About the Property
3 bedroom, 2 bathroom close to town and trails
Bear Creek Getaway is located at the end of a quiet neighborhood drive on its own private acre of land. Enjoy beautifully landscaped gardens and front and back yard all overlooking the famous Homer Spit. Because you are only 2.5 miles from downtown Homer, it is a short drive to shops, restaurants, and hiking trails. Take Kachemak Drive for an even quicker commute to the end of the spit (less than 10 minutes) to meet with charters, whale watching, and tours.
The house amenities include Directv throughout, flat screens in each of the three bedrooms, washer and dryer, gourmet kitchen (with all the fixins), wi-fi, outdoor gas BBQ, and a selection of movies, books, and games for those liquid sunshine Alaska summer days.
Families, friends, pets; everyone is welcome at this centrally located, beautifully crafted home in Homer, the Halibut Capital of the World.

Known as the halibut capital of the world, Homer rests on the bank of Kachemak Bay, a sheltered arm of lower Cook Inlet, and is easily accessible by land, air or sea. Once here, visitors will find snowcapped mountains reaching thousands of feet into the sky with glaciers winding their way to the ocean below. Salmon and trout swim in the crystal waters while eagles and seabirds search for food along the miles of beaches. All of these facets come together in the surrounding area to create a miniature vision of Alaska's grandeur.
From fresh and saltwater fishing to charters and wilderness lodges, visitors will find that Homer has a surprising array of activities to offer. Art festivals, sport fishing adventures, hiking and sightseeing are just a few of the exciting things to do while visiting. Homer also offers a variety of eating and lodging options that can cater to anyone's needs.
For the adventurous type, Homer places many trails, fishing spots and charters at your disposal. Follow a trail up a mountainside for a stunning view of glaciers and wildlife, or take a sea-kayak trip across beautiful Kachemak Bay to find your own special hidden spot. The Alaska experience is yours to enjoy in Homer's backyard. For those seeking a more relaxed experience, browsing around town and looking for an Alaska gift for someone back home can be an adventure in itself. Whatever your pleasure, there is no end to the enjoyment waiting for you.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: I am 32, and a Homer local born and raised. I grew up commercial fishing for my uncle and my grandfather on a commercial long-liner for Halibut and Black Cod until I reached the age of 19 and got my 100 ton captain's license. From there I ran just about every kind of work boat you can imagine from water taxi's in Kachemak Bay (ask me any questions about the bay hot-spots, I know them all!) to landing crafts in Anacortes, WA to SCUBA and snorkel boats in the Florida Keys and Caribbean. I now work on the North Slope as an oilfield (sellout) hand (what can I say I like the schedule!), and I still reside on the Kenai Peninsula. I have a small boat in Homer, and I'm still a die hard fisherman (for sport these days). I have a german shepherd dog who goes everywhere with me and I love the Alaskan outdoors and all they have offer.
Why the Owner Chose Homer, AK, USA:
I bought this property because it had the exact combination of things I was looking for in a home: view, location, privacy, and all the creature comforts of a home. All of the things I hope you enjoy during your stay.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I fell in love with this house because of its gardens, view, outdoor living space, and the beautiful architecture throughout. It has character.
