Bed, breakfast and friendship

4.2 on September 09, 2012

Rosie and Erless not only provided us with a cozy place to sleep and wonderful breakfasts, they made us feel completely at home in their house. Erless even found us a way to ship home a 5-foot long decorative souvenir of our Alaska trip.


A great 8 day stay!

5 on September 04, 2012

I stayed here for 8 days, which is told is their longest to date :-) Every morning I had a nice, full breakfast and every evening a cup of hot tea and orange juice :-) Five stars for service and for helpful guidance and what to see and do. Location offers wonderful views of the spit, and if you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of a black bear. There are no street lamps here so your evening star gazing will be perfect. One note on location: it is up a steep hill. No problem in the summer but I suspect it gets icy quickly during the winter.


Great Bed & Breakfast

We loved our stay and visit with Rosie & Erless. We have stayed at several bed & Breakfasts and this was best. Rosie and Erless were gracious and very accomodating. The breakfast was fantasic. John & Belionda Monts


Great B&B

4.8 on August 23, 2012

Room was a bit small. That is the only thing that was not the best B&B I have stayed at. The view was out standing and the food was the same. The view is more than worth the stay.


A Rosy Outlook B&B surpassed all expectations

5 on August 08, 2012

This was the most outstanding B&B we encountered in our travels thru Alaska. The view from the front window is unbelievable- the Homer Spit, Kachemak Bay, snow-capped mountains, and beautiful blue glaciers all in one eyefull. The flower gardens around the house and yard are beautiful. The Forget-Me-Not room was comfortable and very clean. Rosie and Erless are "fun" people- we had a lot of laughs and they really made us feel comfortable in their home. We highly recommend this B&B.
