About Wendy Doughty
We've lived in Seward since 2002, and absolutely love the area and the people! We owned and operated Kayak Adventures Worldwide through the summer 2014 season, and during those years Bear Paw Lodge was run as a B & B. It was a great lodging option for our clients, and others traveling to the area. Now that we've transitioned away from running Kayak Adventures, we've turned our log home into a vacation rental. One of our favorite parts of traveling is meeting all the wonderful people. By living on the property and running the lodge, we're able to bring that aspect of travel right to our own back yard! It's such a pleasure to meet the people who stay here, and to assist them in maximizing their time in Seward. We love the outdoors... and whenever we're not working on projects around the house, you can find us hiking, biking, running, fishing, kayaking, or even strumming our instruments around a campfire. Life is good in Seward, and we hope to share that with you!!
Wendy Doughty purchased this House in 2007
Why Wendy Doughty chose Seward
We were both originally drawn to Seward for the kayaking and the lifestyle. Landing at Kayak Adventures in 2002, we quickly realized how much we loved sharing this backyard with others. That winter we purchased the business, and decided to make Seward our home. We lived in the tiny kayak shop for five summers... sharing the space with many guides, customers, dogs, etc. In 2007, we decided it was time to find our own space. And so we found this log home! It needed lots of work, but was well-built and spoke to us immediately. In June 2007, we moved in and began running it as a B & B.
What makes this House unique
Come stay at the lodge, and in an instant you'll know why we purchased this log home. The quality and beauty of construction, the feeling of warmth and home, the space and light, the deck and hot tub, the location... the list goes on and on. We knew this was the property for us the minute we walked through the door in 2007. We bought the house with the intention of sharing it with others, and it's truly perfect for traveling groups.

Deliciosamente encantadora la cabaña.
desde el primer instante nos sentimos como en casa, el recibimiento, el ambiente, la cabaña muy limpia y equipada, no le faltó nada. Lo que nos faltó a nosotros fué tiempo. Super recomendada.
Thank you so much for leaving such a kind review! We loved meeting you all and having you stay at the house this summer, and we're so happy to hear that it was such a great spot for your group. Come back and see us again one day!

What a great custom log home for our stay in Seward!!!
Located just a few miles from Seward, we knew we were home when we found a plate of cookies waiting for us on the kitchen table when we arrived. This home and the owners are spectacular. We enjoyed the book detailing the history of the home and the construction process of turning into the home it is today. We were a party of 8, celebrating parent's 60th anniversary, and everyone had plenty of room. The kitchen was well stocked with condiments and spices and the showers were supplied with soap, shampoo and conditioner. The laundry room was fantastic with a great washing machine and dryer for quest use and there is a large folding table. Wendy and Dave live on the property but you won't even know they are there unless you see them outside their home. The check in and check out process was easy and the house is exactly as described. The photos are accurate but don't to justice to this home, it is much greater and appreciated when viewed in person. You will not be disappointed with your stay at the Bear Paw Lodge so book today. Thanks Wendy and Dave!!!
It was such a pleasure to have you and your family stay with us! We loved meeting you all and getting to know you, and it's wonderful to hear that your time in Seward - and at our house - was all you hoped it would be. We appreciate you taking the time to post such a kind review, and definitely hope you all will return one day!

Great Cabin, Great Hosts, Perfect Stay
We just finished a 4 night stay at Bear Paw lodge in Seward with our family of 9.
This a great property that is tucked in the trees about 2 miles from town. The location was perfect and quiet and, better yet,every detail to make your stay comfortable was thought of. It is obvious that this cabin was a labor of love. We found lots of extras like shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, spices and condiments, paper towels, even cookies on arrival! There is lots of space for everyone to spread out. The hot tub was a perfect way to spend the evening. Often times I hesitate to rent with owners who live on-sight. However, Wendy was perfect and it was actually nice to have someone that knows the area and keeps such a good watch on everything. Having three FULL baths was a big plus for our large group. Also, the owners just finished the new laundry room and it was beautiful and perfect for our stay. This is a great rental in Seward!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thorough, thoughtful, and kind review! We're so glad to hear you enjoyed your time in our house and thank you for noticing all of the amenities, etc! We absolutely loved meeting you all and having you here... and we hope that one day you'll come our way again!
