-Free gym access to our local gym, 5th Ave. Fitness. They have two locations within a block from us. Classes are included! (summer only)
-We also host a wine hour called the "Sauerdough Speakeasy" each night in the Sea Bean from 5-6pm where you can enjoy a free glass of wine and meet fellow travelers! (summer only)

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.

Guest access
Entire apartment, and cafe downstairs.

Other things to note
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!

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 and a bernese mountain dog puppy that keep us busier than both businesses combined.
