There are many mind-blowing places to stay in Seward, but these are the very best Airbnbs in Seward, Alaska.

From ocean view cabins to rustic, cozy lodging in the forest, we have selected the best Airbnbs in Seward for your trip to Kenai Fjords National Park and beyond!

We have chosen Seward cabins and lodging for various budgets and travel types. Please let us know if you have stayed at an awesome Seward Airbnb in the past!

Should You Stay at a Seward Airbnb?

There are many fantastic reasons to stay at an Airbnb in Seward, Alaska but the reason we highly suggest it is that it offers a truly Alaskan experience, which is also a uniquely American experience to have if you’re not from the US.

We tried to choose Airbnbs that feel like ‘Alaska’, whether it be a cabin or a property with incredible views of the ocean or mountains.

Another reason we think Airbnbs are a great Seward lodging choice is that many people will have rental cars that are driving to Seward from Anchorage and beyond and they will have the flexibility to book something that requires a short drive to it.

While staying in the center is great as it is convenient, it is nice to have a choice of somewhere that is a bit more obscure and in the wilderness.

Also, renting an Airbnb can save money on food! Seward has some fantastic restaurants and places to dine at, but being able to prepare your own breakfast and coffee and stepping outside to enjoy it in the crisp Alaska air is an unforgettable experience in its own right!

Best Area of Seward to Stay In

We are under the impression that your trip to Seward is primarily to explore all the wonderful things to do in Kenai Fjords National Park!

The best way to see Kenai Fjords NP is by cruise and those leave from the harbor in Seward. So, we have picked Airbnbs in Seward that are near the harbor or close to it.

Alternatively, we know that many will have rental cars, so we also picked a few just north of Seward that offer rustic Alaska cabins in a quieter location with equally as epic views.
