[08/09/21]   We are sold out for the rest of the summer, with only one vacancy since late May. Bookings have already started for summer 2022, so if you are thinking of an Alaska vacation next year, be sure to plan ahead, including flights and rental cars.

[04/15/21]   As thanks to three off season tenants who have stayed at the Summit View through COVID times, they will be staying through May 2022, and so suite 1 is the only one available for 2021 nightly summer rentals. Suite is starting to fill up, but many good nights remain. It appears that summer 2021 will be much busier than 2020, so don't wait to plan your summer Alaska vacation.

[04/21/20]   As everyone knows, it's going to be a quiet summer in Alaska. Many folks from outside Alaska will not be able to visit, unless they have enough time to endure the current 14 day quarantine. If you are able to visit Seward, whether from Alaska or outside, Seward will be an outstanding 2020 vacation destination. You will be able to go on wildlife cruises, kayaking, sport fishing, enjoy delicious Alaska seafood and beers, and do all this in an uncrowded atmosphere. And there will be plenty of accommodations available for you. If the Summit View Lodge fits your needs, please let us know.

Many improvements have been made recently to the Summit View. Here are the new front porches and a glimpse of a few of the nine new windows. More to come!

[09/14/19]   We are on the verge of being fully booked for the off season with folks needing 6 to 9 month rentals. Welcome to all! Hope you have a great fall, winter, and spring in Seward.

Summit View Lodge

The Summit View now has a Teespring store, so you can have (and show off) a remembrance of your Alaska vacation. All prices are at our cost, plus or minus a few cents and any profits go to Eisley's college fund. These are the official shirts, mugs, stickers, and other merchandise of Summit View Lodge in scenic downtown Seward, Alaska.
