“A practical location with nice view.”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed three nights at this place. It is very clean and it has many amenities. 4 People can easily stay as long as they can share one bathroom. The place is very small but has everything that is needed for a comfortable stay.

“Cleans The word”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed in over 15 cabins and hotels all over Alaska " drove 4000 miles in Alaska" The bird house was by far among the very top of our list of clean, comfortable, quite places, ( my wife is a clean freak) When she says it is the clean, it means spotless) I would highly recommend the Birdhouse to anyone looking to spend the the night or nights at Seward!

“Everything you need for a comfortable stay.”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This cute cottage is well located and an easy walk into the historic part of Seward. Everything was very well organized, notebooks on how to use any appliance/ TV DVD, Internet etc. The kitchen was complete with full size refrigerator, gas stove and dishwasher and a washer and dryer with detergent. The house manager, Carol was very helpful and accommodating and gave great suggestions for coastal tours, hiking and places to eat. We had a wonderful stay here and we've stayed at many nice places with the help of Tripadvisor.

The birdhouse was a great place to stay in Seward. Everything is exactly as advertised, and is within easy walking distance of just about everything in Seward. The house is very clean, tidy, and loaded with tons of local information about things to see, restaurants, and other helpful tips. It truly was like staying at a home away from home. I would have no reservations in recommending the birdhouse to anyone looking for a great alternative to the other lodging options out there.
