Sporting a fun Alaskan bush pilot theme, the Taildragger Inn sits nestled at the base of the Mt. Marathon. This one bedroom apartment is ideally located within walking distance of downtown Seward and the boat harbor. Hiking trails are just around the corner, including the renowned "runner's trail" up Mt. Marathon - Although connected to the main house, the apartment uses a separate entrance and does not share space with the owners, affording you privacy. The apartment is compact, yet meets all of your needs with a full kitchen, 3/4 bathroom, and bed space for four. After a long day adventuring around the Seward area, you can relax on the couch and enjoy a movie on Netflix or take in the long Alaskan daylight outside around the fire pit.

About your hosts: Jill first came to Alaska from the Pacific Northwest as an 18 year old to work seasonally in the canneries during the summertime, experiencing different areas of the state before permanently moving to Seward in 1990. Ronn arrived in the last frontier in the mid 1990s to take a job teaching in the village of Naknek and soon realized his boyhood dream of becoming a pilot: a year later, he moved to Seward. The two met years later, marrying in 2007. They raised four children in the town and are looking forward to adventures with grandchildren soon. Jill and Ronn enjoy the outdoors and spend much of their free time there - hiking, camping, biking, canoeing, skiing, ice skating or just resting on the deck in the summer. In addition, they have two enthusiastic and energetic canine children - Dax and Hank - who can often be seen playfully running alongside their people. Jill and Ronn also love to travel and meet new people, and share their town with others. Over the years they have hosted five foreign exchange students and quite a few random travelers. They now look forward to opening their home up to others and continuing with the tradition of sharing their town.

Great Vacation in Seward
My parents absolutely loves this rental! It was located right close to everything in town and had everything that they needed for a comfortable stay! The host was great, everything was very clean and well organized, and it was a beautiful space! Highly recommended!
Very adequate place to stay.
Great place. Great hosts. Well equipped. Good location in Seward. Rates number one out of seven VRBO stay places for us in Alaska.
Comfortable, quiet. Nice owner. Convenient.
Enjoyed our 2 night stay while fishing and exploring Seward. Jill, the owner was very acommadating. Small, but with all a couple would need. Best for a couple, because of sleeping arrangement. Nice bath and kitchen. Outdoor grill and screened porch were nice.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Taildragger Inn. The location was perfect. The Bush pilot decor was very cool, and the apartment was spotless. Jill greeted us upon arrival and was so nice and helpful. Our only issue was that we didn’t plan more time in this awesome town. The kitchen was stocked with everything you would need including complimentary water bottles and Alaskan Beers. You won’t be disappointed picking this place for your stay in Seward.
Perfect retreat in Seward!
The location was fantastic - close to everything but very quiet neighborhood. Jill has thought of everything for this cute little rental. Everything you need in the kitchen, including a Keurig to make your coffee before leaving for an early fishing trip. I highly recommend this location!
Great space to stay while enjoying Seward.
This property is in a great location. It was very clean, well stocked, and set up perfect for a small family traveling in Seward. I would highly recommend it.
