Although our time in Seward was cold and rainy that was only the weather. Inside this delightful B&B Mike and Masha do everything they can to help you feel warm, dry and like family! We stayed two nights in early June and watched Mike prepare two mornings of breakfast treats that had us wanting to stay longer. Not only can... More

My wife and I were there in Early July and we stayed for a couple of nights in the upper bedroom. It was our first B&B so we were not sure what to expect but everything was great from the room to the location of the unit to the company/owners (Marsha and Michael). The location is within walking distance to... More

The reason we like staying in B&Bs in people's homes from time to time is to interact with local people and that's just what we did at Marsha and Mike's summer home. They are a lovely couple who willingly share their knowledge of the area and team well to provide that amazing breakfast. The food just kept coming! Mike was... More

Marsha & Mike were very welcoming and went out of the way to accommodate us. We arrived late around midnight and they served us breakfast at 6.30am! Mike is a great cook, it was nice talking to them over breakfast. The bed was cosy and the bathroom was more than adequate, and the folks were genuinely good. Would stay here... More

In writing this review I am conflicted. On one hand Mike and Marsha were friendly, informative and down right helpful. The rooms had been refurbished and the beds very comfortable. Effective free wi fi was included. And go and have a look at the view from the upstairs bathroom its amazing Houses in Seward are frankly very ordinary this is... More

Mike and Marsha were great hosts, very helpful on what to do in Seward, and made awesome breakfasts! Even got us to try and enjoy lox! All of the food was made with a local flavor, including salmon cakes, fireweed jam make by a neighbor, raspberry jam, and ceviche(we passed as we could see the smoke coming off of it... More

Ok, we have not stayed in every B&B in Seward but is is hard to imagine any better place to stay. Reasons: 1. Small with three sleeping rooms, comfortable beds and a gourmet breakfast by Chef Mike and sous chef Marsha, supervised by Butchey, the head Cocker Spaniel. TV in room, large modern bathroom and very quiet area with plenty... More

We (two couples) visited Seward in August 2014 and stayed at the Sunshine b&b for one night. Marsha and Michael were very kind and showed great hospitality. So did their cute dog! The beds in both rooms were comfortable. The superstar was the home-made breakfast. The skillet was so delicious and I finished two of them (gold medal of our... More

Marcia makes beautiful quilts, and there were 3 in our room, Not only was the food at breakfast wonderful, but there was more than enough food, which they say is their goal. Fresh fruit cut up, home-made smoked salmon spread, omelets, potato casserole, pancakes, ... And the hosts were right there as we ate breakfast to answer questions about the... More
