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...

By far the best place we stayed our entire honeymoon! From the second we arrived we felt very welcomed. George had greeted us in the rain, and showed us the place. It was better than the pictures. The view was stunning, and the yurt is done very nicely inside. You can tell a lot of work went into it. He...

Incomparable! Easily one of the most memorable places I've stayed. The view of the water off the back deck was stunning; the owner (George) was welcoming, knowledeagble, and attentive; and the yurt was cozy, comfy, and well stocked with kitchen and bathroom supplies. Can't wait to come back next summer!

I was really lucky to find this place. At first, it looks like a humble yurt. But when you come inside of the yurt, everything is perfect. Its comfort, convenience, view are comparable to those of five star hotels. It has kitchenette and BBQ grill, so we could make our own salmon and halibut BBQ - it was excellent. A...

This was a very cool accommodation, right on the bay with perfect views of the mountains and alpine glaciers. It has a heater for cool nights, and 2 doors for cross ventilation on warmer days, and George, the owner added lots of custom details like an inlayed stone countertop and bathroom floors, and mandatory items like a coffee pot and...

What a find! We LOVED Alaska Base Camp and our wonderful host, George. We had never stayed in a yurt before…and now want to own one. Of course, this particular yurt is very well cared for and it shows. Well kept and lots of great amenities. Very nice and clean appliances (microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator, etc.) This was absolutely the...

George's yurt is by far the most interesting place I have stayed and by far has the best view of anywhere I have stayed. George is a gracious host and keeps a spotless yurt. We had 5 ladies and everyone had a bed. The bathroom is super and has anything you could want. The kitchen is great. Small, with a...

We spent two nights at the Yurt and had a great experience. George the owner is very attentive and he keeps spotless accommodations. Your front yard is the magnificent bay and mountains. We saw lots of sea birds from the front deck. The Wifi and cellular service there worked great. You can consider yourself very lucky if you can find...

This was my favorite place we stayed at during our Alaska trip. Staying in a yurt made for some great memories and I wish we could have stayed here a week instead of just one night. The owner was very nice and helpful and wanted to make sure that we were well taken care of. The yurt was clean and...

Our first trip to Seward, and talk about LUCK! My wife just happened to stumble across Alaska Base Camp, and it's wonderful host, George Walker. Gee, what a fortunate find! Thank you, George!
