My family of 6, 2 adults and 4 children, stayed in Bears Den 3. We found the place to be spotlessly clean, comfortable and perfect for our stay. The beds were comfortable, the curtains kept out the light, the bathrooms and kitchen were well stocked and the layout was comfortable. Three bedrooms provided necessary family harmony. Our view was that of the homes across the street and a mountain top above. We found it quite pleasant. We also found many outdoor activities in Seward that the view didn't matter much to us. Breakfast is not included with Bears Den 3 but Safeway is 2 doors down so we grabbed what we needed and were set. The Adelmann's checked in with us on occasion but then left us with plenty of privacy.
A couple of highlights were when Shari met us with a plate full of cookies, right out of the oven. The kids thought that this might happen every time we walked in the door, so after devouring the treats they walked in and out the door a few times to see if it would work :). Another was when a moose walked right in front of our door, crossing between it and our car on the driveway. Seven y/o daughter, "Mom there's a big brown thing in our driveway!" And last we were so pleased when Shari sent my sons lost DS cartridge back to us in Maryland. Anyone with a DS knows how small those cartridges are. A testament to the level of cleanliness!
The only slight criticism is that the shampoo/conditioner/soap dispenser in the shower only provides 1 small teardrop of product. Not sure if it's clogged or by design. We did not mention it (too busy having fun) so there was no opportunity to remedy the complaint.
We would definitely stay again and recommend to family and friends.
