Sunshine House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #9 of 46 Seward B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 25, 2011

Sunshine House is conveniently located in town, within easy walking distance of the main thoroughfare, and free shuttle stops. Marsha and Mike are wonderful, warm hosts, who provide a delicious breakfast. They're sensitive to dietary needs (vegetarian, lactose intolerant, etc.). Our room was spacious, very clean, and had an equally squeaky clean and large, bathroom. The lovely quilt on the bed was made by Marsha, and by the way, the bed was super comfortable. We really enjoyed talking with both Marsha and Mike, and learned so much about Alaska thanks to them. We highly recommend this terrific, homey, clean and welcoming B & B!

This B&B was located right next to Downtown Seward. We arrive late and were greeted by the hosts, Marsha and Mike. They were very friendly and accommodating to our travel plans and restricted diet. The room was very clean and home-y. They gave us great dinner recommendations and were there when we got back late. We spent a awhile chatting with Marsha and she helped us put together a Seward travel plan for the next day. She had to go to sleep at 10pm to wake early for another party that was waking up at 5am.

We had breakfast at 8am, and both hosts prepared sourdough pancakes, fresh fruit, and gourmet omelets breakfast. It was the perfect way to start the day. We spent approximately 2 hrs chatting with the hosts before we had to head out to sight-see.

By the time we left, we felt like family.

My wife and I stayed at the Sunshine House for our 15th anniversary. Mike and Marsha made us feel like we were part of their family. Meals were outstanding as was the company and conversations. Meals were casual and we hung out with the other guests and the hosts. Mike and Marsha gave us great insider information about restaurants and adventures that were near by. If we ever make it back to Alaska, we will schedule our trip around the availability of rooms at the Sunshine House!

Room Tip: Any room will be great! We stayed downstairs.

We had a great 2 nights stay at Sunshine House, after disembarking from our cruise. Mike and Marsha were fantastic and very "down to earth. They are very friendly and gave us local insight to a beautiful town. The view from the back deck is breathtaking. Both are fantastic cooks and we especially loved the salmon quiche for breakfast. The room was comfortable and the micro sheets were just heaven. We have recommended Sunshine House to all our friends. Mike and Marsha were very hospitable and we were disappointed that we were not staying longer.

We had to arrive very early on the day we were supposed to stay. We hoped to drop our luggage and walk around the town. The hosts were still serving breakfast to the guests from the night before and not only were they very gracious about letting us fill their living room with luggage, they insisted we join them for breakfast before we went out sight-seeing. Their concern is the bed and breakfast in B&B and both were wonderful. Breakfast is made to order and the bed was very comfortable. If you stay in one of the upstairs rooms with the antique quilt, please be careful-it was made by her grandmother. We used the comforter in the closet instead. These two teachers are slowly renovating this older home and some areas may seem lacking, but their hospitality and warmth more than makes up for any lack of amenities. They even took all four of us and all our luggage to our cruise ship the next morning. Within walking distance of the Sealife Center and downtown. Free shuttle around town is a block away. The library shows a film every afternoon about the earthquake-I think it's $3.00
