The location and views across Resurrection Bay with several glaciers in the mountainous background are wonderful. Gary, the host, is garrulous and full of useful information he is very willing to share. His wife, Cheryl, is friendly too, but sometimes parades through the house in pajamas. He proudly makes a "to order" breakfast which is very good - bacon and... More

We travel a lot around the world and usually try to stay in B&B. Just to be closer to the local people and to get more practical information about the country. This time we decided to visit Alaska as the wildlife is our favourite!!! After reading the reviews on TA we choosed Otter House B&B.. So we spent 3 nights... More

A first stay in Seward for us and our friends from the UK and we wished we had planned to stay longer than three days! Gary and Cheryl home is beautiful with well-appointed rooms. They are amazing hosts. Gary truly went above and beyond to welcome us - from the initial phone call to helping us see the sights, including... More

My partner and I decided last minute to try to stay in Seward for a night, and what amazing luck that Alaska's Otter House B&B had an open room. What an amazing place, and an amazing host! We arrived late, and Gary stayed up waiting for us, to greet us with a smile and a warm welcome. The house is... More

Our family (mom, dad and children ages 11 to 27) just spent a wonderful three days in this gorgeous home with God given views and most especially, two of the kindest, warmest folks you’ll meet. From our emails and initial phone call, we knew we were blessed. It’s in a great location…at the one end of town that’s peaceful, but... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Otter House B&B after a 3night overnight kayaking adventure in Resurrection Bay. The B&B was glorious! It provided the tranquil luxury we craved and was amazingly well run. The host, Gary, was the most accommodating person, polite and friendly. He helped us set up a whale watching tour and not only made a... More

This was my first bed and breakfast experience and I have to say, “I am sold.” The location of the house is in walking distance to everything and the view is spectacular. But what really made our stay so special is the outstanding hosts, Gary and Cheryl. They made us feel right at home and were so accommodating. The house... More

There exists a spectrum of B&B service - at one end you walk in the door and barely see the hosts and feel only slightly different than a hotel, on the other you are smothered or feel intrusive. This is the perfect balance for connectivity with the outgoing and accommodating Gary, where the home has been tailored to guests in... More

The house is very clean and the hosts are nice. The house is small and the accommodations are cozy. We could hear the folks in the next room rolling around in the bed all night long. This home felt like to small of space for 3 couples who didn't know each other to occupy. We were surprised the main road... More
