We enjoyed our stay. I’ve never stayed at a B&B before so I have no comparison but Bear Lake was great. The location was convenient to our Seward activities, the House was clean and the kayaks and ice cream were a great touch. Margie was...More
This was our first time at a B&B so we can not compare to other places. We ultimately needed a place to stay for a few nights.
Our stay was enjoyable. Clean and tidy!

The best time in the whole state to see the Northern Lights is January and February due to the cold temperatures. The storms pass through without leaving clouds and fog as often as they due in the fall. Weather plays a HUGE role into whether you see the lights or not. Typically, the further north you go - the better your chances are of getting to view them - that is why most visitors head to Fairbanks.
We would love to have you visit us in Seward - but counting on seeing the Northern Lights in Seward is very optimistic. The University of Fairbanks has a website for forecasting the Aurora - please reference their website for lots of information at the Aurora - Northern Lights! gi.alaska.edu/AuroraForecast
We are open in the winter months - please call and check to be sure we are planning to be around! Our winter rates are VERY good and Bear Lake is usually frozen allowing for xc skiing, snowshoe walks or snow hikes. The Alaska Sealife Center is open year round in Seward too. THANKS for asking! Pat
