Overview

Kenai Peninsula 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. In 2017, our new laundry room with washer / dryer will be ready for you to use and enjoy! 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.

For the remaining 2016 season, guests will need to use the laundromat on 3rd Avenue in downtown Seward.

Great house. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 and this house was perfect. The house is impeccable. There was plenty of room for everyone - 3 full bathrooms, which was key for 5 women. Nice, big kitchen. Great hot tub out front!

Wendy, the owner, went out of her way to help us with excursion reservations. Thank you so much! Hoping to return soon. And, if I do, I will stay at Bear Paw.

Would definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

No negatives to report about this property. Owners were responsive during the stay as well as beforehand. The cabin was wonderful...comfortable, well-stocked, roomy. Hot tub, big deck, and a couple of friendly dogs were also nice bonuses. The setting is in the trees and provides peace and quiet. Would love to stay here again. Thanks Wendy!

Beautiful log cabin tucked in quiet wooded neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Our party had a great stay at this property. It's located away from town and cruise traffic, but close enough to all there is to do. Wendy and Dave were hosts - close enough to help with questions, but we also felt we were alone to have our fun.

Thanks for helping make our Alaskan vacation great!

Bear Paw Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Bear Paw Lodge is a beautiful, comfortable, peaceful home that our family loved staying in during our 3 day visit to Seward. There were fresh chocolate chip cookies waiting for us on our arrival! We had so much space and all the extras in the kitchen were great! The beds were so comfortable after adventures of kayaking and ice hiking. Having a hot tub is a plus! Thank you Wendy and Dave, you truly made our Seward trip perfect!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six loved staying in this beautiful home. Everything was perfect! Best hosts ever! We loved the personalized touches, such as Wendy's delicious chocolate chip cookies and the family photographs. Wendy and Dave's dogs were an added bonus! We highly recommend Bear Paw Lodge and will be back as soon as we can!
