Absolutely a fantastic place to stay! The cottage has a breathtaking view of Resurrection Bay with snow-capped mountains. While eating lunch at the table, we saw a seal that kept surfacing the water. Salmon constantly were jumping out of water, and boats constantly were passing by. On our way back into town everyday we saw an otter who entertained us. The cottage is fully stocked with everything you need. We had trouble figuring out the heater. Sue came by immediately and got it going for us (Sue is a sweet lady). The cottage is a very charming and relaxing place that will enhance your Alaska vacation!
This cottage was gem with breathtaking views of Resurrection bay! We were a little surprised to find that the owner and host lived right next door and checked in frequently. And my sister was rudely greeted by a couple of crows who swooped in and knocked her on the head. But the view, charm, and comforts of the the cottage made up of it.
We were 2 couples for a three night stay at the cottage. For people from the southeast lower 48, the idea of sitting on your deck and watching whales and otters in the bay seemed unbelievable...but that is just what we did. The cottage is well stocked with spices and condiments. . The owner, Sue, was helpful with advice on what to see and do. I would say she is a collector so her cottage is full of fascinating memorabilia. I would stay there again if I were to visit Seward. We especially appreciated the washer and dryer.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights at The Cottage on the Bay! The location is the best in Seward, right on the water in the Lowell Point community. We enjoyed the fire pit facing the water each evening and watching all the sea life. We saw whales twice swimming by the cottage as well as otters and sea lions. Eagles flew by regularly as well. During the day, we enjoyed all the activities in the Seward area and then it was back to the cottage for a cozy evening. The beds are SO comfortable, and the cottage is roomy and homey with so much character! Sue, the proprietress is awesome-so helpful and hospitable. We felt like we made a new friend. We would love to go back to the cottage, and highly recommend it.
