Beautiful views of Kachemak Bay and the mountains nearby. This quaint, little cottage has everything you need and is walking distance to most of Homer. Moose are often seen browsing in the yard or nearby. The bright bedroom has a queen sized bed, and upstairs is a large flat screened TV and chairs for relaxing. There is a queen sized murphy bed upstairs for additional sleeping. Full kitchen also has great views of the ocean and mountains.

About Sue Post & Jim Levine

Life long Alaskan- family has lived in Homer and owned independent bookstore here since 1978. I play in an African Marimba Band (Shamwari) and also play French Horn in the Kenai Peninsula Orchestra. My husband and I own 2 dogs and love x-c skiing and hiking with them whenever possible. We have kayaked and explored our local bay and beaches nearby. I can be found most days 2 blocks away at the Homer Bookstore.

Sue Post & Jim Levine purchased this house in 2010

Why Sue Post & Jim Levine chose Kenai Peninsula

We wanted a home my dad and stepmom could come visit and be close to us, plus our home is at a higher elevation and there are days in the winter we wanted to be able to stay closer to town in case of bad winter storms.

What makes this house unique

We love the brightness of this home and the fact that it is so close to most of the shopping and restaurants and movie theatre in town.

Great place to stay in Homer

  • 5 of 5

We took a Labor Day weekend trip here (two adults and two children) and we loved the Lee Street Cottage. The place was very clean, and it had a great Alaska feel to it. Our kids loved the front door, calling it the castle door. The cottage is close to everything: downtown Homer, the spit, restaurants... you name it. The views from the second floor balcony of the spit and the mountains were terrific.

On one night of our stay, a major downpour moved through the area, but we didn't mind as we hunkered down in the cottage to play the games that were provided and watch some TV. It was great to have a full kitchen to cook a meal or two as well.

The Lee Street Cottage is a great place to stay in Homer.

Absolutely incredible stay

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for more from this perfect cottage. It is far more spacious than we imagined. We had a wonderful, thrilling afternoon watching a Momma Moose and her two babies in the yard - for FIVE hours. It was incredible. From upstairs, there is a beautiful view, that is best enjoyed wth a nice glass of your favorite beverage! Sue and Jim have thought of anything and everything you might need. They are incredibly easy to work with, nad made our first Home Away the standard we will not expect! Perfect location, perfect space, perfect hosts! We hope to return to Homer and will surely stay in this cottage.

Just like home - with a better view!

  • 5 of 5

The Lee Street Cottage was an amazing find - cozy, comfortable, wonderful cheery decor, all the amenities one could hope for - and that amazing view! Close to town, but in a nice quiet location, and very affordable. Lots of helpful information provided, too. We were only there for 2 nights - wish we could have stayed longer!

Sweet spot to land in Homer

  • 5 of 5

This is a great two bedroom cottage with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The view from the upstairs deck is amazing on a clear day. Very good value.

Cozy Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in Homer and our stay at the Lee Street Cottage was perfect for our needs. The home was very comfortable, clean and well stocked. Our two young children loved it! (They keep asking when we are going to go back). Great location, easy access to all of Homer, great views, cozy and everything we needed.
