About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Located in the original 1913 Seward town site. Charming and quaint, it has everything you want from a Alaska summer vacation rental.

After a full day of sightseeing, touring, fishing, hiking and shopping, you can relax in our comfortable and fully appointed home-like setting.

Conveniently located in downtown Seward you are steps away from why you came to our historic and exciting town.

Step out our front door for a breathtaking view of Resurrection Bay, walk to the Sea life center for an afternoon of discovery, or visit Brown and Hawkins for home made Gelato and fabulous fudge.

If you like to walk, follow the waterfront towards the Marina or stroll towards Lowell Point for an afternoon of Kayaking or a try at Catching a King or Silver Salmon at the nearby Waterfall.

For those who like to get the kids out of the house and relax, send them to the local library, skate park or movie theater, all within walking distance.

If you prefer to read and relax, sit on the back deck or settle into a comfortable chair and enjoy a book. Games and videos available for the kids.


For Dinner, invite friends and cook dinner on our back deck BBQ or in the fully appointed kitchen. We have what you need from pots, pans, to plates and utensils and a Gas BBQ out back.

Fresh linens await you upon arrival and there is no cleanup required when you leave-Just no dirty dishes, please.

We hope you enjoy our home away from home, it is a paradise retreat we are proud to share!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Tanguy Relaxing in Anchorage, wishing he was at his Seward House listening to the seagulls and watching Bald Eagles.

Why the Owner Chose Seward, AK, USA:
My family and I really enjoyed the serenity and majestic beauty of resurrection bay as well as the friendly people, fishing and wildlife. The cottage has an unexplainable, simple charm that makes it difficult to leave. Worries melt away while you enjoy yourself with friends and loved ones. Board games, anyone?

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Walking distance to everything downtown. Quiet, convenient location in a charming seaside home. Home has a warm, historic feel without being formal.
