Staying with Chrissy & D is like coming home. You feel welcome the second you step through the door. The house is beautiful, well decorated and kept in pristine condition. The rooms are spotless, the breakfast is amazing and both hosts are 100% dedicated to their guests. Great location too! We will be back for sure!

We spent a month in Alaska to see all of the national parks and stayed with Dee and Chrissy while we visited Kenai Fjords. When we arrived, Chrissy offered us the most delicious chocolate cake... what a great way to start the visit! The home was wonderful with attention paid to every detail. The breakfasts (and afternoon desserts) were fantastic. The hosts were fantastic and we can't wait to visit again.

My husband, adult daughter and I stayed two nights after our cruise and really enjoyed the accomodations, the breakfast and our lovey hostess (Chrissy) and her assistant. The suite was immaculate and tastefully decorated. Beds were comfy (even the sofa bed!). This was such a nice change-up from the cruiseship experience. Breakfasts were very creative and delicious. Nice little touches such as fruit-infused water and afternoon fudge or cookies really made it special. I cannot recommend this place highly enough! Among my favorite things was the selection of gourmet coffees and the coffee/espresso maker right in the room! It is best to have a car since this is a few miles out of town.

I stayed with Chrissy and D for 6 nights and it was amazing! They were super accommodating to all of my “out of the box” needs, they had great local knowledge, and served a different but equally delicious breakfast each day. Can’t say enough about the meals and mid afternoon snacks! Bell in the Woods Seward comes HIGHLY recommended for anyone looking to get the full Seward experience. I plan on returning and wouldn’t stay anywhere else!

We had a great time at Bell in the Woods! Chrissy was excellent as a host and clearly is intelligent and super friendly. The room we stayed in was really clean, quaint and nice. They come in and do a light cleaning each day which was nice. We stayed two nights and really enjoyed ourselves. Chrissy made a few recommendations in town for dinner which we appreciated and enjoyed!!! We had a breakfast that i'm still thinking about which was eggs in purgatory (something like that) with a delicious red sauce and cheese and just yumminess... Super clean, super nice people and really nice area. I hope we are able to come back to Seward and stay with Chrissy and D. Thanks for the great time!!!

Thank you for choosing the Bell and for your lovely review. Loved your comment about the eggs in purgatory lol! Those are called "italian eggs" made with D's homemade marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese on top after baking....that's my kind of purgatory egg as well! ;-) Please come back and visit us again soemtime. It was our pleasure to meet and host you! Until we meet again, take care of you.
