Garden Retreat property offers easy accessibility to all the delights Homer has to offer. And Homer has so much to offer in addition to The Spit. . . year-round. The many fine restaurants are a definite must when exploring our town - a true culinary experience. There are several art galleries that offer unique, not-to-be-missed shopping opportunities with offerings from many of the local artists for which Homer is becoming famous. Old Town features new arts of both the culinary and visual kind, plus a bit of Homer history for you to absorb as you walk between the Old Town Art Gallery, the different eateries, and Bishop's Beach. There are multiple opportunities for beach walks . . . Diamond Ridge Hike ends on a beautiful and secluded beach when you might want some quiet time. At the Garden Retreat you are 100 yards away from a paved bike path that will take you through town and out to the Spit, or a vigorous walk up East Hill for some eye-popping views all the way to Mt. Augustine .
