About Bob Rude
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.
Bob Rude purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Bob Rude 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.
What makes this Cottage unique
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.

Outstanding! The cabin has great views of Homer. It was very clean, well equipped and updated with all the creature comforts. Perfectly located close to town and the spit. We would definitely stay at this cabin again.
We really enjoyed staying at this cabin! It was perfect for my mom, husband and newborn. The cabin was clean, cozy and had all the amenities. We will be back next year!
This property had everything we needed for our short stay in Homer. The check in process was super easy and the owners were very attentive to any need or questions we may have had. The proximity to town and the spit relative to its private location and open view made the stay there perfect for our family. Many thanks to Bob and Kellie for their hospitality!
Very nice stay
My family had a very nice stay. Everything was as advertised and the owner was very helpful in providing items that we needed like an extra bed and iron.
The cabin is located within five minutes of downtown Homer but the area is still peaceful with nice views.
It was nice that the cabin had blackout shades due to the long days in the the summer and overall there was plenty of privacy.
