seward ak lodgingAlaska Saltwater Lodging is located about 2 miles south of Seward on the shore of Resurrection Bay. To get to Seward from Anchorage you take the Seward Highway (a National Scenic Highway) 126 miles south (one of the most spectacular 2 to 2.5 hour drives in North America). Just far enough out of town to give you a sense of solitude, the lodging is also close enough to Seward to be convenient for activities in town as well (like a visit to the Alaska SeaLife Center, a variety of restaurants, coffee houses, horseback riding, and hiking trails).

your hosts at Alaska Saltwater LodgingAlaska Saltwater Lodging is a family operation. My wife Kathleen and our daughter Mary Kate were born in Alaska, I moved here in 1968. We have more than 30 years experience owning and operating Alaska lodges and running wildlife and fishing charters in this area, and take pride in being able to show you the best southcentral Alaska has to offer.

Our rooms are set up for double occupancy and have private baths. We have kept our lodging small and personal. The living room and dining areas both have incredible views of Resurrection Bay and its abundant wildlife.

Many of our guests use Alaska Saltwater Lodging as a base for their exploration of the Kenai Peninsula and Kenai Fjords National Park. To insure quality and personalized service we keep our groups small, often to 6 or fewer. Due to limited space, our packages can fill early; advance reservations are necessary to guarantee a place.

In addition to our guided activities, there are many things to do on your own. You can fish from the beach in front of the cottage, or go hiking on one of the nearby trails. The Caines Head Coastal Trail begins a short walk from the lodging and offers hikers a chance to experience the lush coastal rainforest and take in spectacular views of the bay. When you get to Tonsina Creek there is an opportunity to see hundreds of returning salmon. The portion of the trail that follows the shoreline promises sightings of sea otters, sea lions, and bald eagles.

A short drive from Seward (about 11 miles) can take you to Exit Glacier (the only road access to Kenai Fjords National Park, and pictured at left) where visitors can hike the easy trails around the base of the glacier or spend the day hiking up the Harding Icefield Trail. Guests interested in learning more about Alaska's marine life will enjoy a trip to the Alaska Sealife Center, located 2 miles from the lodging in downtown Seward.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or write. It is our goal to make your Alaskan experience everything that you dreamed it would be.
