This was the best experience we have ever had at any B&B. We stayed here for 2 nights around end of May. Marlee is an excellent host and provides all sorts of helpful information and help to make the visit memorable. The house was really nice, clean and beautiful.
The breakfast was really enjoyable with all made to order dishes. It is one of the reasons our vacation became such a memorable one.

This was the best B&B experience I have ever had. We stayed here 2 nights. Marlee is the best! She wants you to have a great time and thinks of everything. It is very clean.The beds are very comfortable, the breakfast is delicious and most important, the overall feeling is so comfortable, like you are staying at a good friend's home. Marlee is very knowledgable and helps a great deal with advice on planning, etc. She even lent us warmer coats for our boat ride. I would definitely stay there again. I recommend it highly.

Marilee is very knowledgeable about Seward, not only the events, but also the merchants and vendors. Ballaine House is comfortable and charming, and the breakfast is made to order. The location is convenient to downtown activities and not a far walk to the harbor. She was extremely helpful when ours plans changed unexpectedly; she did so much more for us than just find us alternative accommodations, as she was booked full. Her hospitality was extended to us even when we were not her guests. Highly recommend Ballaine House and will make it my go-to lodging whenever I am in Seward.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great experience. Marlee is a superb host and is so friendly! She had lots of great advice for us and cooks a great breakfast. She also loaned us warmer coats for the glacier cruise and those were a lifesaver for us. The house is warm and inviting - it really felt like you were going home after a long day. Rooms are furnished with charming older furniture (but also have flat screen TV's and cable) and I loved the clawfoot tub in the bathroom. Everything is super clean. It is also a quick and enjoyable walk to "downtown" and the Alaska Sealife Center. Would absolutely stay here if in Seward again.

My husband and I just got back from two nights here. It exceeded our expectations (don't judge it by its out of date website, if that causes hesitation) and made our two rainy days in Seward very comfortable. Everything was clean and the host was extremely friendly and accommodating. The location was central to downtown Seward and everything was in walking distance. Marlee even loaned us some extra warm raincoats for our fjord trip! Will definitely book and stay here again on our next (hopefully sunnier) trip to Seward.

We spent two nights there and it was really nice! The house has some charm with some old style furniture in the rooms and bathroom.
Our host, Marlee, gave us lots of advices about where to go for eating or what activities to do. She even has restaurant's menus so that you can make you mind before even going there. She is moreover really up to date about the different places, what to order or not and so on. She was overall very helpful and lent us some warm jackets for our boat tour to the glaciers.
Finally, we have a very nice time chatting with her while having breakfast. Would definitely go there again.
