Activities/Attractions: 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.

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.

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.

"We stayed at the Crane's Rest for 3 nights while in Homer. Four adults occupied two rooms. We all loved our stay. Kind welcoming people, they made my husband a breakfast "to go" when he had to catch an early fishing charter. Clean, comfortable, and welcoming, I will not stay anywhere else when in Homer. I loved this place!"

"Beautiful hillside location overlooking mountains and bay. The rooms are new and very clean. The bedding is superior as are the plush towels provided. The rooms which have private outside entrances face a beautiful landscaped back yard with great views. There is no noise and the air is fresh. The hosts, Julie and Steve, are especially warm and engaging."

"Julie and Steve were warm and down-to-earth hosts who were great fun to talk with. They have built a high quality home in a lovely setting. The guest rooms are new and irreproachable. Breakfast is cooked and ample."

"Definitely recommend it. Julie and Steve were awesome hosts and the room was clean and cozy. The view was awesome and Steve's stories about bear hunting were awesome ... loved the stay."

"The house is big with separate entrances for the rooms from the back, so the room faces the huge backyard and the bay and mountains. It is a new house with a big deck. The area is quiet. It is called Cranes Rest because Cranes come on the property to hang out. Julie and Steve are great hosts and great to talk to. I stayed there for 2 days and enjoyed my time."

"The best part of the stay was the friendliness of the innkeepers. They treated us as family and couldn't have been more accommodating. They loaned us boots and helped us get our fishing licenses. They also assisted us with shipping home our fish. They made early breakfast for us when we had excursions that required us to get an early start. All of this was offered spontaneously, without us having to ask. Very impressive. Their dog, Tess, was also a joy. We hope to get a chance to visit again."
