More about Beluga Lake Lodge Homer

Beluga Lake

by AlbuqRay

Beluga Lake with its associated slough and wetlands is located on the road from Old Town Homer on the way to the Spit. It is a beautiful place but pretty far from anything. There are many float planes parked around the lake. Evidently, during tough winters with deep snows, Homer-area moose congregate in the Beluga Lake wetlands near the airport to feed and rest. The Beluga Lake Lodge is on the hill overlooking the lake and has nice views; however, it is looking a little old. I would check the online reviews before staying there.

Homer lodgings

by smbslt99

I'm going to be in Homer for 3-4 days at the end of August and am trying to decide where to stay, if I stay outside of town, is it a pain to drive in and find parking in town? Thanks.

Parking in the town area of Homer is no problem except maybe on weekends. The "Spit" is busy all summer long, but parking is still available most of the time.

Hey there,
I was actually in Homer for a week this past summer and loved it so much, I am moving there from Vermont in three months. The summer is definetly a busy place, but if you know where to look, you can find a great place. My fiance and I stayed above the fishing charter company we booked with. They had a great little studio apartment above their charter company right on the homer spit. It was incredibly affordable, had a kitchen, views of the ocean, and the owners were just phenominal. The charter company's name is North Country Charters. Like I said, the owners were just awesome, and you don't have to book a charter with them in order to rent their spectacular bungalow! Take care and good luck

no problem staying out of town. and you will get the amazing around-the-corner top-of-the-hill view every day when you drive in.

my impression from the handful of visits to Homer is that there is no obvious rip-off place to stay, and there is no obvious gem. all are kind of pricey, but they have to make their living in some pretty limited timeframes.

The Spit is just a 2-lane road that goes up & down. At the end is a hotel/restaurant called Land's End Hotel and a lot of people just cast off their rocky shore & bring up halibut, rockfish, etc. Summer in Homer is busy and parking is kind of iffy sometimes. A lot of people stay in some of the B&Bs/hotels that are not on The Spit but on the road leading to the Spit and they just walk to the end or bike. There's a bike/jogging trail that runs right along the road and it gets used a lot!

Travel Tips for Homer

A rainy day in Homer

by goingsolo

Homer is a coastal town which receives a great deal of rainfall. Alaskans seem to adapt to the rain and just go about their activities. Rain may put a damper on the otherwise scenic views from Katchemak Bay and on any plans for a sunny stroll along the Spit, but its pretty much business as usual. Kayak tours and charter fishing trips go on as scheduled, unless inclement weather is combined with rough seas.

Anchor Point

by mht_in_la

Anchor Point is a tiny village with a huge campground and RV park. It's about 10 miles northwest of Homer on Sterling Highway. I put this tip here on Homer page because Anchor Point is hardly considered to be a travel destination itself.

As seen in photo, Anchor Point is north America's most westerly highway point. Most visitors to Homer just drive by Anchor Point without turning head, unless they plan to camp here or take a photo of the sign like I did.

Do not feed the Eagles

by jumpingwithnorman

Bald eagles abound in Alaska and some actually stay in Homer. But be warned. Do NOT feed them. There is a local ordinance that prohibits everyone except those approved by the council to feed any of the eagles. There was a local lady that would feed an eagle from her backyard but she passed away in Jan 2009. A friend of hers was to continue the feeding through Mar 2009 but it is not known at this time if the council will continue the feedings or allow them to taper off. The bald eagle that we saw was just hanging out at the top of a lamp post.

Pick up Chicks

by kaloz

The Wagon Wheel is Homer's source for garden and pet supplies. The sign is humerous, but refers to baby chicks, not the wild college type usually found on the spit and in the Salty Dog.

Alaskans tend to spend there summers out of doors, and gardening is a popular past time. Many Alaskans also life a subsistance life-style, and raise chicks and other farm animals. Visit my Palmer Alaska page for views of the State Fair.
