9. Spacious cabin overlooking the mountain and sea (from USD 320)

We agree that the best nights in Homer are spent next to the fire pit with a warm beverage in hand. That’s why this spacious log home makes it to this list. It has a nice fireplace and an open-air deck facing the mountains and water. The loft comes furnished with a queen-sized bed and ensuite bathroom. The room above the stairwell is appointed with two twin beds. When you step into the kitchen area, you’ll find that the pantry is well-stocked. The house is also built with large windows so guests can enjoy the ever-changing hues of the sky. In fact, don’t be surprised to see moose walking through the yard, eagles flying around, and even sea otters swimming - from the windows!
