Nice comfortable room, stayed for two nights, helpful and friendly hosts Pat and Ginny made you feel at home, bonus of being able to Kayak on the wonderful lake where the lodge is located to see Salmon or any of the other wildlife around. Even able to see nesting Eagles from the lodge through Pats scope. Easy 20 minute drive... More

This was our last B&B in Alaska and we loved it! Our innkeeper was charming, the place was immaculate and cozy and the view amazing! We were in the lakeside suite. I was concerned About a separate bathroom, but ours was the only guest suite in that level so it was very private. The room itself was very large and... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of July. Situated on the outskirts of Seward on a mostly private lake. It was great to be 5 minutes from the town and have the peace and quiet of the woods and lake. The B&B lets you have use of their kayaks tp paddle around the lake. The lake is... More

We stayed in this B&B a few weeks ago. Beautiful setting, complementary kayaks are great in good weather, which is rare. Wish we could see the owners more, they seemed to be lovely people but we mainly had to interact with the innkeeper Dealoah.I can imagine some guests finding it difficult to put up with her style but we managed...

Our location is VERY special and happy you recognized the beauty it offers for our B&B guests. The lovely green is lush from it's "rain forest" location, as our section of the Kenai Peninsula falls into the Northern Boreal Rain Forest. So, the guest is right on our sketchy weather possibilities. Visiting Alaska is not a trip to plan for... More

We've just returned home from our Alaska trip, which was awesome. Lodging is generally expensive, so we tried to camp as much as possible and limit our other lodging. So it was important for us that once we do stay at a place, it would be the best. We couldn't chose better than Bear Lake B&B. So close to Steward... More

We stayed here a few weeks ago for two nights at the start of a family holiday in Alaska. One of the principle reasons we stayed here was not the 5* Trip Advisor reviews but the wonderful response we received over a year ago from Pat when we made our initial enquiry. Pat sent to us a host of information... More

I had a really good time at Bear Lake Lodge. It was one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed! The food was good and the property was beautiful. I really enjoyed kayaking on the lake in the early morning. I would most definitely stay there again.

I loved the location of this Inn. It is set on a lake, with kayaks available for use which was definitely one of the reasons I chose it. It was beautiful and the little paddle we took was perfect. There were Eagles flying overhead. Across the road was an Eagle's nest with the babies hatched that we were able to... More

The king bedroom was spacious with great views of Bear Lake. Breakfast was tasty, and Pat and Dennis and staff were extremely helpful. Loved using their kayaks on Bear Lake. Felt like I was in another world on the lake!

My husband & I arrived in Anchorage & drove directly to Seward to Bear Lake....it was a perfect introduction to our first trip to Alaska....incredible surroundings....overlooking lovely little lake & mountains. Property was spotless and accommodation excellent Would recommend to anyone...it is on outskirts of Seward but only about a 10 minute drive to everything.

Happy you found us a great beginning to your Alaskan adventure. I'm hoping the rest of your stays in Alaska were a pleasant and comfortable as you found our accommodations to be.
