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.

Stay at Alaska River Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Alaska River Cottage in June , total of 7 of us and it was fantastic! The scenery was spectacular, we saw eagles on our first day. It was exactly what we were looking for, beautiful scenery, fishing, hiking and close proximity to shopping and fishing excursions. Our hosts were wonderful and made us feel very welcome. I would recommend it to anyone!

Best cabin near Seward & Kenai Fjords!

My husband and I along with another couple stayed at Russ & Jen's cabin for 3 nights. We had the best time grilling salmon on the deck, fishing in the river in front of the cabin using a rod that Russ lent us, and exploring the gorgeous surroundings.

Russ & Jen are truly the best hosts you could ask for -- Russ told us about things we should see and do in the area, and gave us a good feel for what it's like to live a self-sufficient life of fishing & hunting in Alaska. Jen brought us delicious pastries from her bakery The Ranting Raven in downtown Seward.

The location is perfect -- just a short 20 minute drive to Seward & Exit Glacier with breathtaking views of the bay the entire way. We must have stopped at least 3 times every time to take pictures.

This was by far our favorite cabin during our 10 day Alaskan Adventure! We would definitely stay again!

Seward fishing trip with the guys!

  • 5 of 5
The whole experience, from booking with Russ, through our three night stay was great. The cabin exceeded our expectations and proved very comfortable for the four of us. Jennifer even surprised us with an apple cake that made for a great snack on our way out in the morning. Our only regret was that we were too tired each day after fishing all day to take advantage of the grill and fire pit on the river. PS. Fishing was great too! We left Seward with 227 lbs of Salmon, Halibut and Ling Cod. A real treat for a bunch of guys from Missouri. We'll be back......

Expectations High... Not Met At All!

  • 2 of 5
We arrived to a rather run down looking place, not like the pictures indicated. No stove, only a half working hotplate. Our commode was not plugged by perhaps previous visitor. No place to sit after a long day of hiking or sightseeing except for the kitchen table and with 6 adults, it was cramped. Couldn't sit outside without getting carried away by mosquitoes. Kept hoping to see fresh pastries as indicated by other guest who signed the guest book, never happened. Said we ould have washer and dryer, not there. Towels were scarce, one per person for entire stay. Place unlocked, and when we tried to lock our bedroom doors the door opened just by pushing it. Would not even consider staying here again. Too costly and not up to our VRBO standards.

Owner's Response: It seems as though we get an unhappy guest like this once a year. The day they showed up he came over to our house with a plunger in his hand and said that the toilet was plugged. We thoroughly clean the toilets and flush them every cleaning. I did the cleaning so I knew that he was the one who clogged the toilet. I told him to plunge a little harder and if that didn't work to come back and I would do it. He never came back or said anything else.
There are 3 hot plates, one double (both work) and 2 single , that work, and a cook top on the gas grill.. It was raining . We do what we can to keep the bugs away. We have many bird houses to encourage birds and keep our large lawns mowed. Our prices are the lowest in the area. As you can see the 2 star rating is between a bunch of 5 star ratings and should not be taken seriously. We have hundreds and hundreds of happy visitors who have recorded so in our guest books. We serve pastries from our bakery when we have extra at the end of the day. Some people just don't know how be happy on vacation. To discredit VRBO and our business, because they are unhappy is just rude and wrong.

Beautiful relaxing cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Russ and Jen's cabin, unfortunately we were only able to stay one night but would love to come back someday! Everything was very clean and each room has their own bathroom which is wonderful. The view from deck is gorgeous. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice relaxing weekend getaway!

Excellent Cottage

  • 5 of 5
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.
