This yurt is fantastic, so quirky, yet so homely. My husband and I loved our stay here on the beach and really enjoyed taking evening strolls up and down the water. A truly unique experience that i highly recommend.

As a couple we enjoyed the yurt as a luxurious place to live for 9 nights. And the host, George was perfect. Fun, friendly, generous - am almost afraid to put down all he did for us because he can't possibly do all this all the time. We had a ridiculously string storm - the cruise ship trying to enter...

We stayed two nights in George's yurt. It's fantastic. George is a wonderful host. The view from the deck was spectacular although it rained consistently during our time in Seward. George had excellent restaurant recommendations, although if you're planning on staying longer you won't need them because there is a kitchen with refrigerator and sink, and a grill on the... More

My wife and I stayed in George's beautiful Yurt for 2 nights and absolutely loved our stay. The Yurt is cozy yet roomy, making it an ideal stay for couples and families. The deck in front of the yurt offers spectacular views of Resurrection bay and the wildlife in it. In addition to a great place, George was really great... More

George Walker's yurt was one of my favorite places to stay in Alaska. I was only able to reserve 2 nights because the rest of the dates were already booked. I spent almost an entire day sitting on the beach, in one of the comfy chairs, looking at the view and listening to an audiobook. What bliss! The yurt itself... More

My family LOVED George Walker's Yurt! What a surprise to open the door of what we thought was a rustic yurt and find it so beautiful inside… bigger than I expected and well equipped. Very clean and comfortable. We wished we had booked it for longer. The view was beyond expectations as well… from the back deck we had a... More

This was our favorite place throughout all of Alaska. I recommend booking early - we could only get in for 1 night. I wish we could have stayed longer. The yurt is beautifully kept – completely spotless. There is a kitchenette with a fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and a BBQ outside. We made dinner and ate on the... More

George's yurt sits one the edge of the beach and on the same property as his house. The yurt is very well equipped with the same things you would expect in a cabin. The kitchen had the basics for making a meal and there is a BBQ outside. Everything was clean and comfortable. George was very welcoming and hospitable. We... More
