At first it seems a bit odd, then the feeling is replaced by curiosity and finally appreciated and thanks. Room meticulous level is not clear, every item and object seem invested in it thought. Both environmental and pragmatic. Kitchen is open and inviting, comfortable and easy. Meager price will wash alone, plus a little to get everything laundered and ironed... More

We stayed at A Swan Nest Inn at the end of the 2013 summer Alaskan season. Nick, the manager, was very helpful and friendly throughout our 2-night stay. He knows the area very well, and even loaned us some bear spray when we expressed some hesitation of walking the Harding Icefield trail. Breakfast in the morning was pretty good for... More

This was the perfect place for my husband and I to spend the night in Seward. The location was right in the center of town. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The inn provided all of the amenities we could ask for, staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great.

This was a very nice bed and breakfast. Our room was nicely appointed. The loft was charming for kiddos and was accessible by a ladder. The bathroom was very large. We had to carry our bags up a large outside staircase. The dining room had nice view of the bay. The breakfast served was ok.

I loved this cosy b & b right in the centre of the lovely town of Seward in Alaska. The rooms were all nicely designed, for example the room we stayed in had a nice loft to which you had to climb in via a little step ladder. The homemade pancakes with berries were out of this world, and the... More

Right in Seward, but off of the main street. Great location, and Nick was a wonderful host! He provided helpful information about the area, and he bakes a mean loaf of banana-blueberry bread! Continental breakfast is included, or Nick will whip up a full breakfast for you for an additional cost.

We only stayed one night , but very much enjoyed our stay. We met with Nick who was very nice and happy to help with anything. The B&B reminded me of an upscale hostel, in that the common area was very welcoming and they had items you could help your self to if needed, like an extra towel or hairdryer;... More

Very comfy rooms. Great location. The staff was very helpful in providing information about the area including hiking trails and kayaking opportunities. Nick, the Innkeeper, made wonderful scones and loaves every morning for breakfast. Highly recommended!
