About Jasmine Van Driessche
Deo's Alaskan Cabin... Is a dream come true for owners Jared & Jasmine Van Driessche. Both grew up in this small town of Seward, Alaska, married in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California and together started traveling the world, one of their greatest passions! Although they visited many places full of new flavors, culture, languages & terrain, they found themselves sharing stories of Alaska's beauty, adventures and soon longed to share their home with others. It was only in 2012 that a small city in Uganda would soon become a place they would come to love. After a dear friend of theirs recommended they volunteer at Keirungi Children's Village in Kabale, Uganda they wasted no time immersing themselves in the local culture & language that embodied this small orphanage and it's surroundings. Now, those children and all of Keirungi's staff have become family to Jared & Jasmine and there was no doubt they would combine two places on opposite ends of the world to create a warm space to be shared by many travelers alike. Thus, Deo's Alaskan Cabin was born! But, who is Deo? He is a sweet little boy that stole Jasmine's heart during their first trip. As they watched him grow, his sad story started to fade into the past & a cheeky boy, full of personality started to immerge. His humor, even so young was unlike the rest of the children & the laughter he brought was infectious. Deo opened Jared & Jasmine's hearts, taught them many valuable lessons about life and ultimately inspired them to embody that spirit, always. Deo, despite his hardships is a happy little boy being well taken care of at Keirungi Children's Village and Jared & Jasmine would like to see to it, that not only him, but ALL the children and staff continue to have what they need. That's why they have decided to donate a percentage of their profits to this awesome children's home, doing big work!
Why Jasmine Van Driessche chose Old Mill
We're two proud Seward Locals giving back locally & internationally! Jared and Jasmine believe strongly in community, both local and international. They also know you have many choices in choosing accommodation when staying in Seward, so they wanted to share how you'll be making a difference with them! Deo's Alaskan Cabin will donate a dance scholarship for The Apex Gym to children & youth in need through the Seward Arts Council, as they strongly believe in fostering arts in the community. They will also donate to help Keirungi Children's Village with everyday needs, such as food, labor & education materials in Kabale, Uganda. They hope you'll be a part of their journey!
What makes this Cabin unique
Deo's Alaskan Cabin sits on a beautiful piece of property, located close to all the local attractions, yet tucked away to offer the peace & tranquility only Alaska can provide. It's a magical place alive with many different types of birds & wildlife & the sounds of Lost Creek in the distance just kicks it up a notch. Every detail of Deo's Cabin was carefully thought out, you have to experience it to see it's true beauty!

Great place to stay!
Quiet little cabin nestled in the woods and convenient to Seward. Perfect getaway.
Thank you for the wonderful words, Donnie! We have worked hard to create a space for that perfect getaway!
Don't be hesitate! Just book this one!
I'm so glad I made a right decision to go for this cabin. It's really clean, cute, private, convenient and got everything you could ask for in a reasonable price.
Everything looks exactly the same as in the pictures. Wifi works great. It's away from downtown 15mins and easy to drive. Buy food before you get in so it's easy. I've seen the hotels in downtown and the others around Exit Glacier(10mins away) when I drove by and surely Deo's cabin is the best since you will get a private whole cabin with 2bedrooms(3 full size beds) included kitchen and all toiletries.
The owners are very very nice. They always concern about you and promptly to answer any questions or help and even discount for local tours. It might take time for them to reply the email but not too long.
I didn't get to see them in person but they emailed me the whole details about cabin's rules or facilities and direction to make it easy because pretty much you have to do self check in and check out. That might feel uncomfortable at the beginning to see no one at the place but after you walk in to the cabin, you will completely be at ease and enjoy the stay.
The only thing you have to concern is since there is no counter service or no staff around at the place, you can't drop your bags securely there. We arrived from cruise ship in the morning but the check in time is 3pm. Luckily, we had car rental reservation at Hertz so we drop our bags there before the actual time to pick up the car to drive to the cabin later.
Metira, Thank you for the great review!
Adorable cabin with all the amenities of home.
Thank you, Rose! We're so happy you felt at home!!
Charming and comfortable getaway retreat
Our 2 night stay at Doe's cabin was comfortable, convenient and just what we expected. Love the location - secluded and quiet but not out of the way. Our kids loved the roomy loft and I appreciated the well appointed amenities. We will be back!
We'll be delighted to welcome you and your family back, Lisa! It always makes us happy to hear when Deo's Cabin has been truly enjoyed & we love the location as well. You put it perfectly..."Secluded and quiet, but not out of the way".
Jasmine & Family
Perfect relaxing place
The cabin is located close to the mountains. The owners have very thoughtfully put together the cabin. Everything is so tastefully done. My daughter felt inspired by how the cabin was decorated.
Jasmine, the owner is so organized she has written everything up in the sheet. Before arriving at the cabin she sent us detailed instructions on getting there.
We stayed there for a couple of days. I think it was too short a time and we will have stay there at least a week to do justice to the place.
I highly recommend this place especially if you're traveling with family as the kids will enjoy the loft.
Thank you for your kind words, Vikram! We worked hard to create an inspiring space, so it was wonderful to hear your daughter felt just that!
Super cute little place. Great location in Seward. Quiet neighborhood.
Owners are very friendly and easy to work with. Jasmine and her mom happily booked a couple of tours for us and even got us a discount. The list of things to do in the area that Jasmine sent us was helpful. Deo's Cabin is very cute, bursting with charm and personal touches. All the necessary kitchen dishes, utensils, and even a few pantry staples like coffee, tea, flour, sugar and spices were provided. Lots of extras in the kitchen! The house was clean and plenty of nice linens were available. The only downside to this sweet place is how small it is. The upstairs loft has quite a bit of room but the master bedroom is pretty tight and casual seating on the main floor is limited to a loveseat and two wooden kitchen table benches. The front porch was nice to sit on but chairs other than metal folding ones would be a plus for relaxing after a long day hiking to Exit Glacier, visiting the Sea Life Center, fishing or sea kayaking...all kinds of fun things to do in Seward. Grab a delicious panini and piece of amazing cheesecake from Zudy's Cafe and head outside to watch the sea otters play. Seward is a beautiful place to visit and Deo's Cabin is a great place to stay!
Thank you for your review Mike & Susan! We really appreciate your suggestion about comfortable chairs on the porch, upcoming this season!
