Seldovia Accommodations

Seldovia is about 30 miles West of Homer accessible by boat or plane. Seldovia was est. in 1852. I took a 2hr wildlife cruise over and stayed in the hotel and flew back the next day. There are 350 residents in Seldovia. Seldovia means "herring". This hotel has 14 rooms each with private bath and the front overlooks the pier where our boat came into the dock. Boardwalkhotel

    Patty, the loop to Homer and back to Anchorage with the boat and plane sidetrips sounds great. Was it just 2 days and one night?

    Hi Patty, I took a day trip to Seldovia from Homer on an earlier trip to Alaska about 7 or 8 years ago. The hike from town, through the deep woods to the ocean, was fantastic.

    Hotel seemed a bit pricey!
