“Liked it, but not perfect”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

There are a lot of pluses about this place, and I'm sure I would have given it a higher rating had we had the upstairs High Tide room (it was already booked, even though I made our reservation 9 months in advance!). Loved the view, but it did include campers (the clear spot is just slighly offset from the big picture window). And the people above us often forgot about the Alaskan courtesy of taking off shoes at the door so we heard a lot of clomping around, and we heard a lot of dragging of heavy luggage or furniture, on both days. Many wouldn't even take note of this but we live in a quiet area so it bothered us a bit. But we enjoyed the view of Resurrection Bay,the big shower, and the waffle fixings for breakfast.

My husband and I had the privilege of staying in the High Tide Room for two nights and the Low Tide Room for one night in between our decadent stay at the Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge. We LOVED this Inn! Alan and Alison have thought of everything, we arrived after our very long day of travel from NJ to Seward, AK and immediately felt at home. No detail is overlooked, both rooms are super clean, spacious and inviting. Each has a fireplace, a very comfy bed, kitchenette, small dining area and an elegant bathroom with an amazing shower.

The owners are perfect, there when you need help or recommendations and not there when you want some alone/relaxing time...just perfect. Thanks again for helping us light the fire to enjoy some wine by Resurrection Bay on our last night that was one of our favorite low key memories of our entire trip.

We only hope to stay in Seward at The Alaska Paddle Inn again in the future, don't change a thing everything was perfect!!

We stayed in the upstairs room the nights of August 9-10, 2013, The upstairs room provides a very nice view of Resurrection Bay from its outside balcony as well as the inside living area. We found the inside living area extremely comfortable with a large comfortable bed, a nicely decorated bathroom. a small kitchen area which we used for breakfast the two mornings we were there and a gas fireplace (we did not use). The kitchen came stocked with several varieties of breakfast cereal, yogurt, tea and coffee. There is also a small area right on the bay with a picnic table that guests can use to get a great view of Resurrection Bay, have breakfast or lunch, or just build a fire.We briefly met the owners who seemed like nice people and had a genuine concern for our comfort. All-in-all we feel we got great value for our money and would not think of staying anywhere else on a return trip to Seward.

Room Tip: Upstairs room has a great view of Resurrection Bay.

I stayed in the upstairs room on August 3rd, 2013. The room had the coolest shower I have ever seen, complete with an open, arched doorway and a window. The shower alone makes the stay worthwhile. Add to that the great view, low-key owners, and the other unique decorative and architectural features of the property, and you really can't go wrong booking here.

Stayed 2 nights in July in the high tide room. Rating speaks for itself. For the first timer to Seward, I would not describe as a short walk into Seward. We drove. Furnishing's were excellent with all amenities of a home. We could have stayed longer. View from the porch is great; improved by wine and cheese.

We stayed in early July (two couple in both rooms)...and it was just ideal for us. It's much more like renting a private cabin than a B&B...which is perfect. Alan was a great host...and a talented carpenter. We stayed for 3 nights and would recommend this place to anyone traveling to the area.

We stayed in Alaska Paddle Inn for 3 nights, in the high tide room.
We really enjoyed the Inn, specially the views and the room by itself. My wife and I will never forget about this place, because views from the room were incredible.
It´s easy to get to, and next to some famous hiking trails.
Owners were also very friendly, and they came to salute us, and to know if everything was ok.

It´s true that is not cheap...but...it deserve the opportunitty to be discovered.
Ahhhh no TV!!! Just a radio...we discovered Kway radio station there...
Thank you for having such a terrific Inn in Seward!!
(And we really loooooooooooooved Seward!!!!!)
