Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9) With a full laundry.

My wife Jennifer and I chose this spot on Trail River to raise our children because of its incredible beauty. Trail River Gardens is located just 20 min from Seward in the heart of the Chugach mountains on beautiful Trail River. From our deck the river is just 50 feet away with the majestic Mount Madison as a back drop. There are lakes above and below us with mountains on all sides. You can walk to hiking trails to even more mountain lakes. If you like to hike and watch birds and other wildlife, then you will love it here at Trail River gardens.

Perfect River Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights in August, and absolutely loved this home on the river! Three bedrooms with THREE full bathrooms, comfortable beds, amazing deck, and all essential appliances you need in the kitchen. This cottage was perfect for us with our plans to fish out of Seward and Cooper Landing - we were located directly in the middle of both towns! We will be back!!

Serene hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 6 had plenty of space here: 3 bedrooms each with its own full bath. Located on a beautiful river 20 minutes outside of Seward, you definitely feel away from it all, but close enough to enjoy all that Seward has to offer. The hosts are beyond gracious and helpful! It was a perfect home base for our Seward adventures.

Perfect location, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was the perfect location for our family of 8 adults. The cabin is a short drive to Seward, about 25 min and a great launch point for our daily outings. We enjoyed the view of the river, the fire pit and appreciated the washer and dryer and

the 3 full bathrooms ( one in each bedroom).

Russ and Jan -‘thanks for being such great hosts.

Greeted by a beautiful vase of incredible wildflowers

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful river view. Very convenient home base for exploring the Kenai peninsula. This home worked out really well for our extended family. Each family had our own bedroom/bathroom (there are 3). We hung out around the kitchen table. There's a firepit outside for gathering as well, though it rained more than usual so we did not end up using that. Be sure to check out Jennifer's Ranting Raven gallery in Seward!
