We helped our gracious friends Susan and Dennis open their resort for 2013. What an exceptional experience! This was the first time we had stayed in a yurt, or been to Alaska for that matter. Views of wildlife and scenery abound - on the way out and back to the yurts - and during the stay. The kayaks and rafts were easy to use - the yurts impeccable. We barbequed with our friends, stayed up late talking and got up early to enjoy the peaceful environment and to explore the "resort". The water was so clear - and the tide pools full. We kayaked with a humpback whale, saw Stellar Sea Lions, harbor seals, a black bear on the distant meadow, lots of birds, and Dall's porpoises. Guests paddle-boarded. Susan is an exceptional artist and her new gallery shows off her fabulous paintings, and friends' jewelry and hand-painted scarves. A must for those who want a relaxing experience out in nature.
