About Brooke Degnan

We are thrilled to invite you to share our Alaskan home with us! As all-things Alaskan enthusiasts, we take pride in providing outstanding hospitality and warmth and are happy to serve as a resource for Seward activities. Nick is a (nearly) life long Alaskan, arriving in the state as a young child. He grew up in Anchorage, Alaska and enjoys running, biking, skiing, swimming, classic cars, and spending time with his family. ​ Brooke spent her childhood as an air force brat with two tours at Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage, AK. She returned to Alaska as an adult in 1990 and has called the state home ever since. She loves to fish, hike, bike, run, swim, and x-country ski with her family.

Brooke Degnan purchased this house in 2010

Why Brooke Degnan chose Bear Creek

Seward offers the ultimate Alaskan experience - a small fishing town surrounded by towering peaks, lush wooded settings, mountain lakes, hiking trails, glaciers, wildlife, and world class fishing right in Resurrection Bay.

What makes this house unique

Originally built in 1997 by a local family and designed to be a bed and breakfast, the house is ideally suited for guests. And was successfully run as a b&b for 12 years by the Woods family and the Ray family.

We were drawn to the house the moment we turned off of the seward highway and found ourselves driving through towering spruce trees. The house sits on the forward part of a one acre wooded parcel and has expansive multi-level decking that allows our visitors to relax and enjoy the forested setting.

After 5 years of enjoying the house as our private residence, we are happy to open bell in the woods once again as a bed and breakfast.
