“The most incredible view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2011

My husband and I went on an Alaskan adventure for our 35th anniversary. It was our great fortune to find the Paddle Inn on line. After reading SO many positive reviews it was an easy decision.

We stayed in the Low Tide Room for three wonderful days and nights. It more then met our expectations. It was nice to be a bit away from town and the view from the porch and front window was incredible. We loved the shower and breakfast treats and the picnic table on Resurrection Bay.

We loved having our privacy but the owners were right next store if we needed anything. We greatly appreciated our late checkout!

It is a long way from Wisconsin but I think we will be back.

The high tide room is a romantic work of art. Loved preparing our breakfast with the supplied ingredients, loved the granola-yummy! Beautiful watching the sun, birds, wildlife from our expansive windows. Bathroom tile work was gorgeous. A lovely location to relax but close to Seward for activities. Hiking and laundry nearby. Wonderful location for relaxation, quiet and solitude-great for recharging the batteries.

We stayed in the High Tide room. The room was wonderful, bed comfortable, and the views were unequaled. It is located a short walk from a landing where you can take a guide sea kayak tour or charter fishing trip. A short 2 mile drive from the City of Seward and all that it brings with it. I would suggest this to anyone looking for a great place to stay for a romantic get-away or a nice place to relax.

We stayed here for 2 nights while staying in Seward. What a gorgeous place! We did not get a chance to talk to Alison (one of the owners), but did have the opportunity to talk with Alan upon our arrival and he was very nice. We didn't, however, see him the rest of our stay. If you are looking for a non-intrusive B&B this is it.

We stayed in the High Tide room which is absolutely gorgeous. The view is amazing! The room was extremely clean and the bed was HUGE. The mattress could be replaced because every time my husband moved at night I woke up from the squeaking.

I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone staying in Seward.

The place is in pristine condition. The design and craftsmanship are wonderful and make Alaska Paddle Inn a welcoming home. Alan and Alison were very helpful. They booked a tour of the Kenai Fjords for us, which we loved. We grilled fresh fish on 3 nights using their grill and ate our dinners at the picnic table while taking in the view of Resurrection Bay. We made waffles for the kids using the mix they provided and ate yogurt and granola which they also provided. The only drawback is that our stay has to end. We will all remember our incredible five nights in this haven.

Room Tip: There are only 2 units. Book early!

We hit town and then drove through, with growing anxiety, past a shipwrecked boat and an abandoned train car, on a gravel slip of a road. Then we arrived. Wow. This was an experience of falling in love with someone who grows more and more dear with every minute. We stayed in the low tide room with our two kids. The kids opted to sleep on air beds in the living room area and said they had fantastic nights of sleep. The view is astonishing. The front picture window earns that phrase...PICTURE window. Hard to imagine this is real. View of the snow capped mountains and ever changing body of Resurrection Bay. The owners are fantastic, kind, considerate, helpful, nonintrusive, and warm. We dined on the picnic table bay-side and grilled fish caught an hour earlier on a nearby fishing charter. What an amazing and unforgettable stay.

Awesome! Its exactly how all the other reviews read. The only problem we had was that the next night we had to stay at the Holiday Inn because the Inn is so busy that we had only one incredible night to enjoy the Low Tide Room. Very clean, very comfortable and very unique. My boyfriend and I took advantage of the fireplace, trying to figure out what we could spot from the front window while playing a fun game of Yahtzee.

Food options are limited in the direct area but it takes 10 minutes to get into town. We had a cooler with us to snack on things. Can't wait to go back and spend more time there.
