My family and I stayed 2 nights in our new fifth wheel in the Renfro's RV park. This was our first experience rving, and it couldn't have been better. Renfro's is clean, quiet, and beautiful. I walked down to the lakeside and was greeted with probably the most beautiful view I have ever seen in my life. It is like... More

Stayed 2 nights with my family. Everything you need is in your cabin. Beautiful setting and I don't think I have ever been somewhere so quiet and peaceful! Booked a wonderful cruise through him, was nice to have everything ready for us. I loved this place!

Typical of Seward in the summer, I had trouble finding last minute accomodations at the standard hotels in town for my recent business trip. Booking.com recommended Renfro's Lakeside Retreat as an alternative at a very attractive price. I checked it out a bit further and saw that it was only about 20 minutes North of town, that it was clean... More

The cabin is fully furnished and neat. The furniture and decoration are so delicate and looks better than the photos showed. The host is so friendly and gave us much help. About 20 minutes to downtown, not a long distance.

Our cabin #3 is charming. The dining table is facing the lake with amazing view. My son tried fishing in front of the cabin. We enjoy the short walk cross the railway to the office deck to use free WiFi which speed is high enough. Gary is a great guy who provided very detail directory when reservation confirmed and prepared... More

Our cabin was wonderful, fully equipped even with some chocolate mints! I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a charming rustic atmosphere. Everything was clean as could be and no annoying heavy perfume on the sheets or towels like we ran into elsewhere. Gary tried really hard to help me download and print our boarding passes, but it was... More

Renfro's is a favorite retreat of our family. We try to get there at least a couple times a year and it never disappoints Cozy cabins and fantastic hosts. Seward is close enough to drive in for dinner, gift shopping or groceries. We love it at Renfro's!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin #5 at Renfro's Lakeside Retreat. The cabin is fully furnished, and the view is amazing! We loved being able to have a campfire in the evening. The location is central, so it's convenient to Seward for a Kenair Fjords tour, or to the Copper Landing Area for hikes/fishing along the Kenai river.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and our stay was relaxing and amazing. The views were really terrific. We made our own campfire in front of our lakeside cabin every evening. Only minus is that there is no microwave in the cabin. This location is remote with no cell phone signal and internet in the cabin. But we were okay... More

Clean, comfortable and private cottages by the lake with superb views. What more do you want? We stayed here for 2 nights and would definitely recommend it. You can make a fire in front of your cabin.
