“Unbelievable Setting”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2017

First of all, the view is incredible. The cozy cottage sits right on the rocky beach overlooking Resurrection Bay and snow capped mountains. There's wildlife just outside your windows, for us it was each of the 5 days. We saw eagles, whales, dall porpoise and even a sea lion! Second, but equally wonderful, are the owners Sue and Ken. They have provided a comfortable and well-stocked retreat in Seward, Alaska. We enjoyed hearing their stories about the area and seeing their photos of the cottage throughout the years. Thank You Sue and Ken for a memorable Vacation. Maureen, Ann and Dan Hicks Ellijay, Georgia

“Awesome views!”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2016

We had a great stay at Cottage on the Bay! Everything was just as we expected and even went beyond our expectations. Great view across Resurrection Bay, and we enjoyed watching the fishing boats come and go. Sue is super friendly and knowledgeable and we enjoyed visiting with her. She showed how to use the marine radio to listen to boat communications!

Response from the owner Thank you for the kind words. I really enjoyed your stay. Looking forward to seeing you in the future. Sue

“Million Dollar View”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2016

Location-Location-Location This would have to be the best location for a Cottage in Seward. The view is incredible, host are very friendly, informative and close by. We had 6 people staying at cabin and that was a little tight for space, but again the location and view was spectacular.

Response from the owner Thank you for your kind words.

“Wonderful place and nice people”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2011

This place is special. We will never forget the beautiful view of the mountains across the bay, the beach, and the wildlife. Our hostess, Sue Lang. was very helpful and most fun to chat with. We fall in love with alaska and its interesting and friendly people during our stay in Seward. We will definitely come back.

“Idyllic and relaxing. A perfect place to come and stay in Seward”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2011

I was totally impressed with the cottage. It was quaint and charming. The location was idyllic. I was enraptured by the views and the peacefulness of it. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The amenities were well designed and functional. Sue and Ken went out of their way to make it a perfect trip. I was very very impressed with the entire trip and have told many friends of it and of my stay there.

“Perfect, fun and relaxing!”

Reviewed 19 May 2011

We came down to Seward for Pink Cheeks, the annual triathalon. There were six of us and the three bedrooms with two beds in each room worked out perfectly. Sue was a great host and very helpful. We all had a great time. Sitting out at the fire pit in the evening with the view of Resurrection Bay was spectaular. I see this becoming a tradition. We made Sue promise us the house for next years Pink Cheeks! Thanks for everything Sue. See you next year!

“Absolutely stunning views of Resurrection Bay and Eagles galore”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2010

Our group of seven(Mill Creek Mission Team in Alaska for "Salmon Frenzy") stayed at a Cottage on the Bay in July for three nights and were charmed by the cottage, made to feel welcome by the owner(Sue Lang) and Buster and Bentley and were absolutely stunned by the breathtaking views! From a magnificent crystal clear sunrise(which I understand is unusual) to many, many eagles soaring, sitting in trees or on the beach to otters playing in the water outside the front door to a huge cruise ship passing in front of the cottage to the comfortable cottage with a fireplace(which we enjoyed) to the outside deck with fire pit(which we also enjoyed) and grill and picnic table, we were sad to leave after 2 days and 3 nights but we were looking forward to our trip to Kenai where we served with Missionary Brenda Crim at the "Salmon Frenzy" where the Kenai River empties into Cook Inlet. Thank you Sue for a memorable time in Lowell Point and Seward!

“Lowell Point, the coastal Alaska experience”

Reviewed 14 Apr 2010

Amazing scenery, super location, attentive hosts, I look forward to coming back. I spent the winter of 2009-2010 down on the Point. Theres nothing one can complain about when you wake up in the morning, sit up in bed, and can see sea otters playing out in the bay and the sun rising over the fijords through the front windows. I'd roll out of bed, make some cocoa, and then sit outside and go contemplate the day ahead while listening to the waves crash and birds start chirp. The evenings would be almost the same process in reverse. After dinner, sit outside for a spell, or on the couch and then retreat to bed with the waves and breeze lulling me to sleep. The house sits on a short bluff on the western side of Resurrection Bay on the north end of Lowell Point. The house was fully equipped with all the civilized comforts one would expect outside and done up in Alaskan-Coastal cabin decor. The house is on a cistern, which shouldnt be much of a problem in any season other than hard winter. I was less than three miles or so from downtown Seward, a decent walk or short drive -- just had to work with the occasional avalanches in the winter.

“Can't beat the fishing support! Or the view!”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2009

LARGE freezer and generous loan of a vacuum sealer that works great was priceless in bringing home four coolers of fish. We've been here twice now. The home is charming, has everything you need if you have kids...books, games, videos, tons of towels and washcloths, washer and dryer! Come to think of it, the adults made good use of that stuff too. The view is zen mind inducing as is being right on the water, oh, and the hostess is a hoot!

“majestic location”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2009

what a perfect location! right on the water, surrounded by the mountains, eagles, sea otters, and solitude. had a great stay -- with some of the most spectacular scenery we had the pleasure to experience while on our month long vacation in alaska.
