The king bedroom was spacious with great views of Bear Lake. Breakfast was tasty, and Pat and Dennis and staff were extremely helpful. Loved using their kayaks on Bear Lake. Felt like I was in another world on the lake!

David - very nice to read your review and know that we ticked all the right boxes for you and Fawn! We feel our location is truly special and we appreciate hearing the same from our guests. Hope that our "other world" will call you both back for a visit in the future. I know Dennis would enjoy more conversations...

My husband & I arrived in Anchorage & drove directly to Seward to Bear Lake....it was a perfect introduction to our first trip to Alaska....incredible surroundings....overlooking lovely little lake & mountains. Property was spotless and accommodation excellent Would recommend to anyone...it is on outskirts of Seward but only about a 10 minute drive to everything.

Happy you found us a great beginning to your Alaskan adventure. I'm hoping the rest of your stays in Alaska were a pleasant and comfortable as you found our accommodations to be.

Had a great time staying here. Loved the kayaks and the lake right out the back door! The breakfasts were great and there was plenty of food. If you are a picky eater, just tell them and they will accommodate requests. But without telling them they have lots of options. Everyone was very friendly, talkative and nice!

Thank you for mentioning some good points for future guests. We are close to Seward, but yet not in the city limits. This gives guests a nice savings on sales and bed taxes - an 8% difference for staying 3 miles from the city limits! The added peace and quiet is worth the 10 minute drive to the boat harbor...

My husband and I enjoyed a 3 night stay at the very comfortable Bear Lake Lodgings. The home is located on a lovely lake in a quiet neighborhood outside of Seward. The first night we had a room with a shared bathroom, not a problem. The next two nights we had the very spacious King suite that was worth the...

It's very good to hear that the lower priced two rooms on the third floor worked well for guests. The two rooms share a bath, which is not the first choice for most travelers. The impute about it not being a problem is good for future guests to juggle when coming to stay with us - those rooms are a...

Wonderful location on Bear Lake with a bald eagle's nest on the property. The rooms are comfortable and Deloha made us feel at home and provided a delicious breakfast. Yummy hand dipped ice creams are served every night. Luckily the weather broke long enough for us to use the complimentary kayaks for a short ride on the lake. Overall a...

Eagles are found throughout Alaska, but we are so excited to have a nest in easy view from our home. We have been having fun following them nesting and now able to see the baby eaglets (2) in the nest and watch the parents feeding them - viewing through our spotting scope on a tripod for all to use.
