Overview

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 two twin beds 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.

Roomy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This house was very comfortable and had more than enough room for our family of 5 adults. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was very well equipped. It was very clean. The only problem we had was that we kept losing internet connection. I definitely recommend this property!

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.
