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

Interesting review and find some items need clarification from our viewpoint. Very happy you loved our location - we do too! The lake is a beauty and we feel blessed to live in such a lovely area. We wish all our guests were capable to take a paddle and have the same experience as you. You are a seasoned traveler... 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!

David - very nice to read your review and know that we ticked all the right boxes for you and Fawn! We feel our location is truly special and we appreciate hearing the same from our guests.

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. Our young housekeepers love to hear the comments on the reviews about how spotless everything is kept. They are doing the HARD work and our Innkeeper and us... More

Had a great time staying here. Loved the kayaks and the lake right out the back door! The breakfasts were great and there was plenty of food. If you are a picky eater, just tell them and they will accommodate requests. But without telling them they have lots of options. Everyone was very friendly, talkative and nice!

We stayed at Bear Lake Lodgings B&B for two nights in June of 2014. No complaints. Location was good, easy to find. Short ride to Seward. Check in was efficient. Room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was good. Overall service was good. We never met the owners as they were not on property while we stayed there. Common area encouraged... More

Thank you for mentioning some good points for future guests. We are close to Seward, but yet not in the city limits. This gives guests a nice savings on sales and bed taxes - an 8% difference for staying 3 miles from the city limits! The added peace and quiet is worth the 10 minute drive to the boat harbor... More

My husband and I enjoyed a 3 night stay at the very comfortable Bear Lake Lodgings. The home is located on a lovely lake in a quiet neighborhood outside of Seward. The first night we had a room with a shared bathroom, not a problem. The next two nights we had the very spacious King suite that was worth the... More

It's very good to hear that the lower priced two rooms on the third floor worked well for guests. The two rooms share a bath, which is not the first choice for most travelers. The impute about it not being a problem is good for future guests to juggle when coming to stay with us - those rooms are a... More
