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.

Wedding in Homer

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Lee St. Cottage while in Homer to attend a friends wedding at the Driftwood Inn. It was my boyfriend and I and two friends. The cottage was perfect for our needs and was so close to the venue.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you found our place perfect for your stay! Hopefully the mama and baby moose helped with that. We love that the location is so close to town, and glad you did too!

comfortable and close

  • 3 of 5

This little place was comfortable for four of us to stay overnight. The fully equipped kitchen was great for cooking our catch after a long day fishing. The beds are comfortable as well. The only thing lacking in this little place is a living room. The kitchen table is really the only sunny place four people can be together. We spent the evening there rather than the "living room" which has just two comfortable chairs and virtually no windows.

Owner's Response: Glad you were able to catch your dinner and enjoy it! Most times we tend to sit upstairs to visit with each other- although we only have 3 chairs up there, folks have opted to bring other chairs up or sit on the bed. In the summer, the leaves on the trees grow so thick that the upstairs is often where folks like to gather to enjoy the view.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for my parents and I. There was ample space for all of us and the location and price is great. Jim was in communication with us when there was a little hiccup, and he offered great customer service. I definitely recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad the cottage worked well for you, and we appreciated your patience with the hiccup! Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Very nice cottage in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Not much on the outside but very nice on the inside with a great view of the beautiful scenery from the loft. Great location. Very quiet but near town and near the spit. Hosts were very helpful answering all questions. Would definitely stay there again if I'm back in Homer.

Owner's Response: Glad you found the cottage nice and quiet. We have plans to improve on the yard, but it's hard to find the time in the summer when we can do that! We hope our guests are able to enjoy other gardens around Homer instead!

Very nice home

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything we expected and so much more! It was well furnished and stocked. Very close to everything. We enjoyed halibut fishing and a bear tour. Also loved exploring the spit. Last morning of our stay we were surprised to find a mama moose and her two babies in the backyard. We were able to view and photograph them from the safety of the upstairs deck. Thank you for being part of our bucket list vacation.

Quirky cabin with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little place in Homer. Cozy, lots of character, beautiful views of the bay & mountains. Had everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing few days in town, and served as a good base for adventuring over to Kachemak State Park.
