Overview

About the property

Large Historic Home Near Downtown!

The Brownell Homestead Inn, established in 2017, offers guests premium accommodations in one of Seward's oldest residences. Located on First Avenue close to downtown, this home was built in 1903 and is known locally as the Brownell Homestead. It was also one of the main settings for the movie Sugar Mountain which was filmed in Seward in 2014. Our Inn features three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the main level, along side an eat-in kitchen and large family room. The spacious kitchen is outfitted with everything you'll need to prepare meals for your whole group. A concrete patio on the front of the home offers a perfect spot to relax in the sun and barbecue on summer evenings. Guests will enjoy beautifully preserved historic details throughout the home including hardwood floors and stately wooden beams that hint at the home's original log cabin facade. A master suite comprises the whole upper level of the home, where the bedroom offers views of Resurrection Bay.

Nestled on a large lot with mature trees, this property has a very private feel, while still within walking distance to historic downtown Seward, the waterfront park and the Alaska SeaLife Center. Brownell Homestead Inn is your group's perfect home base for your visit to Seward!

Doug Wight, the owner of Brownell Homestead Inn, is an avid mountain runner and a proud sponsor of Seward's famous annual Mount Marathon footrace. Racers, including Doug himself, race right past the Homestead on their ascent and descent of the mountain each Fourth of July.

The master suite features a queen size bed and twin-size day bed and each of the bedrooms on the main level has a queen bed.

Lovely home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our party of 5 adults to stay in Seward. The house itself is beautiful and the views are spectacular. We had plenty of room to hang out, the kitchen was well equipped and clean. They even provided a shoe dryer in the front entrance. Highly recommend!

It was great!!!

  • 5 of 5

We ha a wonderful time at the Brownell Homestead. It was clean and had many of the extras that you don't think of for the kitchen when you are at the store away from home. It was great for larger parties. It has a big kitchen and family room area. It also had 3 plus bedrooms. We loved Seward and our stay at the Brownell house. Thanks for your hospitality!!

Well kept house with old world charm!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great old house. It is very spacious, comfortable, well kept, and well decorated. We had a great time. But just an FYI...there are requests to not even cook fish inside the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review! We provided the grill outside for cooking fish so that there are no fishy odors in the house for the next guests. Thank you.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 and this location was perfect. the rooms were all very nice and the living room is very inviting. we would all sit in there and look at the mountains as we told the stories of what we did that day. It is walking distance to everything in town. We really enjoyed it and hope to stay here again in the future
