Small and cozy. Very friendly host. Slightly smaller rooms than anticipated, but very clean. The big bummer for us was the microwave being in the lobby when we were planning on home-made food for a day or 2.
And the location - was right by the port, just a 10min walk to the Kenai Visitor center and restaurants.
Would definitely recommend.

For four months over summer they park their mobile home on the edge of the inlet and give information to the campers. Their main job is to offer a change service to provide quarters for the showers. ...
... is oosik? It is the fossilized penis of a walrus…yes he made knife handles out of that and showed us a whole box of these. I guess business was slow due to the rain because he took us back in his shop and showed us how he made the knives. He had old equipment but he produced great quality knives.

It's a cute little weathered town - main industry is tourism and fishing. There is a large harbor for small boats. A large small boat harbor.......the surrounding mountains are so steep, and just drop precipitously into the sea. ...
... seemed ok as long as we kept moving...until the end of the trail when it was a straight up climb off the path with about 10 trees fallen over, and slippery dirt preventing your feet from getting any traction. Travis started up first, then a Austin, me, Kaitlin, Gracie, and Scott in the back. Well it was going well until we were about halfway up the climb and slowed down. Austin kept slipping and falling into me, then needed help ...
... captain thought it was probably a mother and child pair. Finally the boat navigated into a large cove where a huge glacier called Aialik glacier ran to the sea. We watched the glacier calve huge chunks into the bay and I was grateful not to be on a kayak. As the afternoon wore on we also had the pleasure of seeing Dall porpoises jumping in front of the he boat and speeding away at speeds up to 50 mph. They are the the fastest water mammals and faster then fish ...
