“Unbelievable”
Reviewed 14 August 2010

Black bears, brown bears with cubs, moose, spawning salmon, unbelievable views, and thats without leaving the cabins. Fantastic information from Tim, Frankie and Tony. Minutes from fishing, flying tours, glaciers and everything else Seward has to offer. My brother and I had a trip we will never forget, we will be back!
Thanks for everything, truly an unforgettable experience.

We couldn't have asked for a better two nights in Seward thanks to Tim and Frankie at the creekside cabins. They have a great, clean space, and it couldn't be in a better location. Right down the road from exit glacier, about 5 minutes to town, and you can watch salmon spawn in the creek right next to your cabin/firepit. Tim truly does everything that he can to make your stay the best it can be, and we will certainly be staying here again as a result. There is no reason to look at any other place unless creekside is full.

We stayed for 2 nights in the Spruce cabin and felt very safe, comfortable, clean and looked after by Tim who was friendly and answered many questions. We were lucky to see the black bear who visits and even better at 6 am the morning we left we saw the brown bear splash down into the creek and get a salmon (scaring the local ducks) and she took it to her cubs who ate it on the other side if the creek with us awed in amazement just 20 ft away!! Tim didn't even know that and I am sure he would be happy to hear we saw them! Would and will stay again! Highly recommended ( can we just permanently move in ?) :)

We've stayed everywhere on the Kenai and this is the best- our favorite by far! Tim and staff are friendly, fun, knowledgeable, and jump at the chance to assist or advise. Whatever we needed, Tim and Frankie quickly offered (incl. dry firewood they lit in rain!). They even mailed us the items we left behind by mistake. The cabins are charming in a beautiful setting- we've stayed in several and love them all. This is perfect for a romantic getaway or an extended family trip. My only concern about Alaska Creekside Cabins is that they'll realize how exceptional they are and raise the price!

Creekside Cabins were excellent, charming rooms in a beautiful setting. We stayed in Musher Cabin right on the creek, ducks joined us for a campfire at night. Tim was an outstanding host, he could not have been more helpful.

We arrived in Seward with no idea where to stay. Lonely Planet said go to the Chamber of Commerce, they will help you pick one out. We got a gem. Tim is a terrific host, there when you want him, invisible when you don't. Great personality and stories. Trusted advisor on where to eat, what to do. Cottages are neat as can be with coffee pot, microwave, fridge, TV DVD. Tim's collection of DVDs to play if you want may not be your taste but free is good. Very convenient to Exit Glacier and all the Seward activities. If you come off a cruise stay a bit here to disconnect from cruise mode to Alaska mode. If you come from Anchorage, you will have a rental car. Later in the summer you will likely see salmon in the creek.

We were a little concerned about walking over to shared bathrooms and shower. That was not a problem. Very clean and roomy. Privacy was great and no waiting as we had seen in other places in our travels. Sauna is just the thing if your hiking muscles are out of practice. What few other travelers we saw there were ultra friendly.

You could not ask for better at any price. Great value.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at Alaska Creekside Cabins in June. We were looking for something affordable and rustic. We got both. Tim was great, very friendly, funny, and helpful. We stayed in the Burl Cabin, and we couldn't have been better off, a clean room and a comfortable bed. The shared bathrooms and showers were great. They are kept extremely clean and privacy is no issue. Plus the water pressure and water temperature is great.
