If you're looking for rose peddles in your bath this is not the place for you! But if you want to step into a world of unsurpassed beauty, the Orca Island Cabins are not to be missed! Susan and Dennis have created a unique experience in one of the most exquisite areas of Alaska. You'll have the opportunity to see... More

We visited during the 2nd week of August for one night with our 3 children ages 10, 12, & 15. We opted for 2 yurts since there were 5 of us. Five people in one yurt would have been doable for one night but very cramped leaving no floor space. Certainly spacious enough for 3 or 4 people. The yurts... More

First I want to say that the owners are fabulous!! I just was. Ot sure of a couple of things before I went that would sway my depiction... 1) it rains ALL the time here (apparently) 2) you can hear everything from a yurt (rain, wind, etc) 3) the only activities to do here are kayaking (in freezing water filled...

This place was amazing. My family and I just spent 10 days touring the Kenai penn and this was by far the highlight of out trip. The location is indescribable, no doubt one of the prettiest places I have ever been. The yurts are super comfortable, well equipped and very clean. Tons of great toys; kayaks, paddleboards, fishing gear, etc.... More

Arriving to the incredibly wonderful owners and family like helpers, Janet and Yen..you automatically know your somewhere special. The attention that the owners have given to the sturdiness of the bridge and beautiful walkway, the yurt and everything built with love and caring all over the island. This is a true experience that the unselfish owners have provided to the... More

Kind of expensive, but a treat. Had the place to ourselves. Pristine area. Felt like being out in wilderness but really not too far away! The yurt was well appointed, warm & comfortable. I'll certainly go back.

My family spent 2 nights there at the end of May and our only complaint was having to leave so soon! Just spectacular and we all loved our yurt! It was still cool at the time but we were cozy inside and there was so much to do outside that we kept warm by MOVING! Husband and 21 year old... More

I wish I could give this place 10 stars because Susan and Dennis have truly earned every ounce of commendation for this little piece of paradise that they own and operate. I had pretty high expectations for this place, and yet the actual experience managed to exceed anything I could have imagined. First off, Dennis and Susan are top notch... More

My partner and I stayed at Orca Island for a week in mid May this year, at the end of a 3 month trip. It was the most perfect place to enjoy some solitude and all the beauty that Alaska has to offer. Susan and Dennis were the most accommodating hosts, nothing was too much to ask! During our stay... More

We had high expectations of the Orca Island Cabins due to the great reviews on here, and they met everyone of them. If you are a little bit adventurous but looking for a place that will spoil you with relaxation and nature-don't miss the Orca Island Cabins. To start our trip, Dennis picked us up at the pier in Seward... More
