It’s a hostel, don’t come expecting 5 star amenities, but with those expectations in check, you will be delighted with the whimsey of the Nauti Otter! With clever signs, themed cabins/yurts, make your own waffles and full kitchen, and lots of nooks for games/family meals, and even bonfires I’d definitely recommend and go back to the Otter on any future trip to Seward! The staff responded quickly to texts when we were late on our arrival and staying there saved us 10% on our wildlife cruise the next day!

The Nauti Otter is a unique and inexpensive option for accommodations while in Seward. Located on the outskirts of this small, yet lively destination on the Kenai Peninsula, the lodge has funky cabins, yurts and a hostel to suit your home away from home needs. A self serving breakfast of pancake or waffle mix is available for your service along with complimentary coffee. Funky and unique is definitely the way to go for a different experience on your Alaska vacation.

Hands off management. Make your own breakfast, strip your bed, take your trash out and clean the shower after you use it. No frills but a nice port in the storm and a unique experience staying in a yert!

We booked online to camp overnigh in a Yurtz. There is plenty of parking and its close to the highway. There is a central place for food storage and breakfast. There is also a place to make a fire and sit around. The Yurtz is very comfortable. Nicely decorated with emergency items in place. There is a skyview in the center of the yurtz that allows daylight to come through. Putting on the eye masks may help. The restrooms are a walk away and shared. It also ran out of hot water after other people shower. But it was clean and nicely maintained. Definitely an experience!

We had a great experience staying at both the Inn and Yurts during a busy July 4th week! Heather was super responsive - slotting our party of 8 into beds and yurts across her properties, arranging baggage movement between the two, and advising us with transportation back and forth (take advantage of tour shuttles!). The Inn is fun - a typical roughing it hostel experience with quirky outdoor spaces....but the Yurts (also hostel setup) are really something special. We felt like we were in an Alaskan forest wonderland - yet comfy in our tents, so many wildflowers, great company fireside, bald eagles, and a stream full of jumping salmon nearby. And my kids loved their morning waffles and pancakes. :)
