Miller's Landing family favorite for large groups who want an ocean view with plenty of space to spread out.

Lodging with ocean views for large group rental

It sells out fast due to its size and beach location, so please book early to reserve! 

The Ocean Cottage is a large, charming three-bedroom, two-story cottage/home on the oceanfront at Lowell Point with a spectacular view of Resurrection Bay. The cottage is self-contained with a full kitchen, one bath with a shower, and a half bath upstairs (toilet and sink). The first floor has one bedroom with a King or two Twin-sized beds (can be set up either way). The living room has a Queen futon and a Twin hide-a-bed. The kitchen features a four-burner stove, fridge, freezer on site, toaster, coffeemaker, pots, pans, dishes (serving eight), food saver, microwave, and a washer/dryer. There is a couch in the living room, satellite TV, DVD, radio, VCR, and games/books. It also features a fireplace inside and a propane grill outside.

This is the only three-bedroom cabin on the oceanfront in Seward! We provide all bed linens and towels as well as basic grocery items including condiments, salad dressings, relish, mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, assorted teas, coffee, butter and margarine, flour, sugar, and spices. We recommend that you check out our cupboard before purchasing additional groceries. We also provide aluminum foil, plastic wrap, and assorted zip lock bags.

For our fishermen, there is a full size chest freezer and a food saver as well as rods/reels and bait/tackle.

The second floor has two more bedrooms with either a King bed or two Twins (can be set up either way) in each room. There are cozy comforters or hand-made quilts in each room. In the second floor common area there is a Twin hide-a-bed and a youth bed.
