Nice and very personal full service RV park just 18 miles from Seward, AK. We very much enjoyed the free of charge use of your 2 kayaks. Stayed here for 3 nights in our RV and really enjoyed it.Only your WIFI could have been a little bit better

Highly recommend staying at this gem on your way down to Seward or up to Anchorage from Seward. You'll love the little cabins in the woods with a kitchenette (keurig, pots 'n pans, mugs, utensils and toaster...) and bathroom. It was very clean and the location was simply beautiful! The cabin has a rustic feel and is cutely decorated. Access... More

We spent July 4th Weekend at Renfro's Lakeside Retreat. We were in the RV Park section of the property, and we had friends who rented a cabin. The RV park was situated among the trees and although it seemed when we drove in that the sites were close together, it was fine. We had electricity and water hookups and the... More

Easy location to the lake, extremely well designed cabins! Very clean and amazing staff!I would suggest to book any of these cabins for any stay near Seward. They have lots to offer and book it for a longer stay. I am sure no one can ever get bored with this place and this stay!

We loved this spot. Rented cabin #2 for one night and it was so special !! The view is incredible and we lingered outside around the fire .. Beds were comfy and kitchen is just enough. Would love a picnic table by the cabin to sit outside for meals. Thanks for a great last night in this gorgeous state!

We really enjoyed our stay in a lakeside cabin at Renfro's! The cabin was very clean and comfortable. It was also well stocked with everything we needed. We really enjoyed using the kayaks on property. The views around the cabin were stunning. We would definitely come back and recommend to all of our friends!

This was our first trip to Renfro's and Alaska. I don't think it will be our last trip to either one. I was not sure what to expect and was pleased to see that it exceeded all my expectations. I like my news but was totally okay with not having a television for the short two days we were here.... More

This property is located about 20 miles from downtown Seward, making for an easy drive for day trips. We stayed in our RV. This is a quite campground, surrounded by large trees and mountain views. The train tracks run through the property, but the sound of the passing passenger train in no way took away from the serenity of this... More

This is a very small RV park but with everything thing you could want. Great views, friendly service and good prices. Renfro's is the best we have found near Seward, we will be staying there next year!

This is our second time staying at Renfro's Retreat and again it was a wonderful experience. Beautiful cabins, property, and scenery. Gary was a delightful and very helpful host. We hope to return again in August with more visiting family members.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the heart of the Kenai Mountains, Renfro's Lakeside Retreat is located on emerald green Kenai Lake. Renfro's offers 8 cabins, five of which are located on the lake and the other three are located within 100 yards of the lake in the spruce trees. In addition to the cabins, we offer 10 r.V. Sites with both full and partial hook-ups. Renfro's offers spectacular views of huge snow capped mountains and a 30-mile long lake. This pristine retreat has the feel of true wilderness and yet is located 20 miles from Seward. This means you are situated within driving distance of the things people want to see or experience while in Alaska. ... more   less
