OMG! Wow. I'd love to live here 6 months of the year. I went with 2 friends, and best friend, my dog. The view is to Live for. I woke up, looking out my bedroom window seeing a Bald Eagle about 100 yards away, sitting on the rocks. The views are. Awe- inspiring! It's calm, relaxing, beautiful. Sue the owner... More

I love staying in cottages located away from busy towns and in secluded areas. This one fits it well not that Seward is that big but this place is located in Lowell Point which is south of Seward. This experience of having to drive on a muddy road on the edge of a mountain adds to the experience, plus seeing... More

Our extended family of 7 stayed at the Cottage in late August. This was the first time that we have stayed someplace other than a hotel so I was a little apprehensive about staying at someone’s house. The main reason was to have cooking facilities as my son has numerous food allergies which makes it difficult for eating out. After... More

We stayed at Sue's Cottage on the Bay in Seward mid-June: two adults and two kids, ages 12 and 13. The location is amazing -- right ON beautiful Resurrection Bay. The cottage is well-equipped with everything you think you need, and things you never ever thought you would use! It was helpful to have a stock of things like ketchup... More

Our family spent 4 nights at "Sue's Place" inthe middle of July. This was our 4th trip to Alaska, and our 3rd to Seward, and this is by far the best place we've stayed. The location speaks for itself - right on the beach of stunning Resurrection Bay at the end of the road, but only a block to Miller's... More

My husband and I and our 5 kids stayed at the Cottage on the Bay this August and we had a wonderful time. The proprietor, Sue, made us feel comfortable and had the house stocked with everything we needed to cook our breakfast and dinners at home. We had great views of the bay while we ate our reindeer stew... More

Aunt Sue is going to let you use her cottage on Resurrection Bay! It's a wonderful, homey cottage, full of her books and memorabilia, right on the rock beach. You'll see otters, seals, and even whales swimming by, and eagles will stroll along the water's edge. Snow-capped mountains rise straight up from the water, and Seward dozes at the end... More
