“A charming and surprising find”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

This was a most gorgeous setting about 5 miles out of downtown Seward. The cabins were incredibly affordable (perhaps the most affordable of many cabins we rented during our stay in AK). The setting, the architecture (both inside and out), the cleanliness, space...we would have stayed for many more days had we not had time restraints. They have done it right at the Abode Well Cabins...cannot praise this place enough, and cannot imagine anyone disappointed in this jewel. Our only fear is that as others discover these gorgeous cabins, the price will rise and availability decrease.

Room Tip: There are limited cabins -- perhaps 4 or 5. Quiet, and in the woods. There is only one cabin for fa...

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin--it was clean, quiet, and had everything we needed. The manager was very accommodating and the experience was very pleasant. We stayed in a different hotel our second night in Seward and regret that choice very much (we had booked in advance or we would have stayed at Abode Well Cabins again).

Our favorite place to stay on our trip!! As you drive into the property you know you are in for a special time! Ann the care taker is a gem! Cabins are very clean. Private bathrooms,small frige, coffe and teapots and microwave are a nice touch. Hope to go back again some time.

Room Tip: Cabin one is furthest from the entrance, so very quite.

This was our 3rd night in Alaska, we had been going non-stop! We checked in after watching the Mountain Marathon and enjoying the festivities. The Cabin was cozy and very clean. There was a fridge and microwave. The bed was SO Comfortable! I think we nearly crashed right away! We did have a late night visitor (huge dog) that guarded our cabin, he slept right on the porch! Would have loved to have stayed longer!

We headed to Exit Glacier the following morning, very quick 10 minute drive maybe.

We stayed for 3 nights in a couples cabin. The bed/mattress was wonderful, loved all the hot water for showers, the privacy & quiet was just what was needed this weekend. Loved the "howl le luja" chorus at night! Thanks!

We had the good fortune to stay in Cabin Number 6, Abode Well Cabins June 18-21, 2014. The cabin was very clean, extremely comfortable, and oh so quiet!!!! The setting for the cabins is absolutely beautiful with many huge trees and lots of plants. The first morning we awoke, we had two very small issues (coffee pot and hot water heater not working). The coffee pot was replaced immediately, and the hot water heater was repair just as quickly. Ann, the caretaker/cleaner was very helpful and kind. She gave us great recommendations and had created a book of information about the area. This was my favorite place we visited during our 2 week trip to Alaska. I was sad to leave and would return in a heartbeat.

Wonderful weekend in June 2014 at the Family Cabin. Great stocked kitchen with pots and pans! Clean and beds were very comfortable. Cozy living room downstairs w/bath. Two nice size bedrooms upstairs. Wooden shutters in bedrooms were GREAT for midnight sun!
Ann was so very helpful! I ask her about some flowers and soon she had a book telling about all the Alaska Wildflowers. I ask to borrow 1 tsp of baking soda for a recipe. She did not have any at the time, but the next morning a sack hanging on my door with the baking soda! Perfect for morning baking!
Bonfire pit is very enjoyable.
Hope to return!!!

Room Tip: Family cabin is only two bedroom cabin. All others were 1 bedroom.
