“top shelf awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

much better than the typical hotel, you get away from the typical tourist, and get your own little space to call your own... I would suggest a few wall mounted hooks to help keep you back packs off the floor... the entire experience was top shelf awesome ... I wish we could have stayed here all week, next time that will be our plan... only regret:: i wish we had stopped and taken a pic of those two balled eagles sitting on the dock poles near the dry dock area!! we were in too much of a hurry to catch our boat tour...

Room Tip: stay longer ... walk the beach later at night ... stay longer

We stayed at the cabin#1 for five days and we had a great time. The cabin is located near the sea and my kids had a great time at the end of each day watching the fishermen as they return from the sea and clean their catch in Miller's Landing "dock". Also, there is a wonderful trailhead at walking distance and it was one of the best hiking I have ever done.

The cabin was slightly small for five people but were comfortable. It was very clean and all appliances worked just fine! It is equipped with all you need, including a grill. I will definitely come back.

Our kids and grandkids were staying at Miller's Landing RV park nearby and this was the perfect place for us. The cabin was spotless, everything seemed new and fresh, The host, a son of the owners, was friendly and helpful. The kitchen was well equipped, though we didn't use it. The cabin was perfect for us and our son, who appreciated his privacy in the loft. So many reviews of cabins at Lowell Point were negative, and we were delighted that we lucked out with our choice of Serenity Cabin #2.

Room Tip: All four cabins looked nice. We chose cabin #2, with a loft space for our son.

My husband, son, and I traveled from Massachusetts for a wedding in Seward, AK on June 29, 2013. We stayed in Cabin 1- The Bear! It was so clean and cozy. My son loved the loft! Thank god the Cabin provided us an iron for our clothes for the wedding. Also, they provide DVD's, (no local TV stations) a coffee maker, fresh towels, plenty of hot water for showers, and soft beds. We were within walking to the shore where we did some fishing, kayaking, and attended a beautiful wedding! The views were breathtaking! Friends at the wedding stayed at other local cabins and we heard complaints of musty smells, outdated furniture, or uncomfortable beds. We were fortunate that we selected Serenity by the Sea---if we ever visit Seward again, we'll stay here!!! Highly recommend!!!

HDarrow,

Thank you for the great review! Kids tend to love the loft, they seem to treat them like secret forts. ;) We're glad your wedding went so well and that you enjoyed your stay. We're looking forward to your next visit.

We loved this cozy, clean cabin located just south of Seward on Lowell Point. Despite being in a wooded area near other accommodations, we found it to be very quiet. The bed was comfy and the cottage was clean and updated. There were a few nice "extras" like popcorn and oatmeal. We liked that it was slightly out of Seward and close to the kayak rentals (we used Sunny Cove and LOVED IT!). We wished we could have stayed here longer and would definitely stay here again.

Abigail,

Thank the kind words about the cabins. We try to go out of our way to make the cabins as comfy and homey as possible for our guests, because that's the way we'd want to find a cabin if we were staying. We're looking forward to seeing you again! Be sure to remind us you're a returning guest and we'll be sure to take extra special care of you.

Very lovely cabins, well appointed, clean and adorable. Loved staying here rather than in town. Just steps to the beach and it felt like you were in the woods of Alaska rather than in the midst of a tourist town. Hosts were extremely friendly too!

We crammed four people into a tiny cabin and it suited our needs. The loft was quite cozy, best suited for children but we put two adults in it just fine. They provided a dog bed and treats for our furry friend! The cabin was neat and clean and the people friendly and helpful.

After reading the welcome/information book inside of the cabin we were nervous about making any mess or using anything unnecessarily, as there were multiple additional fees listed for not sweeping, taking out trash or otherwise cleaning the place yourself before leaving... this made it a little uncomfortable and frustrating, considering we were paying decent money for the use of the space.

Also, just know that this is not within walking distance of Seward if that is what you are aiming for, but there is a nice beach nearby.

Thank you for your kind and constructive comments. We love furry friends and we're glad your dog enjoyed the bed and treat. We do apologize you were unnerved by our cleaning info. We do state in our cabin info there will be an additional fee for such things as smoking in the cabin, cleaning/storing fish in the cabin or excessive messiness. Occasionally we have guests who aren't quite as conscientious as folks like you and they can really do a number on our property. Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us and our future guests. We hope to see you again.
