I am glad we chose this place to stay as I am not a big fan of staying in hotels. This guest house made you feel like you were staying as a local. I liked the fact you could come and go as you please, cook your own meals and had a good location close to town. The thing I really liked was the special things that the host did to make you feel welcome, such as fruit, chocolate, popcorn and muffins. If I return to Seward, I would certainly consider this accommodation again

As fortunate as it is having a hotel right near the Alaska Railroad if you're connecting onto a rail journey, it can also guarantee a restless night, as we had to listen to all the bells and whistles of every arriving and departing train all night. Fortunately we've learned to pack ear plugs for every holiday, usually reserved for …
... we reach Seward. Boy, this is beautiful country! Traveling along between 5000' mountains, their flanks covered with shades of green that varying between dark and light and with those bald brown peaks- how can scenery get any better than this?
Eventually we come to the wye in the road where Seward Highway #1 becomes Seward Highway #9 and Highway #1 becomes the Sterling Highway which continues on down the Kenai Peninsula to ...
... rising waves and the wind blows fiercely as rain pelts us, soaking our jackets. There are 4 Orcas, including a baby. The male's black dorsal fin is ramrod straight and huge as it glides in and out of the water, the swells and rain not bothering them at all. At the bow, Chris covers his camera with a waterproof bag and struggles to take photos while holding on to the railing as the swells rise and fall, the boat bobbing erratically. In the distance, a humpback whale ...
... they catch there. These are the salmon from eggs that were put into the lake further up so they are able to catch them when they return, up to their quota. We spent quite a bit of time watching the incredible effort put in by the salmon as they try to jump up over the weir and the very fast flowing water. At times they seemed to make it only to not have the strength to keep swimming and sliding back down the weir. It was quite sad to see the effort they put in knowing their fate ...
... shoes, so I took him up on it & so glad I did. My new shoes are pretty spiffy & was happy to give the local economy some business.
This hiking venue wasn't as nice as Exit Glacier. The terrain was rugged & no view at all, we went about a mile & decided to turn back, walking on large rocks going uphill just wasn't relaxing. Plus I got a little spooked that we would run across a bear & wasn't in the mood to play dead. Returned to the hotel ...
