Don't Miss This Inn!

5 on June 19, 2016

Majestic View Inn has SO much going for it I almost don’t know where to begin, so I’ll just start with the inn itself. Driving up the winding road to the inn the first thing that hits you is the amazing view! And you think the inn couldn’t possibly offer anything more gorgeous to look at. If you think that, you will be wrong! The view at the inn is more than just amazing, it is truly mystical, and well, majestic, aptly named indeed! Our wonderful, gracious innkeeper Maria, met us at the door and gave us a tour. It was difficult to try to take in the view out of the huge windows under soaring ceilings, and the very interesting, inviting common areas at the same time. We had the Blueberry Room on the main floor, which was very large, with two comfortable beds with super soft, clean linens and once again, huge windows overlooking that to-die-for view. Maria had thought of every appointment one could need in both the bedroom and the lovely private bath. Now for the breakfast which again, I don’t know where to start, as there were so many delicious dishes; fresh baked muffins, pancakes, fresh fruit and yogurt, bacon and sausage and a gorgeous blueberry Dutchbaby!! Oh MY! If that weren’t enough, the next morning Maria made the absolutely best french toast I have ever had the pleasure of scarfing down! Husband Tim (the consummate outdoor/activity guide, took us and another couple staying at the inn Halibut fishing, hiking, and exploring the many sights and wonders of the area, on his boat. Then he cleaned, filleted and grilled those fish and we all had a fabulous dinner on the deck, complete with fire pit, and then Maria brought out fixins' for smores! What a totally WOW experience in Homer! Thank you Maria and Tim for giving us a MAJOR highlight of our two week Alaska trip! Whatever you do, don’t miss The Majestic View Inn!!


Awesome Welcome Home Away From Home

4.8 on December 26, 2015

Our hostess made us feel like family. Awesome, very clean rooms and landscape overlooking Homer Spit was beautiful. Amazing cook-- Breakfasts were 4-6 course meals. Answered any questions we had about Homer, very friendly pets and the living area ding area and deck are included in your stay. The best bed and breakfast Moments in Time Photography has ever stayed at ! We miss you and your family and Homer Alaska! Thank you once again!


View is Terrific

2.8 on September 02, 2015

This is only the 4th B&B we have stayed in so perhaps I don't really know what to expect. This is a large home that sits on the side of a mountain overlooking Homer and the Spit. View is unparalleled. The bedrooms are used for the guests and otherwise, you are in Marie's home. Our bath and bedroom were clean. The rest of the home was cluttered and dusty. Several pets are in the home as well as a lot of fragrances. Breakfast was great. Marie was very friendly also.


Would come back.

We had three rooms for two nights. All were very nice with all the amenities. Breakfasts were outstanding, and the view truly is majestic! We hope to return soon.


We nicknamed our room The Moose-Watching Room

Fantastic breakfast, beautiful home, and simply the friendliest hostess. Thank you Maria for a fantastic getaway in Homer. LOVED your French bread/blueberry bread pudding dish and everything else you made... Like Alaskan pancakes!


Hospitality and a good night's sleep

3.6 on July 18, 2015

The Majestic View is true to its name, overlooking the spectacular Homer hillside and Katchemak Bay. We stayed in a cabin, which is nice because it has its own kitchenette, and it's more private than a room inside the house. This B&B is all about hospitality, and Maria is warm and welcoming. She's also a spectacular cook. If you ask for the apple pancake, you will want to stay another night.


A Special Place

5 on September 11, 2014

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at Majestic View. We have now stayed in 2 different rooms, each with private bathrooms, and they are both unusually spacious and comfortable for a B&B; both with great views of Homer, water and mountains. Maria herself is personable and a delight, with great knowledge of the area. It is definitely worth the ride up from town for the view and spacious accommodations. We saw several moose in the area of the B&B, a bonus for us. Maria's husband had just caught a number of salmon around the Homer Spit, which he smoked at the B&B. I believe these were intended for the family, not the B&B guests. Perhaps he noticed us longingly looking at them out on the kitchen counter because he offered us a taste at breakfast. Sooo good! Breakfast would have been outstanding even without the salmon. After a huge serving of pancakes, Maria asked us how we wanted our eggs cooked. To say that the full cooked breakfast was delicious and plentiful would be an understatement. My wife and I have stayed at many B&B's across North America, from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island and throughout the U.S. Maria's Majestic View has it all.


August Visit to Homer

A well run local B&B that has a family feel. Breakfast can be a little hectic and crowded but it was a quality stay.


Cottonwood room

3.0 on August 04, 2014

We booked the last available room - the Cottonwood room. Unfortunately for us, it had no view (there is a gorgeous view from the back of the house!/back porch where they have a fire in the firepit in the evenings - we were always gone, so did not get the opportunity to enjoy) The room was very warm - only one small window opened and there was no fan. There were two beds - a single that was VERY uncomfortable and a double. There was an old mattress in open closet..looked like it was very last minute put together. Apparently there are a lot of return visitors that get the premium rooms with the view. Maria was very cordial, but "busy" with her repeat visitors. Breakfasts were good, but too carbohydrate loaded for us.


Enjoyable retreat with beautiful view!

Wonderful relaxing time and we were made to feel like friends immediately. Great breakfast! Highly recommend this Inn for your vacation in Homer.
