Cottonwood Corner is two acres of beautiful natural and cultivated gardens Our guest house is located on the sunny side where we grow most of our vegetables and herbs amongst beds of native and perennial plants. Our home is a short walk through a natural aviary that attracts several species of birds year round. Our guests can relax on a bench in one of the quiet pocket gardens and enjoy our many resident birds taking advantage of the feeders located throughout the gardens.
The Guest House is a three bedroom, 1.5+bath home located in a rural neighborhood just outside of the Seward city limits. It is a 5 minute drive or twenty minute bike ride to the center of town.
The living room, dining room, kitchen, one bedroom (queen) and a bath with a shower is located on the 1st floor. The second floor has two bedrooms (1queen, 1 king) with a full bath between.

In 1985 Craig joined his father, Jack , on a trip to Alaska to visit the past. During World War II, while serving in the United State Army, Jack had been stationed at Fort McGilvary on Caines Head located at the mouth of Resurrection Bay. He was anxious to share his memories of that time with his oldest son. Caines Head is now part of the Alaska State Park System and is accessible by boat. Maintained trails allow visitors to explore what is left of the old army fort.
Jack traveled a second time to Seward, this time with our whole family...what a trip! Our dream was born and 1990 found us selling our Southern California home, packing all of our belongings in a U-Haul truck and setting out for the Last Frontier. Three years later, Jack joined us and together we built the cabin that is now Cottonwood Corner Guest House.
We have lived in Seward for 23 years and are still in awe of the pristine beauty that surrounds us. We want to share it with you.
Cottonwood Corner Guest House is located in a quiet rural neighborhood. Our grounds are beautiful and we enjoy spending time outside. There are also special little treasures that can be found just taking a walk around the block. The Guest House is a short walk from Salmon Creek, a salmon spawning creek; a walk up the hill leads you to some of the best blueberry pickings in town; exploring the meadow nearby you will find bog rosemary, Alaska violets, sundews (Alaska's carnivorous plants), and so much more. The forest is full of wonder.
Wild animals do roam through the neighborhood, so we ask that you always stay aware.
Our location is a birder's paradise. Right outside your window you will be treated to a view of our resident chickadees, nuthatches, woodpeckers, pine grosbeaks, juncos, siskins, and more!
Craig and I have enjoyed feeding the birds and gardening for many years. We have lovely perennial beds and include many native species amongst our cultivars. We also plant vegetables and herbs in the raised beds outside the Guest House. Our summer is short, but our days are long and the garden beds fill in quickly.
Cottonwood Corner guest house was a wonderful home base for our extended family of seven. Very comfortable in every way and we enjoyed sitting by the fire in the evenings. The children played in the large yard and we all enjoyed the birds, flowers and fresh veggies from the garden boxes. Of course, Tillie was a bonus! Seward is great for so many outdoor activities. We did some great hikes, fishing and a day cruise. It was nice to come "home" after a busy day to cook and relax. Thank you for a happy and memorable stay!
Cottonwood Corner is a very comfortable, attractive house surrounded by a wonderful garden, which attracts a variety of beautiful birds. It is close to downtown Seward, Exit Glacier and many other interesting places to visit. We brought our large brood of children, ages ranging from 4 to 18, and they all enjoyed themselves, slept well in the accommodations and were sad to leave. We would recommend this house to anyone!
We have stayed at a lot of VRBO homes over the years but the Cottonwood Corner Guest House is the crown jewel of VRBO. The listing description was accurate but it did not capture how great the place really is, less than ten minutes to town but felt like it was much further away. Sitting on the porch, balcony or by the fire pit really puts you in touch with nature. The property is very well maintained and extremely clean. If you really need to work while staying here have not fear because the wireless internet is smoking hot and dependable. It performed flawlessly for the eight days we were there. The owners are wonderful fun loving people that should have their own reality TV show. They were very helpful in answering our 1000 questions and providing recommendations on the restaurants and attractions in the surrounding area. The halibut and salmon fishing was fantastic and there are a lot of boats to chose from. Try more that one as all the operators are great people and go out to their way to ensure you have a great time. We already have reservations for next year, just a week later. Try this place. It will be one of the best times of your life.
We absolutely LOVED staying in this house!!! We could not recommend it more highly!
From the warm welcome, to the unexpected homemade goodies inside, to the tidy appearance inside, great beds and sheets!, birds flying around the feeders, gardens right outside....all these wonderful warm touches made our stay special. The house is in a great location between town and the national park...and there's a garage.
We have rented many great houses over the years but have never had the excellent personal touches that made it an instant home. The 'goodie' basket made our day. We all loved your salmon dip. The yogurt and bagels made for a great first morning breakfast. The house was perfect with our family (2 adults and 3 kids) upstairs and my mom down stairs. Very close to everything in Seward area. You have beautiful gardens and we really enjoyed the fresh lettuce. Give our love to Tilly (the dog). Thanks again for a fantastic getway!
We stayed at Cottonwood corner guesthouse for 5 nights. The house was exceptionally clean and well kept. There were 6 adults and 4 children and the house was roomy enough for everyone. We were able to cook our own meals and have fresh vegetables from garden just outside The owners were friendly and very helpful. The kids loved playing outside with their dog. This was everyone's first trip to Alaska. Thank you helping to make it memorable.
