Seward bed and breakfast description

The Gammy Bird Inn sits on the cliffside just above the lagoon near the Seward Small Boat Harbor. Its panoramic views will keep guests amazed with watching wildlife, a busy harbor or the more serene sights of Resurrection Bay and the surrounding mountains of the fjords.

The B&B is on the ground floor of this three story home, and has its own entrance. It is a short walk to the harbor or Seward's historic downtown. Hiking is just outside the front door, with easy access to the Two Lakes system.

We provide breakfast in your private suite at your convenience each morning. A great way to start your day of adventure in Seward whether sailing, hiking, whale watching, fishing or any of the many other opportunities.

You will want to return again and again to the Gammy Bird Inn!

Keywords: Private suite with own entrance, walking distance to harbor and town, ground floor, in a quiet cul-de-sac, near hiking trails

          • Gammy Bird Inn guests are encouraged to relax on the cliff above the Seward Small Boat Harbor and enjoy the vistas of Resurrection Bay and the surrounding snow-capped mountains. While viewing the spectacular scenery from an apartment fit for any ship's captain, guests will find total comfort after a day of sailing, fishing, hiking or any other of Seward's many adventures. You may see a Bald Eagle fly by your window so closely that you will make eye contact! Watch the salmon swimming in the lagoon just below the cliff, and even spot black bear in the forest behind the house. See a unique sunset with the alpenglow on the mountains peaks in the east, and in the morning, awake to the sun coming over Mt. Alice as it lights up the head of Resurrection Bay. ...moreless
