This is one of our new favorite places to stay in Alaska! Sue was incredibly accommodating and helpful with the entire visit, including a smooth booking process, calling the week before our arrival to confirm and make sure we didn't have any questions, all the way through to our checkout 3 nights later. Once we arrived she was a great help getting settled in and started the oil stove for us. All of our gear was soaked after 3 days kayaking in the rain (we were a muddy bedraggled mess) and she set us up with laundry facilities. She was a great resource for local information recommending restaurants, hikes, and fishing spots... she even gave us the fishing bait that worked best for her and her husband (along with bear spray)! The yurts are very clean, nicely decorated, well-maintained, and I would recommend them to anyone. There were 4 adults in our party and the 24' yurt had plenty of room. There is not a stove in the kitchen, but between the awesome grill and the convection microwave it was not an issue. The only dark spot was our neighbor who went nuts and made a scene screaming at Sue for some imagined problem. I was impressed that even then Sue was very professional. She is a great hostess and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here on our next trip to the area and would recommend it to anyone I know.
