Fantastic reviews, places to explore, outdoor adventures and creative workshops” Womentravelblog “Her guest reviews are outstanding – it is definitely on my list of places to stay if I go to Alaska” Rosemary Neave- Women Travel the World– April 2016 Imagine sleeping comfortably in your beautifully decorated, cozy and quiet room with private bath surrounded by beautiful colors and stained glass. Enjoy a full home-made Alaskan healthy breakfasts and gourmet coffee served in one of a kind stained glass dishes made by your host at your own private dining table. Browse the book of local attractions, maps and menus and discuss options for great local adventures with your host, a professional wildlife biologist, artist, musician and dance instructor. Decide to take a local boat tour of the spectacular Kenai Fjords National Park, go sea kayaking, hike a glacier or forest, go on a sled dog ride, visit Exit Glacier or go fishing for silver salmon or halibut. Or just browse local galleries, shops and museums. After your host sets up your adventures for you, you can walk to most anything you decide to do. Maybe you choose to hike the famous Mount Marathon, up through a beautiful rain forest and up into a gorgeous alpine bowl, looking for birds, moose, bears or mountain goats? Walk to the trailhead a few blocks away. Or stroll along the pathway along Resurrection Bay a few blocks away and look for sea lions, otters, whales and birds in route to downtown or the small boat harbor. Enjoy amazing view of oceans, mountains and glaciers. Have a fantastic day filled with the amazing scenery, wildlife and local hospitality and color. When you return, your host provides great recommendations for local restaurants for dinner. Maybe you want to do a little private shopping and view the one of a kind stained glass art and jewelry made on site. Try on anything you like. Or maybe you feel like exploring your creative side and would like to take a private lesson in American Tribal Style Dance, learn how to play drums or learn to make jewelry? Take an evening stroll along the waterfront or enjoy one of the colorful establishments for a beer or some music. Watch the cruise ship turn around right in front of the house. Or relax and enjoy free wireless internet and the library of Alaskan DVD’s, movies and books provided in your room. Enjoy the large HD TV with internet apps, Netflix, Hulu etc and Dish Network. Kick back; watch a movie with hot chocolate and some popcorn. Finally, have a restful sleep in your antique bed, covered in fluffy flannel sheets, comforters and satin coverlets and dream about your next adventure. The room has an antique double bed and is great for a single person or couple. A cot is available for traveling companions. It also contains a small refrigerator and microwave. Laundry service is available for a fee. The bath contains a shower and bathtub. Check in time is 6PM. Check out time is 12 pm. Arctic Paradise B&B has been in business since 2001 and was newly remodeled in 2013. Look forward to meeting you! More

We awoke each day to a view of Resurrection Bay and the mountains beyond. Arctic Paradise is convenient to all of the attractions which Seward offers. Mary Ann's daily breakfasts were a delight. We enjoyed her artistic touches throughout the unit.

About the neighbourhood
Located in a quiet neighborhood on Sixth Avenue between Madison and Monroe Streets, a few blocks from the Main Street (Fourth Avenue). Seward is a fantastic place to hike, fish, explore Kenai Fjords National Park and Exit Glacier, visit local shops and galleries, take a sled dog tour, go flight seeing, dog sled or hike on a glacier or hike in solitude through a beautiful forest or on the beach. If you want to explore your creative side, I offer creative packages with private lessons in dance, world percussion or jewelry making on site. Parking is available on the street in front of Arctic Paradise. Public transportation includes a trolley, shuttles, a train, bus and rental cars.
Getting around
Arctic Paradise B&B is centrally located and within walking distance to downtown Seward and the small boat harbor. You can walk to shopping, restaurants, boat tours and attractions easily.
