The yurts are well kept and furnished. They are built like tents but are fully secure with strong holdings and it's like a regular cabin The hostess is very nice and the yurts have kitchens and bedrooms that are well stocked. There's free wifi and it's a great place to stay in Seward.

Beautifully appointed, definitely unique, and very convenient to Exit Glacier, Harding Ice Fields and downtown Seward. These yurts are super cute but have all the excellent amenities that you could want. A fully equipped kitchen, roomy bathroom and lots of beds for a large group. Very accommodating hosts on a beautiful "campus". We loved this place.

Quite nice Yurts with lots of room and seating options. No toaster, oven, stove top, or TV, so be prepared to use a gas grill, microwave, waffle maker, and small griddle. The bed was comfortable, as were the convertible chairs and sofa (they made into beds). The Yurt is a little different experience as you don't just open a window,...

We stayed in 2 yurts as a party of 8, and had a nice experience. The yurts were comfortable, and fairly well equipped, although it was somewhat interesting in the things not included. That said, we would stay hear again if given the chance. The owners were vry accomodating, and gracious, and did well to make our say pleasant. They...

The real life yurts at Sue's are better than the pictures on the website. We stayed for a couple of nights at the end of our AK trip and the yurt was nicer than some of the apartments I've lived in. Haha! I could have stayed for a long time. Nicest kitchen and bathroom and most comfortable bed we had...

These yurts are pretty neat. The 4 of us stayed in a 24 ft yurt and there was plenty of room for all. The location is very close to Seward. It is maybe a 10 minute drive to downtown. The owners are very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay her again.

My son's family and I stayed in the 2 bedroom Yurt in June of this year. We had an amazing experience. The owner, Sue, lent us her canoe. Very comfortable. There were 2 other Yurts on site. Would be a great place for a family reunion.

We stayed for 2 nights in late June 2016. I was impressed at how clean the yurts were and how well stocked the kitchen is. I also loved the covered porch where we could sit and enjoy the peaceful location. Sue is very helpful and knowledgeable of the Seward area. Overall, this was a peaceful and comfortable place to stay.

This place was perfect. We stayed in her newly finished larger Yurt and had plenty of room for 3 adults, and 2 kids. The beds were comfortable, the yurt was clean, and Sue is very accommodating and friendly. You might want to bring an eye shade if you visit near summer solstice as we did, as it is difficult to...

The yurts are super clean and surprisingly roomy and comfortable. The setting is in a lovely manicured yard and quiet neighborhood. The yurts are different than your average accommodation in that the space is like a work of art with the curved lattice walls and the exposed rafters. The full bathroom is inside the yurt and because of the thin...
