We stayed at Bear Lake Lodgings B&B for two nights in June of 2014. No complaints. Location was good, easy to find. Short ride to Seward. Check in was efficient. Room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was good. Overall service was good. We never met the owners as they were not on property while we stayed there. Common area encouraged...

Thank you for mentioning some good points for future guests. We are close to Seward, but yet not in the city limits. This gives guests a nice savings on sales and bed taxes - an 8% difference for staying 3 miles from the city limits! The added peace and quiet is worth the 10 minute drive to the boat harbor...

My husband and I enjoyed a 3 night stay at the very comfortable Bear Lake Lodgings. The home is located on a lovely lake in a quiet neighborhood outside of Seward. The first night we had a room with a shared bathroom, not a problem. The next two nights we had the very spacious King suite that was worth the...

It's very good to hear that the lower priced two rooms on the third floor worked well for guests. The two rooms share a bath, which is not the first choice for most travelers. The impute about it not being a problem is good for future guests to juggle when coming to stay with us - those rooms are a...

Wonderful location on Bear Lake with a bald eagle's nest on the property. The rooms are comfortable and Deloha made us feel at home and provided a delicious breakfast. Yummy hand dipped ice creams are served every night. Luckily the weather broke long enough for us to use the complimentary kayaks for a short ride on the lake. Overall a...

Eagles are found throughout Alaska, but we are so excited to have a nest in easy view from our home. We have been having fun following them nesting and now able to see the baby eaglets (2) in the nest and watch the parents feeding them - viewing through our spotting scope on a tripod for all to use.
