My visit to Homer was greatly enhanced by my stay at Crane's Rest. It felt like a home away from home. I only wish I could have stayed longer. Not only are the hosts very warm and friendly, the place was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was different everyday and hearty. And the jaw-dropping views! Not only do you... More

We recently spent several nights in Homer at the Cranes Rest Bed &Breakfast. While driving from the main highway to the B&B, we started to become a little concerned about how far off the "Spit" we'd be. Upon arrival at Cranes Rest however, any concerns we had quickly dissipated. Keith and Melissa welcomed us with open arms and there were... More

Hosts Melissa and Keith were exceptional. We spent our time in Homer fishing so they prepared our delicious breakfast to go. It is some distance from the hubbub of the Homer Spit and we enjoyed some solitude here.

Exceptional hospitality, great views, comfortable room, nothing was too much trouble, very helpful information on local activities, beautiful home cooked breakfast by Keith, different each morning. We went on an awesome bear viewing tour with Ultimate Alaskan Safaris were the helicopter picked us up from the B&B and then delivered us home at the end. Everything was 100%.
