Accommodations & Travel

Land's End
The drive to Homer is regarded as one of the most spectacular drives in Alaska and in North America. It winds along the coast through a mountain pass, traversing a state park, a National Forrest, a Moose Preserve, and other notable landmarks. As you approach Homer, the snow capped mountains of the Alaska Range loom to the west, with 12,000 ft. volcanic Mt. Redoubt, Mt. Illiamna and the smaller St. Augustine standing guard.
Perched on the water’s edge, at the tip of the Homer Spit, Land’s End Resort is truly a world-class location. It’s also the only hotel on the Homer Spit. Views from the rooms, the outdoor deck and Chart Room Restaurant all capture the full splendor of the Kenai Mountains and their glaciers, as well as the inter-tidal area surrounding the Spit. The hotel is a short walk to the small boat harbor, the famous “Salty Dawg Saloon” and all the art and craft shops along the Harbor rim.  Soak in the oceanfront hot tub while you watch the charter boats and commercial fishing boats round the Homer Spit and head out to sea. Stroll along the miles of beach just outside your door, where sightings of otters, seals, whales, and eagles are common. The Chart Room Restaurant is one of Homer’s most popular eating places, open year round and featuring local oysters, halibut and salmon. Visit the gift shop and Espresso bar for unique Alaskan gifts and fresh coffee!
