Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9) With a full laundry.

My wife Jennifer and I chose this spot on Trail River to raise our children because of its incredible beauty. Trail River Gardens is located just 20 min from Seward in the heart of the Chugach mountains on beautiful Trail River. From our deck the river is just 50 feet away with the majestic Mount Madison as a back drop. There are lakes above and below us with mountains on all sides. You can walk to hiking trails to even more mountain lakes. If you like to hike and watch birds and other wildlife, then you will love it here at Trail River gardens.

Great serene place to stay and Russ is an awesome host

  • 5 of 5

We were two families visiting Alaska and had a great stay. Russ even came by to ensure we were doing good. The location is serene with closer proximity to Seward

Awesome quite place

  • 5 of 5

Nice quite place, beautiful scenery, sound of the rushing river is so peaceful. A perfect picture of GOD's handy work. Would recommend to anyone. Rivers runs very fast so must keep small children under constant supervision. Thanks Russ

Very pretty cottage

  • 5 of 5

The 3 bedroom/3 bathroom cottage on the river was excellent. It was very nice, clean and stocked well. The BBQ grill on the deck was a plus.

Thank you!

A very nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families (4 adults & 4 kids) stayed in this wonderful cottage. We found the house comfortable (plenty of room for everyone) and well maintained. It was quiet

(stunningly beautiful river at backside) and conveniently located to get to all locations in and near Seward.Russ (the owner) was very accommodating. If we travel to Seward again, we would definitely stay here again. Thanks Russ & Jenn for the wonderful hospitality.

Beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

River right outside the door and the location is convenient for wildlife tours, kayaking, hiking around Seward. Visit/hike Kenai Fjords National Park/exit glacier. Three bedrooms each w private bath made it great for our group of five. Plan to be "unplugged"...but Resurrect Art coffee house and gallery is a fantastic place to plug in! Great views of the harbor, local art, and they make a great London Fog.

Comfortable, kitchen was well stocked with plates and cooking equipment essentials.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. It was great not having tv. The view was beautiful and we all loved listening to the river. The kitchen was supplied with most basic items. To our surprise there was a washer and dryer available. Russ and Jennifer were friendly and we loved listening to Russ's stories. We stopped by Jennifer's shop in downtown Seward - The Ranting Raven. It was a nice store and we were able to find some souvenirs. We would definitely recommend staying here.
