We arrived at the cabin and could not have been happier. Joe has a lot of good books for reviewing life, birds, bear and all around Alaskan life. We loved the art hanging on the walls and used the grill every night. Joe made us feel welcome, and his son TJ checked us in and showed us a picture of... More

Allens provides an authentic Alaska experience. With their extensive knowledge of the area and great personal warmth, Joe, Brenda and TJ couldn't be better hosts. The location a few miles from downtown, blocks from the Lost Lake trailhead and close to other hikes is perfect. The cabin is large enough for us to get organized and comfortably enjoy our time...

We originally rented from Joe on our first trip to Alaska in 2008 and chose it for its proximity to the Lost Lake Trailhead and Seward. This August was our fourth trip and we are already planning again for next year! The cabin is warm, quiet, comfortable, and well cared for. It's the perfect mix of close to town but... More

Recently we were privileged to spend some time with Joe Allen and his son TJ, at his accommodation. Joe was incredibly helpful and organised us the most amazing kayak adventure. His local knowledge was what we were after. We had travelled from New Zealand and really wanted to met the locals and experience the sights first hand. Joe was really... More

We stayed 2 nights. Perfectly comfortable for a parents and two teenagers. Very quiet and the Allens are very welcoming. We were too exhausted to take advantage of the fire when we got back in on our second evening, but it was a very nice gesture. We would definitely stay here again. It's close enough to town and activities, but... More

I was looking for a spacious cabin surrounded by nature close to Seward but not in town, no tourist hoards, with nice proprietors. Joe and Brenda's cabin was perfect. Just a few miles north of town (you will need a car), it is the sole rental on their private property behind their home, and surrounded by forest. The cabin was... More

This was our 4 th stay at Joe's cabin. There's nothing like pulling up in your car, being greeted by the dogs ( and joe and Tj) opening up the cabin door and knowing you are home. Since our last stay Joe has made some improvements to the cabin such as a nice deck for the cabin and a nice... More

When my son and I decided to take our first trip to Alaska we soon discovered we were going late in the season and a few things (like trains, most salmon fishing & some glacier cruises) would be closed. But late September was the only time my son could get off work. Then we read on this site about Joe... More

We stayed two nights with the Allens and took the glacier day tour from Seward. We wanted a place not too far from the city and this was the closest well-reputed. Upon arrival, TJ was waiting for us and had lit the fire pit, which was perfect for our plan to sit out and enjoy. The cabin is very comfortable... More

We arrived at Joe's cabin exhausted from 10 days traveling around Alaska and found we had picked a perfect place to relax and rest. Joe and TJ were always available to help with how best to see the area but never at the expense of our privacy. We were offered gold pans, fishing equipment and ongoing tips on enjoying the... More
