We stayed at Ballaine House just two nights, but it was definitely our best stay in Alaska. Marlee and Bree couldn't be more helpful, making suggestions, solving problems, and cooking delicious made-to-order breakfasts! The house is a wonderful historic home, rooms are nicely appointed and the beds are comfortable. They provided additional clothing for the bay tours, did laundry, called...

My wife and I have stayed at the Ballaine House in Seward several times. There are a variety of bed options, including king, queen, double, and singles. We've always stayed downstairs in either the king or queen room. Both rooms are very comfortable, clean, and well equipped with TV/DVD, night tables with lamps, room darkening curtains, down pillows, and lofty...

Bree and Marlee offer service, comfortable bed and delicious breakfast. We had bacon, waffles with homemade raspberry and rhubarb syrup, juice, coffee and an omelet. She also dropped us off for dinner and let us borrow some waterproof jackets for the bay tour. I am not one to ask for service, but they go out of the way to anticipate...

Our best B&B experience in Alaska. The hosts, Bree and Marlee, were really nice and very helpful. They pass the savings they get from the big boat cruise operators to the guests. We saved about 20% of the Kenai boat tour. We first found this B&B through the Lonely Planet travel guide from 2012. We called 2 days before arrival...

My husband and I stayed at the Ballaine House over the 4th of July weekend. We had a very pleasant stay and were very appreciative of the hospitality provided by Marlee and Bree. As soon as we had reserved our room, Marlee sent quite a bit of helpful information about Seward via email as well as advice for our particular...

I stayed two nights at the adorable and historical ballaine house and it was a wonderful experience. Bri cooked some delicious pancakes and was a wealth of knowledge about great places to hike and eat. Marlee arranged for my 26 glacier trip out of whittier which turned out to be a highlight for me. I would stay there again and...

This was a an unexpected gem on my trip to Alaska. The location and people made it all happen. From the Ballaine House to neat town of Seward I sure liked this location. Was only using this B&B as a layover but spent the extra day and night as recommended by Hostess and am glad I did! I found The...

It's the place and the person (Bree) that make the Ballaine House so special. Great location, very comfortable accommodation. Bree went out of her way to make us feel at home. Her custom breakfast was made to meet requests. Warmer jackets and gloves were supplied for the boat trip to Fox Island. Every detail made our stay a pleasure.
