We'd like to introduce ourselves and tell you more about all the things there are to do in the Seward area.
We, Dan and Lori, grew up in small town South Dakota. Young and ready for adventure, we moved to Alaska in 1977 to teach in the Aleutian Islands.
Then in 1987 and two children later, the oil prices fell, and we lost our teaching jobs. Back to South Dakota for the next fourteen years to finish raising our children and be around our families.
In 2001, teaching positions opened up in Seward, Alaska, and here we are back in the state that we love. We have met many wonderful people who have enriched our lives not only in Alaska, but also through our travels in other countries.
We know what it is to be far from our home and meet people whom we quickly learn to call friends. Come stay with us and learn first hand about Alaskan hospitality with warm bear hugs at Bear Ridge Bed and Breakfast.
B&B is no longer open. purchased this house in 2007
My husband and I love Alaska. Seward offers the grandeur of the mountains and the sounds of the ocean. How can anyone go wrong with that? We bought our property first as our home. Then we decided to run a Bed and Breakfast from that home. We count ourselves lucky to be able to live and teach where we do plus have the added benefit of getting to know people from all around the world through our B & B.
I love to bake, but since my husband and I are in our 50s, we do not need all of those baked-good calories. Running a B & B allows me to have my fix of baking rolls for breakfast or cookies for evening snacks, but keeps me from eating all of those calories.
One of my favorite 'things' to do after the hot rolls or coffee cake is out of the oven is to fix a really good espresso and head out to the hot tub to sip cofee and eat a bit of heaven while looking at Resurrection Bay. And, if I don't get a hot tub in the morning, I can always pour myself a glass of wine in the evening and sit in the hot tub or on the deck to watch the fishing boats come into the harbor. Remember, in the summer, the sunlight lasts until well after midnight.
