traveler reviews for this homer house rental

Early June, '14 stay for 2 nights

Review submitted: June 7, 2014   Date of arrival: June 2, 2014

What a marvelous property! It's a beautifully designed and constructed luxurious log home in a great location. We and another couple were celebrating our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed exploring Homer Spit and Ketchimak park from this home, while also seeing Mama Moose and her twins come through the yard, along with three other moose at other times. Would definitely return. Our only disappointment was the view from the house itself across the water wasn't what we thought..that breathtaking view was from the cleared area 100 feet away overlooking Sterling Hwy. still, 5 stars!

Owners response: Good morning John,

Thanksgiving in Homer

Review submitted: December 4, 2013   Date of arrival: November 28, 2013

What a wonderful way to spend Thanksgiving with our extended family of 8 on a getaway in Homer! The house is gorgeous and extremely comfortable, very close to downtown by car, and the views from the homestead are beautiful. Never been in a better stocked kitchen in a rental, either. It was a very cold weekend, but the fireplaces were fully stocked with dry wood and ready to go. The views of the stars from the hot tub were amazing. Thank you, Laughing Raven!
The log home and vaulted ceiling construction allows for sound to go through the house pretty freely, so the group needs to be on a similar schedule or be able to stay quiet if someone else is sleeping (or bring ear plugs like I did). There are also a lot of stairs, including up to the main level from the entrance.

I can't say enough about this property. I'd rate it 6 stars if I could. This is my second visit to the Laughing Raven and again it exceeded my expectations. It is clean clean clean. Excellent condition and the artwork, decorations and amenities are superb. There are 3 bedrooms with big comfy beds with clean and luxurious bedding! A beautiful loft with a large TV and DVD player and movies and open out sofa. Stereo system downstairs that is wired throughout the home. You can plug your iphone into the auxillary jack and have your music, But there is a nice selection of CD's. Floor to Ceiling Windows offering an incredible view from the living areas. Awesome hot tub on the deck complete with hot tub towels. A nice Weber Grill, firewood, two fireplaces, a gourmet kitchen with everything you need! Bathrooms that sparkle and imagine a steam shower! The views are beautiful from every window. Sit on the grass overlook and watch the sun set over Katchemak Bay with all the glaciers and homer spit and you'll feel on top of the world. Then hop in the hot tub for relaxation after Halibut Fishing... then light the fire at night and enjoy your fresh catch... you won't find a nicer place with all these amenities in all of Homer. We had Momma Moose and her calf in the driveway coming home from dinner. I was surprised to see how many previous guests (from guest book) had seen them. This property is very close to town maybe 5 minutes if you go slow? And it takes only 10 to get to the spit. Easy Easy. The owner, Mo is fantastic to work with and makes sure you have all your needs met. Very easy to deal with. Don't miss out on this place and book it without worries. You will not be disappointed.
