Overview

Seward House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This is a beautiful, custom-built log home located just outside of downtown Seward. The previous owners spent ten years building the house, and cut down and hand-peeled all the logs themselves. It's a true Alaskan work of art, and there's nothing else like it in the Seward area.

We purchased the home in 2007, and live in a small apartment over the detached garage on the property. So, we are around to help with local activities and information and make sure you get the most out of your vacation! We have two dogs that live with us and play in the yard, but are not allowed in the log home.

This house provides a very comfortable home-away-from home while you're traveling, with all the amenities. The full kitchen is there for your use, there are large common areas - a huge slate fireplace surrounded by leather couches, TV / VCR / DVD / High speed internet computer / Wi-Fi / Stereo, a grill and hot tub on the large front deck, a small covered back deck, etc. The house is modern and very clean, but cozy and comfortable. End your day relaxing in the hot tub or grilling out your fresh catch, while enjoying the view of Mt. Alice from the deck.

Perfect Place to Stay with Large Group

  • 5 of 5

The Bear Paw provided our large group the perfect place to stay while in Seward. The log cabin is very beautiful. The interior is well designed for total comfort. It has a large open kitchen with all the necessities for cooking along with a large dining room for enjoying the feast . Places to relax and spread out is available both downstairs in the main living area (large rock fireplace) or upstairs in the entertainment room. Games/Books/Videos provided. Each bedroom is meticulously clean and spacious. We enjoyed the views of the mountains while relaxing on the large deck which provided plenty of warm sun. The outdoor Hot Tub made for a fun evening. It is close to a nice beach for exploration. We particularly liked the fact that it was close enough to town (but not in town) to relax in peace and quiet. We all 'loved' this lodge and highly recommend it to future travelers.

Bear Paw Lodge - "Let's Play It Again, Sam!"

  • 5 of 5

This was a GREAT place to stay. Clean, spacious, well appointed kitchen. It met our every expectation in addition to being a beautiful log structure. I will stay here again and again when back in Seward. Can't say enough about Dave and Wendy (owners). They were great hosts. My only regret is we did not have time to do a kayak tour with them.

Perfect

We had planned on staying for a week with friends and family but due to unfortunate events our trip was cut to one night. Wendy was so understanding about everything and we just can't wait to go back for an extended stay at this inviting and beautiful lodge.

A beautiful place to stay in Seward

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 rented Bear Paw Lodge for several days and absolutely loved it. The house has plenty of room and is close enough to town to be convenient, but far enough from town to truly feel like Alaska. The house itself is beautiful and the hot tub was wonderful after long days of hiking, kayaking, etc. Wendy and Dave were great to work with and provided a lot of recommendations for fun things to do in the area. For example, they helped us book an amazing kayaking trip to Aialik bay. I just can't say enough good things about Bear Paw Lodge as well as Wendy and Dave. One note though. There is no washer or dryer there. Not a big deal because there is a laundromat in town.
