The Space

If you are looking for reasonably priced, rurally located, clean accommodation managed by an informative host who respects your need for privacy, The Bed in the Bog is your best option. This is a comfortable bedroom in a quiet neighborhood, half way between the communities of Homer and Anchor Point. It includes a private bath/shower and 24/7 kitchen access. Beautiful skiing/hiking trails in the neighborhood, with views of Mt. Redoubt Volcano and area ponds, wildlife, spruce, and local swamp denizens. A pottery studio and gallery are within walking distance of the property. Ready for your day of fun in Homer? It's a 12-minute drive south, with gorgeous views along the way from Baycrest Hill. Time to fish the Anchor River? It's just two minutes from your room!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We did not meet Kate but she emailed us directions and once we arrived we spoke on the phone. We were able to contact Kate at any time during our stay if there were any questions or problems. Kate's home was cosy and very comfortable in a very private and peaceful setting. We would definitely recommend this listing.

  • What an idyllic place to stay! Beautiful location, quiet, "away from it all", private, and very comfortable. Everything was very clean, and I was able to use the kitchen anytime. Kate and her son were extremely nice and welcoming. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

  • Kate has a lovely home and was super welcoming and cool.. Thanks!

  • Kate’s room and bath are large and well furnished. She turned over her house to us and we enjoyed the comfortable accommodations and the views of the surrounding environment. We wish we had scheduled a longer stay so we could have spent more time exploring the area around her house. We would enthusiastically recommend Kate’s accommodations to those looking for a quiet, out-of-the-way place with a real outback Alaskan environment. Enjoyed our stay!

  • Kate's place was very comfortable and clean. She prepared eveything for us upon arrival and was flexible with our early check-in requirement. Her house is located in a beautiful area, with a great view outside the window. We would recommend other travelers consider staying at Kate's. Thank you, Kate!

  • Kate is an excellent host! She is friendly and helpful and I was very comfortable talking with her. The home, as advertised, is in the woods (forest and meadow views) and offers a great deal of privacy and quiet. I enjoyed my visit and will stay here again on future visits.

  • The house was perfect for our mid-week getaway. Kate was also very helpful with her recommendations.

  • Still pretty new to Air B&B, so I haven't been very prompt with my reviews. The Bed in the Bog was great. We had lots of privacy, and the accomodations were very cozy. Thanks for a great experience.

  • My husband and I had a wonderful time in Kate's home! We didn't get to meet her as she was fishing, but she graciously entrusted her whole home to us to use while in Homer.
    The house is just gorgeous and we had the master bedroom with a super comfy bed and delightful views from our window - peace and tranquility.
    The Bed and the Bog is slightly out of homer, but we didn't mind the little drive into town at all, as you get great views of the bay coming in - and it's nice to come home to this secluded home at the end of the day :)

From east coast US, I've lived in Alaska 30 years. I like theater and music. My life is very full-- I like to give guests as much privacy as is possible in a small house, and at the same time, I am happy to provide local info and recommendations.
