All the past reviews helped me not be surprised when upon our arrival no one was around to greet us. There were two doors, neither marked as the Inn entrance. We entered the first door and thought we had stepped into someone's home, so immediately stepped back out. Then we entered the second door and it was obvious we had... More

The place is well maintained, clean, slept well, and the food was good. Great place to kick back and wind down from any busy lifestyle. The wifi was questionable at best, it worked best on the main floor, but not so much in room 2 and not at all on the nice little deck.

The Inn at Tern Lake is the BEST B&B we have ever stayed at. Room 1 was very spacious, high ceilings and a deck overlooking a small lake. During our 2 night stay we saw 2 moose and one brown bear right from the deck. The Inn is beautiful. Very modern and well kept. Rose and Jeff, the owners, were... More

The Inn at Tern Lake was a welcome place to wind down after a busy week of adventures. The setting is beautiful and tranquil, yet close enough to Seward to be a great base for excursions. Jeff and Rose, the proprietors, have created a welcoming atmosphere that also gives you room to breathe. Stay here - you won't be sorry!

We should have stayed longer! This is such a lovely Inn, practically everything you could need, and so well looked after by our hosts. The breakfast was one of the best we have tasted in Alaska, while our host's comprehensive knowledge of the area caused us to change our travel plans for the day and enjoy the spectacle of salmon...

This bed and breakfast is on pristine, beautiful property with gorgeous views. Our room had a balcony overlooking a little pond with mountains Right behind the property. Our bed was very comfortable and there was a gas fireplace in the room. The hosts make you feel right at home and have a kitchen space for guests with everything you could... More

The only mistake we made in selecting the Inn at Tern Lake was not staying longer. This is an excellent location for exploring the east half of the Kenai peninsula and the hospitality provided by Jeff and Rose could not have been better. Rooms are generous with private baths and the grounds are spectacular. All capped by delicious, fresh breakfast.... More

My husband and I were just married here at the Inn at Tern Lake. From the moment we met Jeff (in February 2015), I knew this was our venue, but it was booked for our weekend in October. However, Jeff knew the group that was staying over the weekend we wanted, and they were regulars. He offered to ask if... More

Great location, the scenery was breathtaking. Rooms were very clean.. Breakfast was simple. Wifi did not work that great. Could of been because we were at the end of the lodge. Overall it was a pleasant experience. Would I stay there again, Yes.

We just spent a weekend at the Inn at Tern Lake celebrating a wedding. The location is spectacular... the white wedding tents were reflected in the pond and surrounded by mountains. The weather cooperated and the ceremony was outside on the spacious grass area in front of the rustic wedding bower. Owners Jeff and Rose were very welcoming and helpful.... More
