This was our final stop on a recent trip to Alaska. It was our favorite place. The innkeepers were congenial and helpful, the inn itself was spotless, the breakfast was outstanding and the scenery was breathtaking. We saw mountain goats on one mountainside, Dall sheep on another, moose along the road and salmon in the streams. A peaceful and restorative “base camp” for exploring a large area of the Kenai Peninsula.
I don’t usually write reviews unless we have an exceptional stay. We had an exceptional stay here. Teal was very welcoming and showed us around the property when we arrived...fantastic grounds and wonderful fully equipped kitchen and sitting area for the use of guests. The fridge stocked with fresh milk, juice, and yoghurts for use by the guests was very much appreciated. Also little bowls of chocolates were a thoughtful touch, There are only four rooms so the place is very peaceful and not at all crowded. The room (#1) was incredibly spacious and comfortable with beautiful views from 2 sides . Very comfortable bed and cozy private bathroom with incredible views and snuggly towels. Breakfast was served at 8:30 - each room had their own socially distanced table in the common area. The food was home cooked and delicious with fresh ingredients and you helped yourself to tea and coffee from the kitchen. Overall can’t recommend it highly enough...if we ever go back we’ll definitely stay again...it was one of the highlights of our trip.…
What a lovely property! We had room #4. There were 3 of us so the extra bed was perfect. The room was large and well maintained. The balcony overlooks the mountains. The Inn was perfect. Located very close to Seward yet distinctly away! The breakfast every morning was delicious. The Innkeepers are very friendly and attentive. The tennis and basket ball courts on site are just perfect after a day of site seeing. Plan on going there again next year. The entire area is very pretty.
We have a very lovely and relaxing time at the Inn at Tern Lake. We had room number 1 - which was very large and had a king sized bed, couch, and balcony. The bed was very comfortable (a must for me!). We stayed for 3 nights and each breakfast was delicious - we especially enjoyed the Crème Brûlée French Toast! The day we were checking out - we had to leave the Inn at 0700, so Teal packed us a “to go” breakfast. It was yummy and very much appreciated. On our 2nd day staying at the Inn, we learned our upcoming “land tour” portion of our cruise had been cancelled but the “cruise” portion was still a go. We now had 6 open nights remaining before joining the cruise ship in Whittier. Fortunately, we were able to extend our rental car and Teal came to the rescue with lodging! Although the Inn, was booked, she coordinated lodging at her sister’s Air BnB and also at the Inn’s Guest House. We were so lucky for Teal to help us with lodging during the busy summer season. We highly recommend staying at The Inn at Tern Lake - so peaceful and comfortable!…
We stayed one night here during our 16 nights in Alaska exploring over 1800 miles via vehicle and this was the most uncomfortable/ lousy breakfast stays of all the spots we visited. The breakfast was served ICE COLD to my children and I, it was some sort of French toast and strawberries with keilbassa. Keilbassa for breakfast ice cold 😳!! No drinks were offered or served to us. We made our own drinks in the k- cup machine. For over 250$ for one night for one adult/2 children it is extremely sub par. In addition, this “lake” that it is on is ankle deep and covered in alge in the water! Beware of swimmers itch getting in that water! VERY UNFORTUNATE find for a rock hard bed, lousy uncomfortable sheets and ice cold breakfast. 😩 NOTE:The location is right off the main road as well so if the windows are open all you hear all night is cars going by !!!!…
We had a GREAT stay here, the property and lodging was BEYOND my expectation. For such a remote area of Alaska, Jeff & Rose have created a beautiful (and ohhhhhh so clean) get-a-way for guests. The breakfast was delicious, hearty but healthy with a snack to take on the road too (freshly baked goods with original recipies from Rose). The common area is the best I have seen in my years of travel: clean, modern, EVERYTHING you could need including unopened milk & OJ in the fridge for guests. Even when i had a bit of an issue with my overall travel plans, Jeff went went beyond kindness to offer assistance. They run the property as a family, and they knocked it out of the park. If you're still reading this review, PLEASE book your stay with them!
This is a gem in a land of many amazing things. The Inn is SPOTLESS, comfortable, welcoming, peaceful, beautiful, fun and affordable! Rose, Jeff, Teal and Ruby work hard to make your stay perfect. They feed you a wonderful breakfast of homemade food daily, coffee and tea. They give you great tips about the area. There are activities for kids- Tennis, B-ball, Golf, Paddle boats and a beautiful view. Also, homemade cookies every evening....... woot woot!! We had 2 rooms and they were clean, comfortable and we all slept well. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Inn at Tern Lake for anyone that wants to enjoy their visit to the great state of Alaska.
Stayed here for a friends wedding, could not be happier with how everything turned out. Very well ran, food was incredible, and the family that owns it are fantastic people! You will be well taken care of. The location is unbelievably gorgeous. Very close to multiple hiking trails. Would highly recommend.
This was a hidden gem! Loved the house and the location! It was quiet and very cozy! I would definitely come back!! The host was great, great communication throughout the stay! It’s only 30 minutes to Seward and 60 to Keanu/ Soldotna.
Lovely inn on a small private body of water, natural setting, large and well appointed rooms. Home-made cookies and coffee, tea or hot chocolate in the evening. Great recommendations for local sites from the owners who have deep roots in the area. Delicious breakfast. One of the nicest places we stayed!
