Located on the shores of Resurrection Bay and the Gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park, Seward is one of Alaska's most beautiful and scenic small towns. There is an abundance of recreational activities including Charter fishing for Halibut, Salmon, Lingcod and rockfish, wildlife cruises into Kenai Fjords National Park, hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, flightseeing by fixed wing airplane or helicopter, dog sled rides and sailing. Historic downtown Seward has many shops, restaurants, the Seward Museum and Alaska SeaLife Center.

ReviewsWrite a review
The photos do not do this place justice...what a great choice we made to rent this home instead of taking the cruise/rail tour. Things the photos do NOT tell you- the beds are comfortable, the towels are soft and plentiful, the clean fresh smell of the house adds tot he charm, and the extra touches make life easy (TP, paper towels, foil, soap, etc all provided) There is a Safeway in town with a liquor store attached so it is no problem to get stocked up. Prices in Seward for groceries are much mroe expensive than in the lower 48, but considering everything is imported it makes sense. The house listing says "subdivision" but if you come from a suburban area it is not like a subdivision you may be familiar with! We live in a rural area, so we were very pleased with the comfort of having homes relatively nearby but the feel of being isolated. All appliances seem to be new and work great. The only item I would add to the kitchen is a larger frying pan. So many places we've stayed do not have clocks in the bedrooms, but this one does. We also appreciated the variety of pamphlets and restaurant menus available. This place is a WINNER!

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I have been in Alaska for 16 years and have worked in the tourism industry the entire time. I have lived in various parts of the state so can share a lot of information and knowledge about different areas of the state. I love to be outdoors whether it is fishing, hunting, hiking, ATV riding or just sitting outside and watching the wildlife. I have recently taken up archery.
Why the Owner Chose Seward:
I came to Seward for work and fell in love with the mountains, ocean and scenery around Seward. After living in different areas of Alaska- I found that Seward has just about everything.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property offers the peace and quiet of a country subdivision. I enjoy being able to get out and walk around the block and just enjoy being outdoors. Often times we have seen moose, bears, porcupines, squirrels and a variety of birds in the area. The home has an open floor plan so it feels warm and spacious.
