“Cozy & Quiet!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We loved our stay here! Our cabin was quaint & cozy and private -- which was perfect for us since we were traveling with an infant. We hardly ever saw any other guests - though they were there. We loved that though our cabin was dry, that it had electricity, loved the little boardwalks over the creek, the dark curtains in the cabin to help us sleep & the juice stocked in the fridge! It was a great lil' home for our weekend! The camp host was personable and available when we needed him. The only negative was that it didn't seem like the cabin had been double-checked and prepped before our arrival - there were a few cobwebs and the tv didn't work the first night (but that was fixed for the second night). The view across the creek from Miner Cabin was a little less than "naturesque" -- with a Uhaul and miscellaneous chairs on a neighboring property, but this is true to Alaska, people don't always spruce up their yards! Would definitely stay here again.

This was or best lodging in Alaska. We spent 3 nights in August. It was cold at night, but that made sitting outside at our private fire pits even better! Can't remember the name of the cabin, but it was right on the creek and we could watch the salmon from our porch. We were with another couple and Tim went out of his way to bring our wood to our friend's cabin each day, since we had the fires there. Very clean rooms, nicely decorated, included fridge, microwave, fresh water. We didn't see wildlife, but Tim said a bear was there just before we arrived. Heard something walk across our porch at night. No bugs. Bathrooms were very nice, showers were GREAT! Private shower rooms with small sitting room. The walk to the bathrooms was not far at all - and pretty central for the cabins. Location is perfect for the area. DO NOT stay anywhere else!

We had an absolutely great time here at these cabins. We stayed in the Spring cabin right next to the creek. Nothing more relaxing than having the sound of the creek with a fire going and great conversation with Tim as we were the last ones there for the season. I wouldn't even bother looking at other cabins in the area. The bathrooms and showers were clean and the added touch of music that I enjoyed listening to made it enjoyable. As one who works in the hospitality business, I see that Tim really takes hospitality serious and goes that extra mile to make sure his guests are comfortable and that they are enjoying their stay. Next Summer I definitely will take advantage of the hospitality here and will suggest these cabins to my guests at my hotel if they ask me about cabin stays when not staying at my hotel.

My wife and I spent 3 months traveling across Alaska by car. this summer. One of our favorite towns that we visited was Seward. We stayed 3 nights in the Spruce Cabin right next to the creek. Tim was a great host and his hands on attention to seeing that we were comfortable was most appreciated. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Creekside Cabins for your stay in Seward Alaska.

Room Tip: Talk with Tim on the number in your party and he will suggest which cabin will fit your needs best.

Spectacular property, stayed in the trapper cabin for the incredible proximity to the creek and spawning red salmon. I had a tight schedule, to hike early, Exit Glacier, before I caught my plane out. Tim wasn't sure if I would have time to make the creperie, so he personally cooked me eggs and kielbasa breakfast, FANTASTIC. Yes, shared bathrooms but immaculate. Tims operation goes back to the innkeepers of old: a warm, safe, comfortable stay, by a proprietor who cares. Next time i will bring my wife and daughters, for a most authentic Alaskan experience, with pampering.

Room Tip: Trapper Cabin is smaller, no more than two people, but best proximity to the creek for nighttime lul...

Spent three nights in the Eagle's nest, which was the perfect size for 2 adults and one (happy) kid in her own loft. Tim was really friendly and provided solid advice on what to do on both rainy and sunny days. We really appreciated getting the makings for s'mores, as well as a few spare paper bowls. Better than buying a big package! The cabin itself was clean and comfortable, and the pretty little creek out back was full of returning salmon. The fridge and microwave were useful, but note that you should not expect kitchen amenities. The DVD player and tv came in handy on the one rainy day, and if Tim's DVD collection at the front desk isn't enough, the local Safeway has plenty of cheap ones for sale. The bathroom area was always clean, and the music added a fun touch. Overall, we recommend the cabins for a fun stay that is a lot more genuine than staying in some off the motels in Seward, which looked rather soulless in comparison.

In Seward, we especially liked the Tonsina Point hike and Mitch Seavey's dogsled experience. There are several good restaurants in town too - and the halibut burrito at the Mexican place near the dock was a find. Also enjoyed both Ray's and Chinook's at the dock. Closer to the cabins, we really liked the Salmon Bake (with the big pickle jug!) and had some great, if very expensive, crepes at the nearby Barn Appetite.

Room Tip: The Eagle's Nest is perfect for 2-3 travelers!

We stayed here for two nights on our recent trip to Seward. I was a little skeptical about using the shared bathrooms. But seeing the wonderful reviews, we decided to go ahead and book them. I should say these little cabin exceeded our expectations. They are well decorated, well maintained and a perfect size. Tim even had a bundle of firewood waiting for us. The bathrooms and bathhouses were kept clean. We had a lovely time sitting outside the cabin, having a fire and watching the salmon go by in the creek. I highly recommend these cabins to everyone.
