“The best place to stay in Seward”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

What a wonderful place to stay and by far the most comfortable place we stayed in all of our 2 week of traveling around Alaska. A wonderful fully equipped kitchen all the utensils and even spices, coffee, tea and some condiments. Even an outdoor grill and table with chairs which was great to grill our fresh local fish. The owners are eally nice and friendly including bring warm fresh baked cookies. Can't recomend this place enough !

Room Tip: Way better than staying in a hotel/motel with all the comforts of home and a way better price.

My niece and I visited Bears Den, Den 2, and had great accommodations. It included a living area, bed, kitchenette, separate bedroom and 3/4 bath. It was centrally located. Rich spent a lot of time giving us tips on things to do and we did almost everything on the list. I would definitely return.

We found the Bear's Den B and B to be a wonderful relaxing stay. Our host was great. They left breakfast items for us to eat, so we were able to sleep in or awaken very early, depending on our plans in the area. It is a beautiful drive to Seward and a fun spot for wildlife cruises.

We stayed at Bear's Den while visiting Seward in late August last year - it was wonderful. Super clean, very cozy, and convenient to the waterfront, boats, and great shopping. There were 4 of us and we found there was enough room for everyone. I highly recommend this B&B and hope to visit again later this year. Seward is wonderful, we took a wonderful boat trip and saw Stellar sea lions, mountain goats, eagles, and glaciers. It's also very close to Exit Glacier and we enjoyed our day- hike to the glacier base. Even in the rain, it was spectacular!

This is a very good place to stay in when in Seward. Clean and very well kept. They also keep good supply of stuff to eat (like, fruits, muffins, coffee, milk etc). We enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend this place.

This B&B is in the middle of Seward, and within walking distance of the piers. It was a great place to stay for our Alaskan adventure and would definitely come back again. A big plus is the fact that the grocery store is right next door, and we were able to cook our own food.
