“If the Angels need a rest, this must be the place they choose....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Ressurection Bay is a beautiful body of water with wildlife and serene surroundings. We stayed two nights in the Heron View and found a very comfortable bed and a wonderful view. If you are able to reserve a waterfront cabin,take it! I went down to the beach the first morning and enjoyed the sight of a sea otter right off the bat. The property is extremely well kept and gas grills are available if you choose to cook. The owners are kind and there if you need anything but keep to themselves. DVDs are available and are a nice touch as the selection contains all of the possible things you might see in Alaska. We enjoyed some from places we had already visited like Denali and viewed others like the bears for an upcoming reservation. Don't miss the Sealife Museum in town. You will get up close and personal with puffins and much more.

Thank you SO much for your kind words! We really appreciate you as customers and so happy you enjoyed your stay and our property! Your review title is indeed how we feel about Resurrection Bay and the Seward Area. We hope Angels Rest on Resurrection Bay is a special spot for everyone to experience some heavenly relaxation. For future travelers, the waterfront cabins book up far in advance, so do be sure to book as early as possible to get the best choices of units (a year in advance is not too early, we already have a number of 2014 bookings). We are always nearby should guests need us; as you mention, we try not to be obtrusive :) Thank you again and we hope you'll have an opportunity to return some time!

“Fabulous views, beautiful cabins”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We spent 3 nights in Heron's Loft. Our "cabin" was clean and comfortable and the views were exceptional. We liked being close to but not in Seward and loved the peace and quiet of the location on the bay. Lynda was a phone call away when we had a question for her. There were books with recommended hikes, restaurants and things to do - very helpful if you don't know the area well.

Thank you so much for this review! The Heron Loft, one of our two mini-suite units, is a part of our larger Heron Roost building, across from our waterfront cabins. We're so glad you enjoyed the view and the peace and quiet! We strive to provide all the information available to make your stay and visit to the area as enjoyable as possible and Lynda is always available via phone, if not in person to help plan activities or answer questions. Thank you again! We hope you'll come for another visit in the future!

We also hope you'll visit us again for an Anniversary! By the way, the soap in the dispensers in the showers is a Dial brand "Hair & Body Shampoo." So, really no need to bring shampoo unless you have a favorite. We'll make a note in the paperwork so others will be better informed. Thanks for letting us know we need to clarify that point! Thank You again, Katharine!

“Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We enjoyed four nights in the Gatehouse Cabin. Great views. Comfortable bed. Nice viewing chairs. Cooked a little bit. Slept like babies. Very friendly owners. Wi-Fi was a pretty spotty in the cabin. Eagles and otters outside the windows. We would would stay here again. Hope to return someday soon.

We greatly enjoyed these guests and appreciate the review! The Gatehouse cabin is the furthest away from the wi-fi hotspot, which is why the signal can be a little spotty,depending on the guests' equipment ~ some equipment is better than others in terms of pulling the signal. If it's super important to be able to stay connected, smart phones work great! Except in some mountain passes, there's really good cell coverage in most urban areas of Alaska. 3G even! We also have a nice covered porch where guests can sit and use the wi-fi, if they have distance issues in their cabin or room. Thanks again for the post!
