SCENIC ALASKA RIVER COTTAGE

Seward Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

My wife Jennifer and I chose this spot on Trail River to raise our children because of its incredible beauty. Trail River Gardens is located just 20 min from Seward in the heart of the Chugach mountains on beautiful Trail River. From our deck the river is just 50 feet away with the majestic Mount Madison as a back drop. There are lakes above and below us with mountains on all sides. You can walk to hiking trails to even more mountain lakes. If you like to hike and watch birds and other wildlife, then you will love it here at Trail River gardens.

We have lived in Alaska for 30 yrs here on beautiful Trail River. We also have a gift store, coffee shop and bakery in Seward.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1994

I built the vacation rental because of the beautiful location. The cottage was originally built in the 1940's and I completely rebuilt it in 1997.

The cottage is located just 50 feet from the river. the view from the deck is no less than spectacular. There are lakes above and below us with mountains on all sides. There are lots of birds and other wildlife around us and many hiking trails.

Excellent Cottage

I rented this cottage with my family and loved it! We filled the cottage with 9 people but having separate rooms and bathrooms still ensured that it was a comfortable stay. The views were amazing with Trail River being right behind the cottage and mountains beyond it. The drive into Seward took about 25 minutes and was very scenic. Overall this was a great place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone looking for some peace and quiet and a real Alaska experience.

A Wonderful Cottage in a Beautiful State

We found this cottage here at VRBO and called Russ and Jen to book it. We arrived late on August 20th after a long day of flying. After being up over 24 hours we were looking forward to a place to lay our heads. We were pleasantly surprised when we finally got here. We found the three bedrooms to be plenty large enough for the nine of us, 8 adults and one child.The cottage was neat and clean, and worked well as our home port while visiting Alaska. When we awoke the next morning to see the Trail River with the mountains in the background it was breathtaking. I read a review talking about the deck being small and no living room, the deck had plenty of room for our use, was perfect for having morning coffee and watching the river. As for not having a living room, I'm amazed at how someone can be in such a scenic state and want to sit around a living room. As I said this was a great home port, with so much to do we were in and out often. In the entire week we were there the only problem we had was in the early morning when 8 adults were trying to get to the coffee! The kitchen table made a great family game location, beds were comfortable, and having three bathrooms was a plus. Jen surprised us with a delicious blueberry coffee cake and it was wonderful. Thanks Russ and Jen for helping make our Alaskan visit a memorable one!

Very Pretty and Comfortable

Trail river was right outside our cottage. Enjoyed relaxing on the nice deck looking out into the trimmed lawn with wild flowers and planted flower beds. Used the grill for fresh salmon and then enjoyed the wonderful stone fire pit for marshmallows and hotdogs the next evening. Russ and Jen were excellent hosts. Bedrooms were spacious with fireplace gas heating and private baths. Definitely would return to this cottage.

Decent place to sleep

The cabin was clean and functional. A couple things to consider: 1. The photo of the deck is actually the owner's deck, not the deck attached to the rental unit. The deck on the rental unit is maybe 1/2 or 1/3 the size. 2. There is no living room. If you are planning on hanging out in the cabin, you'll be sitting on the wooden chairs around the kitchen table. They must have converted the living room into a bedroom. We got there late and only were there to sleep before a fishing trip out of Seward early the next morning, so that ended up not being much of a problem. However, it was slightly awkward sitting around in the kitchen table having a beer with everyone before bed. 3. The single beds listed in the description are actually Murphy beds that pull down from the walls in the bedrooms. The owners were accommodating to the fact that we booked late and showed up late.
Owner's Response: This guest called to stay the same night as they called. We had an opening so I agreed to a one night stay. One of my pics is from my deck next door and is very similar to the view from the cottage. The purpose of the pic is to show the view , not the size of the deck. I will ad more pics to be more accurate. The cottage does not have a living room because we wanted more space for bathrooms in each bedroom. The murphy beds have very comfortable Seeley and Englander matresses. We don't usually do one night stays but it looks as though "no good deed goes unpunished". I hope they are happier in the next place that they stay. I have never had any complaint before.

Our first experience in Alaska

We hated to say good bye. The location was centrally located to activities we wanted to do. Fishing was available at the cottage and was close to fishing and glacier cruise out of Seward. We enjoyed the sights and the cottage was very comfortable and clean. Our hosts, Russ and Jen, were very friendly and helpful with all our needs. I would highly recommend.
