Stepping over the threshhold, exhausted, I instantly felt at home. Except better, because it was cleaner than my actual home. It's a historic house, but not all dolled up, it's just nice. An easy walk to the waterfront. The owner had it open specially for an October conference, I felt like I was treated like a favorite niece. Except better.... More

Our stay at the Ballaine House B&B in Seward was a treat after our overnight flight to Anchorage and drive to Seward during the wee hours. The owner and managers had invited us to stop in to rest as early as we wanted, even if our room was not ready but it was! We love old homes and historic places,... More

Man what can I say. First off the rooms were comfortable and clean. I had the best sleep in weeks here. It was super quiet. I had such a great dream I woke up laughing. Second, Its easy to find as it is on the main road yet you feel removed from any hint of traffic and hubub with the... More

We just had the most wonderful stay at Ballaine House B&B in Seward, AK. We were embraced by the warm hospitality of our hosts. The food was delicious with lots of choices for all the interesting multinational guests. The house was spotless & comfortable & invitingly appointed in keeping with its historical heritage. We learned so much about the area... More

I had a wonderful stay. The home is very comfortable- extremely clean and well kept. Bree was willing to do anything to ensure every guest had a great experience- whether it be offering to do laundry, providing a shuttle run, etc. Last and certainly not least- the breakfasts were outstanding!

Home away from home. This is what I would run if I were to run a B&B. You remove your shoes as you walk in the door (so sensible to not drag outside stuff in your rooms) and you walk into the living room which has couple of couches, TV and a laptop. We chilled in the living room couple... More

I loved this place! The house is really nice and clean, and it has character too. It's in a real good location, by a free Seward bus stop, but really close enough to walk to downtown and the harbor. Mt. Marathon is right out back. Bree was a great hostess, super nice, helpful, and a great cook! I would recommend... More

The B&B experience depends a lot on the people running the place - sometimes it's brilliant, and others it's like staying with the weird relatives you try to avoid at holiday gatherings. Ballaine House was in the former category. I stayed 3 nights and from the moment I emailed Marlee (the owner) to check availability she was so kind and... More

we had an excellent stay here...extremely clean and comfortable. The breakfast food was excellent. We also got superior advice on the area plus help with anything we needed...kind of like staying with family minus the drama and tension.

This is by far the best B&B I have ever stayed in, I felt so at home and comfortable there I didn't want to leave. The house is historic and walking distance to both pier and town. The rooms were adorable and comfortable, immaculately clean with plenty of space and hooks to hang your stuff. Each room had wifi, tv... More
