Property description

Vintage turn of the century home located close to old town Seward and the Alaska SeaLife Center. Our home is nestled on the shores of Resurrection Bay at the head of the fjord that once bustled as a gateway to Alaska's interior gold country. Looking west to the mountains or south out the bay our cozy 2 bedroom home sits in a quiet area just off the original downtown, close to the harbor, walking trails along the coast, and access to Seward's famous Mt. Marathon.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We have lived in Alaska for 33 years. Nine years ago we moved from Anchorage to Seward to enjoy the slower paced life to raise our three children. We have had two prior VRBOs that are now long term rentals. This summer we are offering our two bedroom Cozy Cottage for your summer vacation. We are here to make your Alaska vacation or your weekend get away the most relaxing and enjoyable. Let the memories begin! Seward has beautiful tranquil scenery from every point of the compass. Looking south out Resurrection Bay to the outer islands, to the north along the mountain ridges with Mt. Marathon, to the east up Bear Mountain, and enjoying an early morning sunrise over Mt Alice, all of which can be seen from our cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Seward, AK, USA:
The home was built in the heady days of the gold rush and railroad construction and is a small two bedroom home with full kitchen, breakfast nook, dining room, living room, and bathroom on the main floor. It is walking distance to restaurants, shops, pubs, beautiful walking trails, the Alaska SeaLife Center, and of course the small boat harbor. Sit back in the living room and take in the views, have coffee in the entry sun room or enjoy a barbeque on the back deck.
