So Much More than Great Lodging!
In addition to offering guests memorable stays in our wonderful cabins on the Kenai Peninsula in Seward, Alaska, Angels Rest on Resurrection Bay also provides a unique venue for destination weddings, elopements, and retreats. Read on to discover the heart and soul of this special place and what makes our waterfront location a favorite for our guests’ once-in-a-lifetime moments and celebrations.
Angels Rest on Resurrection Bay is the physical result of a love story of karmic proportion.
Paul, originally from Massachusetts, moved to Alaska in 1971. Paul is, among his many skills, an incredibly talented builder and carpenter. Paul is best known for his Silhouette Shingles, and his unique artwork adorns numerous homes and businesses all around Seward and Lowell Point. Paul also has shingle murals in Moose Pass, Anchorage, and Fairbanks, in addition to Nova Scotia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Minnesota. Each of the Angels Rest on Resurrection Bay cabins is adorned with his unique shingle artwork outside and offers unique and creative touches throughout the insides. Look for more of Paul’s artwork as you drive around Seward and Lowell Point.
Lynda, a native New Yorker, had been living in Michigan for 16 years, when she packed up and moved to Alaska in 1997, intent to establish this business. Although she had been successful in several different careers, she had always dreamed of having a business of her own. She felt an inexplicable pull towards Alaska. After several close calls with her health, Lynda realized that life is short; better to build your dreams now rather than just dream about them in some distant future. So, fulfilling her fantasy of 20 years, she came to Alaska in March of 1997 to find a new home and start a business where she could share her appreciation of life with others. When she saw the land on Beach Drive, on Lowell Point, she immediately knew she was meant to settle here.
To Lynda, if there were a place where angelic beings went on vacation, it would be here, on the shores of Resurrection Bay, one of the most beautiful locations in the entire world. Hence the name of the business came to be.
Lynda hired Lowell Point Neighbor, Paul H. Paquette, to build the first cabin for the business.
And as the saying goes: the rest is history!
Paul completed the first guest cabin, the Wing Cabin in the early summer of 1999; their first guest was in July. Paul and Lynda married in December of 2001. In May of 2003, the Hobbit Loft opened, which is now employee housing. In May of 2004, the Gatehouse Cabin opened to glowing reviews.
During the summer of 2004, Lynda retired from working for others (she’d been managing a 39-unit hotel for some years), and has been able to dedicate herself entirely to her customers. During the winter of 2007-2008, Paul and his nephew Richard completed the building we call Heron’s Roost, named for the Great Blue Herons that roost in the spruce trees around it. This 4-unit cabin sits across from the waterfront cabins and has great views. In mid-summer of 2008, Paul completed the 3rd and last waterfront cabin, Cloud 9.
Since then we’ve added the Gathering House, which Lynda uses for meetings and gatherings. Since 2018, Lynda has been offering awakening retreats.
