Fantastic family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful inside and out with beautiful views of Kachemak Bay and the Kenai Mountains and Harding Icefield. It is well decorated, well appointed, and every comfort was provided-- they even provided a Christmas Tree to help us celebrate the holiday. The kitchen has everything you need to cook big family meals and the bedrooms and furniture are cozy for everyone to relax. Roxanne was very responsive and flexible, letting us check out the property before the reservation and letting us extend our stay on a flexible basis. I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a luxurious place to stay in Homer.

Loved loved loved this house

  • 5 of 5

This house is even better than the pictures. It is beautifully and uniquely decorated, it is spacious, comfortable, well equipped and it is SPOTLESSLY clean. The view is as wonderful as everyone else says. We did a flightseeing tour with Steller Air which was wonderful. Lots of good food in town. We especially liked Cafe Cups for dinner.

Amazing stay at a gorgeous cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had an amazing stay at Ptarmigan House. It is an amazing house up on the hill with an amazing view of the Spit and Kachemak Bay. My wife and 3 daughters were amazed actually at the decorating touches all around the house . The house is in a developing community and we discovered several resident moose in the areas including a male and a female with two babies. The house is incredible and Tim and Roxanne were immediately available to answer a simple question.

Beautiful house, beautiful view , unforgettable adventures

  • 5 of 5

Just left Homer after four nights at Ptarmigan House with my family five , including 3 teenagers, and with my 79 year old mom. First of all, the house offers the most amazing view of the bay and the spit and the mountains and the glaciers , a view you can take in from nearly every room. I saw the photos before booking the house, but the actual panaroma is even better than advertised. We will never forget that view.

The house itself is lovely and roomy and open. We appreciated all the personal touches. It was a wonderful place to wake up in before our day of adventures, and to come back to for relaxation and rest before starting anew .

We recommend highly Enerald Air for bear viewing in Katmai, and Two Sisters for coffee and pastries and quiche and sandwiches .

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property was awesome with beautiful views and exactly as advertised. The weather was a little bad for part of our stay, so we actually ended up spending a lot of time in the house and it was really fantastic! The owners were very responsive by text message so if anything had gone wrong (which it did not), I have every confidence they would have fixed the problem without delay. Highly recommend!

Beautiful home with an amazing view.

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a weekend getaway to Homer with two families and stay at this property. It had a lot of room for 4 adults and 3 kids, was very clean and comfortable and had one of the most amazing views I have ever seen on a rental property. We highly recommend you consider this for your next Alaskan adventure.
