Why Catherine Weiford chose Kenai Peninsula

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.

Front row seats to enjoy the changing moods of the lake. Watch for waterfowl, seasonal spawning salmon, eagles, and the occasional loon or bear.

Fantastic cabin for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally write reviews but I wanted to add a few overall thoughts of our great stay up in Seward. The house is just perfect, situated right on Bear Lake and away from the busy downtown just enough. There were tons of spawning salmon just steps from the deck and we had a small bonfire both nights of our stay. There were four of us fishing and we made dinner each night there at the cabin - kitchen is equipped with everything you'll need. The house can be divided too with two kitchens and separate entries but we just used the bottom floor for making dinner, enjoying wine and watching TV after a long day of catching halibut and salmon. The house was very clean and they even had a welcome sign out front for us.

I'd highly recommend the house for anyone looking for a great place to stay. Why stay at a hotel if you have more two or more needed rooms - this place is cheaper and has a real 'at home' feel. We left a few items in our hurry to get back to the airport and the owner was so kind that she mailed them back to us in a sturdy and protected box. Thank you!

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

Clean, quiet, superb location. Salmon were spawning directly in front of the house, blueberries were ripe on the hiking trail just down the road, and the bald eagles and loons provided our evening entertainment. Comfortable beds, fresh linens, and everything needed for meals and coffee made this one of the most enjoyable vacations I've ever had. Thanks!

Fantastic property, wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 adults (2 couples, 1 single) rented both the upstairs and downstairs units of this property on Bear Lake. The property was extremely well kept, clean, comfortable and well appointed. We grilled out one night on the gas grill, cooked in the kitchen, took several walks on the nearby trail (where we picked wild blueberries, raspberries and saw salmon spawning!). This property was very conveniently located a few miles from Seward yet provided a much warmer experience, allowing us to head into town for dinner or excursions but relax on the lake and spend some quality time together.

Map

Car: necessary

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.
