“Absolutely could not have been more perfect”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This home is very well equipped and comfortable. We had a great, relaxing stay. There were eight in our family (teenagers to grandparents) and everyone had a fabulous time.

“Relaxing, fun, home like stay in Alaska”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We traveled to Alaska as an extended family group - ranging in ages from 3 to 63. Bear Paw Lodge was a great place for us to spread out and enjoy card games upstairs or have some quiet time downstairs. The kitchen was large and equipped so we could enjoy family meals. Comfortable bedrooms for us all. We enjoyed talking with Wendy who gave us tons of ideas about how to spend our days in Alaska as well as telling us about the history of the house and what it is like to live day to day in Alaska.

“Home Away From Home in this Rustic Beauty”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

Our family of 10 stayed at the Bear Paw Lodge during our visit to Seward for 8 nights this July and we absolutely loved it. You can't ask for two better hosts than Wendy and Dave (and their two adorable pups, Jax and Logan). From the time we sent the initial inquiry, to asking questions about Seward and getting back to us very quickly, they made the entire process incredibly easy. The lodge is the perfect size and has wonderful amenities. They even thought of the small things that really make u feel like you are home, like a welcoming plate of delicious chocolate chip cookies, q-tips, scissors, hair dryers, etc. Those small essentials were icing on the cake. Bear Paw was our "home" during our wonderful stay on the Kenai Peninsula and if we ever go back we would definitely stay there again. I would recommend Bear Paw to anyone looking good for a beautiful, charming, "home away from home" in Seward.

“Great place to stay! Great location!”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Bear Paw Lodge is a wonderful place to stay. We stayed here with 2 families and it couldn't have worked any better. The cabin is a very short distance from downtown Seward. The cabin is very spacious and stocked with everything you need. Wish we could have stayed longer. Wendy was amazing to work with and we felt right at home.

“Warm and inviting stay.”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Myself and 9 nieces and nephews stayed at Bear Paw for three nights. The home (and hosts) felt inviting. Very comfortable. Kitchen well equipped which was really nice as we ate at least 1/2 our meals there. Registration and confirmations easy. Hot tub was an extra pleasure.

Only downside would be if you have more singles than couples as most of the beds are queen size.
