Where to stay in Alaska

This is a broad question i know.. but my husband and i are considering staying in alaska next year and i wanted to know what would be a great place to stay at thats surrounded by romance and activities galor! Interested in dog sleding, good food, perhaps a boat tour, and a trip to the glacier. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Staying for how long? To live or vacation? When? Why don't you share a bit more . . . . :)

Also, if just for a short vacation trip, it is not recommended that you "base" yourself somewhere and take day trips. Alaska is just too spread out to do that. 2-3 nights in one place, see the sights, take the tours, etc. then move onto the next location. Otherwise you are spending way too much time just in transit and backtracking. Also, basing yourself in one place eliminates lots of options that are just too far for a day trip.

True - but if they will be in Alaska for 10 days, I wouldn't recommend Seward for that long. Just sayin'. :-)
