IMG_6862 A Swan Nest Inn is half way between a hotel and a B&B. It has a homey feel but you do not feel like your in some ones home. It is located on the second floor of the historic IOOF building on a quite street one block from central downtown, one block from the ocean and three blocks from the Sea Life Center. All the rooms have private bathrooms and a low ceilinged loft with extra beds. Rooms sleep 4 to 5 people. This is an affordable accommodation with smaller rooms and two common areas for guest to mingle. A kitchen is available for guests to use. Hot continental breakfast is included. A full breakfast is available.
B&B front Seward Front Row B&B is our waterfront home finished in 2010. It is located two blocks from central downtown and two block from the Sea Life Center. Daily we can watch sea lions, otters and occasionally whales from the house. We have a ground floor room with a private entrance and its own kitchen. This is not a handicap room but it is wheel chair accessible. In the main house we have two rooms with private bathrooms. The views from the house are unsurpassed in Seward. A self serve continental or full breakfast is included. The kitchen is also available for guests to use.
Townhouse front Seward Front Row Townhouse is a three bedroom waterfront townhouse that is rented as one unit. This is definitely upscale, and realistically the nicest place available to rent in Seward. Unsurpassed views and all the amenities including a hot tub. Guest provide their own meals.
IMG_6796 The Northern Nights B&B is a traditional in style.  It is also the oldest continually operated B&B in Seward, originally operated by Don and Marilyn Sutherland.  The building was remodeled, doubling its original size in 2001.  Don and Marilyn retired and sold the place to us in 2015.   Being located adjacent to the Seward Library Park, the B&B provides a quiet tranquil environment within the historic downtown district.  Our Manager Sarah lives on the premises.  Sarah is a great cook with gluten free and vegetarian recipes.

 In the late 90’s we quite the rat race, and with our 9 year old son, sailed into the sunset on our 41’ sailboat “Mirage.” Along the way we visited Alaska and in 2000 when we were finished with that adventure we made Seward our new home. We restored the Historic IOOF building and started A Swan Nest Inn and more recently build a home on Seward’s waterfront. We hike, ski, sail, fish, row and absolutely love the outdoor life that Alaska offers. Sarah Thomas is our Manager and lives on the premisses of the Northern Nights B&B. In 2007, Sarah came to Seward for a summer job and never left. She is an excellent cook and has gluten free and vegetarian recipes. Riika is new to our family. She lives at the SFR B&B. For those concerned with allergies, she lives out side and is not permitted in guest rooms. She loves going on hikes & walks with our guests.
