Homer Hotels & Lodges
For a small community, Homer offers plenty of overnight accommodation options, ranging from campgrounds to cabins to hotels. For a stay in the center of town, book the Homer Aspen Hotel, an all-suite property just minutes from hiking trails, beaches, and the Homer Spit.
Homer is located at the end of the Sterling Highway about five hours from Anchorage. It's a very popular destination for visitors and Alaskans alike. A wealth of activities can be accessed from Homer, including kayak and hiking trips across the water in Kachemak Bay State Park.
Home is also a popular fishing destination. The small town is known as the "Halibut Capital of the World," with people sometimes hauling in a fish of 200 pounds or more.
For those looking to embark upon a bear-viewing adventure, Homer offers several options for trips to Katmai National Park to witness the famous coastal brown bears that inhabit the sandy shorelines and grassy meadows.
For those short on time, regional flights are available from Anchorage, and it is possible to rent a car or hail one of the cab companies in town.
Travelers looking for accommodations across Kachemak Bay can visit the Homer Chamber of Commerce to find a variety of bed and breakfast, cabin, or camping options.
