Stayed for three days and two nights in a cabin. We loved the rustic, quite, peacefulness of the cove. Really enjoyed spending time relaxing in the main lodge and the fire pit outside to enjoy the midnight sun. Really recommend renting the kayaks and exploring Resurrection Bay and all of the little coves. There is also a hike where we... More

Kayakers Cove offers hostel-style lodging in the main building and a couple of separate cabins, but the real attraction is the location well away from Seward near the mouth of Resurrection Bay. You'll need to use a water taxi to get there and back. The beauty of the location is seen in the surrounding forest which grows up the steep... More

Kayaker's Cove is a fantastic little hideaway near Seward, Alaska. It's an annual trip for myself and friends. It's inexpensive, the owners, Mike and Raylene O'Connors, are fantastic people who make your stay comfortable and safe. It is a wonderful place to show out of state visitors some of the most beautiful views in Alaska. I can't recommend it enough!... More

Stayed for 5 nights in June on a dive trip in a party of 8 friends; the weather was great, sunny and warm for most of the time and the views were simply breathtaking. Yes, it's rustic; the water is from a waterfall, the loo is a long drop outhouse that can get a bit whiffy (but it's practically in... More

I took my parents to Kayakers Cove for an overnight stay in August. The owner, Greg, saw to our every need. I would suggest renting kayaks through this facility. The equipment is in great shape and the price is right at around $30 per day. Bring wood and a lantern. The kitchen has almost everything you need. I would definitely... More

While we didn't sleep at Kayaker's Cove, we dropped anchor from our sailing yacht in the cove. We paddled over and the people staying and working there were very welcoming. They fired up the wood burning sauna, the only way to warm up after being chilled to the bone and we ate dinner and sat around their campfire before paddling... More

I stayed here 3 nights, and it was a highlight of my Alaska trip. Beautiful location, very helpful staff, great kayaking, comfortable accommodations. There's no electricity, but there's a warm stove in the main cabin. Bring some wood when you come out. Bring all your food, and plenty of charged batteries for cameras. No showers, but you can get the... More

I've been to Kayaker's Cove multiple times now. Every time it has been wonderful. It is such a unique and beautiful place. It's rustic, but comfortable. This is my favorite spot in Alaska.

A highlight of our time in Alaska. A full on rustic wilderness experience with a cabin with a warm fire- ideal. Well equipped communal kitchens etc. We stayed in a cabin which we loved. Was rainy but had two beautiful paddles- one to jumpy cove- saw a bear catch a salmon, an one to fox island, puffin rookery and saw... More
