My husband and I thought we were doomed when we realized that booking lodging 7 weeks before our Seward trip is considered procrastination, according to Alaskan tourism standards. After seeing every hotel/motel 3+ stars sold out, we turned to Airbnb for rescue. Behold Bear Lake Lodgings! Of the four rooms the lodge offers, the two private suites were sold out,...

They had me at "Complimentary Kayaking" so I already knew this would be our favorite stay and it did not disappoint. Linda did an excellent job and made us feel at home. We only stayed 2 nights and I wish we could have stayed at the cabin longer and explored more around Bear lake, but we had too much adventuring...

Really lovely BnB. Innkeeper Linda made great breakfasts, and was very sweet. Bedrooms and facilities were comfortable and spacious. Would have loved to have tried out the available canoes and kayaks on the serene lake. Next time!

Thank you Times. You both were such an added compliment to our Inn. Please come back again and use the Kayaks and Canoes. I am so glad you had a chance to have dinner in some of our local restaurants. When you are in the Seward area again please call and come stay with us again. Linda-Innkeeper

We loved Bear Lake Lodge, although we were only there for a short time. The room and common area were spacious and very nice, and the bed was really comfortable. The hosts were out of town working at the state fair, but Linda, the innkeeper, was really helpful and friendly. We later met one of the hosts, Pat, when we...

With daughters aged 22 and 19 we stayed in the 2 rooms on the top floor. Spacious and comfortable with a great view of the lake and facilities. For us the property and experience was perfect, less than 1 mile from the main road. We could easily get around efficiently and return to the quiet, relaxed surroundings. Linda looked after...

We loved our 3-night stay at Bear Lake Lodge. Linda is incredibly warm and accommodating - starting off with our arrival where she kept the ice cream out so we could have dessert before dinner! And it just continued from there! Our breakfasts were luscious and provided the ample nutrition we needed for our amazing Seward excursions (hiking up to...

This is a location on Bear Lake, 6 miles outside Seward, Alaska. It is in a quiet, rural neighborhood. The grounds were carefully cared for by the owner, and plenty of room to park.

Thank you for the great review. It is so important to running a B&B to know you have accomplished your goals of making it a pleasant stay. It is two sided though. You were such great guests. Mingling with the other guests and so pleasant. Thank you for sharing with us. Please think of us when in the area again....
