COZY SWEDISH-STYLE CABIN... OUR SPECIALTY IS IN THE DETAILS!

Seward Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Built by Stefan Nilsson, this little “doll house” was completed in July of 2005. Inspired by Stefan's Swedish heritage, this adorable cabin has typical Swedish siding stained forest green, with natural spruce trim.

The cabin is in a quiet wooded setting, located 5-10 minutes away from Seward's activities; yet our guests can still stay connected to the rest of the world with free wireless internet service!

The inside comfortably sleeps 4 guests, having a queen-sized bed in a cozy alcove, two twin beds up in the sleeping loft, and a sitting area which has a futon to accommodate extra guests. A full bathroom is located near the back entrance.

The kitchenette has a refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, and toaster. Next to the kitchen, a custom-built breakfast nook affords spectacular views of Mt. Eva and her hanging glacier. Rich wood details, from the tongue and groove ceiling to the colorful stained beams, adorn the inside of the cabin.

The finish carpentry, as well as the unique colors on the walls, beams, and interior door make this cabin a work of art.

Keywords: A custom built cabin, with Scandinavian details. Cozily tucked in amongst the towering Sitka Spruce trees with spectacular views of Mt. Eva.

Stefan and Binget Nilsson are your hosts along with their three children, Kjell (born 1999), Bjorn (born 2002), and Annika (born 2004). They moved to Seward in February of 1996. Binget grew up in Kenai, Alaska and spent many years fishing salmon on the banks of the Kenai River. After finishing college at the University of Washington in Seattle (1990), she put her pack on her back and went travelling down to New Zealand. In February of 1990, Stefan and Binget met on a bus (“The Magic Bus”) on the South Island of New Zealand and fell in love. At the end of the trip, neither thought they would see the other again. But it was God’s plan that they be together, and through interesting circumstances (and a helpful German friend!), they finally decided to be together and were married September 19, 1992 in Kenai. Your hosts love living in Alaska with their little ones, and appreciate the great outdoor opportunities that abound in the Seward area. Binget has a history in mountain climbing and has extensive knowledge of the trails and mountains in and around Seward. If you love to hike, bike, run the trails, or climb some of the local peaks…she can point you in the right direction! Stefan’s big love is hunting and fishing. He will be able to tell you the right lake or river for Dolly Varden, Rainbows, and Grayling...and he may even share his secrets about what the halibut and salmon are biting in Resurrection Bay ! They are excited to be able to share their outdoor experiences with you.

Beautiful, Relaxing and Wonderful

I truly can't say enough about this wonderful place. If we could have moved into this cabin, we probably would have. We were greeted with amazing cookies and a welcoming note, and the cabin was so much more than we could have imagined. We really looked forward to spending time on the porch, looking at the fabulous view of the mountains, after our full days of activity. Binget was a kind and gracious host. We will definitely stay at Annika's when we return to Seward! Our stay here was one of the reasons we're so eager to get back to Alaska.

Annika's is small; however, it is thoughtfully designed and the detailing is lovely. The queen sized bed is excellent and the twins in the loft are very nice. We were blessed with great weather most of the time and were able to have the slider on the porch open. On a couple of chilly mornings, the gas "wood" stove warmed it up quickly.
The owners are great hosts and wonderful people. We were welcomed with warm cookies and sent off on an all day excursion with homemade granola cookies. Delicious!
Annika's provides soaps, shampoo, hair dryer, coffee and a coffee maker. There is also an electric kettle.
One of the marvelous things about this property is that there is absolutely no road noise. Birds may chatter, but not people or cars.

We had only stayed in a cabin one time before this. We usually stay in hotels but there are no Hilton properties in this area so we gave this a try. We all LOVED it! It was a tiny cabin in the backyard of a family. The kids slept in a loft in two twins above our queen. There was a bathroom and a kitchen, stocked bookshelves, a futon and a little kitchen table. The decor and furnishing were perfect for the cabin and everything was clean and efficient. We did not feel cramped at all, just warm and cozy. Our only regret was that we got there too late to meet the family and play in the play area! We would love to stay there again if we ever get the opportunity to return to that amazing area!

My husband and I decided to visit Seward during my Mom's visit from Michigan What a perfect little cabin just outside the city of Seward. The cabin's pictures are exactly what you will find! The beds were VERY comfortable ( loved the loft!!).... There were fresh baked cookies and fresh wild flowers upon our arrival. So many nice little touches that made such a wonderful stay! The cabin was extremely clean and fully equipped to make our own meals. The owners are very friendly and knowledgable about the area.

Driving distance to Exit glacier, the town of seward and all of the cruise/kayak excursions!

This will definitely be on our "return to" list!
