Our party of five adults spent two nights in the two bedroom yurt and loved it. It is a unique lodging with very friendly and helpful hosts. The yurt was clean and spacious and had every accommodation we needed. Would definitely stay here again. When you leave, you will be wondering where you can buy and put your own yurt!

This is one of our new favorite places to stay in Alaska! Sue was incredibly accommodating and helpful with the entire visit, including a smooth booking process, calling the week before our arrival to confirm and make sure we didn't have any questions, all the way through to our checkout 3 nights later. Once we arrived she was a great... More

We really enjoyed our night in the Yurt! We were a multi-generational family traveling in AK this summer and needed a place to stay with at least 3 beds. The hotels in Seward just don't offer that. I was thrilled to find Sourdough Sue's close to town. The yurt was warm, dry, and comfortable. We had all the kitchen amenities... More

These young adults were very disrespectful . They took advantage of my good nature and hospitality. I offered to accommodate them and move their luggage for them the next morning to the other yurt. they did not tell me that they had left a whole truck full of items weightin hundreds of pounds to move. If they would have asked... More

Five of us stayed in Sue's largest yurt. It was immaculate and well furnished. Sue was very friendly and helpful. The kitchen was complete (except for oven) and the grill worked very well. Would stay there again without hesitation.

Great yurts that are out in the woods and certainly something different than a hotel. Very well maintained. The oil heater/stove added to the experience. An easy drive into Seward and the beautiful Kenai National Park and Exit glacier.

Though not totally in the woods, Bear Lake is a unique small community. Thanks! More

A great alternative to staying in Seward proper. Don't think that these are basic tents, the yurts are large, clean and have all the amenities. Sue and Greg are great as well. Stay here, you won't regret it.

We try to keep our lodging groomed and clean.. Guests seem to like the fact that it is not your basic cabin. More

Had the pleasure of staying in one of Sue's cabins - which was neatly prepared upon our arrival, with full attention to even the smallest details. The yurts are not your typical bare-bones yurts, but rather a modernized touch - which makes the experience even better for a first time user. Sue and her husband - and their dogs -... More

My first time living in a yurt. It was amazing. It was clean, comfortable. 5 of us shared the smaller yurt and it was not a problem at all. It had good kitchen, toilet and even a grill at the deck. We could not figure out how to close the skylight first night. The hosts were wonderful people. It was... More

First time in a yurt is really fun and we absolutely love it. The place feels cozy and clean while is still roomy for three of us. When we first enter the yurt, it was baked under the Alaska sun, which is a rarely experience during our trip in Alaska, and it is a little hot. Within a minute, our... More

When your son grows up he can come help me with the yurt , he would be a good grounds keeper I bet. More
