Seward house description

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.



Housekeeping Policy
Cottonwood Corner will be cleaned between guests. All linens will be exchanged (includes mattress covers, pillow covers, blankets, & quilts) as the house is prepared for your arrival .

No housekeeping services will be provided during your stay. We will provide extra linens for guests staying more than three days.

While we hope that you will be able to take advantage of the wonderful fishing Seward has to offer, we do not allow fish cleaning at Cottonwood Corner. We can recommend a full service processor in town (packaging & mailing).

Here at Cottonwood Corner, we like to balance privacy with hospitality. We will assure your stay is comfortable and will be available to chat and tell an Alaskan story or two.

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: 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.

                      Why the Owner Chose Seward:
                      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.
