The B&B is located on the banks of Bear Lake, 7 miles north of Seward, a few minutes off the highway. After enjoying the trails and activities around your B&B, make the short drive south to explore the historic downtown’s restaurants and shops. Kids will want to spend a few hours learning about the many different sea creatures at the Alaska Sealife Center, the state’s biggest aquarium. Seward is also the perfect place to begin a day trip to Kenai Fjords National Park or embark on a fishing charter. There are dozens of tour companies and fishing boats to help plan your adventure.

I felt like an honored guest, and at the same time relaxed into encyclopedic knowledge and information about the area and Alaska, while sitting on a cozy couch in the common area. The breakfast was delicious and presented with elegance and a smile. Further enhancing my visit , the other guests, visitors from France, we shared stories over breakfast together.
All this in a settling that is majestic and serene, fish jumping on a glassy lake, birds serenading and a dock to enjoy morning coffee (excellent).
This place is fantastic! Every detail is attended to by the wonderful hosts, Pat and Dennis. We highly recommend it!! The ice cream bars, made to order as you watch, are a culinary delight. The kayaks and dock were also great! Loved the breakfast!
