About the Property
CLOSE TO EVERYTHING INCLUDING FREE SHUTTLE BUS NEARBY!
Greetings from the Alaskan Riviera! Seward is the playground for Alaskans and the World. This vacation home is constructed of tongue and grooved mature red cedar with tall ceilings throughout, and many pieces of Alaskan artwork.
We are walking distance to the harbor, grocery and liquor stores, restaurants and bars, Seward's Visitor Center/Chamber, and the Free Seward Shuttle Bus.
Additional amenities includes free pick-up and delivery from the Seward airport, Seward bus charter, Alaskan Rail Road terminal, or the cruise ship dock.
This property has an additional cabin in the back; one side is a living room, and the other is a six (6) persons cedar sauna. Nothing better after a day of halibut or salmon fishing, hiking, or zip lining through the mountains than a hot sauna.
Exit Glacier, located on the edge of the massive Harding Ice Field is fifteen minutes from Seward driving. Exit Glacier Guides in Seward can provide glacier hikes for most abilities. Take a marine wildlife cruise with Major Marine Tours or Kenai Fjord Tours. Both provide once in a lifetime fun during your adventure.
Kenai Fjords National Park is just a couple of miles south of Seward. Hiking trails surround the Resurrection Bay area. Please research Seward's Great Race! The Mount Marathon Race is the second oldest race in the country! Imagine racing up and down a 3,022 foot mountain through ice, mud, vines, brown bear country and mountain scree in less than an hour! More than thirty-thousand people come from all over the world on the Fourth of July to witness and participate this spectacle.

About the owner: Diane has successfully worked in major commercial and residential property development and nursing before taking over as project manager for developing this unique Seward vacation rental. It is my goal to provide the very best Seward, Alaska can offer its visitors. My goal is provide a vacation home experience that offers an adventure you will never forget. Owners live quietly on-site below in the flat.
Why the Owner Chose Jesse Lee Heights (Seward, AK, USA):
Location, location, location is reason number one for choosing Great Bear. Great Bear Vacation Rental is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in town yet is within walking distance to everything in Seward. Decorated with many Alaskan pieces of art. This vacation home has six BICYCLES included, no extra fee. Cabin with Dry Cedar Sauna is also a feature of this property, also in the cabin is an extra family room, that is near the fire pit.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The great room has tall eighteen (18') foot ceilings and a beautiful western-themed chandelier. It also offers a high-end wood pellet stove to keep you cozy day and night no matter the weather. All bedrooms have high ceilings, unique and artistic decoration, very comfortable bedding, many pillows, electric blankets, AND the necessary thermal blackout-blinds. Everything is fresh and clean. If you like to cook outside, we provide a large BBQ grill for your convenience. For long summer evenings enjoy the fire pit area out back. The seasoned wood pile is tall and ready to burn.
