|Minimum Stay||1 - 10 nights|
Located on the world famous Kenai Peninsula on the banks of Resurrection Bay, Seward is one of Alaska’s most beautiful and historic cities. Seward's proximity to the Kenai Fjords National Park make it a must stop location for all who visit Alaska. Conveniently located only 126 miles south of Anchorage, visitors can travel to Seward via the scenic Seward Highway, the AK Railroad system, by bus, air, or ship. Seward is also less than a one hour drive from Kenai River fishing. Depending on the time of year, outdoor experiences can include sport fishing, wildlife cruises, sailing, hiking, kayaking, flight seeing tours, glacier viewing, dog sled rides, cross-country skiing and snow machining. Additionally, visitors to Seward enjoy our Alaska Sealife Center, many unique shops, fine restaurants and galleries featuring local artists.
Spectacular mountain and bay views will greet you upon your arrival. Around the corner from the Alaska Sealife Center and downtown Seward, the location of this cozy, bay front home is perfect. Amenities include full kitchen, two full baths, laundry, and sleeping accommodations for up to ten guests. There is also a chest freezer for your daily catch. Cable television is available in two bedrooms and a television with a DVD player is available in the living room. Spot eagles and otters right from the picture windows. Take your coffee and watch the sunrise over the Kenai Fjords every morning during your stay (Depending on the time of year, that might mean getting up very early!). Enjoy Mt. Marathon views as you grill in the backyard or take an evening stroll along the beach. Plenty of board games and books are also available for you to enjoy in front of the fireplace.
We have been thrilled to open the cottage to those exploring Seward since 2008. We have lived in Alaska for 20 years now and we fell in love with Seward the first time we visited.
Seward Properties purchased this cottage in 2006
The location of this property is incredible! We love our views, the proximity to town and that the Sealife Center is right around the corner. The cottage itself has a great deal of character and charm, a classic Seward home!
I love the location of this house! It is close to everything, has a great view and is very spacious. I feel like it was a great deal for the price and, if I ever return to Seward, I would stay here again.
While the cottage is nicely decorated, there are some improvements needed. All sleeping rooms need room darkening shades for folks unaccustomed to 24-hour daylight. The kitchen pans are marginal to unusable. Hot pads would be handy. In this fishing community, the owners demand that fish be cooked on the outside grill which is on it's last legs. And grilling in a pouring rain, so common in AK, is no fun. The jets on the downstairs tub don't work. The VRBO description says the cottage has wireless, but it doesn't. The smoke alarm in the upstairs bedroom didn't work. We wouldn't recommend this property to anyone.
Great views. Downstairs stillllll has mold issues. Had respiratory issues since stay. Downstairs bat jetted tub that does not work. Downstairs had 3 air freshen devices to cover up mold smell. I loved the views but would not return as the downstairs should not be used until the mold /mildew issue has been resolved.
We stayed in this cottage for 2 days in August 2013 after getting off the Statendam (HAL from Vancouver). There were 10 adults, and I was amazed at how comfortably we all fit in this small house. Originally a one bedroom, they finished off the basement adding a bedroom, a very large bathroom and laundry facility. They finished off the attic adding sleeping for 4 in a clean comfortable well-lit great room. We managed to sleep all 10 without anyone sleeping on a sofa or in the living area, which is great when you have some who stay up late and others who wake early. Only complaints: you can hit your head against the roof in the attic bedroom if you don't stand in the middle of the room. Basement had a small musty smell. For the money, these small inconveniences were no big deal. The location can't be beat. It is directly across the street from the beautiful Resurrection Bay, a short walk to restaurants and galleries in the rustic and charming town center, and blocks from the Sealife center. I definitely recommend.
This was just the right size for the nine members of our family. Very spacious and clean. Plenty of beds. The rental agency was very helpful and easy to deal with. I would recommend that they give you more towels, we had exactly enough for the number of people and there were no towels or dishcloths in the kitchen. I would definitely stay here again.
We stayed here in July as a family. It was clean with a good layout. There are three levels. There is the ground level, which has 1 bedroom, and 1 bathroom. It has a queen bed, and dark curtains. There is a basement level, which has 1 larger bedroom with a king bed and a day bed with a large bathroom. My husband (age 31) and brother-in-law (age 36) both slipped down the carpeted stairs more than once. This is a liability for the homeowners, and needs to be addressed. This sublevel was really nice, and dark, but the smell of mildew is definitely present, as this caused a few family members to get a sore throat/headache. This will deter us from renting here again. The upstairs had 4 twin beds, but the ceiling is an upside down v, and some hit their head on the low ceiling, but would be a good space for short folks, or kiddos. The location is great, and convenient. We ate at Chinooks, which was DELICIOUS!!
We stayed in this home with three couples. It was perfect. The house was very clean, well equipped, and comfortable. It has beautiful water views and easy access to everything. If we return to Seward we will definitely stay here again.
