About Terri Lemons

Our family moved to Alaska in 2008 and have truly enjoyed living here. We first visited Homer in 2004 while visiting Alaska and we immediately fell in love with the town. After our visit in 2004, we knew we would be back. Our next visit to Homer was when we got married here in 2008. We've always wanted to own a home here and we finally made it happen in 2016! We are both biologists, so spending time in Homer where we are surrounded by so much wildlife and nature has been truly amazing! When we're not in Homer, we spend most of our summer on the water fishing and shrimping in Prince William Sound.

We have two young boys, Elias (7) and Paden (4) that are very active and love to be outside exploring. The beach is one of their favorite places to go, so many treasures to discover. We love spending time in Homer and hope your family will too!

Property was perfect for our party with the cabin being very nice.

Changing the WiFi password before checkout left a bad impression to a good trip. Their way of making sure we were out by 11:00? Left at 10:15. Tacky.

Fantastic cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin felt like ‘home’ from the moment we walked in the front door. The scenic views of Kachemak Bay, the coziness of the cabin, nice location for morning/evening walks made this one of our family’s all-time favorites. The scenery in Homer is stunning. We hope to come again!

Pristine home; stunning views

  • 5 of 5

This house was a real highlight of our stay in Alaska. We sat and watched the view off the deck for hours—just amazing. The house was spotless and well cared for, and Terri was so kind and responsive to my questions. Location was perfect for us—close enough for a quick drive into downtown, but far enough up the mountain to be quiet and secluded with amazing views. Absolutely perfect for our multi-generation family trip. Highly recommend!
