Interaction with guests
This cottage is located at 13710 Beach Dr, Lowell Point, Alaska. The doors will be unlocked on your arrival and the key code is found in the information binder on the kitchen table. I live next door and am as visible or invisible as you need me to be. Resurrection Bay is the playground of Alaska. Fishing charters and kayak trips, as well as water taxi service, is within walking distance. Fishing rods and reels are available in the cottage. You will need an Alaskan Fishing License which is available within walking distance. We are about 4 miles south of the Seward Boat Harbor. Boat tours and fishing charters are available at the harbor, as well several restaurants.

About the neighbourhood
A Cottage on the Bay is at 13710 Beach Dr at Lowell Point, about 1/2 way between The Silver Derby Campground and Miller's Landing. The street name was generated a few years ago so old maps may show it as Deacon Subdivision Rd. Many GPS programs do not show this street on their maps yet ;-) Please follow the directions as written on your confirmation. The cottage is right on the shore. It is not uncommon to see bald eagles, Stellar sea lions, sea otters and seals right from the deck. A variety of seabirds can also be seen.
Getting around
There is no public transportation to Lowell Point but most cab companies will come and pick you up. If you are going on an early morning charter or tour of Kenai Fjords National Park and don't want to drive yourselves, we recommend that you make an appointment with one of the local taxi companies for pick-up before and after your activity. Cab numbers are available at the cottage.
