We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay at A Swan Nest Inn. There are stairs to climb with luggage (it is a nest after all), which wasn't a problem for us, but might be for others. The rooms are quaint and breakfast was served in a nice homely area. The host and staff were very helpful, relaxed and... More

We had a very pleasant stay at the hotel. Sarah was very helpful and breakfast was awesome. Fresh banana cake was served. It is at walking distance from the coastline/ marina. Will definitely recommend this place to friends and family

Prior to checking in I had read info on the web about the people that own it and the accommodations so when we arrived the only surprise we had were how nice Tom, the owner, and Sara, the manager, were. The rooms were small, simple, rustic and immaculately clean. There was a loft which would be great for kids. The... More

We stayed in this very friendly bed and breakfast for just one night and wished we could have stayed longer. It was clean, comfortable and good value with a great breakfast. Easy walking distance to the Sealife Centre.

We had a family trip to Alaska and stayed two nights in Seward. The staff at the hotel was very helpful and informative. The location to the sea life center was a bonus. Several restaurants in nearby area.

Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay here. The outside is not very attractive, but our room was super. There was a loft for our 2 boys which they loved. The breakfast room has a superb view of the harbor. They made our breakfast to order. Egg, Canadian bacon, and fresh baked pastries. Delicious. The location is very convenient... More

Our family of four spent one night here and enjoyed our stay. The rooms are rather small, but efficiently designed to provide room for our "stuff" . Our two teenaged boys managed very well in the loft. Owners are friendly and helpful.

very nice little b&b friendly staff makes you feel at home. Awesome dog that stays there owned by the owners. Not a lot to do at the place other than talk to guests and staff in the dining/living area. And for the four of us it was a little "cozy" and tight. A queen bed for the parents and two... More

We were there in late May 2014. It is a cute set up with Great Hospitality. Sarah made us breakfast daily ( great sourdough pancakes) and was able to book activities and answer our many questions.Our room overlooked town. Great gathering area where we were able to spend time with people from all over the world.
