My husband, 2 daughters and I spent 6 nights at the Ballaine house. Bree, our host, was wonderful. She made a delicious breakfast for everyone each morning (pancakes, waffles, French toast, english muffins, omlettes, bacon, fresh fruit- there were so many great choices). She was very friendly, and helped the guests with planning hikes, boat trips into Kenai Fjords National...

Bree (the host) is an angel! She made our reservations for our Major Marines boat tour (with a discount) for us before we arrived. Once we got there, she then looked into the sea conditions to decide if we had chosen the best day for the boat trip. She got up early on our second day to accommodate our needs...

I stayed three nights in Seward to get myself in "vacation mode" before a week long camping trip. Well, I had such a great time, now I have to find an excuse to come back, and I'd definitely stay at the Ballaine House again. When I made my reservation with Marlee, I was also able to book a boat tour...

We stayed for a couple of nights in July 2015. Bree is an amazing host, very helpful with information about places to visit/eat. The room was well maintained. Breakfast was super (5 stars to the variety provided and the quality). Meeting fellow travelers from different parts of the world was also nice.

You know when you go on vacation, and you never really relax or feel quite at home in a place? The Ballaine House has all the comforts of home, and warm hospitality thanks to Bree. It's very centrally located so if you care to walk downtown or to the SeaLife Center, it affords enjoying the weather. I was impressed with...
