This is a 14' dry yurt above Bear Canyon. Canyon Rim Trail runs just outside your door. During your stay, you'll take in beautiful views of Kachemak Bay and the Homer Spit. We are located east of Homer, 1/2 mile above the walking/biking trail that runs from Homer along East End Road. We are also just 1/2 mile (a 10 minute walk) from Bear Creek Winery.

Convenient to the spit. Very clean. Lots of extras. Both sleeping areas very comfortable. Loved the view from the outhouse.

Jolene went above and beyond for us and I happily recommend her! Due to being delayed by wildfires along the highway and unsure we’d even make it to Homer, we didn’t book her place until very late, perhaps 10pm, for an arrival after midnight. Jolene immediately replied confirming…

View is amazing! The yurt is comfortable and has a lot of helpful local tips for travelers. There are great touches like sleep masks, snacks and water. I’m a lifelong Alaskan and world traveler. Jolene’s yurt has much more than expected.

Jolene's Yurt is so adorable! Has everything needed for a stay or two. You have the ability to hike right outside the Yurt and get a view of Homer's Spit. Pretty convenient to get to and perfect for a couple on a roadtrip!

Hi! I'm Jolene. I was raised on a small dairy farm in Wisconsin. After working in restaurants for most of my adult life, I paid my way to Alaska selling pies (and yes, I was chasing after a fisherman). When I don't have guests, I can usually be seen gardening, building things…
Interaction with guests
My family and I live in one of three yurts on the same property. We love to interact with guests if that's what they want, and if they prefer to be left alone, we can do that too. I'm usually easy to reach by phone, or you can feel free to knock on the door if you need something.
