Stayed for three nights with another couple. When we arrived owner was not at home but arrangements were made with another couple staying there to help us settle in. We were in downstairs room with bathroom outside of room but curtain was in place to give us privacy. Lori arrived late that night and greeted us next morning with scones,... More

We so thoroughly enjoyed your visit with us, and I am glad that you had a good time while staying in Seward. I hope that your cruise to Vancouver was a lot of fun! Both Dan and I wish that we could do something about the noise from the pipes for the bedroom off of the kitchen, but that is... More

We stayed a few nights in the Alaska Room, which is right off the kitchen but also has its own entrance from the driveway. It is immaculate though small, but not very quiet (you hear all the kitchen noise and the water running from upstairs, etc.). You have to leave the room to get to the bathroom, but they have... More

This B&B is for couples. However, we were a few guys on an adventure trip in AK. But Lori - the owner - made every attempt to accommodate our needs and make the stay as comfortable as possible. The main reason for booking this place was the reviews I read on TripAdvisor, and it was $30/night cheaper than the motel... More

We enjoyed our stay at Bear Ridge B&B for the most part. Our only reservation was that we were in the Alaska Room right off the kitchen and we had to exit our room to get to the bathroom which was in view of the kitchen. But that was really not much of a problem. There was an outside entrance... More

The view from our room was beautiful, the hosts Lori and Dan were quite hospitable, and the extra $5 pp for hot cooked breakfast was WELL worth it! We would stay here again. We have stayed at B and B's a few other times and this is the very best!

Never stayed in a B&B before, and thinking I probably won't again. It was weird having the owners sitting there watching game shows on the TV and seeing their personal pictures and belongings all over. The back yard had flies galore. The smell of fish was so strong, , that we had to leave the area after about 15 mins.... More

I would like to respond to several items in the reviewer's comments. First, both of our rooms have blinds and curtains (one set of curtains does have the extra backing material, and both rooms do become dark when the blinds and curtains are closed). Second, our community is a fishing community and we do have a fish processing plant; hence,... More

We loved our stay here. Lori was great and very hospitable. Nice garden with a mountain view (although one building is slightly in the way). I used the hot tub both nights. We didn’t get to use the fire pit, but that looked like a great set-up and outdoor hang-out space. Breakfast is continental – lots of options. Both days... More
