My dad and I stayed in Cabin #4 for one night. It was supposed to be two nights, but the front end of our plans got messed up by weather. After seeing my name on the chalk board outside the door (great personal touch!!) and opening the door to this beautifully appointed little cabin, I wished we could have had more time there! Don't delay, book these cabins. Minutes from Seward, SUPER quiet wooded setting, and everything inside our cabin was perfect. Comfortable beds, spotless bathroom, everything you need. LOVED IT!
We really enjoyed our stay in these cabins. We liked the rustic decor, and they’re located in a quiet area not far from town. Very nice friendly owner who lives onsite as well. The small building on site with shared laundry facilities has DVDs you can borrow at no cost, as well as plates, cups, napkins, bug spray and just about anything else you may have forgotten. This was the second time we stayed here (the first was in 2003), and we’ll stay here again if we’re ever back in the area!
I stayed in Cabin 4 for four nights. What a beautiful place to call home for my visit to Seward! The cabin is like a small apartment for two people; it could definitely fit 3 comfortably. The refrigerator and microwave make it easy to buy food from the Safeway supermarket down the road to feed yourself on the cheap as a visitor for a few days (no stove or oven though). The bathroom is very nice, though the cabin runs off a very small electric hot water heater, so two people taking back-to-back showers will leave you out of hot water quickly. The whole place is also very quiet. I highly recommend staying here!
Perfect location just outside of Seward, 5 minute drive. Great set up, everything we needed, comfortable, great water pressure in the shower, glacier water table makes for terrific drinking water. The cabin beds were very comfortable and the place was spotless. Came complete with a super friendly, extremely well trained dog, Ruger. Jim, the owner, came by each day to check on us, offering guidance/recommendations on anything we had questions about. The kitchenette had a nice table, chairs, microwave, coffee pot with coffee and tea supplied, kitchen towel and wash cloth, knife, cutting board, large bowl, nice size mini fridge (about 3 feet tall) with a small freezer. On the deck there is a Weber grill, but with the burn ban we couldn’t use it. We could use my son’s small camp stove (something you could turn off as soon as you were done cooking to avoid more forest fires).The bathroom had towels, washcloths, shampoo/body wash, hand soap and toilet paper. The view from the window is beautiful too. We were extremely happy we stayed here and would highly recommend it. …
Week and a half on the road Mary just had to have a shower so last minute called the first cabin that popped up in the google search. We lucked out they had room for us. When we pulled up to our very cute two story hand crafted cabin we were extremely pleased. I didn’t have high expectations for the low price we paid. Pulling into the drive noticed our names on the front of the cabin made us smile for sure. Had all sorts of items that made our night nice like a microwave, and a old dog sitting on our porch...felt like home:) the family that owned it was super pleasant. There was a shower, laundry, and it was very clean. Would go again. Only downside was a small water heater so make sure you take the first shower.
One of the best cabins we have stayed at - clean, cozy and convenient: Clean - Super clean cabin with nice bathrooms (towels/body wash provided). Cozy - Sometimes its harder to find cabins just for a couple vs. easier to find one for a family. But this was perfect for a couple or a family with 1-2 kids. Convenient - All our activities in Seward were very close of a drive from these cabins: Waterfront (cruises leave from here) - 7 min Exit Glacier - 20 min The loft up is such a cute addition to these cabins - might not be present in all. This was our BEST stay in Alaska.
We had a great time at the retreat on bear creek!!! It was perfect for a family of 3. Hot showers and a coffee maker. Oh yea.... and a hot tub!!!! Our hosts jim and Betty were great!!! The creek is right next to cabin and provides some fun fishing for those little Dolly Varden and rainbows. My daughter had a blast..... wanna see wildlife??? Then open your eyes!!!! Bears and eagles frequent the cabin almost daily. If your able to get a reservation your crazy for passing it up.
Salmon Creek cabins or a short distance from town which is great ! The husband and wife that take care of and run the cabins will make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need . You will not be disappointed and you will be glad that you stayed ! They are very clean and the beds are very very comfortable !
A lovely, secluded little hide-away! A tiny bit hard to find (and GPS is spotty in the area), but the hosts were gracious and the location was lovely. Right next to a stream with some little trails, we saw bald eagles nesting and baby eaglets learning to fly right by the cabin. It really felt like you were out in the middle of nowhere even though you are close to town. Quiet, clean and very comfortable
Our small family stayed at the Retreat on Bear Creek on July 25, 26, and 27, 2017, as part of a 10-day Alaskan adventure. Though we were quite happy with all our lodging choices, the Retreat was most certainly the best of our trip. After a long day trip from Tok, AK, we really needed something special to finish off our day. The Retreat could not have been more perfect. We arrived late in the day, very tired. And what did we see? A cuter than cute log cabin, tucked amongst tall trees; a chalkboard welcome sign by the door, with our names on it (very nice touch); an immaculate and cozy interior; everything we could want for amenities; a hot tub that was all ours (no sharing with strangers, like one is forced to do at motels); a gurgling brook (Bear Creek) nearby; and as much peace and quiet as anyone could want. We used the Retreat as home base while we took a boat cruise into Kenai Fjords National Park (the 7.5 hour Major Marine Cruise was amazing), ziplined with Stoney Creek Canopy Tours, checked out Exit Glacier, and walked around Seward. We are so thankful to have found the Retreat -- sleep came easily, and we were well rested each day. How can you put a value on relaxing in a clean hot tub in the dark, with a little salmon stream bubbling cheerfully a stone's throw away? The owners had added some nice touches to the cabin, but most importantly it was spotlessly clean. We were a little confused in the booking ... apparently there are the Bear Creek Cabins, not too far away, but unrelated. We have no experience with them, but the Retreat at Bear Creek (which is associated with Salmon Creek Cabins) was an awesome experience. Just be certain that you are booking the lodging that you think you are.…
