“Top-Notch B & B”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

How disappointed we were with ourselves for only allotting one night's stay at this stupendous B & B. Everything was perfect - the location on the edge of Bear Lake, the solitude, our suite, the common areas, breakfast, the evening ice cream treat.... More importantly - Ginny: most welcoming, most gracious, most helpful, and an absolute delight to converse with. Unfortunately we only got meet Pat as we were departing but our few minutes with her told us she also absolutely delights in taking care of her guests and making sure you enjoy her B & B, as well as the whole of Seward, to the maximum. Do not pass up staying here if you are in the Seward area.

Room Tip: The Bear Lake Deck Suite is the cat's meow! Perfect for a couple, and a separate little 'be...

In my opinion, this was the ultimate B&B. The hosts were gracious and warm, and very interesting. They offered many great tips. The B&B was excellently equipped - and extremely well organized and run. They thought of EVERYTHING that a traveller would need in a B&B. Canoes for use on the lake; a book of restaurants, and another of attractions and maps. We were at home in the awesome kitchen. Breakfasts were terrific and varied from day to day. Even the pottery was outstanding! I loved this place. Oh yes, and the complimentary specialty ice cream @ 8 PM was just the icing on the cake!

Just go! On Bear Lake, a serene lake where BLL will let you use kayaks or canoe( if available and not already used by someone else) to explore BL and try your hand at kayaking. A great breakfast-not to miss! And I can't forget to say you get complimentary ice cream treat at 8:00pm-a nice time to meet other guests and have a wonderful ice cream bar-hand dipped in some great chocolate! Clean, good location, nice folks-you get what you pay for in Alaska-so be wise and pay for a nice experience. Genny is a great host.

Room Tip: Nice view from upstairs rooms. Don't know about downstairs rooms.

Loved our two nights at BLL - especially kayaking on the lake, the great breakfasts and ice cream evening treats, the Bear Lake Deck Suite being so perfect for three people, and the comfort/beauty of the bedrooms and public deck/lounge.

We stayed there June 6-9, 2012.
It is a very lovely setting and kayaking the lake was relaxing and had a beautiful view of
snow capped mountains. The kayaks and canoe are there for your enjoyment.
The room was very clean the the bed comfortable. Our hostess was a family friend working
there for the summer. Ginny (sp?) was great, made you feel at ease and made some wonderful
breakfasts.
The owner Dennis had some real interesting stories of his encounters with wildlife. His wife Pat was also very friendly accomadating.

We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: stayed in the Lakeside suite, has deck and view of the lake

The place, hosts, innkeepers, furniture and facilities were excellent.
Even the food (homemade breakfast & ice cream) was great (for US standards).
The beds were very comfortable and we had a good sleep.

I enjoyed going out on bear lake with one of the kayaks.

We really loved our 4 night-stay with Pat & Dennis (hosts) and Ginny & Sam (innkeepers). If returning to this area we will choose Bear Lake Lodgings B&B for sure.

The home is situated on a beautiful lake. It is quiet, the room was great, the owners friendly and welcoming. We will almost certainly return to the area, and when we do we will book at the Bear Lake Lodgings.
