Seward Windsong Lodge & The Resurrection Roadhouse

seward-windsong-lodgeLast weekend my boyfriend and I took a one night trip to Seward for a quick getaway from Anchorage and to see the Kenai Fjords National Park. We decided to get to Seward by driving the scenic route from Anchorage, since it’s an easy 2 ½ hour drive through the mountains and along the coast. We didn’t leave Anchorage until 6:00 pm since we both had to work that day but we had daylight the whole way down. When we got to Seward we had a very quick and easy check in at the Seward Windsong Lodge, and even though we were booked in a deluxe category room, they upgraded us to a suite category room (the suites are bigger and have a Jacuzzi bathtub).

I noticed the computers by the gift shop which offer free internet use for guests. The Windsong Lodge is about 3 miles from the heart of Seward and they have a free shuttle for guests that go in and out of town frequently to accommodate the day cruises, cruise ship transfers, as well as guests seeking to go to the Sea Life Center or just walk around downtown and check out the shops and restaurants.

I am a vegan so whenever we go out to eat it can be challenging to find something adequate to suite my dietary needs. They were very accommodating when I told them I was vegan and our waiter recommended the Aglio E Olio (which is a pasta dish) without the cheese and my boyfriend had the prosciutto wrapped chicken breast and mashed potatoes. We both ordered the local favorite Moose’s Tooth raspberry wheat beer to drink. Our service was fairly quick even though it was still busy, and WOW our food was amazing. I am having dreams about their Aglio E Olio and my boyfriend said his food was incredible as well. We both ate every last bit! The beer we had was great, if you are a beer drinker than I would recommend trying it. After dinner we went back to our hotel room, enjoyed the Jacuzzi then were ready for bed. Our checkout from the hotel took a whole 2 seconds the following morning then we were on our way. Our experience at the Windsong Lodge was especially nice with the free upgrade and the excellent customer service (hat’s off to our waiter at the Roadhouse by the way, he was very friendly and did an excellent job). I would HIGHLY recommend staying here if you plan on visiting Seward.

    We are a family of six ( 2 21 year olds, a 17 year old and a 15 year old) going to Alaska on a Princess cruise. We are flying into anchorage and have three nights before the cruise leaves — trying to decide whether to go north to Denali or South to Kenai Peninsula? Any suggestions?

    Last summer we took a Princess Cruise (2 Couples newly retired) we flew into Anchorage 3 days early and went to Kenai Peninsula. Later we went to Denali, but if I had one choice it would be Kenai. We did the 6-8 hr cruise of Resurrection Bay sponsored by the National Park Rangers. Spent the night in Cooper Landing at the Alaskan Sourdough B&B drove thru the towns and and saw many wonderful scenes, Cook Inlet, volcanoes, salmon running. Spent the second night at LAnd’s End motel on Homer Spit. Eagles galore. Went back to Cooper Landing for the next night and then back to Anchorage to catch our cruise group. I would have liked to have done a white water raft trip on the Kenai River. But I’ll get that next year when we are driving our RV up and can take our time.

    Our choice to stay at the Windsong Lodge in Seward proved to be another good decision. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and convienent to town. We stayed in a deluxe(newer) room and with four adults it was plenty of room. The Roadhouse restaurant was a pleasant surprise as well. The breakfast buffet is a must before heading out for a long day! The bar is something to behold featuring sixteen beers on tap if I remember correctly! Most in Alaska I think. As a whole all the food in Alaska was great! Nice trip to Exit glacier just down the road.
