Reviewed 16 March 2013 via mobile

Wonderful hosts; great breakfasts. A good place to return after a day of fun. I do not know what else to write but there is a minimum of 200 characters so: "The granola was great. The cinnamon rolls, too. The coffee was hot and the sky was blue." Still not enough characters$???;((((@@@@:))). Yikes! I don't want to count characters. Well, Arden was, actually, is a character as was the man down at the beach with the fancy outhouse for ladies and the bartender at the Salty Dawg Saloon and Ringo the troll who lives in an old boat down on the Spit. To report anything else would reveal too much and you'll just have to come on down to the end of the road to check it out. I hope this is 200 characters.

First experience was a moose just outside our suite. The room was filled with Pat's wonderful quilts. It was quiet, well-located, exceptionally clean and comfortable. Breakfast was terrific - I'm still trying to get her to ship those rolls to Texas! And, sometimes the conversation turned to Santa Claus! Great experience!

Room Tip: Just let the innkeeper choose for you!

We spent three days in Homer, AK this July/August 2012 fishing and bear watching. It was so much fun. We stayed with Pat and Arden owners of Spyglass Inn B&B and they just added to a delightful visit. Pat was so kind to make us breakfast to go because of our very early morning tours and when we were able to sit down with them and other guest to a full sit down breakfast it was delicous. We were very pleased with our room which had a private bath. We were able to park our car right outside our room which made it very convient for lugging in our luggage. We had a very comfy bed and the room was very clean and stocked with everything we needed. We highly recommend you stay here, far better that your standard hotel/motel.

The breakfasts and hospitality make up for any quirks in the layout of the inn (the downstairs rooms are cozy, but you will be taking your luggage down a gravel path about 50 yards). The rooms feature gorgeous handmade quilts, and Arden & Pat are interesting and gracious hosts. Breakfast is served family style & consisted of eggs, bacon, waffles, homemade rhubarb raspberry syrup, granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, juice, coffee or tea. Her homemade granola is to die for as are our cinnamon rolls. We'd love to return.

Room Tip: Stay in the Captain's Quarters if accessibility or mobility are an issue.

Debated about traveling down to Homer and then having to back track back up to Girdwood. Loved Homer, and our B&B. Pat was a great host, with a yummy breakfast. Our room was neat and clean, comfy bed. Pat advised a restaurant for dinner, and it was a great suggestion. Definitely a good choice.

I stayed at the Spyglass in this August and recommend it highly. Pat, the owner, is among the most gracious hosts you could meet. She is warm, outgoing, and knows everything that is going on in Homer. She is a phenomenal cook. Pat is a card-carry member of Slow Food, meaning she cooks with local, natural foods. Her breakfasts are delicious! While we were there she made (its never store bought with Pat) sticky buns, fruit cobbler, granola, and cheese souffles. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and each decorated with Pat's lovely homemade quilts.

My 15 year old daughter and I stayed in the Fireweed Room for three nights on a mom and daughter's mini-getaway. The B and B was spic and span, well appointed, and our own room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the fireweed quilt very lovely.

The food was absolutely delicious, wth lovely, comfortable service. It was so nice to be waited on in such a relaxing atmosphere. My daughter and I both loved conversations with Pat and Arden. Arden has many interesting Santa Claus stories which he tells with his deep, radio announcer's voice. Pat is humorous and has a quick, problem-solving mind.

My daughter wants to know when we can go back! And when will I cook up the recipes Pat gave me to take home?
