“Great Spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2009

The owners were friendly and welcoming, the lodge was fully furnished and felt more like staying at a friends place (a really nice place) with a great kitchen, comfy furnishings. Highly recommended, enjoy!

Comfortable, clean rooms with good beds, linens, and towels. House if very new and very clean throughout. Owners live onsite if any problems arise. Best part about the place is the kitchen for use by guests. If you are looking for a place to stay and be able to cook for yourself this is it. It is not in town if that is what you're looking for but it isn't far and the location is private and quite. Wendy and Dave are super friendly and helpful. There is both a computer and printer for use with an internet connection and a wireless network for your own machine.

We spent three nights of a 3-week Alaska vacation in Seward at the Bear Paw Lodge with Dave and Wendy and it was a fantastic experience! In addition to staying at the lodge, we booked a combo excursion: Day #1 was a guided hike on Exit Glacier and Day #2 was an all-day kayak trip to Ailiak Bay. Wendy made the booking process simple and she was very thorough with providing information.

The lodge has a rustic feel but with modern amenities and is kept super clean. We opted for the master suite upstairs and it was HUGE...plenty of room for us and our two adult children. The kitchen is roomy and ultra-organized. I can't imagine that there is a better place to stay in Seward.

Everything about this company is handled in a professional, yet friendly manner and I would not hesitate to recommend Bear Paw Lodge or KAW services to anyone. If we ever get back to Seward, Bear Paw will be my #1 choice!

This was the best place we stayed on our trip to Alaska this summer. The place is a beautiful log cabin constructed home with all the comforts of home. Watched movies, surfed the internet, grilled burgers, jacuzzied and threw sticks for the dogs. Very reasonably priced and short distance out of town in the woods. Would definitely go back again. Wendy was very helpful in answering all our questions about the area and also set us up for Kayak Adventures sea kayaking. A great area and place to stay.

  • Liked — Beautiful, comfortable house
  • Disliked — Breakfast was a nice continental style, not gourmet like some B&B's

The stay at the Bear Paw Lodge was a true icing on the cake!!!.It was like our second honeympon...Impeccable hospitality by the owners, gorgeous house and a love for service by the owners that was reflected in every inch n corner of the house. We just coudnt stop raving n ranting about our stay and were very unhappy that we stayed only for a night. A genuine suggestion- stay atleast 2 nights to do justice to your stay!!!!..Even our friends and family were amazed by the photos of the lodge. The hot tub outside was amazing..the two dogs were so lovely and the best part, was every meticulous detail regarding our stay was taken care of! Beginning from the welcome note that we recieved from Wendy-that was very thoughtful and helpful to maintain the decorum in the house. I could go on n on....all in all...I give it more the 5 stars-7 stars to our stay at the Bear paw lodge!!!!
