I have nothing but great things to stay about my stay at the Ballaine House B&B. From the initial email, Marlee was super helpful with information about traveling to Seward and Alaska in general. But once I arrived at the cozy B&B I was absolutely positive I chose the right place (thank you Tripadvisor!) It really felt more like I was staying with friends or a relative than at an B&B.
The place was easy to find, close to everything (right between the harbor and downtown) and when I arrived I was greeted warmly by Marlee. I was lucky enough to be her only guest for the first night of my stay in the Alaska "shoulder" season. I happened to be in Seward for a couple of days with TERRIBLE weather, and Marlee was extremely helpful in helping me make appropriate activity arrangements since my initial plan got rained out. She called around to all the tour companies to help find the best trip for my needs. When I returned from hiking Exit Glacier and riding the rough seas... I came "home" to a wonderful night's sleep in a comfy bed, and felt completely secure as a solo female traveler. The second night of my stay, Marlee had a full house, and the service and level of comfort was unchanged. I had no problem with noise from other guests, or access to the bathroom, etc. All this for significantly less money than the chain hotels in town!
I would whole heartedly encourage you to stay with Marlee at the Ballaine House, and I hope to be able to return myself when the weather is a bit better so I can take that kayak trip I had been dreaming about... :) Thanks Marlee!
