“Delightful”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We only had the pleasure of staying in Wolf's Den cabin for 1 night but we were very impressed and highly recommend Box Canyon Cabins. It was competatively priced for tourist season but if booked early enough had pleanty of availability. There were only 2 of us, for a 2 bed room cabin so we had pleanty of room. The cabin was cozy, clean and well stocked with towels, dishes, pancake mix, ect. There was no problem getting in and the internet, and tv worked as described. The bed was comfortable and we even used a game from the office that was provided free of charge. It was off the beaten path and a couple miles away from Seward but if you have a vehicle there shouldn't be any problem. I am a person that often makes decions on where to stay and what to do based off of others' reviews and I give this place an A++. I would love the opportunity to stay again in the future, and highly recommend it to others who are looking for a place to stay.

We booked both of the one bedroom cabins for several days over the 4th of July 2013. Beautiful quiet woodsy location, great wifi connectivity, nice laundry facilities. We are active between hiking and fishing so we appreciate new towels every day and we appreciate the peaceful surroundings. Exit glacier up the road, not to miss. Lost lake TH 15 minutes away. I research ALL our bookings, read reviews, and the negative situations were explained with the response back. I had contact with both owners and nothing but friendly, professional info. AND any emails I sent prior to our stay were answered within several hours. The ONLY constructive criticism is the eagles nest had like one steak knife / knife in the silverware drawer. We just shared as we loved the gas grill too.

We stayed here for one night during our trip to Seward recently. My favorite part of the cabin was the kitchen, it was neatly stocked. Other than that, nothing stands out in this place. The couch was dirty.When we pulled out the couch to sleep, there were socks on it left over by previous guests I think.We were not comfortable sleeping up in the cellar, wish it had a little window or something. It was an okay stay for one night.

We are sorry you found some socks left inside the futon when you opened it. Unfortunately when the cabin was cleaned the crew did not open the futon to check it. We wish you had called us, we would have come over and re-cleaned the area for you.

This was a great place to stay! Very cozy and comfortable. I would definitely recommend anyone staying here. There was pancake mix and oatmeal available, and also a propane grill that my husband used to grill the halibut I caught one day. Nice laundry facilities as well. You will enjoy it here.

We stayed in the Wolfs Den cabin from July 2nd to the 7th. The cabin was cozy and comfortable. Everything was clean and it was stocked with everything you needed to cook. There was complimentary breakfast supplies and coffee and tea available as well. Towels were changed daily and the crew was friendly and available if you needed anything. The pond grill and fire pit area is a nice bonus for evening dinners outside. There is laundry available at cost and free wifi. The town if Seward is a 5 min drive away and exit glacier is 10. A must see and at no cost. Definitely enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend staying here.

Having booked blind 9 months in advance from across the ocean, we were very pleased with what we found at Box Cayon Cabins. It is a bit off the beaten track and all the more attractive for that. The setting is deep in a secluded forest where an oasis has been created. A little bridge crosses a stream which comes from a pool area with a peaceful watefall. Evenings by the fire pit are a great way to unwind and meet new people after a days activity. We stayed in the Bear's Den. A fine size for 4 friends. Beautiful view. Laundry room on site helpful...keep your quarters! Just a wee drive to Seward and access to many natural wonders. A treat and a very memorable stay.

Room Tip: Bear's Den gives a lovely view over the pond.

I have stayed here in 2007. Loved it then and love it now. Some basic food supplies are included, coffee,coffee filters,syrup,pancake mix,oatmeal and cold cereal. There is a Safeway grocery in town, make sure to sign up for a Safeway card at the store this gives you the lower price. It is a free card. Liquor store attached, good selction. It is a very peaceful quiet place. Fire pit area is awesome. Met some of the other people staying in the cabins, great conversation area. Your cabin will get fresh towels and garbage changed daily. As noted in brocure linens get changed after so may days of your stay. Free wi fi and cable/dish tv. I stayed in the Peterson Cain this visit,no complaints. It is a loft so it is smaller than the others.
It is a short drive into town and a short drive to Exit Glacier. If you are planning on a fishing charter, Safeway is open early to get a breakfest burritto $2.99, it is a good portion of food, gets you thru the morning. You can order a day in advance and set pick up time. They also do this for lunch.
