My boyfriend laughed when we dove in and had to take pictures. All we require is a clean place to stay at an affordable price and this was it. The cabin was cute and clean and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The even gave us suggestions on what to see, going from affordable to expensive. This really made...

This was hands down one of the best vacations...ever. Heather (the owner) has connections ALL OVER TOWN...you can do just about everything in Seward at a discounted rate thanks to her. Her Inn and cabins are awesome with each cabin having a different Alaskan rustic theme. The bedrooms in the house also have heir own decor. She gave us so...

The price was hard to beat. All we really eneded was a place to stay for the night. But it was a bit surprising how much mold was all over the inside of our little cabin. It had been cleaned, and there was a glade plug-in that was pumping out a TON of perfume. But when we unplugged the air...

I and my girlfriend had the opportunity to stay at Nauti Otter for two awesome weeks, and it was definitely a big highlight of our Alaska trip! Heather is super welcoming, and all the staff is very friendly and good fun family vibes are all around when you enter this amazing hostel. You can choose from different cabins, rooms and...

My wife & I spent a couple of days (8/12 - 8/13) in Seward and couldn't have been happier that we chose The Nauti Otter Inn. This place is flat out cool. What makes it cool is that Heather the owner really made this a one of a kind hostel & hotel. The decor is so funky that you can't...

My sister and I stayed for two nights at the Nauti Otter. It's a funky and charming property just outside of Seward. We opted to stay in one of the unique lodging options, a vintage camper trailer called the Lumberjack Shack. The Lumberjack Shack was roomy enough for two people to sleep comfortably and had outlets for charging electronic devices,...

We stayed at the lumberjack for three nights. Clean comfortable budget lodging. The owner is friendly & always tried to help us out whenever she is able to. We booked the Kenai Fjord cruise & Exit Glaciers climbing tour with her and got some discount. Highly recommend this place !

I had the pleasure of staying at the Nauti Otter the last half of July and it served as the perfect base camp for all the adventures Seward has to offer, while providing a comforting, cozy place to relax, make dinner, and chat with people from all over the world. I have no doubt that I could write for days...

I spent 2 nights in the Sourdough Cabin. I've been in Alaska dry cabins before and Nauti Otter met my expectations. Heather is very nice and helpful. She arranged for my Seward boat trip and her list of things to do on the way down from Anchorage was well done. If you are ok with walking to the bathroom and...

I went to the Nauti Otter twice in the past couple weeks, once with my sister and another time with my best friend and we all just loved it! We stayed in both the Humpback Shack and the Lumberjack Shack and found each to be a blast. I would say that the Humpback Shack had the more comfortable beds but...
