“The perfect View!”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

All I can say is the cottage is perfect. It is comfortable, spacious, CLEAN and located in one of the most perfect locations one could ask for. My wife and I stayed a week and could have stayed longer. Lori and Ron were the perfect Hosts and couldn't have been nicer. Book here and you won't be disappointed. The cottage is great for 2 but has 2 beds in the living room for more, if needed. I worked remotely on my computer the whole week and had to pinch myself everytime I looked at the view. Spectacular..Pictures just don't do this place justice. Well worth the drive..Don't forget to take a day and go fishing..

“Excellent Rental!!”

We stayed at the Rising Tide Cottage for 7 nights, August 2015. After flying into Anchorage we enjoyed the beautiful drive down to Homer. The cottage's location is great for exploring the area and the views from the deck are AMAZING! Ron & Lori were excellent hosts and did not intrude on our privacy in any way. Lori's directions were very easy to follow and the unit was unlocked for our arrival with the keys on the counter. The unit was VERY clean (spotless!) and had everything we needed for our stay. I am known for my Princess & The Pea critique of beds and I have to say - the beds in this unit were super comfy! The day beds are great to relax, read a book and enjoy the amazing views. There is a big screen TV (although we only used it to listen to music; too exciting to be in Alaska to watch much TV!). We really enjoyed the fireplace and comfortable recliners. The spa and firepit were very welcome perks after a day of exploring the area, hiking and fishing. The view was ever changing with the tide and although the steps down to the beach were a little scary for me, they were super sturdy and once I started down, it was a breeze. The beach below was isolated and it was fun to see the various sea critters and birds. The Internet was very reliable; we used each day to check on our business. Homer is a wonderful little town with some truly excellent restaurants. We used our Trip Advisor app and found lots of delightful places to eat. Lori is very friendly and she was helpful with information about the area. Winston (their doggie) was super cute, although he was always supervised by Lori, but as 'dog people' we enjoyed his little loving energy! We rarely stay at the same place twice because we love to explore, but I must admit, we are already talking about returning to this enchanting cottage and bringing our daughter & grandson to share another Alaska adventure with us! We also drove by a couple of other rentals and with each one we were convinced that we picked the perfect spot to stay!

“Look no further...this place is amazing all around!!”

This place has unparalleled views that can't be beat!! Within our first 30 minutes of sitting outside enjoying our incredible view a bald eagle flew by 20 feet away at eye level, then we look down and sea otters are swimming around below in the bay. We were dumbfounded by this and the view is truly one of the best views I have ever seen. The hot tub was a great bonus after a day of hiking in the national forest. The kids enjoyed playing bocci ball and corn-hole right in the front lawn. The cottage itself feels like you are living in a pottery barn commercial. Super comfortable beds and furniture make it so easy to fall in love with this place. The beds that are toe to toe are basically 2 twin beds so they have plenty of leg room for teens or adults. Lori the owner was a great source of information and had fantastic recommendations for places to eat and places to go. Lori and her husband live on site with their adorable dog Winston but you wouldn't even know they were there. We thoroughly enjoyed our chats with Lori when we did see her and we missed our dog so we welcomed some play time with Winston. I don't believe there is a better place to stay in Homer! Book it now!

“Can't wait to come back”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I LOVED staying here. The pictures just dont do it justice. The views are singular and spectacular. The owners, Lori and Ron are next door. They were very friendly, welcoming and inviting, but they didnt interfere with our stay or anything. They let us have our space. There were 2 couples, 1 toddler and 1 baby in our group. The house was very cozy and it had everything you needed. Everything was very clean, the mattress was comfortable. The babies had enough room to run around. There isnt a stove or oven, but you can certainly make due with the skillet, microwave, bbq, etc.
I look forward to returning here someday!

“Beautiful location and view.”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This cottage was sturdy and clean with beautiful views. After combining it's close to town location, view, comfort, and amenities I feel it's safe to say it would be difficult to find an equal to this home away from home.
