“Loved our stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2011

We stayed 4 nights in the Salmon Creek Cabins in cabin #4. We really enjoyed ourselves and were very pleased with the cabin. We loved the rustic appearance of the cabin, but also really appreciated all the modern amenities. The cabin was very comfortable and cozy and extremely clean. We loved the picture window facing the forest. Another great plus for us was the onsite laundry facilities. The owners thought of everything. We loved our stay in the cabin and would stay there again if we were ever in the area.

Room Tip: There were 3 of us and we were very comfortable.

The cabin we stayed in was very nice. The decor was cute and fit in with the idea of Alaskan decor. However, the only heating in the place was a small space heater. I didn't want to take a shower because the cabin was so cold. I'd sit in my jeans and sweatshirt under the covers on the bed to stay warm. I'm not referring to the middle of the night either- it was afternoon. I don't know how they can have such little heating in a place known for it's cold. I would only go back if they got some decent heating.

We stayed (4 adults) for two days and were very comfortable and happy. The owners were very accomodating and friendly. Each night, they would stop by and chat for a few minutes about our day and what we could do the next. The cabins were smaller than we expected and we moved to the larger cabin when we arrived. On whole, a very nice place to stay if you like a rustic setting. We would definately stay again.

We stayed here for four nights on our Alaska trip and enjoyed every minute. This little cluster of cabins is close to town and attractions, yet the temperate rain forest is outside your window. Kenai Fjord boat tours, restaurants, Exit Glacier and dog sled tours are only minutes away. Cabin owners are helpful, yet the place is very informally run, (you leave a check in the guest book when you leave), which suited us just fine. (Note that NO credit cards are accepted except to hold your reservation.) The laundry building was extremely convenient (you just add the per load charge to your check when you leave). The cabin was beautifully decorated, Alaska style, complete with moose antlers and snowshoes. An outdoor fire pit area is available to use. A welcome chalkboard with our names on it by the cabin door told us right where to go upon arrival. There is a microwave, coffee maker and fridge so you can manage a few meals, but no true "cooking" facility.

I'm writing this review to counter the glowing reviews of some others. This was not our favorite place. We like rustic, but this was just below par.
We found our large cabin rather cramped for four people. We found the lighting inadequate. How could you stand it there when it is not the height of summer? The imitation black lace on the windows was depressing. One of the first things we did was remove all the scent bottles from the cabin. The shower was impossible to regulate. There was a small fridge. A table with four chairs. No comfortable place to sit other than the beds.
When we arrived there was no one around. We found the key eventually. There was none of the basic info you usually find. We had no idea how to get more coffee etc.; luckily we ran into one of the owners the next day.
On the plus side it was clean, and in a pleasant area. But I wish I hadn't believed the glowing reviews.

We stayed at another B and B in very cramped quarters and had an open night not knowing if we'd be in Seward or Sodotna. Asking around, a referral was made at the last minute to Salmon Creek Cabins. What a pleasant surprise! Best rate by far, better furnished, cleaner, more friendly (thanks for the moose sausage sample!), and much better facilities. Next time we go fishing out of Seward, we know where we need to book!

We traveled with our group of kids and their friends aged 14-21 and couldnt have asked for a better atmosphere!! Jim and Betty left the light on for us as we arrived late and were quick to introduce themselves and answer any questions we had. The laundry facility was AWESOME and the cabins cute and cozy. We will for sure stay here again and cant wait to be back!
