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.

Fantastic choice in Seward Alaska

  • 5 of 5

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 .

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!

Location

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.
