Seward cottage description

Built in 1920 but recently remodeled, Sea Star Cottage is a charming family get away in historic downtown Seward, Alaska. The cottage is ideally located within walking distance to shops, restaurants, galleries, and the Alaska SeaLife center. Marine wildlife tours and fishing charters depart from the boat harbor less than a mile away. The view from the living room is of Resurrection Bay and the mountains beyond. Behind the cottage, watch hikers make their way up the rugged Mount Marathon trail. Cottage guests will enjoy lovely views, a fully-equipped, updated kitchen, and two cozy bedrooms with restored original hardwood floors. The master bedroom is equipped with a queen bed and walk-in closet. The second bedroom has a bunk bed with a full sized lower bed and a twin on top. There is a pull-out sleeper in the living area to accommodate extra guests. A dining table seating six provides a great place to enjoy meals with a view.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Alaska has been our home for 15 years. We enjoy the mountains, the water and small town life which is why we love Seward.

                  Why the Owner Chose Seward:
                  The Sea Star Cottage is one of Seward's original homes, built in 1920 and renovated in 2012. Seward is a place where the mountains, the water and history all come together. Sea Star allows us to share the beauty of Seward with all who visit.
