What Our Guests Are Saying
My mom and I stayed in one of the campers. The twin beds were comfortable and there was enough room for our clothes in the closet. Though there were only shared bathrooms, we found them clean and the sign-up for the shower worked well. We really enjoyed making a camp fire, cooking in the kitchen and meeting other travelers.
Katrine B, TripAdvisor
Absolutely the perfect alaskan experience!! I was a little nervous because I had never had stayed anywhere with a shared space (bathrooms and outdoor kitchen). I will definitely be visiting again! We had so much fun visiting with other guests. The entire property was clean, well maintained and well stocked from the yurts to the bathroom and kitchen...This was by far my favorite place to stay over our 3 week (7 different places) stay.
Cynthia G, Trip Advisor
We grabbed a yurt last-minute to give us an extra night in Seward and were NOT disappointed! It was very clean, organized, and the whole place was full of Alaskan ambience. Lots of little details have been thought of to make it a full experience. We only wished we had a little more time to enjoy it!
