I will never forget this wedding vacation! We saw a moose, whales, and sea lions! We went on a train, bus, car, and hiked! We went to Denali, Seward, and a saw a beautiful wedding at Tern Lake. Thank you Alaska for gorgeous weather and celebrating my nephew's wedding in style! I can't wait to come back!!!

We should have stayed longer! This is such a lovely Inn, practically everything you could need, and so well looked after by our hosts. The breakfast was one of the best we have tasted in Alaska, while our host's comprehensive knowledge of the area caused us to change our travel plans for the day and enjoy the spectacle of salmon...

Our daughter's wedding was held at this Inn the past weekend. We had family and friends all converge here and most of us had never met before, the Inn made for a perfect spot to get to know each other. I could not imagine a better place for families to meet and share in the joining of two people in...

We enjoyed two nights at the Inn while fishing the Kenai River. We were only 30 minutes from the Sportsman's Landing so easy access to fishing and guide service. From there we went to Seward and Exit Glacier. Nice large breakfast available each day and a guest refrigerator to keep your lunch items fresh. Very comfortable and would recommend.

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the Inn at Tern Lake, in late August. We found this B&B to be one of the finest that we've ever stayed at. The inn was beautifully located between mountains on each side, with streams and ponds that were filled with spawning salmon, which were within walking distance of the main house....

One of the best places we stayed in our 1.5 week trip to Alaska. If I were to do it again, I would not stay in Seward, but here and do the drive into Seward for excursions. The distance isn't far and the accommodations at Tern Lake are by far better than anything we saw in Seward. Hosts make you...

All the past reviews helped me not be surprised when upon our arrival no one was around to greet us. There were two doors, neither marked as the Inn entrance. We entered the first door and thought we had stepped into someone's home, so immediately stepped back out. Then we entered the second door and it was obvious we had...

The place is well maintained, clean, slept well, and the food was good. Great place to kick back and wind down from any busy lifestyle. The wifi was questionable at best, it worked best on the main floor, but not so much in room 2 and not at all on the nice little deck.

The Inn at Tern Lake is the BEST B&B we have ever stayed at. Room 1 was very spacious, high ceilings and a deck overlooking a small lake. During our 2 night stay we saw 2 moose and one brown bear right from the deck. The Inn is beautiful. Very modern and well kept. Rose and Jeff, the owners, were...

The Inn at Tern Lake was a welcome place to wind down after a busy week of adventures. The setting is beautiful and tranquil, yet close enough to Seward to be a great base for excursions. Jeff and Rose, the proprietors, have created a welcoming atmosphere that also gives you room to breathe. Stay here - you won't be sorry!

“There is no bad room here, but if you're looking for enourmous rooms, go with either 1 or 4. Rooms 2 and 3 might be smaller in comparison, but they are large rooms by any other standard and are perfectly charming with great views.”
