This was a very last minute booking for my wife and I. She booked the place the night before we flew into Alaska. 1st off, the drive from anchorage down seward highway leading to this place was Amazing. A lot of beautiful turn offs from the road to take photos of the views. When we got to this place, without...

My daughter booked us here for a night's stay and it was wonderful. The cabins are very cozy and the property has a pond, running creek, and even a sauna. Our hosts were very gracious and the five course supper was amazing. It was very relaxing and we enjoyed going into Hope to fish and look around.

Melanie and Kent, You are the most gracious, and kind hosts. The atmosphere, besides the obvious beauty, is so peaceful, serene, and very full of positive energy. And the gourmet dinners!....each plate, course, detail, made with passion, inspiration, and full of love. We've managed to come home with a little souvenir of Melanie's homemade Pepper Jelly, a great gift to...

I can't say enough positive things about the Bowman's Bear Creek Lodge. The cabins are wonderful and clean, the bathhouse is clean and functional, and the intimate care and details put into the grounds are lovely. Truly a great place to unplug, unwind and enjoy the finer things in life like great (the best ever) food, friends and family. Thank...

We traveled from Anchorage for a birthday get away. There are 5 quaint cabins around a lake with a paddle boat and canoe. It's peaceful and wonderful. The cabins sleep 5-6 and have a microwave and mini-fridge and electricity. There is a bath house with showers and toilets. The 5-course meal for dinner that Melanie cooks is absolutely delicious. It's...

We spent the weekend here for our friend's birthday and had the most amazing time. The cabins were warm, comfortable, and clean and the dinner provided by the Bowman's was delicious! Thank you so much for having us, I will be booking another weekend soon for my family.

Writing on behalf of my husband and daughter - both of whom had a marvelous stay this past August. They were self-supporting bicycle riding from Seward to Anchorage and spent two days en route, at this amazing bed and dinner. The dinners were spectacular and hosts were friendly. My husband calls them the Penn & Teller of culinary delights as...

A beautifully cared for and well run lodge. A selection of cottages line a little lake and we had the larger cottage, which was back from the water but so lovely and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed a delicious five course dinner and chatting with owners Kent and Melanie. It is obvious they put a lot of care and attention into...

We stumbled across Kent & Melanie's place 7 years ago and that was the beginning of our Annual Visits. The entire place is magical and cathartic. Absolutely the best place to stay in Hope. The cabins are clean and welcoming. The food is so good that its beyond description. Do yourself a favor and book a trip to Bowman's Bear...

We did 4 different very good B&B during our trip in July. Bowman was the best and when we ended up with a extra day in Alaska Bowman's was the place we pick to spend it. The ambiance is great because of its remoteness (your at the end of the Hope Road) and beauty. The accommodations are very pleasant, and...
