About the property

A 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With Mountain Views In A Quiet Setting

We have a spacious comfortable home situated in a quiet residential neighborhood about 6 miles outside of Seward.

A 3 bedroom 2 bath that sleeps 8. Each downstairs bedroom has a king bed. One bedroom has a private bath. The upstairs sleeping area is perfect for children with a twin bunk bed set and a queen tempurpedic bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the amenities for preparing meals. This property is perfect for multiple families or those traveling with extended family. It is very spacious and comfortable. It has a large southern facing deck with great sunshine for outdoor dining and great mountain views. There is also plenty of room for parking a boat if you are headed to Seward for fishing. This property is just around the corner from the Stoney Creek Zip Line. We believe this property is a diamond in the rough. It may not have the typical attributes of an Alaskan cottage or log home, but it is spacious, clean, and comfortable and is coined the Garage Lodge as it is located in large airplane hangar.

About Lisa Hartman

I have lived in Seward since 1981. I moved here as a child then my husband and I moved back in 1998. I have worked at the Alaska SeaLife Center since its opening in '98 and my husband owns a small construction company. We built our home in 2003 and we are excited about expanding our property and sharing our love of Alaska with our guests.

Lisa Hartman purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Lisa Hartman chose Bear Creek

We live next door and believe we have a beautiful piece of paradise and felt very fortunate when this property became available, so we can now share the beauty of Seward with others.

What makes this apartment unique

We believe this property is a diamond in the rough. It may not have the typical attributes of an Alaskan cottage or log home, but it is spacious, clean, and comfortable and allows plenty of room for parking a boat if you are coming to Seward to fish.

It's not really a garage...

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place in a great location for exploring Seward. Plenty of room for the 4 of us, very comfortable, and all the amenities we would need. Lisa was wonderful to work with and Rerun, the dog, enjoyed coming over for a nightly visit. If you want to be close to Seward, this is the place. Thanks Lisa.

Welcoming and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as advertised and then more. Everything we needed to begin our vacation was in the house waiting for us. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is a dream to work in and the bathrooms were luxuriant too. Having the laundry room proved a Godsend after our last hike.

To sum it up, when I return to Seward, I will request this house again.

Great location great owners!

  • 3 of 5

The Garage Lodge is strategically placed near Seward and is enough off the path to make you feel like you are in Alaska. You are in however a converted hangar/garage. The exterior is lacking curb appeal and that Alaskan charm we were looking for. The owners were very engaged, nice and caring folks. The inside of the place is nice and worked well for our two family group. One master downstairs for each parent group and all the kids upstairs. Wifi worked fairly is stocked up with cooking gear....we left tons of spices and other stuff....ATT and Verizon had zero to 1 the wifi was important.

My woman is a runner so she was doing a lot of walking....we were warned that a brown bear was in the area and to be careful by the owners....that added to the Alaska feel!

Spacious home in a quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

The house is huge and well furnished. Has all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. Kid friendly too!

Owners were very responsive and patiently dealt with any issues that came up.

It is located in a quiet neighborhood 10 minutes away from the center of the town.

Seward itself is very pretty town. It is a good base for taking the cruise, hiking the Exit Glacier and exploring Kenai Fjords.

One minor issue : baseboard heating was not on for the first night we were there. We had to ask the owners to turn it on the next day. Other than that, we had a wonderful stay!

Our rental property is located in beautiful Seward, Alaska, gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park. We are a 10 minute drive to downtown Seward. Enjoy scenery, take a wildlife cruise, go deep sea or salmon fishing, or visit Exit Glacier. If the weather keeps you in visit the world reknown Alaska SeaLife Center and watch puffins dive underwater and see seals and Steller sea lions glide past through large underwater viewing windows. Enjoy shopping in the downtown shopping district and visit our new Library and Museum
