Our location can't be beat and our amenities are top notch. You can start your day taking in the fantastic view of the fjord from the breakfast nooks. Relax with a drink in your deck chairs on the front decks as you watch the ships set sail in Resurrection Bay. The Seward House is sure to enhance your Alaskan experience and provide real value in your lodging needs.

Downstairs is a clean, comfortable three bedroom, two bath vacation rental. There are 4 beds in all. This unit comfortably sleeps 6-7. There is a master bedroom with an attached bath that has a queen and a twin. Down a short hallway you’ll find two rooms that share a bathroom. One room has a queen and the other has a full.

The large well-equipped kitchen makes cooking the catch of the day a breeze, or use our Kamado charcoal grill. Most guests make use of our free washer and dryer to freshen up and use our free WI-FI to send out fabulous vacation pics. During the winter this unit rents out at $160 per night and sleeps 7.

During the summer both halves of the duplex rent together meaning we can accommodate groups of up to 12 or 13. The newly remodeled upstairs space offers 2 bedroom/2 bath with an additional sleeping space and futon in the open loft. A full kitchen, laundry and WI-FI round out the amenities. The view from the upstairs unit is amazing! This upstairs space sleeps 6 comfortably. The master has an attached bathroom and has a queen bed. The bedroom on the top floor of the house has a full sized bed. There is an open loft on the top floor that is equipped with a Klik-Klak sleeper futon. The summer rate for the whole house is $515 per night plus tax.

Our capacity maxes out at 12-13 occupants total. There are many rentals within walking distance if your group exceeds 13. We are unable to accommodate RV parking in our parking area. There is a lovely oceanside camping area along the waterfront just a block in front of the house. Thanks for remembering that amenities (WIFI, shower, laundry, etc) are for paying rental occupants only. Thank you also for honoring our no pet policy.

Our central location with offstreet parking spaces for your boat and/or vehicle (no RVs) makes for a great home base as you explore our community. Walk a block toward the ocean and hit the bike path that leads to the harbor in one direction and The SeaLife Center in the other. Three blocks to the west of us is the trailhead for Mount Marathon. You can leave the front door and hike directly up either the Marathon Bowl or the Race Trail!

We are family friendly at The Seward House. There is a pack and play in the unit as well as a high chair. There are not one, but TWO playgrounds within a block and a half!

When it's not otherwise occupied(late August-May-low season) we live onsite in the other half of the duplex, so please feel free to stop by for a cup of sugar and a tall Alaskan tale!
