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.

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

A group of 6 of us stayed at the 30' yurt and it was better than anything we could have imagined! It's a very spacious, bright yurt. Although the walls between the bedrooms and bathroom are partitions, the bathroom is real. It has a real shower, a real sink, a real toilet. The kitchen was great too - it had... More

Was very happy with our decision to stay in Sourdough Sue's Yurts. There was fresh blueberry-banana bread and juice boxes on the kitchen table.
