About the neighbourhood
A Cottage on the Bay is at 13710 Beach Dr at Lowell Point, about 1/2 way between The Silver Derby Campground and Miller's Landing. The street name was generated a few years ago so old maps may show it as Deacon Subdivision Rd. Many GPS programs do not show this street on their maps yet ;-) Please follow the directions as written on your confirmation. The cottage is right on the shore. It is not uncommon to see bald eagles, Stellar sea lions, sea otters and seals right from the deck. A variety of seabirds can also be seen.
Getting around
There is no public transportation to Lowell Point but most cab companies will come and pick you up. If you are going on an early morning charter or tour of Kenai Fjords National Park and don't want to drive yourselves, we recommend that you make an appointment with one of the local taxi companies for pick-up before and after your activity. Cab numbers are available at the cottage.
