Sourdough Sue's Yurts
Ranked #10 of 46 Speciality Lodging in Seward
Reviewed 23 August 2012

After discovering yurts a year ago we were so excited to stay in a yurt and definitely not disappointed. The yurt was clean and spacious and bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed using the grill and fire pit at night. Since it is a fancy tent you can definitely hear cars and neighbors, but that did not bother us at all since were weren't expecting a silent retreat in the yurt. Sue is very welcoming and is just a few steps away if you need anything. Excellent stay!

Stayed: August 2012, travelled as a couple

We loved staying in the yurt. It was warm, clean and comfortable. Our hostess, Sourdough Sue, was just the best. It was my birthday and she even had flowers, a card, and some of her canned salmon waiting for us! We couldn't have felt more at home! Thanks, Sue!

We absolutley loved our stay at Sourdough's. The yurts were spacious, comfortable and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and even though it was quite chilly during our stay(rained for two days straight) the oil stove took the chill right off and kept us toasty at night. Loved the small kitchenette and the BBQ that was supplied with the yurt. We especially liked the sound of the rain on the roof at night. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

We loved staying at Sue's Yurts and would recommend it to any of our friends. It was great for a couple or a family with one bedroom per yurt. Sue and Greg were great representatives of Alaskans --- friendly and so interesting. We enjoyed their company (Sue even gave us a taste of her homemade pickled salmon. Delicious!) In a neighborhod just outside Seward by 5 minutes, we drove by an eagle and black bear on our way to town. Wow!

Room Tip: One bedroom per yurt. Sue & Greg just put up a new new yurt for families with 2 bedrooms.

Beautifully cared for yurts just miles from central Seward. Staying with 2 young children was not a problem here and Sue's two labs loved to play fetch with my children. The complimentary muffins were yummy, too. Would highly recommend this place which now has 3 yurts on property.

We opted to stay here instead of in town. The yurt was great! Very clean, roomy, black bear across the yard while I was sipping my morning coffee. Sue was a great hostess, with helpful suggestions. We loved that we were out of town, yet only a 10 - 15 minute drive to activities. This was one of my favorites! I wish it would have been longer than 2 nights, there was a great looking grill to use had we had time to cook out. Would highly recommend a stay here, definitely would come back if the chance ever happens. Thank you Sue, the only thing that wpuld have made it better would have been seeing the Northern Lights via the skykight.

We loved the Yurt! This was our first stay in a Yurt and it exceeded our expectations. It was roomy, very clean, well stocked, all around very pleasant! Sue was very friendly and helpful. We didn't want to stay in the town of Seward and this was just a short drive away.
I would highly recommend Sourdough Sue's for couples, families, anybody!
