When life gets hectic, we could all use an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Nestled in scenic Bear Lake, on the edge of Kenai Fjords National Park, our Yurts are the perfect summer getaway. With a full kitchen, bathroom, and comfortable room for the whole family, you'll forget that you've ever left home -- except for the sprawling mountain views that surround you. But the good times don't really start until you leave your Yurt. Just a short distance from Exit Glacier, Resurrection Bay, and the Small Boat Harbor, there's something for the whole family. So take an unforgettable vacation, and come on up to the lake.
When you stay at Sourdough Sue's Bear Lake Lodging, you have numerous activities to choose from. Probably, the most popular activity near the lodge is watching the salmon run at Bear Creek Salmon Weir. The weir is located just down Bear Lake Road from our yurts and is withing walking distance. Bear Lake is also walking distance from our properties.
