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.
The kitchen is fully equipped and will be stocked with coffee, assorted teas and condiments. We will provide a free continental breakfast for the morning of the 1st day of your stay!
A front deck invites guests to enjoy Alaska's splendor with views of Tiehacker Mountain and the great northwestern forest, as well as the cultivated grounds and gardens that surround the house.
A gas grill is available for your cooking pleasure.
Cottonwood Corner will be cleaned and prepared with luxury linens between guests.

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.
We are a group of 3 couples from Hong Kong and staying with this proper for 3 nights. It is a clean and well maintained guesthouse. The owner is very helpful and nice. They come to answer our question in a rainy evening . Everything that a normal guesthouse should provide, this property over and above. All over review is covered by one word " Value Added"
They have a dog namely Tite , very adorable he comes to welcome and say goodbye to us. This give us a remarkable memory during the stay there.
The property is clean and tidy well maintained.
Again would like to express our sincere thanks to the Turnbull Family for accommodating our group.
We will come back in the next future and hope Turnbull will accept our booking.
Cottonwood Corner was everything we could have asked for to start our family Alaska vacation. The gardens were beautiful. Easy drive in to downtown Seward. Wonderful breakfast provided for our first day. Everything was clean, comfortable, and welcoming. We had everything we needed to cook breakfast and dinner and grill out. We loved roasting marshmallows around the fire pit on our first night when the weather was warm and beautiful, and then used the indoor fire the next day to warm up after a rainy hike to Exit Glacier. Kate stopped by to check on us to make sure we had what we needed and even went out of her way to mail my husband his shoes that he had mistakenly left behind. Wonderful hosts. Wonderful home. Highly recommend!
We enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Cottonwood Corner Guest House. The location is close to Seward yet in a quiet wooded neighborhood. Don't let the junk yard you must drive by to get there discourage you. Look the other way and soon you'll be in an area of quaint homes and guest houses. Everything was as advertised except the bathrooms. The description says 1.5+ baths so I expected only a toilet and vanity in the half bath. Instead, there are two full baths, one with a tub shower and one with a shower only - 2 full baths in my view.
we enjoyed the stay at cottonwood corner guest house. The house was clean and plenty of room for our large group. Craig and Kate Turnbull were great hosts and made us feel so welcome. will definitely book with them again.
This property is a special kind of warm and welcoming house that makes you want to call it home. I would love to live next door to Kate Craig and Tillie on this beautiful corner lot. We enjoyed the fire pit, the wood burner and the amenities that we waiting for us on arrival (especially the creme cheese and salmon spread for me). The gardens are a testament to the care this property receives and abundance of fresh veggies is welcome addition to any meal.
We are looking forward to our next visit.
