It is hard to assess over the internet - you never know what you "might" be sold or actually get... coing from Florida, we had no references, but the owner was sweet as he could be over the phone and friendly.... What a gem this place is! We adored its hominess. 2 of us are Girl Scouts and we have NEVER seen showers and bath houses as wonderful as these in a "camping" experience! We loved the piped in music...the personal touches that the owner provided.. We stayed in Spring Cabin - right on the creek... Our 11 (girl) and 7 (boy) yr olds loved the Queen/twin bunk..they loved the freedom to explore outside. The owner was wonderful at answering their endless questions and listening to their exciting adventure tales of the day. They want to come back every year and bring their kids when they grow up. Be sure to ask the owner for tips on wildlife viewing. Thank you Alaska Creekside Cabins for making this a true family memory! And a great ending to my birthday clebration! A true highlight of our trip. Tammy, Marc, Callie, and Jackson

If you are expecting Ritz-like luxury this is probably not the place for you. In fact, you should probably reconsider coming to Alaska at all. But if you are looking for a more 'Alaskan' type of experience, Creekside Cabins is it! Perfectly located off the Seward Highway and about 90 seconds drive from the Salmon Bake, they are also convenient to the Safeway just up the road. Cabins are equipped with fridge and coffee maker and a cable/DVD setup, perfect for watching a movie after a long day of hiking. The Burl cabin, though small, was very comfortable. Though the bathhouse is in a separate building, it is an easy walk and each comes with a dressing room. Tim is a great host and was very accommodating when I fudged my arrival date. Creekside was EXACTLY what I was looking for.

Our 5 person family was ecstatic with the quiet serene accommodations by the river and the personal services of the owner Tim were outstanding. We watched an eagle swoop down and grab a duckling for breakfast. We loved the ability to experience a campfire by our cabin and feast on some tasty smores. We highly recommend Creekside Cabins to experience true Alaska and wished we would have stayed more than three nights. The Pond Family.

Our stay at Alaska Creekside Cabins was a true Alaskan experience! The cabins were comfortable with large log beds, a table, microwave, and fridge. Tim also stocks the cabins with hot tea, water, juice, and coffee. The bathrooms, showers, and sauna were very very clean and comfortable too! The fire spot right outside the cabin was just perfect! Tim provided us with wood and a tripod grill for cooking fresh halibut, salmon, and rockfish. The cabins are located along a creek that attracts all sorts of wildlife...salmon, ducks, moose, and even bears! We loved Seward, too! Our favorite town in the Anchorage area! Tim was very helpful and a great host! We stayed several places while in Alaska, and Seward and Alaska Creekside Cabins was definitely our favorite places! Thank you!!

Unfortunately we only spent a night at this great place - should have stayed three. Tim was fabulous - very helpful. We had a fire and ate fresh salmon (caught 7 hours prior) over the BBQ. We did a bit of the Lost Lake Trail which was great and of course, went to Exit Glacier but should have stayed and done more walks!

Great place to stay if your in Seward. My family of 6 stayed in two of the cabins. The location is perfect for those wanting to be surrounded by nature with close proximity to town. The owner, Tim went out of his way to ensure our stay was memorable. He even went as far as helping me scout the perfect location to fish for Reds!

We really enjoyed staying at Alaska Creekside Cabins and would not hesitate to stay here again. Our cabin, Burl, was really cozy and comfortable. The bathroom/toilet were a few seconds walk away and always very clean (I loved the radio being on! It's a great touch). Thanks Tim for all your help while we were there - especially for suggesting Jim Craig's flightseeing trip. It was totally worth it and I got to see my tidewater glacier! For anyone looking for great accomodation in Seward, stay at the Cabins.
