I stayed in one of the bunk beds upstairs, and have no complaints whatsoever. There was plenty of room during my stay, and I experienced no problems with the shared facilities (toilet, shower, kitchen). The place is very low-key, so travelers shouldn't expect anything fancy, but the atmosphere was welcoming and friendly, and the make-your-own-breakfast bar a treat. In addition,... More

I visited mid-June 2015 for 3 nights. I stayed in the Mariner's Cabin, a rinky dink little shack that houses a tiny bed. But that's enough for me - I knew what it was going in. You have access to a bathroom (inside and an outhouse), showers, a kitchen, and a living room area. At night, with enough people, you... More

I found the most comfortable bed ever in the Humpback Shack! My daughter loved the cabin with its bright interior and beachy feel. There are two double beds (one in the loft) that offer a perfect nights sleep. The breakfast options were great and I enjoyed the outdoor shower!

Stayed here on my "mini-moon" in one of the private shacks. I decided to pay extra for the wine and flower petal add-on, but when I arrived at the room they had neglected to decorate the room or leave the bottle of wine. They promptly gave me a refund when I brought it up though. Later that night the roof... More

AlaskanAdventure, Owner at Nauti Otter, responded to this review

I understand your frustration completely! I have contacted my reservation system to inquire about alerting me when people purchase add-on packages to the room. They can sometimes be overlooked due to the way the system is set up so the oversight won't happen in the future. As far as the leak, unfortunately sometimes things like this can happen to houses....

Tne Nauti Otter is a eclectic collection of a bed and breakfast, hostel, cabins, trailers, and a boat. It is this odd mix that helps give the Otter its charm along with its well worn, clean, functional amenities. I stayed in the Captain's chamber, the largest room in the lodge, right off the kitchen and across from the bathroom. The... More

I stayed in "Siren's Sanctuary" private room in the main house. The room was perfect for some rest from my activity- packed vacation. Heather nicely upgraded me since the hostel beds upstairs went to a large group. Her attention to detail was remarkable from the shampoo dispenser in the shared bathroom (with the Nauti Otter logo) to all the oatmeal... More

Though I only stayed here for one night, this is the place I will recommend others who like quiet and cozy to choose it for overnight. (I surely will choose it again if I have the chance to come back to Seward!) The hostess, Heather, is very hospitality, easy going and willing to help. After a long day drive from... More

This place was awesome. It is very rustic and basic but my family and I were fine with that. If you are looking for a 5 star plush hotel this is not the place for you. Heather was great. We came in late after a long day on the Major Marine tour. She was waiting for us at almost 10P.M.... More

Great Location. It's pretty close (less than 10 miles) to the harbor so if you have cruise plan, it will be a good fit. You can cook for yourself. The restaurants are also near the harbor. The room is a little bit small but is enough for me.
