Across the Bay Tent and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 7 Seldovia B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 18, 2013

What a great couple of nights. Tony was a wonderful host and great cook. The accomodation was comfortable. The sea kayaking an amazing experience - up nice and close to sea otters. I would not hesitate to go back to this place and certainly want to introduce people to this unique bay.

I very much enjoyed the people and the food was delicious. The kayaking trip also was much fun. However, I recommend you book a cabin, as the tents are pretty rustic and bare. Moreover, the smell of the outhouses takes a bit of getting used to. The bikes also were in need of repair.

Stayed here for 2 nights and wish it was longer. Tony was a wonderful host, the food was delicious, the tents spacious, with extra blankets provided for the chilly nights we had. Kyle took us on a wonderful kayaking trip which I will never forgot. Loved the quirky charm of this place and would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful place away from the hustle and bustle of life.

Perfect balance of "rustic" and comfort with delicious fresh food and gracious service. Across the Bay offers spectacular sunsets, peaceful atmosphere and the opportunity to relax and unwind. However, if you are in the mood for kayaking, mountain biking or hike the area offers much to do.
We walked the beach at low tide, explored tide pools, kayaked to several locations, filmed nesting eagles and watched an occasional humpback whale.

We went for our anniversary several years ago. Great accomodations. Yes, it's roughing it, but you've never had roughing it so good. The tents are secure and clean; we were off the ground in comfortable beds. Even during a storm we were safe and snug. The staff was wonderful and you've never had such a wonderful breakfast. This is a great way to explore Alaska.

Room Tip: I doubt there's a bad room here. Your canvas walled tent is nestled in under the trees. I wanted...

I have been to this place about 4 times now with different friends and family. Each trip has left us with lasting, happy memories. There is so much to do-or blissfully do nothing in this peaceful setting. As if the natural beauty weren't enough, Tony & Mary Jane are consistently gracious, fun-loving and attentive. The tents are cozy and roomy, the food is home-cooked and delicious. The meals are served family style so you can have lively conversations with people from many parts of the world. We're already planning for next summer.
