My wife Jennifer and I chose this spot on Trail River to raise our children because of its incredible beauty. Trail River Gardens is located just 20 min from Seward in the heart of the Chugach mountains on beautiful Trail River. From our deck the river is just 50 feet away with the majestic Mount Madison as a back drop. There are lakes above and below us with mountains on all sides. You can walk to hiking trails to even more mountain lakes. If you like to hike and watch birds and other wildlife, then you will love it here at Trail River gardens.

We have lived in Alaska for 30 yrs here on beautiful Trail River. We also have a gift store, coffee shop and bakery in Seward.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 1994
I built the vacation rental because of the beautiful location. The cottage was originally built in the 1940's and I completely rebuilt it in 1997.
The cottage is located just 50 feet from the river. the view from the deck is no less than spectacular. There are lakes above and below us with mountains on all sides. There are lots of birds and other wildlife around us and many hiking trails.
The best location in all of Alaska! Great Owners! Terrific views with rushing river sound all day and night!! Open the windows and enjoy. Three Bedrooms and three baths make for an easy place to stay with family. We will be going back here!!
We rented this cabin for 3 nights with two adults and 3 teenagers. It rained the whole time we were there but the place was nice and warm and cozy. Best place we stayed on our Alaska trip. There were nearby hikes that we did, and the Exit Glacier, fishing in Seward etc. We cooked breakfast at the cabin and made sandwiches. Even grilled fish in the rain once. Some things to know: there are 3 burners to cook on; no oven. Wifi works but is spotty at times because of the location and maybe the weather. Waking up to The river out my window every morning was fabulous. Would choose to stay again.
Amazing place to stay!!!! Beautiful views, and the cabin was comfortable for all of us, 6 adults and 3 kids!!! The owners were very friendly!! I would recommend this to anyone!!!!
We had a great stay at this property. The pictures on the ad don't do justice to the beauty of this place!.. The cabin was well appointed with pretty much everything one would need. The 3 rooms had their own attached bathrooms and that was great.. There a er pullout beds in 2 rooms, and the kids loved it! The kitchen and the outdoor grill worked out perfect for us.. Russ was also very professional from the time we booked as well as through our stay. The only thing that was missing was a laundry... that's a small suggestion for Russ to add the proverbial icing on the cake!
We rented the cottage for 3 nights.. Everything - from the first call onwards, till we left the place - was memorable. Russ, the owner, happened to grow up, several years back before he moved to Alaska, on farmland where my kids now go to an elementary school. He was very professional and answered our many questions.
The place itself is away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life - 20 miles from Seward; perfect if you want a couple of days of peace.. The rooms were very cozy - tastefully decorated, kitchenette was adequate for small-time cooking, beds were very comfortable. Each of the 3 rooms had their own heater and bathrooms. It made out stay w/ our parents and kids enjoyable!
If you are looking to stay in Seward, I highly recommend this place.
We are fellow Alaskans who love in the Denali area so finding a place that is as breathtaking as Denali is difficult but this cottage has views! We were so impressed, we could lay in bed and watch the clouds roll by the mountains and watch the river run by, it was a breath of fresh air! The cottage was warm and inviting! It was clean and had little electric fireplaces in some of the rooms which kept you so cozy! Each room has their own shower which is so handy! This is a little gem so close to seward! It will definently be our go to when we head that way! Also, the owners were so kind and inviting and were great to talk with! They are a great example of true Alaskans and would be a great resource for non Alaskans to really understand the life you have to live in alaska! Needless to say our stay was excellent! Beds were comfy! Cottage was adorable with little alaskan touches! Kind hosts! And spectacular views! You can not beat this place! There are spectacular hiking trails all around and so close to glaciers which are a beautiful hike too! Hope you enjoy this gem!
