The Wilderness Suite is a one-bedroom apartment with a wonderful vibe- you won't want to leave! From it's perfect location to the super-comfy king bed and clawfoot tub, everything about it is just what was ordered for a tailor-made haven from home.
Apartment 3- Wilderness Suite
This is a sunny one-bedroom apartment on the south side of the building, and has beautiful southern exposure. It has a wonderful, cozy feel to it, and is one of our favorites. The high ceilings, vintage kitchen, original built-in cabinetry and clawfoot tub are a nod to a bygone era, while the modern appliances, high speed internet and 40” flatscreen TV ensure all the comforts of the present day.

(please note that the cafe will be closed from Nov. 24 through March 31, 2017, so no vouchers will be provided if you stay with us during that timeframe.)
Built in 1907 by William Sauers, the Sauerdough Lodging building has served many purposes over the years. It originally housed the Seward Commercial Co. general store, with a town meeting hall upstairs. During the Roaring ’20s, the building was used as a brothel. It is presently the home of The Sea Bean café downstairs and rental apartments upstairs.
The five apartments are beautifully restored, with original hardwood floors, clawfoot tubs, original built-in cabinetry, high ceilings and vintage kitchens with modern appliances. In a town that was hit hard by the 1964 earthquake, few original buildings have stood the test of time, and fewer still feature such comfortable accommodations. We offer our guests the unique opportunity to experience Seward’s history without sacrificing any of the conveniences you expect while traveling.
Entire apartment, and cafe downstairs.
We email access codes 2 weeks prior to check-in. We try to say hi to all guests during their stay, and are always just a text or call away. Help is also available at the cafe downstairs during business hours.
We are located on the main block of downtown Seward, on Fourth Ave, between Adams and Washington. Shops, restaurants, bars, the library, community museum, waterfront, kayak rentals, and the Alaska SeaLife Center are all at your fingertips (or feet).
The best part about Seward is how foot and bike friendly it is- you can walk or bike everywhere! The waterfront bike path is beautiful, and takes you to the harbor. If you don't feel like walking/biking, the city operates a free shuttle during the summer that stops at various points around Seward, including downtown and the harbor.
Our apartments are located on the second floor, which is only accessed by stairs (see photo in our photo section). We apologize, but we do not have an elevator. We'd be glad to help you up the stairs with your luggage, if you give us a call or text first!
Sorry, no pets and no smoking- thanks! We also ask that you please wash all dishes before you check out.
I love the idea of globe-trotting and love living vicariously through our guests that pass through our lodge on their way to their next adventure. My husband and I run The Sea Bean, a coffee shop right below our apartments, in addition to Sauerdough Lodging, and we have two little girls that keep us busier than both businesses combined.
