If you want your Alaska experience to be something more than a few days in a generic hotel room, this would be an ideal choice. We stayed in a cute, two-story cabin that had everything we needed for our stay, including a kitchenette with stove burners, a small fridge, and glasses, plates, and utensils; a living room with a sofa, table, and small TV; a breakfast area with stools; and a large, comfortable bed in a sloped-ceiling, second-story room. All of this was steps away from Beluga Lake, where we could watch float planes take off and land, see the morning fog settle over the water, and relax near a small, private dock with chairs and an area for a fire. The lodge is part of Emerald Air Service, which offers its own tours, though booking a tour isn't required for a stay. Homer Brewing Company was a quick walk down the street, and Fresh Sourdough Express bakery and cafe was a block away. All of the restaurants and attractions on Homer Spit were a short drive away. There are only a few cabins on the property, and chances are you'll meet some of the other folks who are staying there -- whether from a different town or a different country.
