Bay Avenue Bed and Breakfast

1393 Bay Ave. , Homer, AK 99603 USA (Show map)


Welcome to Bay Avenue, a seaside Bed and Breakfast located on the bluff at the very edge of Kachemak Bay in Homer, Alaska. We are situated between the famous Homer Spit and Homer town center. In addition to our scenic views, we offer guests a quiet, comfortable and convenient starting (or ending!) point for any Alaskan Adventure. The mature spruce trees surrounding the house are favorite perching spots for the many bald eagles in our area. Observe the lagoon and tidal flats below us where shorebirds, waterfowl and Sandhill Cranes gather. Sit back and view the 15-20 foot tides ebb and flow, or the fishing fleet heading for the grounds, all surrounded by majestic mountains and glaciers. Bay Avenue Bed and Breakfast Inn offers both the privacy of a hotel and the friendly atmosphere of a B&B. With seven rooms in the Main House along with two separate units, there are many options for singles, couples and group travelers.

Beautiful view

4.0 on September 06, 2015

As we drove up to the house, we were greeted by a variety of beautiful summer flowers. Our upstairs room overlooking Katchemak Bay and the Spit was clean, nicely appointed and comfortable. The living and dining areas were inviting and comfortable and there was so much tourist information available that it seemed like a "mini Visitors Bureau". The view of the mountains across the bay as the sun was setting and the light changed was spectacular and watching the tide come in and go out was fascinating. Both hot and cold breakfasts were available and there were options to meet most dietary needs. One morning Lori cooked sourdough pancakes with wild blueberries they had picked earlier in the summer. YUMMY! We enjoyed our stay in Homer and Bay Avenue and would recommend it without hesitation.

We loved the Bay Avenue B&B in Homer. The location was super, the entire house was clean and nicely appointed, our room was beautiful and had a view to match, and the breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Two thumbs up! Would love to return!

We had a delightful, refreshing stay at Bay Avenue B&B. This was our second visit and we will be going back. Lori and her family were gracious hosts. Lori even went out of her way to help return a lost item to us. The house has great views, comfortable beds and easy access to everything in Home.

Wonderful stay in Homer

Our stay at the Bay Avenue Bed and Breakfast was wonderful. The location was perfect (definitely ask for a room with a view!). The rates were reasonable. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The only small thing I would mention is that the heated breakfast items were sometimes cold when we came down for breakfast and it might help to keep them on warmers.

Much More Than a Place to Sleep

The B&B had a really nice layout with a great view of the bay. The additional entrance and small kitchenette for the upstairs rooms was convenient. The rooms had handy storage space, were a good size and clean. Breakfast was the best of our trip. The owner is a ball of energy and a wealth of information yet personable. We would definitely go back.

Simply Marvelous!

Our time at Bay Avenue B&B was wonderful. The hospitality couldn't have been better. Lori gave advice about kayaking, hiking, places to eat, etc. I like to run and it's an easy few blocks to get onto the spit and the biking/running trail. Glorious!

Very relax and comfort stay

I didn't expect too much since it's just B&B, not luxury hotel. But this stay brought me very pleasant feeling. Everything are just perfect, far beyond my expectation.

Our stay with Bay Ave B&B was excellent

We were a little concerned about staying in a bed and breakfast but our stay with Bay Avenue B&B was so good we will try B&B's again. We met some very nice and interesting people. The property was so clean and well kept and the hostess, Lori, made you feel right at home. Both mornings we were there, the food was delicious! I cannot say enough good things about our stay.
