncluttered. There were a few spices and other non-perishables left from previous renters but nothing that we weren't comfortable using ourselves. The housekeeper is doing a great job in minimizing the clutter. It was about as close to perfect as can be. We really appreciated the quiet and privacy. Nearby neighbors were never heard from or seen. I cannot give this property a high enough rating, it is the best!

Absolutely amazing views coupled with quiet privacy. We greatly enjoyed the hot tub, full kitchen and quiet solitude. Definitely recommended for a stay in Homer.
