We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of July. Situated on the outskirts of Seward on a mostly private lake. It was great to be 5 minutes from the town and have the peace and quiet of the woods and lake. The B&B lets you have use of their kayaks tp paddle around the lake. The lake is full of salmon so your chances of seeing a bear are good. We saw a bull moose come out for a drink one night. There is also a trail head at the end of the road. We walked it a few times but I would take bear spray with you. Ask the innkeeper for it, there was a lot of bear scat and tracks back there.
The breakfasts were lovely with a wide variety of options. There were also delicious hand dipped ice cream bars every night at 8.
The place was kept clean and the innkeeper was a good host and very personable. There was also a fridge for guest use in the garage which was nice.
There are some rules for the house such as quiet time after 10pm and breakfast only available for an hour.
The only thing I wish would have been available was laundry service.
