The breakfast offerings are delightful, with a little bit of something for every palate. They are more than willing to accommodate special dietary restrictions, which is fabulous. The sheets are excellent quality, making for a dream worthy nights sleep. Friendly and highly knowledgeable staff make this B&B an overall delightful experience.

We originally booked the Bear Lake B & B for two nights and then added a third night.  We just can't say enough about our stay and the good experience we had. The owners were extremely knowledgeable about local history and the surrounding areas, giving us many great recommendations for restaurants, site seeing and must see ideas.  In addition to... More

This was my second WINTER visit. My family has several Summer stays under our belts at Bear Lake Lodgings as well. My MIL was visiting from Arizona. My two boys, ages 4 and 6, also came with us! Although my MIL has been to Alaska a handful of times, she has never been to Seward! The fresh foot of snow... More

Bear Lake B&B is situated in a great location with most rooms having a view of Bear Lake although it is about 4 miles from downtown Seward. Our room overlooked the lake and had a balcony, large bedroom, en-suite and a small room with a day bed. Obviously the best room in the place. The chocolate dipped ice creams served... More

We truly regret the situation you experienced with our Innkeeper during summer 2015. For future guests planning their accommodations stay in Seward, we WILL have a new Professional Innkeeper joining our staff for summer 2016. Our MOST favorite Innkeeper, Ginny, will be returning for half the summer (see all the complimentary reviews mentioning her) along with a carefully screened congenial... More

Bear Lake Lodgings was the first place we stayed on our Alaska trip, and an absolute favorite. Other than an intense quantity of information when we arrived (to the point of not allowing my son to go to the bathroom until she was done) this was a lovely B&B. We stayed in the Mt. Tiehacker room, which was perfect for... More

This was a great place. The location just outside of Seward is awesome - it feels secluded like you want in an Alaskan Lodge but its only a few minutes from downtown. The owners were the coolest, breakfast was delicious, and the handmade ice cream bars in the evening were a complete surprise and put a great finishing touch on... More
