Why Catherine Weiford chose Bear Creek
We are incredibly thankful to live in such an amazing place. We purchased the property with the intent of creating a unique and special lodging experience to share with other travelers. It is close to many hiking trails and only an easy ten minute drive into town and the harbor.
What makes this Cottage unique
Front row seats to enjoy the changing moods of the lake. Watch for waterfowl, seasonal spawning salmon, eagles, and the occasional loon or bear. Kayaks available for our guests to enjoy.

Perfectly quite and picturesque
Our family really enjoyed our stay. The house was spacious and it was great to have some food staples in the house upon our arrival. Everyone said their beds were comfortable and the separated levels allowed for more privacy for each couple. The only disappointment was that we could not fish outside our cabin right at the lake 50 feet from the cabin.
I can't say enough good things about this property. The house is really nice, with comfortable beds, internet and cable (and an amazing view of the mountains and the lake). Our favorite part was sitting on the lake by the fire pit each night. It's a secluded and quiet location, but within 10 minute drive of restaurants, the waterfront area and downtown. It's also close to Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park. My daughter kept saying "I wish we could stay here another week".
Beautiful view great property
Beautiful view. Convenient to Seward. Nice and clean. Expectations met and exceeded. Thanks!
Beautiful home to vacation in on the lake!
Great for a family....nice place to relax after a busy day.
Fantastic choice in Seward Alaska
Our family of 9 (multigenerational) spent 4 days at the Lakefront Paradise in June 2017. The property is lovely, as described, and larger than the pictures would imply. No one felt cramped. The cottage was well appointed. The owner (Carolyn) was kind and immediately attentive to our needs. We rented a canoe from a local outfitter during out stay. Enjoyed every moment watching bald eagles from the deck, and frying up local seafood in the kitchen. Watched the salmon running (just down the road) every day. Kids loved it. Huge success. Highly recommended .
Well stocked cabin in a beautifully rustic location. Conveniently close to Seward!
Clean, comfortable and spacious! Our group loved it.
We are in a quiet, wooded neighborhood; a quick 10 minutes to the harbor and downtown. Steps away from the historic Iditarod Trail and walking distance to the Bear Creek fish weir. Close to Exit Glacier and numerous hiking trails.
