Car: Not Necessary

Because of the Homer Roundhouse in-town location, guests can enjoy almost everything Homer has to offer without a car. A favorite activity is to walk down the beach 1/3 mile to Two Sisters Bakery for morning coffee and treat. You can also walk to the numerous art galleries, Pratt Museum, Islands and Ocean Visitor Center plus numerous cafes and restaurants. For fishing and 'across-the-bay' experiences, the 10 minute drive to the Homer Spit is convenient and beautiful.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: John aka Johnny B. composes music and performs throughout the Northwest. His solo multi-media piano performance can be seen once a week during the summer months at Pier One Theater's Homer Spit Theater. Johnny B. constructed the Homer Roundhouse on the property next to his and Sharon's house in 2010. Sharon Bushell has written numerous biographies for families of pioneer Alaskans. Her two published books are titled We Alaskans and We Alaskans Volume II. She also co-wrote a book about the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill.

Why the Owner Chose Homer, AK, USA:
Sharon and I decided to construct a small guest house in 2010. We have always been attracted to yurts and living in a round house. We purchased the kit and decided to make it the most comfortable and unique yurt possible. Unlike most yurts, our Homer Roundhouse has an enclosed spacious bathroom with loft overhead. The counter tile work and stone work behind the wood stove is one-of-a-kind.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are so many things without exaggeration to love about the Homer Roundhouse. The quiet, the convenient location, the view, the comfort, and you can look up and see the stars at night from your bed. (depending on the time of year:))
